My book proposal won a contest! THE HEADACHE HEALER’S HANDBOOK: A Holistic, Hands-on Somatic Self-care Program for Migraine Relief and Prevention was awarded the Balboa Press self-publishing Master Package (value: $8149). It’s awesome!
I feel amazed and grateful that this company, founded by the inspiring author and healer Louise Hay, “got” my writing, my book, and my work. It feels wonderful to be seen and received in this way.
The Writer’s Workshop spurred me on to refining and updating my proposal and finishing and tightening up my book, which is nearing completion. Thank you to Hay House Writer’s Workshop and congratulations to my fellow prize winners.
I’m so excited to bring empowered headache and migraine self-care to the world to help the millions who suffer. Stay tuned!
The official announcement from Hay House:
We were delighted with the response to our very first online Writers Workshop course contest, our inaugural group of graduates who took the course last year submitted so many fresh ideas. Our Editorial team read over 100 proposals [from 1400 attendees] and finally picked Romanian author, Dr. Dragos, as the overall winner of the Hay House contract for his book, The Pursuit of Dreams: Humble Beginnings, Real Life Stories, Wishes Fulfilled.
We also awarded a Balboa Press Master Package to Jan Mundo Headache Coach from New York, for her book, The Headache Healer’s Handbook: A Holistic, Hands-on Somatic Self-care Program for Migraine Relief and Prevention. The Inspire Balboa Press Package goes to Jessica Baker, LAc from Colorado, for her book, Plant Songs.
It takes so much courage and commitment to complete a full book proposal and send it in for consideration. We are really aware of this and want to applaud all of you for taking such a big step on your publishing journey. Please don’t stop now, you have already done the hardest part! As you will have learned from the course, there are many ways to get a book out into the world these days, the right path is waiting for you.
