Hi world! My name is Carla Baines-Gosslar, and this is a quick post to let you know that I’m working hard on my first book, “In Spirit: A Spiritual Guide for Everyday People”. I work on it as much as I can, which is easier these days, ever since I parted ways with my pharmacy job at Rite Aid. No hard feelings, guys! Buy my book when it comes out!
I plan to use this website (my first website, by the way) to publish excerpts from the book and updates about its progress. And if any of you know any agents or publishers who specializes in self-help, spirituality, and/or general non-fiction, please give me their contact information. I promise to be professional.
So what is the book about? Well, like the subtitle says, “In Spirit” is a spiritual guide for everyday people. When most people hear the words “spirituality” or “holistic medicine” or “incense” or “acupuncture,” they think that stuff’s just for hippies. But they couldn’t be farther from the truth! Everybody needs a little spiritual guidance and meaning in their lives. Even normal everyday people. That’s where I come in. I’m not a religious person. I’m not a super liberal person. I don’t even have a degree in any of this stuff (my degree is in pharmaceutical medicine). But I have a special ability to look deep inside myself and see the meaningful things that connect everybody together. And that’s what this book is going to be about. Everyday spirituality! More details to follow…
So to end my first post, I’d just like to say that my name is Carla Baines-Gosslar, I’m 42 years old, I’ve got a great family (hey Todd and Doug and Glovebox), and I can’t wait to share my spiritual wisdom with the world!
