Interview with author Leah Guy:

The Fearless Path:
 A Radical Awakening to Emotional Healing and Inner Peace

1.      What really inspired you to write your book, to force you from taking an idea or experience and conveying it into a book? I have been working with clients for about 20 years. During that time I began to notice similar issues that were keeping people from true happiness and healing. Mainly, they were attempting to get rid of their pain by ignoring it, “letting go” or staying angry. After several years of research and seeing the positive effect that my method of healing was having on clients I decided it was time to reach a larger audience and try to help as many people as I could.

2.      What is it about and whom do you believe is your targeted reader? The Fearless Path is about having the courage to acknowledge and accept the ways in which we suffer and learn how to process our real feelings to find healing. The target audience is anyone who is emotionally mature enough to deal with their wellness or for those that have tried, but are still strangled by their suffering.

3.      What do you hope will be the everlasting thoughts for readers who finish your book? What should remain with them long after putting it down? My hope is that the reader not only becomes inspired and empowered to look at their life differently, but brave enough to share their authentic self and purpose with others. The more truthful and expressive we become, the more connection with have within our personal lives and with others in the world. Then we don’t feel separate or disconnected, and the anxiety and fear lessons.

4.      What advice or words of wisdom do you have for fellow writers? Just write. It sounds trite and corny, but you can always change words and structure and content (until it’s published that is!) but you need to get the energy moving and the words flowing onto the page in order to have anything to work with. I also gave myself a five minute prep time before sitting down to write to do a meditation or be in quiet and listen. It helps a lot.

5.      What trends in the book world do you see and where do you think the book publishing industry is heading? I have an inclination that the publishing world is going to continue to see a slight comeback, be it digital or hard copy. As a commuter around NYC, I am encouraged daily to see the vast amount of knowledge-hungry people with their heads in a reader or paper product. I don’t think there will ever be a time of saturation, although topic matter needs to continue to evolve and vary.

6.      What great challenges did you have in writing your book? Writing! I don’t feel like a natural writer. Storytelling and on-camera media I am comfortable with, but writing is a challenge. I’m glad I had the deadline from a publisher, otherwise I may not be writing these words right now!

7.      If people can only buy one book this month, why should it be yours? What an intense question! I believe the people that are meant to read my book will find it and will be compelled to purchase. There are not only stories in the book, but compelling information about our energy system and overall wellness that I think is necessary for anyone on the self-care journey to understand. It’s a practical book, easy to understand and useful no matter the pain or suffering one is enduring. Addiction, weight issues, heartache, anxiety, sexual assault or behavioral issues…the information is applicable and relatable.
