A quick note to share some good news and an update on the next Jumpstart Your Book virtual retreat (May retreat postponed; see below for details).

First off, I’m incredibly excited to share the fabulous news that my book, The Secret Life of Grief, won a Nautilus Silver Book Award for memoir! Nautilus publicly announced the list of gold and silver winners earlier this week and I’m still dazed to have my book included amongst the ranks of Brene Brown, Tara Brach, Thich Nhat Hanh, J.D. Vance and many more.

Those of you who’ve been with me for a while know what a journey this book has been for me, both personally and professionally. Today, I’d like to take a moment to thank you all for supporting me in the journey and now the celebration as well — it’s been a big deal for me!

If you’re wondering what Nautilus is, it’s a major book award celebrating books that inspire and connect our lives as individuals, communities and global citizens–the award recognizes books that transcend barriers of culture, gender, race, and class, and promote conscious living & green values, spiritual growth, wellness & vitality, and positive social change and I’m blessed beyond belief to have joined their ranks! Woo-hoo!

Ok, now that I’ve gotten that out my system (!), let’s talk about the next Jumpstart Your Book retreat. Although I was planning on offering another JYB virtual retreat in May, I’ve had to postpone it, and I’m so sorry about that. I know that a few of you were hoping to get started on your book before the summer hit.

So here’s what I’d like to do: for those of you itching to get started, I’m offering a 1-hour, private “lightning round session” instead. One uber-focused private session can provide you with the clarity you need to get your book moving forward—and you can hold me to that!

If this calls to you, please reach out to me directly (email me at tanja [at] tanjapajevic [dot] com). I only have a handful of slots available in the next couple of months, so if you’d like one, please let me know.

And for those of you who’d prefer to wait, I’ll be offering another Jumpstart Your Book virtual retreat in the Fall of 2018. As always, please follow the path that’s right for you.

In the meantime, wishing you a fabulous day filled with lots of love and laughter!
