10 KDP FAQs – What is it? When Did it Launch? When Are KDP Royalties Paid? Etc

10 FAQs About Amazon's KDP10 FAQs of Amazon’s KDP – What is KDP? When Did KDP Launch? How/When Are KDP Royalties Paid? Etc.

What Is KDP and When Did It Launch?

KDP stands for Kindle Direct Publishing, and is Amazon’s book self-publishing arm  (both print and ebooks). KDP is a way to reach millions of readers on Amazon – for FREE by allowing authors and creatives to self-publish their own content.

This content can be books (non-fiction or fiction) or even low or no content books – diaries, journals, planners, sketchbooks and more!

As for when KDP launched – according to Wikipedia:

“Kindle Direct Publishing is Amazon.com’s e-book publishing unit launched in November 2007, concurrently with the first Amazon Kindle device…In 2016, Amazon also added a paperback option, which uses print-on-demand technology with the goal of offering digital and print to self-publishers.”

How Long Does it Take to Publish a KDP Manuscript?

How Long Does it Take to Publish a KDP Manuscript

With KDP you can upload your manuscript and once it’s approved it will be available usually the very next day.

For my first manuscript, a simple Scotland Travel journal it took me hours (a few tears and hair pulling) to get it submitted.

You basically have three KDP screens to go through…

The first page has:
Book title, Series, Edition Number, Author, Contributors, Description, Publishing Rights, Keywords, Categories and Adult Content

The second page has:
Print ISBN, Publication Date, Print Options (interiror paper type, trim size, bleed settings, paperback cover settings) Manuscript, Cover, Book Preview

The third and final page has:

Territories, Pricing, as well as Terms and Conditions.

KDP pricing - page 3
Once you get the hang of it though it can take about 10 minutes to go through all three screens. Most of my books are up in less than 24 hours but sometimes over the weekend it’s taken longer to go “live”.

What is KDP’s Expanded Distribution & What Rate Does It Pay?

“Expanded Distribution can help you reach more readers through bookstores, online retailers, libraries, and academic institutions. ” – says Amazon on the KDP  support site.

Note that it’s not offered on all book sizes…To see which trim sizes are available look at this.

KDP EXPANDED
Click the pic to visit Amazon’s page on Expanded Distribution

The royalties you will get will be much smaller than just selling direct to Amazon customers but some would argue a little bit extra is better than nothing at all. Sometimes I click expanded and sometimes I don’t. It depends on the time of submitting my journal or planner.

Again as Amazon states:

If you enable Expanded Distribution for your paperback, the royalty rate is 40% of the book’s list price effective in the distribution channel at the time of purchase, minus printing costs, applicable taxes, and withholding.

kdp royaltiesWhen and How Are KDP Royalties Paid?

KDP  Royalties  are paid on a monthly basis – approximately 60 days after the end of the month in which the royalties were earned. So if you were looking at January sales you’d get paid at the end of March (as long as they meet the minimum thresholds).  February gets paid end of April and so on.

Direct deposit

Choosing direct deposit, also known as electronic funds transfer (EFT), as a payment method allows you to receive your earned royalties without a minimum threshold before the funds are released to you; in a more secure and environmentally friendly way than paper checks; and in your local currency. There’s also a handling fee of $8/£8/€8 per check payment to authors who reside in the US, UK, or EU countries/regions where we offer direct deposit. Direct deposit payments do not have a threshold. 

Love that I get paid straight into my UK bank account at the end of every month…(Just like on Amazon Merch). So between that and RedBubble and TeePublic – I’m getting paid print on demand royalties every two weeks. Love making money while I sleep!

How You Change the Book Price in KDP?

It’s easy to change the prices of your KDP book. I often raise and lower prices of books.  Often if it’s a book I’ll be purchasing myself I buy it at the low rate (with almost no royalty margin) and then as soon as it’s been dispatched I go in and raise the price.

KDP change price of book Under Edit Book Pricing

All you need to do is go to the right of you Book Shelf and click the three dots next to the words promote and Advertise (left side of the above image), then choose the third option down “Edit print book pricing” (right side of above image). This will take you to the third page of the submission process. Then you can change your price…You can also choose the primary marketplace. I always mix it up between US and UK personally.

KDP Min/Max Pages and Uploads – What Can I Do?

First let’s talk manuscripts, your minimum page count is 24 pages, and the maximum page count depends on ink and paper, but for those using white paper and black ink it’s is roughly around 800 pages! I can’t even imagine that.

