Next Top Spiritual Author Congratulations!

Wow, what a ride! Since February 2010, I had been a participant in the Next Top Spiritual Author Contest. Thank you James Twyman, Robert Evans, and Randy Davilla.

Almost 3,000 authors started in this contest at the beginning of 2010, and for the following round there were 271 authors selected from those starters. That collection of 271 books and their authors were presented an opportunity to continue through into Round 3.

I was very lucky to have been one of 271 to go through to Round 2 with my book Time For My Life: 365 Stepping Stones.

Today I was on a conference call with the other Round 2 participants, to hear the announcement of the Round 3 winners and… even though I was NOT SELECTED to join those 25 authors who go through to Round 3 of the contest, I am extremely proud to have been among the top 10 percent of almost 3,000 authors who made it into Round 2.

I also had the pleasure of banding together with four wonderful authors and we supported each other through that second round.

Some of you might remember us from the web site that looked like this

The great news is, 2 of our band of 5 were selected to go through to Round 3 – Chris Cade and Scott Brandon Hoffman


I can’t begin to tell you how much fun it was to collaborate with Chris , Scott, Farhana Dhalla and Matthew Welsh

I also would like to give a few special mentions to a few amazing friends who were there every step of the way and who supported the journey in so many incredible ways.


An extra and super special thank you from me, goes to Christopher Westra. Added appreciation from me extends also to, Angela Smith, Faye Rosie (also into Round 3), David Carpenter, Patricia Schiavone and Donna Reiss.

A special thank you also goes to all the people who left comments at my Next Top Spiritual Author voting page and to all my subscribers, readers and followers who voted for Time For My Life: 365 Stepping Stones.

You have already received several very special gifts from me, yet I still wanted to thank you again from the bottom of my heart. You are extremely special people, and I know who you are! Each of you are already on a very special email list of mine after you voted and collected your gifts.

Congratulations to EVERY author who had the courage to register in this incredible contest.

Let’s get right behind those 25 winners and any author who participated, to get that collection of amazing spiritual and self growth messages out to the rest of the world!

Time to party and dance everyone.

Turn up your sound really LOUD and let’s dance!
