It’s done. My second From Cluttered to Clear In Just One Year: Your Room-by-Room Home Makeover, is finished and available at Amazon.com. It is a practical guide to clear clutter and create good feng shui in every area of your home.
What a journey it has been to bring this book to life! I didn’t know I was writing a second book when I began writing short articles for my Clutter Clearing Community Membership site (no longer in existence) in 2012. Once I’d written articles about all areas of the home, it made sense to make the information available in the form of a book.
It made sense to convert my content into a book and ebook, but I dragged my heels about jumping into the book publishing task again. I’d written and published my first book, Rock Scissors Paper: Understanding How Environment Affects Performance on a Daily Basis, in 2010. I remembered what a lengthy, expensive and stressful process it was to bring that book to completion. Also, coordinating care for my mother who had Alzheimer’s drained me of the extra energy I would need for such a big project.
Mom died in July 2016. When I finally worked my way through the worst of the grief from such a significant loss, I was able to re-examine my business goals and opportunities. This book, From Cluttered to Clear in One Year, was waiting for me to pick up again.
I wasn’t sure how I could afford to self-publish another book, especially because my business had taken a serious hit during the years of Mom’s decline. But, I forged ahead, trusting that resources would show up if the book was meant to be. Just making the decision to continue to work on the book seemed to attract the right help and funds to complete this project.
Miraculously three women showed up at just the right time to edit the book. Then a business associate recommended a woman who could design a book cover, format the book for print and Kindle, and upload the manuscript to both Kindle Direct Publishing and CreateSpace. This is an example of resources showing up when you’re on the right path! The book was meant to be!
From Cluttered to Clear In Just One Year is a bit different from other clutter clearing books because in addition to clutter clearing and organizing information, it also provides information for creating good feng shui in every room of the house. I hope you will join me in welcoming my book to the list of valuable clutter clearing and organizing books out now available. Buy it. Read it. Write a review of it on Amazon. Recommend it to others. It was written for you.