KDP max upload
This was taken from a FB group

Speaking of the unimaginable….

Now to the volume of uploads there have been many rumours flying around about this at the moment.  It looks like 1000 a week. Who on earth is uploading 1000 manuscripts a week? Bonkers.  Spammers.That is not a tactic I’d recommend but then I am in this for the long haul and more of a tortoise than the hare.

Have you got any KDP questions?  Feel free to comment below.

KDP is my main focus for 2019. Here’s my first KDP post about it, right back when I started.

Trip Six (of Twelve) Galashiels and Hawick

Trip Number Six of Twelve - Galashiels and HawickTrip Six (of Twelve) Galashiels and Hawick

As it’s the summer, I felt that it’s time to stay a bit closer to home. I just want to avoid the heat, the copious amounts of families and higher prices of travel. So trip six in my year of travel.

I was able to mix business with pleasure this trip. I headed down to Hawick on Sunday morning. My first stop was in Galashiels. I have no idea how I’ve never been there before. I took some time to wander around the town, to take it in and to take some pictures. It’s a quaint wee place. Wound up spending a bit of money in a charity shop buying some new shirts and a lovely sweater (all for under thirteen pounds!)

Hawick New Clothes

I do love a good charity shop haul. Anyone else out there like them too?

Onwards to Hawick

Like Galashiels I’d never been to Hawick so it was quite the adventure. I took the route through Jedburgh to Hawick and it was a stunning day for a drive. I arrived to my B&B, checked in, set my stuff down and headed out for a late lunch in the heart of Hawick. I got a lovely sandwich at the Black Horse and ate al fresco. I particularly liked the sound of the town’s clock, opposite it, with its horses racing in circle.

After lunch was a wander around the town and along the river. Then returned to North Bridge B&B for a rest before dinner.

After a rest, I met up with my friend and fellow trainer Lesley. We had a fantastic Italian meal and lots of laughs ahead of our full day of training

Canva Training in Hawick, Business Gateway

Blogging and Canva Training in Hawick

The next morning it was down to breakfast and out the door to the Heart of Hawick where Business Gateway is based. Lesley kindly allowed me to deliver a bit of blogging training and a mini Canva workshop too. It was a long and wonderful day. We had a blast. Once done Lesley and I took a long trip home.

I decided to go south west out of Hawick to get to the main motorway that is the artery between England and Scotland. It was a stunning drive back through the country to the M73.  At times it was fog so thick we had to slow down to about 30 just to make it through.

So down to Galashiels and Hawick – makes it my “trip 6” for the year – out of twelve.

Really it’s more than that, but we’re calling it number six.  Next up it’s Rhu, Edinburgh and a long day trip to Glencoe with my old school friend Kim. Can’t wait for this.

More soon. Thanks for reading if you read this far.

Instagood…

Here are a few more pictures from Galashiels and Hawick over on my personal Instagram (#caligaluk) if you’re interested…You can read the full text there too.

Trip Number Five (Of Twelve): Belgium and Manchester too

Trip Number Five of Twelve - Manchester and Belgium

Trip Number Five (Of Twelve): Belgium and Manchester too

If you have been following my blog at all this year, then you will know that It is a year of travel for me…and as such it’s time to update you on the latest trips.
So here we are – six months in – and May was a double trip month for me. First was a short weekend getaway to Manchester  followed by Brussels birthday celebrations.

May’s Significance for Me

May has always been a special for me. It’s a month that I have almost always spent with my father in California. His birthday falls in May and so, more often than not, I wanted to be there with him to celebrate – ever year just about. I think his birthday mattered more to me than it ever did him but that’s ok. It was arguably what might be considered a tradition to spend it with him.

So this year, the first without him in California, I decided to celebrate him in Brussels. It also coincides with a friend Kimba’s birthday so am celebrated with her there too.

But First, Manchester

So mid May it was down to Manchester for a Merch UK Meetup. It was just about a dozen or so people who are print on demand side hustlers too. To be fair, they were all much more successful and experienced than I am but I enjoyed meeting some new people and reconnecting with people I’d already met in London and Seattle last year. I decided to stay at the hotel the event was at to make it easy on myself.
Then the next day it was a full day of sight-seeing with my friend Rachel who I’d not seen in about eight or nine years. When I knew I was going to the city, I do what I always do – and checked my social media connections to see who might be where I am going. Then I message and see if they’re interested in meeting up. Lucky for me, Rachel was and we had a blast walking, talking, eating and sight seeing. We did the double decker bus – which are always fun.
Then around seven that night I got the train back up to Scotland. It was a wonderful weekend in Manchester. I really do like that city.

