Real Fairies Update, August 2017

Hello, Everyone!

It’s time to update you on some of the things we are working on here at Real Fairies.

Our Book
Writing the book has continued steadily over the last months and, as you can see from the photo above, I was even able to enjoy some occasional sunshine while I worked.

Actually, writing is the easy part! Since this is our first book, I had no idea how much non-writing work was involved.  I am now much more familiar with the whole process which includes things like finding a good editor, learning to format a book, creating a book cover that is acceptable (still working on that) and marketing the book so people will look for it when it’s published.  There’s quite a bit more but hopefully, you get the idea.

We’ve already had to revise our publication date a few times (mostly due to Susan’s accident) but I think we are on target to be done in late 2017 or very early 2018.  I hope you can hang in there with us!

Our Podcast
Lately, our podcast has taken a bit of a back seat to our book so we’ve had to decide whether it was something we wanted to continue or not. We enjoy creating the podcasts but the number of listeners hasn’t exactly been through the roof.  We’ve gotten around 5,100 listens from our six completed episodes, which isn’t bad, so we’re just trying to figure out what our course of action should be. Maybe you could tell us what you think in the comment section below–that would be really awesome!

Blog Posts
This is an area we are planning to improve. It’s been difficult to add posts when most of the “MR E time” has been taken up by the book, but we are planning to add at least one post a week from now on.

Coming in 2018
One of the things we are excited about adding next year is video. We are planning to do a book trailer and possibly a short video on each of the beings that have been a part of the book. This sounds like a fun project so I’m looking forward to working on this.

How You Can Help
If you’d like, you can help us by letting us know what you’d like to see more of, on Real Fairies.  We really want this site to grow into something you will find helpful and interesting so any thoughts you have would be very appreciated.

Thanks for reading and thanks in advance for your comments.

See you next week!

    Will you be putting the book on Amazon? That’ll allow those not in USA to buy it online. I certainly look forward to the finished book, and very excited for blog posts once every week. I may be a fanatic because I check this website almost every day.

      Yes, the book will most definitely be on Amazon!

    I’m also looking forward to reading your book once it’s published!

      Thanks for the encouragement, Luna!

    First off wanted to let you know i’ve been following your blog for years and it has shaped my beliefs as a person. It really has opened my heart and mind to environmental sustainability and just kindness towards other beings in general. You have truly changed me for the better. I cannot begin to speak of all the amazing experiences i’ve had with the fair folk. There is always a place in my heart for them. I just wanted to thank both Natalie and Susan from the bottom of my heart for all your hard work and dedication (and anyone else that helps behind the scenes.. of course Mr. E.. etc) I will be forever grateful to all of you.

    Now as far as advice for future endeavours, I have a couple suggestions. You touched a bit on the video aspect.. have you ever thought of branching out to making youtube videos? This is just the opinion of someone of a younger generation but I truly believe if your goal is to reach a larger audience, youtube is an incredible platform for that. I would also advise perhaps also branching out into other forms of social media to spread the word. You will meet MANY skeptics on these platforms but there are also numerous believers and a whole loving community on youtube that will appreciate this content. I know it is a bit much taking into consideration your blog/podcast .. and book (which I am extremely excited about) but I just thought I would share a little insight. I rarely make comments on anything but I felt compelled to do so.

    I wish you all love and light and am looking forward to see you grow as a business and continue to enlighten others as you have with me!

      Hi Michelle! Susan and I were both very touched by what you wrote. It’s hard to put into words how we felt when we read it but I can say it was so gratifying to know we had some part in raising your awareness and belief in the fae. Thank you so much for sharing that with us!

      Your insight about branching out to YouTube is very valuable and we are listening to you and others saying similar things. We have decided to give YouTube a shot and see what happens. I also appreciate your warning about the “many skeptics” we will probably encounter. I guess that is the way of the online world these days so we will try to be prepared for whatever unpleasantness comes our way.

      Thanks again, you made our day!

