Mercury Retrograde & MY BOOK!

Hibiscus Moon astronomy, book, Crystal Healing, Crystals 4 Comments

So it’s the retrograde again. This time I’m looking at it as a time to renew, revamp and redo! And I truly am doing all those things. I’m getting reviews for my book so I can print them inside, I’m revamping my website and business model and I NEED to re-do something with my emotions for the last few days. This is so unlike me but I feel very unsettled. I’m not sure why, but I feel a bit scared with all I have going on, a bit uncertain perhaps. Some say its shifting Source energies. I tend to think its that. Whatever it is, I need to give it the boot! *why doesn’t blogger have spell-checker?!*

Thank you so much for all your feedback on my last post. I really took it all into consideration and am adjusting it. OK, so here’s my About the Author blurb (different from Back Cover Blurb):

About the Author
Hibiscus Moon has learned to channel her inner-geek then merge it with her serious obsession with crystals and stones, bringing her unique perspective to the world of crystal healing. As a National Board Certified Professional Science teacher, Hibiscus Moon delivers the science behind the metaphysical aspects of working with crystals. As a Certified Crystal Master and Registered Metaphysician, Hibiscus Moon speaks, teaches and writes about crystals and is the founder and director of The Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy and has a YouTube channel dedicated to crystal healing. She resides in Florida with her husband and kitty, Topaz, aka “Topaz Meow Meow”.

And here’s the first cover draft. I wasn’t too keen on the color spectrum for this since it doesn’t really have anything to do with the subject matter of Crystal Grids:

Comments on any of this are welcome and appreciated. OK, my real name is coming off of there b/c of my job as a science teacher. 14-year-olds can be nosey and mean. I have a pretty big online footprint that I don’t need them following. Plus its a tongue-twisting mouthful & most peeps know me as “Hibiscus Moon” (so much prettier too!). So, my online & author name will always be Hibiscus Moon. I am thinking of starting to use an alias name for all of it though. Or should I just leave it as Hibiscus Moon? This indecisiveness is very strange and alien for me too. Busting out the crystals to help me along!

  1. Wow, Stephanie! I love the blurb about yourself. I think it's perfect. I like how you include Topaz kitty. Actually, I like the cover. Color catches people's eyes.

    Also, I like your alias "Hibiscus Moon." That's the name that people search your crystal classes by and your Etsy shop and your YouTube videos. When they search "Hibiscus Moon", you want your book to be attached to that name too. To me, I see Hibiscus Moon as a brand. Stick with that name. 🙂

    By the way, if you use Google Chrome as a browser, it automatically lets you know what words you spelled wrong by underlining them in red. Blogger also works better in Google Chrome.

    When I have a lot on my plate and mind, I notice I get brain fog and are indecisive too. Maybe you just have a lot going on. Hang it there!

    Hugs and Lammas blessings!

  2. Stephanie, I took the color to represent the energy from crystal grids… so it's cool with me.

    Hmmm, sounds like your vacation may have been a bit too short. How about a couple of long walks on the beach to try to get grounded a bit more.

    But I also think you must be experiencing excitement at seeing things come together 🙂 You've got a great business and you're very good at it.

  3. Finally sitting down to get caught up on your blog from the beginning. Definitely prefer the final book cover! And good choice on branding yourself “Hibiscus Moon”. I am contemplating coming up with an alias for myself as well.
