I’m Anne Wayman. I’ve been clean and sober in AA and NA for well over 30 years now. I’m also active in Nicotine Anonymous, Debtors Anonymous and Underearners Anonymous.
Yes, I’m breaking anonymity because the book I wrote, Powerfully Recovered! challenges the 12 step movement and as the book developed I realized I wanted people to know exactly who was making that challenge. But I’ll go to the wall to protect your anonymity.
Powerfully Recovered! received something like 13 positive rejections from publishers submitted either directly, or later on, through an agent. I’ve never had so many positive rejections nor heard of that many. (My writing blog is AboutFreelanceWriting.com) Essentially each one said something like “good book, author knows what she’s talking about, someone should publish it, but not us.”
About that time self-publishing through POD or print on demand was just beginning and I discovered I could get the book published for about $400, and so I did.
This site is the third or fourth incarnation and it’s now a blog. It’s a blog because once the transition is made, design and redesign is so very easy, and because I find I have more to say and a blog is a perfect way to do that.
About the ads
The block ad on the top of the right column is an automatic feed from Google’s adsense. In no way to I endorse these products and/or service providers – I have no way to evaluate them. You’ll also find google ads in many of the articles – which have the same caveat.
From time-to-time you’ll find other products here that I use or feel confident in. Those show up in 125×125 squares – the same place you’ll also find ads for my ebooks.
Occasionally you’ll find affiliate links in articles, although it doesn’t come up much on this site, but where I do, if you buy from that link I’ll make a commission. Books are sort of an exception. I now use IndieBound which is a network of local booksellers that makes buying local as easy as ordering from the big online bookstores. Again, if you buy a book from those links I make a commission.
Love, blessings and abundance,
