Michele from Mission Viejo, CA asks:
For the last 2.5 years, I have been writing books in several different types of genres. Unfortunately, I haven’t received a request from an editor to publish my book(s). I’m hoping to become a success author—I love to write and I want to help the household with bills and purchasing another piece of property for additional retirement income. Should I continue on this path in becoming a successful author so I may assist with additional income towards our retirement fund, or is there something else out in the cosmos that I am supposed to do to make money? Thanks for your help!

Michele, what a wonderful question for all of our California Psychics clients who want to publish their own special stories! I am being guided to tell you, Michele, that as I considered your question, I was psychically given a vision of a bookcase, and in that bookcase were several books with your name on them as the author!
For you. Michele, and all of our future California Psychics clients who want their names on those books in the bookshelf, but have not gotten that call or letter from an editor or a publishing company, I am psychically receiving a strong message. That message is telling all of you is that there is not just one way anymore to get a book published!
The next image I receive psychically is that of a horse and a carriage, and then right alongside the carriage is a sleek rocket . My understanding of this unusual picture is that when we would-be authors are thinking of getting our book out there and we are thinking that it has to be approved and published by an editor of a publishing company, our thinking is like the horse and buggy days!
What my guides are telling me for you and all of us writers, is that we need to think about the multiple ways we can quickly get our important words and messages in our books to our future readers. The message I hear for you, Michele, is to look at self-publishing through the Internet. Not sure if this will work? Guess what—many, many bestsellers have come through authors who first had to self-publish because they were turned down by editors. Worried about the cost? For about what you pay for monthly cable, you can have a book listed to be published on demand!
Don’t have the money for self-publishing? I’m hearing the words, “look for a grant aided by your local librarian!” Not sure how to get the process started? All you have to do is research “self-publishing” through your search engines or free local library books.
Michele, I also understand the important question that you had about making money from your books. Psychically I am being shown a picture of a bank book with a computer right next to it. This picture is telling me two important messages for you Michele. Yes, you will make money from your publishing and the path is definitely through self-publishing. The computer alongside the bank book is telling me for the money to grow in your bank account through your books, you will need to use the computer to not only self-publish, but to promote your book!
For you and all our California Psychics clients wanting to learn how to promote your book, I am being directed back to the horse and buggy picture again. My guides are reminding me that the job that your editor and publisher did in the past to promote your book, you will have the opportunity to do yourself. I see a computer alongside that rocket and my understanding of this psychic vision is that your own self-promotion of your book through all the free promotional sites including blogging on the internet can be even faster than going the editor and publishing company route.
Not sure how to promote your book? Again, I am being shown the picture of our trusty librarian and the Internet—it’s all there for you, Michele, and all of us who want to see our names in print!
Michele, and all our California Psychics clients who plan to publish their books, best of luck to you! And remember, the message I receive is plan! All those wonderful books you have dreamed of seeing in print no longer have to wait for someone else’s approval and schedule. This is your own special rocket ship that you can launch yourselves, dear clients and I hope to see those books on the bookshelves soon!
