So I could use your input! We are starting the book proposal and plan on having it done in a week.
What would you like to see in the book? I am currently writing about his birth and early years. Do you think that is something I should put in? I want to let those who have not ever been on the blog to know who Andrew is. I started writing from his birth and will share some of his childhood antics to give some back ground on him to set the stage of his journey through leukemia & beyond.
We are starting the book with his journey home in the beginning explaining a bit about him because a lot of people may not get the whole thing with the white stag showing up without knowing who we are. I am writing this for those who have not read any of the blog which makes it’s harder. I have to remember that most don’t know who Andrew is still.
All we have to do for the book proposal is write 3 chapters. I mean there is more to a book proposal than that but all we need is 3 chapters done. I think I may post some of it here to get your feed back. I want to make sure that the publishers we send this to, are left wanting more! :-)
Any input you have would be great! What do you think we should put in the book? What would make it interesting to you? What do you think would make it interesting for others??
Oh wow! 1) I just woke up and am working on my first cuppa – so I’m not coherent! See? I can’t even spell that right now! *edit* figured it out ;)
Ehem! 2) I didn’t ‘meet’ you folks until last November when Swati told me to get over to your board. So what I have found fascinating is everything that Andrew has said/done since his ascension. I just appreciate how much you and Andrew keep everything so real! So many times, my Guide shares something with me and VOILA! A day or 2 or a week (whatever!) Andrew will share the same thing with Martin. I get chills!
Let me wake up and think more on this – K?
Connie – definitely sharing about his younger years, your experiences with him – I was kind of seeing it starting with his ascension, then going back to hear about his younger years, then about what he’s doing now. I guess because that would hit them with the “kicker”, then explain what led up to that point, then hit them with “and it’s not over”, that kind of thing. I haven’t had coffee yet either, so hopefully that makes sense. Make sure you include the garage sale stuff too!!!

Yep! Yep! And yep!

Nah you don’t need the coffee. I was thinking the same think Connie.
Are you going to sed the book proposal to Dolores?
I think that is the way to go too. His journey home first then going back to his birth, snippets from his younger years, up to his diagnosis, hospital, ascension, and what he has been doing since his ascension.
I will post what I have so far as soon as I have it together enough.
I will be sending it to Dolores AND I have someone connected to HayHouse to send it to as well. I will definitely have the proposal done this week!
Wooohooo!!! Hayhouse too!!
ya I agree
w00t! Don’cha just love it when a plan comes together?
It’s about time!!!! :-) just kidding, I know all things are in Divine timing.
I like the the direction you are planing and I trust that you will listen to your inner guidance as well as Andrew’s as the book unfolds.
Can’t wait to buy an signed copy!
Hugs & love
Well Leila, since nothing else is working for me that I’ve been trying to do, I figured I’d get the book started and see where that goes. Right now comedy is on the back burner. All I have is Kona in Oct/Nov and nothing else. People don’t get it and I’m tired of trying to make them. So I’m going for a mindless job like bussing tables or food runner. That is what I have to do now.
My Aug. 3rd show in Tampa is postponed, I’m guessing forever and the Hollywood, FL show isn’t happening now either. (Sorry Janet) I just got an e-mail today stating that the board met and decided NO on my having my event at their chapel. SO I am done trying to book shows! I am DONE! DONE!DONE! Screw it! People can’t see a freakin good thing when its right in front of them!
Andrew can do more from the Other Side?? Seriously?? Not seeing it! My life sucks even extra not having Andrew here! Martin and I have so much we can teach through our shows and workshops and NO ONE wants to hear it!! SO you know what?? I give up! I’m getting the proposal out so that way I know I have covered all avenues. After the year and a half I have had, it’s just not in me anymore to keep going. All the energy has been sucked out of me! Sorry Denise, but I was right, there is NOTHING funny about my life anymore.
I wish I could do more for you! And if I were in Florida, I’d be all over one of your shows! I know it would be AWESOME!
You’ve been on my heart the past few days. This morning while I was doing something??? something that happened when we were *class mates* waaaay back came up….still don’t *understand* the *meaning* just trust that it just is. ;-)
Look for an email or letter soon (not about that ;) ). I just need a few days to clear a few things from my plate. I have been dealing with a few aligators myself LOL It’s all good!!!!
I sure wish we could just sit and have a long chit chat and just be together in person.
Sending you sooo much love, good thoughts, KNOWING that…
It’s all good!!!!
I love you precious one!
I know what you mean Leila! I miss being being able to go to California a couple of times a year. I feel so stifled right now! Not able to do what I want to do and go where I want. This is the first time in 6 yrs that we haven’t gone to Ca. It’s been a YEAR! I am jonesing for So-Cal!!! I can’t even read the e-mails from the So-Cal Comedy Yahoo group anymore because it pains me to see all the opportunities I can’t participate in!
I feel like I’m going to just sit here and grow old and do nothing with my life. It’s mostly old people in my neighborhood so that’s mostly what I see. I’ve tried to get myself out there but nothing! So here I sit w/o my son to do things with, wondering why the hell I’m even here! I have been hit hard from every angle for over 18 months & I feel defeated, so so defeated. I to
I told Martin about your log in problem so he is looking into it.
Maybe we can talk sometime.
I love you too Leila!
