Hiya, I’m excited to have finalized the book’s cover so I can share it with you:
Though untrained as an artist, I felt compelled to do the cover’s art and overall design. I wanted to put my heart in this book, every way possible.
The manuscript is dear to me. Its shamanic approach to the marketplace will help people do what they love for a living. The text also shows how professional self-fulfillment inherently helps build an economy no longer based in war and hate but in love and community service. I’m over the top happy: together, we can work toward creating a world of beauty, moral decency, and human dignity.
After years of work, the manuscript was supposed to be published late 2013. There was only about a month’s work left to be done on the manuscript. Then there was a big delay, and I only could get back to work on the project recently. But now I finally finished the manuscript. Here’s a photo right after completing the last edit:
Rather than getting tangled with a profit-hungry corporation, I’m trying to walk my talk regarding the book’s philosophy, by formatting the manuscript into an e-book myself. It’s a big learning curve for me, for two reasons. 1) I’ve never done this before. 2) Being print disabled, most of my leisure reading relies on audiobooks, so I haven’t read tons of e-books. I want to do this job right for you, which leads me to a question:
What format e-book do you want this book to be: PDF, ePub, or mobi? I’m not asking what you think other people read, because I already have statistics for that. I don’t make decisions based only on statistics—I care about you as an individual. What format do you read? Put your preference in the comment field below, or tell me in social media if that works better for you. Though not sure I can accommodate everyone’s preferences, I am going to really try.
I expect the book to be available in a few weeks. Stay tuned for more info.
Love, peace, and self-fulfillment to you,
Francesca De Grandis
