My first nonfiction book was Stirring the Waters: Writing to Find the Spirit which was nominated for the Nautilus Prize as one of the 5 best spiritual books of 2001. Tuttle was a great publisher but I neglected to ask my editor if she was planning to stay to shepherd the book through to completion and be its advocate. I was told Tuttle was using this book to widen their publishing scope to spiritual books in general rather than only Buddhist books. My book was the first and last of their attempt to do this. Once the editor who was to be in charge of the new direction resigned, their marketing plan changed, and although promotion was good enough, I can only it assume lessened. I did receive royalties for 9 years but it never reached a large audience. I've always liked the book and thought it "got caught" in personnel changes.
