Starting Your Book Is About

a mirror to the hidden treasures of your being ~

Writing a book ~ no matter what the topic or genre ~

is a potential source of much joy, discovery, compassion,

and connection with the Divine.

Starting a book is not a formula you need to learn. It's an organic growth that can only come out of you. This deeply encouraging book about writing a book assumes that what's inside the writer is what makes the book valuable and the process of writing a book worthwhile. Where most writing books focus on the product, this intimate companion highlights the person doing the writing. As you get more and more acquainted with what's inside you, you'll find that writing y our book flows easily, surprising and frequently delighting you with what ~ and who ~ you find.

"Yes, but ...

How do I begin?"

And this is where many would-be authors come up against a barrier that they sense but don't even know what it is. “But how do I start?” they ask themselves, at a loss for a point of entry ~ as if writing a book were a formula they needed to learn (or learn to crack), rather than an organic growth from within.

Wouldn't it be freeing and wonderfully helpful to recognize these barriers and have the resources to get through them adeptly and confidently? Starting Your Book: A Guide to Navigating the Blank Page by Attending to What's Inside You sheds an encouraging light on what can come up when you're even thinking about beginning to write a book, and offers surprising, profound, and effective ways to center and prepare yourself to receive the writing that comes.

Finally, it leads you through the process of setting down on paper the gifts your heart brings you, anchoring you in the beauty of the writing and the exaltation of the writing experience, so that you can find your way back into this place again and again as your book progresses.

“There is no other book like yours ~ if you will have the tender courage to allow yourself to write it.

The value of a book is not only about the subject matter; it's also about the person, opening to the subject.

There is no other presence like yours, no flavor like the one you impart, no fragrance of Being as unique.”

~ From Chapter 1, “Answering the Call”

"Thank you so much for sharing your ideas and your caring with the world through a book.

I learned things, I felt understood, and I grew increasingly inspired as I turned the pages.... 

I felt that you were speaking from the heart, seeking to be of service from the sincere desire to assist,

not to indoctrinate or impress. And I felt that you and I were having a conversation." 

~Sarah Beaber, writer {Ohio, USA}

"You Are the Treasure You Seek"

Rose Press Flower Essence Remedy for Writers & Readers

{To accompany the book, Starting Your Book}

Starting Your Book

This special Flower Essence Remedy for Writers, called "You Are the Treasure You Seek,"

has been uniquely designed by Rose Press

to help you digest

the inspiration, nourishment, and encouragement

of Starting Your Book

in a (literally) embodied way 

$12 when ordered with Starting Your Book

($15 if ordered separately)

Flowers are your healing friends!

Flower essences are literally the essence of a flower's particular healing quality, distilled in pure water and preserved with a very small amount of alcohol. Every flower has its own healing properties, such as serenity, enthusiasm, creativity, clarity, and a great many more. And when these flowers are picked at just the right time, and submerged in a bowl of pure water, much as with rose perfume the distillation of the flower's healing nature infuses the water, and it is then the water that holds the “medicine.”

Flower essences work by healing the “emotional body” and the "mental body" (which can thereby also heal the physical body), which means that their method and effects are subtle yet potent. You simply place 4 or so drops under the tongue, or in a glass of pure water, several times a day. Or you can apply it as a mist, topically, or in a bath if you don't want to ingest it. A specific flower essence will work for you if its “medicine” is what your being needs.

If you are called to work with Starting Your Book, you will also enjoy using its companion flower essence, "You Are the Treasure You Seek." Designed expressly for Rose Press, this remarkable flower essence remedy will help you move with ease into writing your book in a way that reveals your inner treasures. "You Are the Treasure You Seek" flower essence blend will help you listen within, trust what you find, open to inspiration, and move through formerly stuck places so that you can start writing your book with enthusiasm, joy, the wonder of discovery, and fulfillment. 

{For more details about all Rose Press Flower Essence Remedies for Writers & Readers, click here.}

A lovely distillation and "medicine" for your doubts and fears about book-writing,

this remarkable flower essence remedy

will have you marveling at the limitless inner treasures you have to draw from,

and enhance your inspiration, courage, and creative play as you write.

"[Starting Your Book] was very helpful to get over myself

and find the confidence to just start writing.

Rose gets it right about what freezes up the imagination and passion,

and she offers good insights to help one get over the challenge of the blank page.

Her book is the nurturing teacher you always dreamed of that would coax and praise you to reveal your heart."

~ Linda Eckmann