Next Up, It’s Off to Belgium

Then at the end of the month it was time for my next jump over to the continent. This time it was Belgium. I flew Ryanair for the first time in probably a decade. Landed in Brussels Charleroi Sud Airport and got a shuttle bus to Brussels Midi Station. Conveniently though, my friend met me off the boss and walked me around the corner to the Hotel Pullman which was attached to the Midi train station. (Good job Kimba!) 

That night we hopped the underground four stops and spent some time wandering around The Grand Place or Grote Markt – which is the central square of Brussels. It’s filled with amazing buildings, shops, restaurants, cafes and tourists. We had a nice meal in one of its galleries off the main square.

Day Two – Kimba’s Birthday, In Bruges

Day Two: It was Kim’s birthday so it was her pick with what she wanted to do. She chose a train trip to Bruges with a quick stop in Ghent en route. It was a long, fun-filled day of being tourists, walking, eating, talking, and taking a ridiculous amount of photographs. We didn’t see much in Gent and decided to get back on the train to go to Bruges.

The first thing we did in Bruges was take the boat tour. It was one of the things I was most excited about when heading to Bruges, and probably as such, ended up being a bit of a let down.

It wasn’t bad, not by any means, merely a bit anti-climactic. Plus a little tip for you, if you do the trip – sit in the single middle seat rather than on the sides. Two fat people got on our boat and I felt off kilter the whole time! Not only that it made it hard to take pictures hanging off the side of the boat a little like a contortionist.

When we got off the boat we finally found somewhere to eat. We were hangry by that point and wound up in, of all things, an Irish pub. The service was kind but it was slower than heck. They’d just been slammed by an Irish Fire Department influx of customers I guess. Whatever. The food was good. In fact all meals were good in Belgium.

After lunch it was off for another sight seeing bus – a small open top. Arguably my fave one of all the sight seeing trips we took. It weaved around Bruges, down roads, passed windmills, over canals and back again. (There are four remaining 18th and 19th century wind mills between the Dampoort and the Kruispoort.)

We did a bit more wandering around before getting the, 5:30, one-hour train back to Brussels.

Birthday Dinner

After resting our tired bodies for an hour it was back out again for the Birthday Dinner at NONA a pizza place, Rue Sainte-Catherine.

A place that prides itself on “Proper Neapolitan pizza” – it was a slightly ho-hum pizza, to be honest, but still not bad by any stretch.

After the meal we wandered back to our usual place, the Grand Place, for ice creams and I treated us to scarves. We got the same pale blue Belgium scarves. How cute are we?

That was a nice way to end a birthday in Brussels, I believe. Hopefully Kim did too…By the time we got back to the hotel room we’d done around 26,000 steps which is about 15,000 above my normal daily step count.
As Kim’s birthday ended my father’s began.

Celebrating Dad

I’ve been blogging a fair bit about dad this year already….and I truly believe I am handling his passing in exactly the way he’d want and expect from me. Namely, I am living, traveling, working, seeing movies, hanging with friends and celebrating him every opportunity I get.
His birthday was celebrated in Brussels and it was a good one from start to finish. Breakfast at the Chicago Cafe (right near the Pizza joint from the previous night). The highlight at breakfast was the main woman there (possibly the owner) who was, quite frankly a chirpy Belgian Hoot. I can still hear her cheery “Bonjour” echoing in my ears – weeks later.
Then it was off for a day on the double-decker buses. The Atomium was our first stop. Clearly a cool landmark from the outside, but the trip up it was an absolute waste of money, to my mind. It would have been better if it had some windows to take pictures from. We managed a few shots on the stairs down but that was it.
Thankfully we got a “free ticket” to the Design Museum which made it almost worth my while. Kim and I choose to spend that hour apart as I was more interested in Design than she was…
Engineer Chair, Design Museum Brussels
At one moment I came upon a chair that reminded me of my father’s and the inscription on the piece made me well up a bit….if I am being honest with you. But that wobble aside it was a good day with no real sadness or tears.

