Emma’s parents think she is dead.

It started with a shift in atmosphere. The forest greeted Emma with starting force. At first she couldn’t move her limbs, and then her vision was rendered useless, paralyzed to the forces within the forest. The voices came in a dream at first, commanding her against her will deeper into the forest. After months of fighting for control, it took only one moment to lose her human life forever. Now she is nothing more than an Essence, watching as her life unfolds without her.

  3. Store-bought food is filled with preservatives and unnecessary
    additives that can be bad for your health.
    It comes with a huge 9 cup work bowl, and is ideal for
    combining a great deal of ingredients at once.
    You initial need to understand how every single of them works and appear into the rewards and drawbacks of every one of these appliances.

  4. Hi Mandi, my name is Cheyenne and I am 13 years old. I am writing a book too. I have watched all of your videos and I find them very inspiring. You’re one of the reasons I wanted to start writing a book. I read your excerpt and it was amazing. I couldn’t stop reading it and when it ended I was like Noooooooooo. You are a very talented writer. I can’t wait to read the whole thing.

  5. Excellent goods from you, man. I’ve understand your stuff previous
    to and you are just extremely excellent. I actually like what you’ve acquired here, certainly like what
    you are saying and the way in which you say it. You make it enjoyable and
    you still care for to keep it wise. I can’t wait to read much more from you.
    This is really a wonderful website.

  6. Excellent Job Mandi. I have watched all of your videos and thank you for the advice and ‘how to self publish’ information you have provided. Do you have a video for how you Marketed your book online? Obviously you had a big step up with your subscribers on Youtube, but would you have any other ideas to gain attention online? And what advertising design / print company did you use for webpage, business cards and posters etc. Thanks

    • I don’t do much marketing. Everything is mostly through family and friends, what you see through social media, and book signings and workshops. I pay for any ads I do and I’ve only ever done them through Facebook, but I’ve only done that twice.

      My website is through WordPress and what you see is a template that I modified to fit my needs. Like my book cover, my business cards and posters were designed by myself. I upload and print my designs through VistaPrint.

      I hope that answered your question!
