Where is your heart? Day 17


Carissa Hendrix as Lucy Darling


This morning clad in full wet gear on this morning's rainy walk, I got to thinking.

Last night, I watched another much admired female magician Carisa Hendrix talk about how she managed to make such creative progress with her three year old character Lucy Darling. You can marvel at her at www.thelucydarling.com .

As you'll know if you've read my story, I've had the dream of creating a world class magic act for three decades. It was so important to me that twenty years ago, I left my husband to go to Las Vegas. It was really important. And yes, we're still friends.

Last year at a big magic convention in Florida, I performed that act in front of 800 magicians including many of the top names in the business. It went well and I finally thought to myself, yup, that worked. Of course, as we say in the business, every show is only as good as the last. This is true. But still, that yearning I'd carried for so long was answered.

Carisa Hendrix said that she had achieved so much in a relatively short time because she only does what she wants to do. Since she wants to develop material for Lucy Darling she puts in 40+ hrs a week and gets things done.

This made me question what I want to get done. Like Carisa, I have no kids or other demands on my time. I can do whatever I want.

As I walked past the sheep on the windswept hills, I pictured an old fashioned pair of scales. If I put a new improved Romany magic show on one side and the vision of my book read throughout the world on the other, there is no contest. The idea of reaching out to a young woman who doesn't know how to break free from feeling desperately unhappy, has the whole weight of my heart behind it.

Or to be honest, let's say, 70% of my heart. I'm still in love with showbiz and spotlights. Plus, this is a new venture for me, I am stepping out of my comfort zone onto new paths.


But even so, it's good to be clear.

This Manifest a Million readers isn't about making money. I can spend money as well as anyone, but if someone came along and put the profit from a million books in my bank, I would put it straight back into finding more readers and getting the book translated into as many languages as possible.

It's the same with magic. Tax wise, magic for me has been an expensive hobby. I've always spent the profit on nicer costumes, artistic direction from the best creative minds in the business and on a few ridiculously expensive illusions. Like Carisa, this is what I love.


Listen up! I have good news!

This morning, I checked on Amazon UK. Spun Into Gold is ranked 18th on Amazon Bestsellers for Biographies of Travellers & Explorers for Young Adults! Quite how, I'm not sure because I haven't actually seen many book sales but it's still good news!


I'm so glad that it's reaching young adults. This is the book I wish I had found in a bookshop when I was searching for hope. The only book I could find about bulimia at the time when I was feeling totally desperate told me bluntly that I was at risk of killing myself. Oh great!

What it didn't tell me was what I needed to hear, which is that things can get better.

That's what I want to tell EVERYONE. In the balance, this is where my heart weighs.

Let's carry on then shall we? Still a way to go. But remember, FUN and EASY, FUN and EASY!

Love, love, love

Romany
