Free Book for You to Mystery Gift to Another!


Big love, people. BIG. GIANT. LOVE.

Here it is: I just came from my new church and I learned about the story of St. Nicholas. He was an expert at mystery gifts.

So here’s what I am doing: I am gifting my novel, The Amazing Adventures of Selma Calderón: A Globetrotting Magical Mystery of Courage, Food & Friendship to 8 people of your choosing. Free. I will send 7 within the U.S. and 1 internationally.

How does it work?

Send an email to with the name and address where you would like the book sent. Send it by Wednesday, December 6–St. Nick’s Day!

I will choose 7 of the emails at random for U.S. shipments and 1 from the group of international addresses, also at random.

I will notify you if your recipient is selected.  I will sign and dedicate each book and mail it.

Here’s the clincher: Let’s keep this a mystery and not tell the recipient that it was you!

I’m so excited about this that I’m bursting with joy!

I have more fun things I’ve created over recent weeks below. Read on if you want some more love.


  1. Readying Your Heart for Whatever Comes Your Way
    Early this morning, I was thinking about how my church will be going through a seismic retrofitting around Easter time. That means that the building will be  strengthened to be earthquake-ready.  For some time I’ve been thinking about how this is a metaphor for our hearts. Listen in here for 11:44:44 minutes and seconds on the topic. Also, some folks have asked me to start a podcast. I’m not there yet, but if you’d like some additional encouragement to keep going, I made a ten-minute Bright Light broadcast here.
  2. Mystic Athlete TV is here! I’m on a big transformative journey of heart, body, soul and mind. You can track my progress via 1 minute daily videos (and get inspired!) on YouTube by subscribing here and you can also join me on Instagram @beamysticathleteTV.
  3. Design a Life & Live It. I’m helping people transform their lives through strategic business planning combined with my own personal magic. In two 90-minute sessions we crystallize your vision and set up concrete incremental steps to design the life you want and live it. You can read more about it on my Work With Me page. This is a great gift to yourself or someone else for the holidays. I am also offering sessions to groups of friends of 4 or less who would like to create plans and support each other throughout the year.  My client roster is full for the rest of 2017 (and I’m finishing the sequel to my novel), but if you want to save a spot or spots for 2018, let me know by sending an email to
