"There is no reality,
There is only perception."

Time to start a Tarot Book page on this webiste to record all the updates with creating this book. Latest news on the book, it is currently in the hands of the Editors being laid out with the correct fonts and all the pictures in place, etc. Then I will have many chances to look and comment on the layout before it goes to a full print.
I am also now working on the Book Launch. Where to have the event, people to invite and creating the invitations. OMG so many things to work out and prepare. I am amazed how I went from working on the book mode to Book Launch and time to celebrate it mode.
This has taken 3 years of accumulation, from typing it up, reading and re-reading, going back and forth, but it has been a rewarding experience, and over 30 years of all my work, studies and experiences all coming together.
After many nights of writing and re-writing, from getting permission to use the Rider Waite pictures through to finding the right person to assist me in bringing this book into the physical reality, it has been a wonderful experience. I may only write one book ever, so I want to do it right.
Recently, I have added some pictures to share.
I love Fractals, they remind me of our life's journey and our experiences coming around and around, within and also without.
I also like to use the colour gold because when you tap into your shadow side this is where you will find all your gold!
This is another reason I like to use the gold key, and I use heaps of gold keys throughout the book.
Once the book is published, you will be able to purchase the Book here through my online Shop.

Met with my Publisher Pat again for a coffee and to discuss the progress of the book. All year the book has been going back and forth now to the lovely person who has being laying out the book and formatting the pages. It is really starting to become real.
We discussed the next phase which is the launch of the book. I have been scouting for venues and listing some fabulous ideas on how to make the evening a grand success. Looks like I am aiming for Late March or early April, before the end of daylight saving.
My book is currently at the Printers...OMG...it is about to become a real artifact! My publisher has rushed it through so he take this sample with him to a huge Chinese Publishers Convention in China, from there he is taking it to Queensland and then Sydney for special events he is attending there, then it is off to South Africa for more publicity. He will post me back some pictures of my book doing its whirlwind trip around the world so I can share and blog them here.
Cannot wait to hold the book in my hands! In the meantime, he are some pictures of book travelling around the world.
The book is finally in my hands yeay! What a journey to get it to this point. One last final edit, because things look different when you see it in actually book mode. I am happy with the Printer I have chosen, that was process in itself! After my final check it is off to the Printers.