After The Visit to Atomium…Back on the Bus

After we had our few hours there at Atomium, we got back on the double decker bus and took it to an area Louise where we got off to take pictures. Trust my stomach to take that moment to throw an absolute fit. So we made our way to a cafe down the hill for a tea and pit stop (just in time). 
Once I felt better we walked back up the hill to take in the scenery – and could even see our hotel in the distance. We did a bit more walking around the area, hopped a tram for a few stops, walked some more before taking an elevator down the hill and heading back to the hotel room.
It was evening of Good Vibes in Brussels. Sun shining, people smiling.

Cheesecake Cafe

After another bit of rest in our hotel room we got our second wind and it was time to get back to Place De Brouckère to have a birthday celebration for dad. Opted for Fish & Chips – not something dad would have enjoyed but a worthy choice none-the-less, for me. Afterwards Kim got her waffles and I had a double scoop of ice cream on a cone. We celebrated him in style at Grote Markt.
Happy Birthday Ralph, Ice Cream at the Grand Place, Brussels
I swear I’d have gained a stone had we not been averaging about 22,000 steps a day!

The Last Day – Destination Unknown

Our last day was Friday. We got up with the intention of seeing where we could end up. We a priced trip EuroStar, fast train, trip to Amsterdam but when the guy said 337 Euros, we pretty much felt our jaws hit the floor. So Antwerp it was! It was an easy trip – helped largely because we accidentally ended up sitting in first class for the first half hour…
Arriving at the train station – it was a sight to behold. Clearly one of the most beautiful train stations in the world. Absolutely incredible architecture.
We hopped another sight-seeing bus immediately and got off at the Antwerp Ferris Wheel at Steenplein and headed to their Grote Markt, a main square, for some lunch. After a bit of a wander we split up for some free time and reconnected back at the Ferris Wheel to catch the bus back to the gorgeous train station and home.

The Last Supper

So here we are, we had one last night in Brussels and therefor after a rest we headed back to the Grand Place for dinner. We didn’t have a specific place in mind for this last supper, and thus it took as a while to find a place to stop to eat.
We eventually found a decent spot and had a lovely meal Arcadi Cafe – at the entrance to Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert. Again I opted for Fish and Chips. They had a fun pillar with currencies from around the world that was pretty impressive to look at. 

Then, naturally, we had to find ourselves a dessert. Nothing much was appealing to me. I fancied Cake but there were not a lot of “cake places” so I settled for another single scoop of ice cream. Kim wanted waffles from the famous Maison Dandoy but as in typical fashion – it was a Friday night at 9pm and they were closing. The line was 30 deep and as she joined it, was told they were doing no more. Ridiculous.

Oh well, here is a tip, right next door is probably just as good and much cheaper with no line…

Summary of the Trip to Belgium

Having been in Berlin the month prior, it was interesting to compare the two countries. Frankly I preferred Belgium I think.

Both were nice but Belgian people just had a warm friend attitude toward its visitors and Berlin, well, no so much. I will likely go back to Berlin again, to see my friend Neil, but I will definitely go back to Belgium again as soon as I can! I’d like to spend more time there, even though I think I spent more money there. 

I did actually notice that Younique is launching in Belgium soon…so perhaps a good excuse to go back over again!
Here’s to the next trip…a more local one to the Borders town of Hawick.

Trip Number Four (of Twelve): Berlin, Germany

Trip Number Four (of Twelve): Berlin, Germany…

Can’t believe we are already four months into the year, and thus my fourth trip for the year to Berlin is now under my belt.

Thea's Trip number four (of twelve) Berlin, Germany

Traveling to Germany was one big adventure from start to finish. In this post, I will highlight some things I love (and hated) about Berlin….

I could probably write several posts about Berlin, if time permits, but here are a few thoughts I have after visiting Berlin. (One post I would like to write is how Berlin Compared to Glasgow).
trip four to berlin - sightseeing

Berlin: It’s Massive

At 891.8 km² – this city is huge and is very busy. With over 3.5 million people living there, and however many visiting at any given time, Berlin is pretty crowded everywhere.

So you need to work out how to navigate the city. Public transport is very effective, well once you get the hang of it. It may be about my favourite thing about Berlin.

There are buses, trams, Ubahn/Sbahn and trains. The best thing about Berlin was how all transport integrates with one ticket. Not only that, it’s the honour system. You walk on and off of all their transport without really having to use your ticket (except for maybe buses where I did tend to hold my ticket in my hand as I passed). But really once you validate your ticket in any machine on your first journey you’re pretty much “good to go”.

