My “Everest”

Our gorgeous son, Everest was born on the 12 September, 2013, in Cape Town, South Africa, weighing in at 4.24kgs, nearly 9.5pounds. As I had hoped for, we had a beautiful, spiritual, natural birth. I was excited to have a child be born here on African soil, close to the ocean. It took us nearly a month to find a name for him. We had girls names lined up, but for some reason, boys were proving much harder. In my meditations, I kept getting that the name was something to do with nature. That was the only clue. And so, living by the beach, I came up with everything to do with water and the earth. Alfie and I were out one night and I saw a poster with South Africa’s first woman speaking about having climbed Everest. And the event, interestingly enough, was on my due date. For some reason, I looked at that name very differently and thought, Wow- that’s a cool boy’s name. Alfie gave me a smile, which I could not really interpret- either, "you continue to be my absolutely, beautifully crazy woman", or "hmmm, a bit out there, but let me think about it".

Two weeks from Due Date!

As some of you may know, I am very pregnant! 38 weeks...so 2 more weeks before our official due date! Our little one can arrive anytime though so we are excited and I guess as prepared as we can be. This probably explains why I haven't blogged much or been as involved on-line as before. Its been a beautiful and easy pregnancy where I have wanted to be very mindful and conscious of my actions, thoughts, ideas, food, relationship, books I've read etc. It has been a time of intense creative ideas, to be revealed soon, and deep intimacy with the Divine using me to bring a soul into this world. Blessings to all of you lovely people. More news when I have it. Love, Ariane

My Top Tips for Writing a Book

I’ve published 3 books now: a book with Harper Collins (The First 30 Days), and 2 self-published books, (Pursuing your Dreams and Living Healthier). Each one of these experiences was vastly different, incredibly challenging and came with a host of lessons and things I wish I’d known. So, what did I do? I decided to compile all the tips, advice, hard lessons and experiences of not only my own journey through the publishing world, but also those of over 30 best selling authors I interviewed as well, into a short ebook called: What I Wish Someone Had Told Me About Writing A Book. I wanted to help other fellow writers, potential future writers and anyone who has found themselves struggling through the writing, publishing and marketing side of the book world! The ebook is available for kindle, nook and ipad users and also as a PDF for non-ebook readers. Its organized into 6 easy sections: To Write or not to Write Signing up with a Publisher Putting Pen to Paper Getting ready for Publication Launch time Expand your Book’s reach Everything from what to write about, whether to go traditional or self- publishing, how to find an agent, writing a great proposal, contract clauses to watch out for, negotiating ...
