This virtual book tour travelled to various blogs and podcast sites around the internet .
Plus, the bonus venue is with author, grief guide, and podcaster, Uma Girish.
Tour Venue #1 is at Olio by Marilyn. See also Marilyn Wilson’s author page here.
Although freelance writer and author Marilyn R. Wilson began her writing career in 2006, she didn’t launch her blog—Olio by Marilyn
—until August 2010. After four years of writing magazine articles, she was feeling the need to explore a wider range of subjects and writing styles. A friend suggested she try blogging. Although she first scoffed at the idea, it wouldn’t go away. It took only writing a few posts for her to get hooked. Over next six years, Olio by Marilyn
grew from a place for the author to write random thoughts to what it is today—a magazine style site covering a wide range of topics from fashion to book reviews. There is truly something for everyone.

Tour Venue #2 is with Mehrnaz Massoudi, author of Never Without Love. See also Mehrnaz Massoudi’s author page here.
Mehrnaz Massoudi, BSc, Certified EFT Practitioner & Author
Mehrnaz was born in Iran and immigrated to Canada in 1983 after the Iranian revolution and in the midst of the Iran-Iraq war. She obtained her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Guelph, Ontario, and worked as a molecular biologist at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto and the University of British Columbia in Vancouver.
Mehrnaz integrates her science background with her knowledge of meditation, Emotional Freedom Technique, and Matrix Reimprinting EFT to guide seekers toward new levels of self-love, courage, and inner tranquility.
Mehrnaz is the author of Never without Love, a profoundly revealing narrative of her own life as an Iranian woman who escapes her beloved, war-torn homeland to find peace in Canada. She finds that peace only when she comes to terms with her own inner conflicts.
Tour Venue #3 is at Jennifer Swanson, the Communication Diva. See also Jennifer Swanson’s author page here.
Communication “Diva” is the tongue-in-cheek, sassy title of podcaster and author (and church minister) Jennifer Swanson. Jenn doesn’t actually believe anyone can be a diva of communication, but does passionately insist that we could all do with a little practice! Through her podcast, online video courses, public speaking, facilitation of customized workshops, individual coaching, ministry and her recently published book, Jenn lives out her personal mission statement: to connect, encourage and empower others and to help people “know they can.”
Aimed at high school and college graduates (and with a gentle nudge toward personal awareness and growth), What They See: How to Stand Out and Shine in Your New Job
takes readers beyond the interview and into the three-month probationary period of new employment. Find out more at www.communicationdiva.com.

Tour Venue #7 is with JZ Bown, Advanced ThetaHealing® Practitioner and Teacher, BC Registered Acupuncturist, with a Dr. TCM dip. At the age of eighteen, JZ had a motorcycle accident and a near-death experience (NDE). The physical trauma and the recovery process, along with a heightened spiritual awareness from the NDE, gifted her with tremendous motivation and passion for healing. This became a passion for ascension through integrating the many aspects of the self in herself and in others.
Over the last twenty years, JZ has continued to increase her expertise. Her goal is to raise the energetic frequency of each of her clients and to expand their consciousness, leading to improved health and ascension.
The highest frequencies are guiding JZ intuitively to identify and facilitate change in her clients’ many aspects and layers, bringing them into alignment with their authenticity so they can experience a more fulfilling life. She treats each client as the multidimensional being that each of us is, addressing spiritual, mental, physical, emotional, and energetic dimensions. She also identifies and resolves limiting programming from her client’s current lifetime and other lifetimes, from her client’s ancestors and more.
JZ is on a mission to help others shine their brightest light. There is magick within each person that is just waiting to be unlocked, activated, and integrated. JZ provides her Ascension Program Package and Group Sessions to focus on bringing in the light; she provides custom sessions to release the dark.
JZ also teaches intuitive and spiritual development classes to those who are ready to receive self-empowerment tools to become more effective creators.
Some of this accomplished healing facilitator’s tools include Medical Intuition, Spiritual Acupuncture, Intuitive Acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine, ThetaHealing®, and Spiritual Healing.
Be sure to connect with JZ and learn more about her expertise at JZBown.com
Tour Venue #8 is at my several Amazon Author Central pages, as we await the arrival of my two new ebooks.
Tour Venue #9 is with D’vorah Lansky who features me in her Virtual Book Tour Hall of Fame.
Knowing I wanted to revise the first edition of Trust the Mystery
and bring it out as an ebook, I signed up this year for D’vorah Lansky’s Behind-the-Scenes Virtual Book Tour training in October and followed her eight-week program with admiration. D’vorah is a wizard at the various technologies required to create and promote books that are self-published.
Her Author Central page on Amazon
is impressive, with so much clear information. Using GoToMeeting software, she showed us the back end of several of her WordPress websites, her InDesign program, and many of her techniques for creating a successful virtual book tour.
Tour Venue #10 is Amazon where my two ebooks are for sale.
By the way, I would love to receive comments on the two ebooks in Amazon/Kindle, because comments really boost their online presence and then more people will be able to find them and benefit by raising their self-awareness.
Shoroplova’s simple, personal stories explore emotions, senses, and energies | the chakras | the mind and all its layers | the word and the interpreter | quantum physics, the Fibonacci Sequence, and sacred geometry | divination tools | alternative healing modalities | paranormal activities, intuition, and synchronicity.
Shoroplova challenges her readers to engage with the mystery through time, talent, and treasure | people, processes, and products | writing, righting, and riting | body, mind, and soul | dis-ease, ease, and wholeness.
Self-awareness is an essential tool to increase our success in the world. Self-awareness is a simple tool to employ—through intention, it can grow every day. Self-awareness allows us to live fuller, more abundant, and more rewarding lives.
Spiraling Self-Awareness uses the wisdom that comes to us through the resonance of partnering the nine-chakra system with Pythagorean Numerology. This ebook also includes material about several Major Arcana cards in the Rider-Waite Tarot Deck. Word etymology brings more light to bear on the journey.