I totally can’t imagine Glasgow (or even Britain) doing such a thing. I loved it.

The Brandenburg Gate is an 18th-century neoclassical monument in Berlin

Berlin Architecture is Amazing

For those like me who love looking at beautiful buildings this is a place for you. Do it on foot and consider taking one of the many boat trips along the rivers and or canals.

There are 170 museums and galleries, countless government buildings, churches, and monuments too – all of which, pretty much, were compelling. Seeing bits of buildings missing after having been bombed or shot at is pretty incredible. There is, and I guess pretty much always has been/will be, a lot of building and repairs going on after such an incredible amount of bombings.

So inevitably there is this interesting juxtaposition of old meeting new in Berlin. Or I guess in some cases new being built to look old. It’s fascinating. The downside of all this construction is that many of the most beautiful buildings had scaffolding around them or fences and so forth. Still it’s just one of those things.

The Fernsehturm is a television tower in central Berlin, aka TV Tower

Show me the Money – Cash is King in Berlin

One of the strangest things of note about Berlin, and the fact I loathed the most, was that card usage was less prevalent on smaller ticket items. So if you are going to Berlin make sure that you are always carrying a bit of cash. As someone who usually pays for everything with a card ans seldom has cash, I found that a bit disconcerting, even frustrating.

Even more challenging to me was the fact that there were not really that many ATM machines as readily available as I am used to in UK cities. Also a bit scarce for my liking, in such a big city, there were not tons of banks all over the place like they are here.

Again these are just my observations.

Thankfully I had Neil to pay when I needed cash and I eventually managed to find a bank to pull some out to pay him back! If I return to Berlin I will no doubt be more prepared, regardless.

River Spree Berlin, Boat Trip

Best Ways to See Berlin: Walk or Bike

I am a walker myself but Berlin is definitely a biking city with shops and apps to rent bikes all over the place. Neil kept trying to convince me to get a bike so we could ride around the city and see more but I wasn’t feeling it. I found Berlin to be overwhelming and bikes riding on pavements as well as the roads, cars coming at you from different directions and don’t get me started about pedestrians – it just felt too stressful on my first trip. Maybe next time I’ll feel more confident.

So walking it was. I covered around 25,000 steps each day on average (best was 28,000) and on foot was able to take photos everywhere. Ended up with over 500 photos between my camera and my phone. Will take a while to go through them all!

It was nice to see Berlin on foot and cover areas like the East Side Gallery, over the Oberbaum Bridge, passing the Molecule Man statue and so forth. In those five or so days I walked from one end of the city to the other and felt all the better for it. Well sort of. I think I managed to dehydrate myself, the effects I am still feeling in my body. Note to self: take more water next time.
Boat on the Spree Berlin

Or Take a Boat Along the River Spree

Another good way to see Berlin is by boat. It was one of the things I really really wanted to do and when it came to the opportunity it was the most stressful part of my own trip so please learn from my error in judgement…

I took the Sbahn over toward Alexanderplatz and got off early and took a walk. When I arrived there were several people selling the sightseeing tickets, and I hemmed and hawed of whether to do the bus or boat in the end as I only had a certain amount of time before meeting my friend Martin…So I bought a single boat ticket for fifteen euros from a guy Joshua, who was working for a new company that had just launched the day before (*first warning sign).

He told me to get on the bus and it would take me a few stops to the river where I would then be able to board the boat.

I got on the bus, (the only one on the bus – another warning sign) the new audio system was a bit glitchy. I finally asked the guy working with the driver where I should get off and I was effectively a stop passed it. He basically said go to the bridge and go down. He didn’t specify which side of the bridge, which way the boat would be going etc. It was supposed to simply be a hop-on-hop-off boat. Well could I find the place to get on? Could I F**K!

I saw a boat passing and figured I ought to be able to get on at the next stop since they were running frequently. Could I find the next stop? Could I find ANY stop? No…

Having a complete meltdown, unlike I’ve had in ages, I ended up walking all the way down the river to just opposite Berlin Hauptbahnhof. I was able to get on at the Reederei Riedel Anlegestelle boat place. The ticket they gave me was a one hour round trip so I had to go back there. By the time I got on the boat, I didn’t really even enjoy it. Next time, if I go back I will do better, for sure. The one I wanted to do was….The Bridge Tour of Berlin: The popular boat trip along the Spree river and the Landwehr canal shows numerous sights of Berlin – and more than 60 bridges.

