Wide Awake. Every Day. Amazon Bestseller, Hot New Release!

by Starla J. King on November 14, 2013

WHAT?!  I just launched it yesterday!  And today, my new book  Wide Awake. Every Day. is #30 on Amazon.com’s bestseller list for books in the Consciousness & Thought Philosophy category.  [update Nov 15: now #21]

Oh, AND I just got this screen shot from my (amazing!) publisher, Ros Nelson of Little Big Bay Publishing, LLC.  Apparently the book is also a hot new release (!!)

As I told my niece this morning, I’m somewhere between wanting to dance naked on a stage with my book so more people will see it, and wanting to hide under the covers (with cats) until it all blows over.

It’s a lot to take in (and give out), this book launch thing — not to mention the writing work that went on for months (years, really) before that.  But that’s a story for another time; today, let’s honor this book by giving it the spotlight.

Wide Awake. Every Day. is about awareness, paying close attention to life.  It’s a collection of 365 vignettes and observations from my own life, moments that show that life is anything but ordinary — for any of us.

Learning to be more conscious of each moment (aka awake) takes practice, experimentation, and (sigh) discipline, so I’ve closed each day’s reading with gentle and do-able action steps to help you shift your awareness over time.  One page per day, one exercise per day, we can all turn awareness into a loyal and creative friend.

Why bother?  Because conscious living can turn the disconnected part of our lives into meaningful relationships, into connections.  The tree outside your window, the not-quite-stranger you pass on the sidewalk every morning, the parts of yourself that you hide away — they all have something incredible to offer you… if you’ll just be open to seeing it.

Give yourself and your loved ones this book as a gift, and experience the extra-ordinary in living wide awake, every day.

With love and gratitude,
Starla J.
