Julie Lines – International Animal Ambassador, Intuitive animal communicator and facilitator of Animal Communication Play Shops / Retreats, has recently published a very special and unique book. Here she tells us how she champions and channels the voice of animals and this gift has naturally developed into her becoming a published author for the very first time.
Three words to describe me would be Intuitive, Creative and Stubborn(!). A little known fact about me is that I have been a professional fund raiser for many years and have raised money for charities by completing challenging treks in the Arctic, Peru and Namibia.
My book, “The Purpose of Species – Animal Messages for Humanity in 2012 and Beyond” is a collection of 44 messages from different animal species for humanity – guiding our evolution and re-balancing as we move beyond 2012. I first began sharing these messages, as I received them, on my blog and the messages keep coming, so there will be more volumes to follow!
I channelled the messages from the collective consciousness of the different animal species. This book is unique and my aim is to share them with all those that are drawn to listen to them. The animals have so much wisdom to share with us and can help us greatly in returning to balance, living happier, healthier and more abundant lives.
Writing this book (becoming an author) has been something that I have always wanted to do – since I was a youngster. It means a great deal to me and I am keen to share the animal messages as widely as possible around the world, for the good of all.
Professionally, it is a strange thing, but as soon as you publish a book, people seem to treat you differently, it is almost as if you become an expert as soon as the book is available to buy. This is great as it helps me to spread the wisdom the animals have to share and to connect and work with more people.
My top three success tips for writing and publishing are:
1) Follow your heart
2) Be brave and do it anyway
3) Find people that will help you, that know what they are doing!
In terms of getting published I decided to go down the self publication route with Create Space (Amazon owned) and this has worked really well for me – it is free, flexible and pays a really high royalty compared to other publishers. They print on demand and deal with all the packaging and posting. You do have to be prepared and able to market your book for yourself though, or get someone else to market it on your behalf.