Until Next Time, Berlin

Well that’s it for this post and perhaps I’ll be inspired to write another. Part of me wants to return to Berlin soon and part of me is in no rush to go back. The next trip, next month, will be Rome, Copenhagen, Iceland or Belgium…This time it’s not my call, it’s Kimba’s for her birthday. So watch this space guys!

Abraham Says Hi – A Little Greeting From the Great Beyond

Abraham Says Hi - inspiration from the universe

Abraham Says Hi - Thea's Things

Abraham Says Hi

It’s Easter Monday, lunch time, and Abraham says hi.

Though I have several other blogs in various stages of completion, I thought I’d write a quick one today about this,..the dream I had this morning. In my dream Abraham said “hi” to me.

Who the F**K Is Abraham?

Well Abraham could refer to someone in the Bible, but in this instance, I am referring to a set of beings that we may refer to as a collective unconscious or infinite intelligence – that are channeled through Esther Hicks.

Relax. I don’t really want to go too much into the spiritual woo-woo-ness of it all, my beliefs are my own, but rather am here to tell the story about my dream this morning…

Easter Sunday Sadness

Before I get to the dream, I need to back up and tell you about my head space yesterday. I’ll be honest, I had a bit of a low-ebb Easter Sunday.

If you (or I) look at it objectively, it was entirely GOOD…Nice breakfast, a walk to Aberdour’s Black Sands Beach, followed by a lovely tea and scone after. Then I helped my friend John design his first book for KDP using Canva. I left Aberdour and had a nice drive on part of the Fife’s Scenic Coastal Route.

See? All good…

But, I just wasn’t feeling all that good.

I was feeling heavy hearted to be more precise.

Perhaps sad thinking about my dad and how he always used to say “Happy Bunny Day”…This the first year he didn’t say it…(at least not with his voice but maybe what Ralph Says it came in a different way today).

It was just like a dull gray cloud was over me.

That’s rare. I am usually pretty upbeat and finding the good in joy in all but yesterday I was just off.

Went to bed around my usual midnight and woke up seven hours later.

My Dream of Abraham

So in my dream, I was walking into a subway station (looking rather like Buchanan Street Underground in Glasgow).

A man collapsed to the ground and was a bit of out it.

Another man said to me “can you sit with him?” (Both men were attractive, I vaguely remember thinking!)

The collapsed man said, “Do you know Abraham?” and I paused not knowing how to answer that, and if we were talking about the same Abraham…

“Abraham?” I queried.

“Esther Hicks’ Abraham”.

“Yes.” I replied.

“Abraham says ‘hi”. He stated, and as he said that, my whole body was tingling. Head to toe. (This happened recently when my father came to me in an intense dream…)

Then I said “Wait am I dreaming? Or am I awake? Is this real?” And I looked at him, and around, and I exclaimed, “Damn it I am dreaming.”

As if to say “no, this is not real, It’s just a dream”.

Is it?

I reckon that if Abraham is real that’s exactly how it would come to me in a dream state, as there is no resistance to such concepts.

Is Abraham real or not? Maybe aye, maybe naw…

All I know is that I enjoy listening to Esther and Abraham immensely, so even if it’s not real, who cares? It gives me pleasure and it resonates with me any way.

For other people it may be religion or the bible or something else. Whatever works for you is my motto.

I feel like now my father is i the mix with Abraham so it gives me comfort to think that Ralph Says Hi too.

Abraham Says Hi Sweatshirt

POD Inspiration Comes From Everywhere

So as I started to “come to” after my rather odd-but-cool-dream, I thought, “there’s a tshirt in that”. It felt like a sign.

Imagine wearing an “Abraham Says Hi” Tshirt or hoodie, and all the other Abraham Hicks fans smiling knowingly at each other as if it’s a “sigh”.

Naturally I made some designs as soon as I got up today. Perhaps I’ll even make a journal to accompany it. Notes from Abraham, and the great beyond. Ha!

In any case, I’m listening...to Abraham to my gut, the universe or anyone anywhere who’s giving me creative ideas like this. It’s fun!

Frankly I’d love to be able to do what Esther Hicks seemingly can, tapping into that infinite source of wisdom, sign me up!

In the meantime, if you’re looking for a sign, this is it, Abraham Says Hi.
