Pathways to Illumination Officially Publishes!

Okay, okay, so I debated whether to add the exclamation point to the title of this post and then I thought… “Well heck yes it has an exclamation point! Heck yes I am excited!”

Okay, okay, so I have been saying, “I am excited” for several days now but… Good things never get old, now do they?Β ((Smiles))

I am extremely proud to announce that my first book Pathways to Illumination is now available for purchase exclusively through the RedmundPro bookstore. Wait for it… : “!!!” It is available in both e-book and hard copy formats.

Thanks to everyone who has supported and continues to support my writing journey. I call it a journey because I am always on a quest to better and strengthen myself. I think we all are that way, or at least that is my hope.Β Thanks to Redmund Productions, as well, for your hard work as publisher.

Pathways to Illumination is a chronological account of a woman as told through poetry, as she rises from the darkness of depression and abuse. I hope readers find hope and encouragement as they read and understand that I identify with every step taken, whether it is a step forward or backward. I wrote the poems from my heart, as I have had my share of darkness. I am here to tell you that things will get better.

Here are links to the book buy page and to my Author page at Redmund Productions:

    I know this was hard work Christy, both putting it together but also the journey it took to bring it to life. You should be excited and proud. I have watched you as your poetry grew and changed, wonderfully. I have watched is slivers of hope began to shine through and then burst out, wonderfully. This is truly a marvelous accomplishment, both as a book and a personal journey.

      Val, your feedback as I was writing the past year has been so helpful. You offered me assurance and strength, as well as reminding me that it was okay to be low some days. Sending you hugs!

    I hope your Book will be a huge success Christy…. its only through going through our own trials that we emerge from the dark moments to appreciate the lighter ones.. And those dark moments are what give us courage to write from our hearts…

      It is true, Sue. From the darkness we discover what is lightness and gratitude… if we choose to take that harder path to get there… Thank-you for the kind wishes and I send you love! xo