    I agree with Michelle, you could link the podcasts on you tube, so people can come back to the site and learn about the book and blogs and all the other Fae stuff here, then when you start the video trailer, they can be uploaded straight onto your you tube channel. You have a great thing going, more people need to know about it.
    ~Blessings~

      Thanks, rush. It looks like we are going to have our own Youtube channel soon.

      Hi Dena! Thank you for your supportive and encouraging words, we appreciate it more than we can say! We have listened to everyone’s feedback (including yours), and have definitely decided to keep doing podcasts–we even plan to put them on our upcoming YouTube channel along with other videos as we go along. So thanks, your words have also had a positive impact!

    Hello, I was just wondering what happened to your online store. I’m using the Law of Attraction to attract my dream home and I would like to have faery flags on the walls, and when I went here to find the images for my vision board and the store is gone. Will you bring it back up?

    • Natalie Lynn September 15, 2017 at 1:32 pm - Reply

      Our store is temporarily closed until we find the time to expand and update it. It probably won’t be back until sometime in late 2018 because we are currently overwhelmed with projects/work and just can’t get to get to it any sooner.

      Thanks for asking, I hope you can hang in there until we get to it!

    Hello, me again 🙂 I was just wondering if you’ll be eco-conscious with your book? Seeing as our actions on our side of the veil affects the other side of the veil, I was wondering if your book will be printed on recycled paper with soy-based/water-based inks? I know Julia Butterfly Hill did that with her poetry collection “Becoming”, she used a company called Seeds Green Printing. Just an idea 🙂 I’m working on a novel and the dream is to get them to print it 🙂 or some other eco-conscious company.

      Hi Jacinta,
      Yes, we have looked into it and so far, we can’t really find an eco friendly small press or any press for that matter, that will enable us to sell directly through Amazon which is where a huge percentage of book buyers are. Let me know if you have any luck!

    Hi Natalie and Susan,

    I so much enjoyed reading this little update! I have been following your website for over 6 years. I’ve re-read all your blog posts, and I LOVE your podcasts so much, please, please continue doing them! Every time I see that a new podcast has been released, I get so excited and immediately listen to it, usually multiple times over. It’s my favourite part of Reaf Fairies and it brings me so much joy listening to the words of Mr E and other beings Susan trance channels.

    I also can’t wait for your book and will be purchasing a copy as soon as it’s available! 🙂

      Hi again Victoria! Thanks so much, it’s these kinds of comments that keep us going! It is very appreciated!

    I have been following your blog for years now and it has been a source of clarity among the questions I’ve had for things I could not explain. I really hope you continue your podcast, I always look forward to listening to it!

      Hi Noel,

      We are really glad that we could help clarify things for you, that is wonderful to hear.

    Hi Ms Natalie Lynn, this is Estella. I have been looking for the “Forum Site” all over Realfairies.net, but I could not find it.

    I could only see “Our Blog, Our Book and Our Podcast” on the Realfairies.net Homepage.

    Can you give me the “Link” to the “Forum Site” because I really need to post 2 Topics on it ?

    That’s because my 2 Topics are very long and personal and I do not want it to be seen on the Chatroom because everybody will see them.

    Pls kindly reply to me as soon as possible. Thank you.

      Hi Estella,
      I’m sorry, our forum is unavailable for now but you can leave your question here or email me privately at natalielynn@realfairies.net

    Excited about the book and hope you continue the podcast. We love Mr. E and miss hearing his wonderful stories. Please continue and your listeners will grow. It takes time but I can say that we have been checking every week for a new episode. There is nothing like it around.

    • Natalie Lynn September 29, 2017 at 8:39 pm - Reply

      Thank you for your comments, Mark! It’s very encouraging for me, Susan and Mr E to hear. This really helps us move forward in the right direction. 🙂

    I thank you for being dedicated to the nature spirits. I’m working on getting to know the Fairies better so your Fairy knowledge is coming in really handy!
