Books unite! No wait, what? Let me get my head together here. Hang on. Glasses on, check. Smile on, check. Fingers ready to type, okay. I have an update on the new book and also got a great review to share on my debut book Pathways to Illumination. Thanks for spending some time with me today as I share the news.

I now have a book title. Yes! Versions of the Self. Yes, that’s the title at the moment. Could it change? Sure. Will it? Don’t know. That’s the working title right now. If you want to read more secrets about the upcoming book, you can check out the first progress update on it that I posted last month.
