New book, music and film, free newsletter

Dear Fellow Writer,

I hope you're well and happy - and that you're writing!

You probably noticed I released another book on Amazon Kindle this week: "The Easy Way to Write a Novel That Sells".

That brings the total EWTW books on Amazon up to five so far!

The Easy Way to Write a Novel That Sells

I have to say I'm thoroughly enjoying the process of re-creating my courses and putting them out into the 'world.'

I especially wasn't expecting them all to do so well.

All of the books are in the top one hundred Kindle main chart - the Romance and the Novel books are currently at #1 - and on days I have 3 or 4 in the top 20 for the 'writing skills' chart!

I have another 20 courses that I'm planning to put up in the next few months. 


Who knows? 

Actually what I want to do is to finish my latest novel, "The Essene Heresy", which has taken a bit of a back seat while I'm re-writing and editing the courses.

Apologies if you're following the story - which was intended to come out weekly - but seems to have slipped to bi-weekly.

These things happen.

But the novel is mostly plotted. I've been using Scrivener - which is probably the only writing software that I can say actually helps the book writing process. I've used lots of other software in the past but Scrivener is THE ONE as far as I'm now concerned!

You can download it for a free trial here: http://www.literatureandlatte.com/

You can use it for 30 non sequential days and then it costs around $40, depending on where in the world you are!

I highly recommend it for longer works.

In other news I've produced a new music video.

It's a rock song called "Never Say Goodbye" and is dedicated to my lovely wife Robyn, of course.

I had big plans for the video. I had story-boards drawn for all kinds of scenarios but again - because I've been so focused on Amazon since we got back from holiday - these had to be simplified.

Anyway, here's the current video version:

If you like the song (or any of my others) you can get some of them from Apple iTunes here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/rob-parnell/id627534447

Next year I'm planning on recording an album of new songs with a band. And perhaps play some gigs. That should be fun!

It's really just an opportunity to do something I've always wanted to do - to create a definitive 'record' of my songs before I get much older!

If the Rolling Stones can still record albums and play live - anyone can.

What else?

I'd hoped to be able to tell you that my movie, First Cut, was going to be playing at the Barossa Film Festival. It looked like it was all set to go but I haven't heard back from them - and the festival is only two weeks away. 

Fingers crossed. I'll let you know if that transpires too. 

So this newsletter was just a bit of a ramble. Apologies if you'd prefered some sort of writing instruction.

To be honest I'm a bit frazzled from all the work I'm doing at the moment.

Till next week.

The Easy Way to Create Your Perfect Life

Dear Fellow Writer,

Great to be talking to you again.

This week we host a special event. 

Once in a lifetime comes a book that can change lives. And, all modesty aside, I believe my wife has written it!

It's about how to easily manifest your perfect life using the infinite power of the Law of Creation.

And the best news is that the first 25 copies are available to you for just 99 cents - yes, less than one dollar!

You're Amazing!

Here's what Robyn has to say about this book:

As you read this book, you’ll gain a greater understanding of the Law of Creation and how it affects your daily life. In the meantime, I’ll briefly share my story so you can see the difference the Law of Creation has made for me.

A lot of the time, I feel so happy I could burst. I love my life. I love waking up in the morning. I look forward to every day.

I’m happy with who I am. I’m happy with the way I look. I’m happy with my relationships. I’m happy with my home, my friends, my work—everything. 

If I’m not happy with something, I change it. Simple as that.

Nowadays, I only allow good experiences into my life.

I haven’t always felt this way. In fact, for the first half of my life, I wasn’t very happy and, to be honest, I wasn’t always a likable person. I had problems with myself and other people. I struggled to get through days. I was often grumpy and difficult to get along with, and sometimes I was mean.

I sent all of this out into the world and I got it back.

Then I became ill. You may have heard doctors report that many of our health problems are caused by stress—negative thoughts and feelings. I realize now that I brought this illness on myself through the negativity in my life.

About this time, someone—who I now think of as an angel—gave me a copy of a book about the power of our thoughts. I read the book and experienced not one, but many light-bulb moments. 

I’m indebted to the little angel—okay, he was a large man—who gave me the book. I went on to read everything I could find on the subjects of positive thinking and the Law of Creation.

Some of the books I read were old, written back in the early 1900s. Wow! We’ve known this information for a long time.

Yet we’re not taught this information in schools. Our parents don’t teach us. We’re left to find this information by ourselves. But what if we don’t know that this knowledge exists? How are you supposed to find something you don’t even know is out there?

If I’d learned this information when I was younger, I could have been happier and experienced a better life, instead of struggling for so long. Imagine what I could have done. I’m grateful that I’m doing it now!

I want to give you all the help, within the pages of You're Amazing, for you to be happy and create your perfect life.

Basically, every person wants to be loved, happy, healthy and successful. We’re human and, in a nutshell, this is what life is about—love, happiness, health and success. But a lot of people don’t know how to get these things or make them happen. In fact, many people get what they don’t  want.

I was lucky enough—thanks to my angel—to discover the information about the Law of Creation

I began to use the information. I began to change my thoughts.

It works, trust me! I’m living proof. All the good things I’ve experienced in my life have happened since I began to practice the universal Law of Creation.

Instead of sending my anger, frustration and dissatisfaction out into the world, and getting it back like a boomerang, now I send out good thoughts and feelings. Guess what I get back? 

You got it! I get plenty of good stuff in return. This is how the Law of Creation works. Simply put, the Law of Creation is a natural law of the Universe, where like creates like. So I create good in my life through my good thoughts.

Your thoughts create your life and the world around you. If you believe something—if you think that it’s true—then it is true. Whether your thoughts are right or wrong doesn’t matter. If you believe something, it becomes your reality.

Did you know that you control your thoughts and feelings? You control your life. No one else does, only you. This is fantastic news.

Did you know that happiness is a decision? Right now, if you’re unhappy, you’ve made a decision to be unhappy. Everything in your life relates back to your thoughts. You can decide to be happy and you will be happy.

Take a moment to smile, really smile. How do you feel? Feeling sad or negative is impossible when you smile. Make the decision to smile as much as possible.

You might not believe that you can do so much good or bad with only your thoughts. But you can. You're Amazing will explain it all to you and how you can create your perfect life. Yes, by using your thoughts in ways which are helpful to you. Too many people allow their thoughts to be unhelpful, even destructive. 
This is the beginning of your perfect life. Make the most of your life and live the dream. I hope you, too, will soon feel like bursting with happiness. There’s no shame in wanting to be happy. It’s not geeky. You’re not being a dork. Happiness is what all people want. It’s why we’re here. You’ll see!
