Tears of Joy Book Launch (online event) - 27 November 2021

I had the pleasure of joining Andrew Jobling to launch his latest book, T.E.A.R.S. of Joy, in Australia and worldwide on 27 November and 8 December 2021. About the book: The shedding of tears after a significant achievement, a meaningful moment or purposeful pursuit is an indication of the powerful emotional joy we all strive for in our lives.  The fact is, everything we experience and all achievements in life start with a thought, belief, or perspective we choose to focus on. Therefore, we can all create the life we desire. What if there was a process for personal transformation that could lead to regular ‘tears of joy’ moments? In T.E.A.R.S. of Joy, Andrew Jobling provides the simple steps that will predictably lead to many meaningful moments of significance, achievement and well-being, empowering you to live a life of joyful longevity. This book offers a sure and certain pathway to transformation that lasts.

Cam is an Australian author and in less than twelve months has written three, yes three, thriller novels. Cam has a talent for telling a good conspiracy story. His first novel, Conspiracy, is available for free on Amazon.
