I am sitting at my desk looking out the window at the lovely soft rain lightly falling down – how nice it is to experience these lovely nights – then I get a call from my dear neighbor, about 6.30pm, who said, “Quick go and have a look at the double rainbow outside!”. Sure enough going out into the backyard there was a magnificent dark blue, a huge bank of white cloud and two extremely bright wide rainbows. I stood in awe at the beautiful sight and felt that I could almost touch the colors as the rainbows looked so close! I thought about the promise that the rainbow represented and then they turned from the rainbow to reflecting upon my own personal journey over the last couple of years and especially few months!
What a journey I had been through – from having overcome a period of adult bullying and the ramifications of it which led me to write my inspirational blog and ultimately writing my book to having it published by Balboa Press and now… selling it through on-line book sites around the world!
My thanks to all those within Balboa Press who have been involved in the process of publishing my book – this process has been seamless and enjoyable!
Why go through a self-publishing company and why go through Balboa Press! Simply put, because you know that the end result will be a thoroughly professional product, well worth any costs outlaid. The advice from those within Balboa Press is ‘second-to-none’ and being a part of the Louise Hay group you will know the services offered will be not only applicable to you as an individual but there are many different options to choose from.

Sometimes it is hard to put into reality the concepts held within your mind and so procrastinate – fear, not being good enough, not having the knowledge of the process, product or publishing world are often the ‘stoppers’ that hold a budding author from ‘giving it a go’. I have of course gone through this and many-a-time thought I was mad to think that my ideas… inspiration and… book would make it, but… I took the chance and hey my book is now published! All thanks to believing that Balboa Press could help me – along with the information on their website and sent to me and discussion – I made a valued decision to ‘make a choice to take a chance to make a change’ within my life – I took that step and said, “YES!” to Balboa Press!
‘Your journey will consist of many small steps and not one giant one, so step forwards in confidence and with courage towards your future and contact Balboa Press to learn what they can do for you!’ I did and look where I am today. I am now onto my second inspirational book and have great hopes for the future, believing that my success is already happening, I will succeed! Without Balboa Press and their service and assistance I would still be mulling over the ideas in my head!
