Writing and Life Update (What happened in 2019)

This is an update about my writing, new projects, books and life as an author. I also want to explain what happened in 2019. In response to your questions, I am covering books, online courses and the oracle card deck…
Many of you have been asking if I will be writing another book and encouraging me to keep writing. I know there has been a bit of a gap so I wanted to explain why I stopped writing here.

I Moved House

For this to make sense I need to go back to 2018, which was a good year for me. Towards the end of that year and not long after I published my 3rd book Psychic Protection Crystals, I moved house. Like these things usually are, it took me a while to settle into the new place. It took a lot longer than I expected, maybe because I moved out of the city I lived in.

This book is a complete guide to psychic protection and protective crystals

The Box Set

I then released a Kindle Box Set of my three books. A few of you have asked about a paperback box set. I’m afraid that there is no way to do this as a self-published author using print-on-demand publishing. Even major publishers rarely do this unless you are a household name as it costs so much to produce, pack and distribute at discounted prices.
With ebooks, it is easy as these manufacturing and transport costs do not apply.

Online Courses

At the beginning of 2019, I decided to research about online courses. This is something that I wanted to do before starting another book. I took several courses on creating video courses. What I learned was so much more goes into online courses than what most people think. Everything from camera equipment, lighting to sound.
I planned out an entire course but the whole video thing was like me learning to write again. I didn’t want to rush something out that I am not completely happy with. The entire time I felt like I was doing something because I thought I ‘should‘ do it, rather than because I wanted to do it. It was a lesson learned.
I decided that this is just not the right time for this project. To be completely honest I feel like I lost a lot of time on this and rather than spend any more time on it I decided in Summer that I needed to get back to writing. I may revisit this after the next book is out.

The End of a Nine Year Cycle

2019 felt a bit like I was swimming against a current. In numerology, we all have a personal year number that starts on our birthday and ends on our next birthday. I learned that in most of 2019 I was in a 9 energy personal year. This is all about completing things already started, reviewing the last 10 years and letting go of what is not working.
I had lots of plans for 2019 but I now realise that it just wasn’t a good year for launching something completely new. I did not realise this until recently as I moved into a 1 personal year number (yay!). Now it should be a lot easier to get new projects off the ground as one energy is all about new beginnings and action.
If you want to find out more about your numerology chart and see what your personal year number is I highly recommend this book. Please note that as an Amazon Associate I earn from any qualifying purchases.

Foreign Language Translations

Crystal Grids Power was picked up by a French publisher and published in French as Les mandalas de cristaux. I also signed contacts for the French translations of my other two books. The next book to be published is looking like Psychic Protection Crystals, not my chakras book.
Recently I signed a contract with a Polish publisher who will be translating and publishing a Polish version of Crystal Grids Power. Many of you have asked for Spanish translations, hopefully, a publisher will pick them up.
Spanish speakers, if you know any good Spanish publishers of spiritual books please let them know you would be interested in a Spanish translation. They need to hear it from readers.

Designing a Crystal Oracle Card Deck?

I’ve been using oracle cards as part of my daily spiritual practice for over 10 years now. I love working with them for guidance and inspiration. It’s been a dream of mine for a long time to create my own oracle deck. I see a lot of crystal decks but few that I resonate with or that I feel really capture the magic of crystals.
This year I spent time figuring out what I would want in a crystal oracle card deck and planning the structure of it. I’ve made a mock deck to test it out which I am now using. I have not shared this as I’m not an illustrator and I am still developing the deck. What I can tell you is that it has 50 cards in so far and I’m thinking it needs a few more.
I’m not planning to self-publish this as so much work is involved. It could become a full-time job shipping orders. Self-published decks are usually very expensive. I would have to approach a card deck publisher. I have not yet found the right illustrator/artist that I would like to suggest to bring my vision to life. So, there are no concrete plans as yet, I am just enjoying the creative process.

The Next Book Is Underway

I began work on my next book, which is a follow up to Crystal Grids Power. It has been several years since I wrote that book and I hear from readers who love it almost every day. I have learned so much more since publishing it and made many more crystal grids.
Many of you have asked me for more crystal grids for specific needs. Plus readers wanted more info about other sacred geometry shapes and symbols and how they can be used.

What You Can Expect From Crystal Grids Power 2

Crystal Grids Power 2 will have all of this new information plus more. I went down the rabbit hole of research on sacred geometry and have 30 new shapes and symbols decoded. I’ve used almost three times the number of books referenced in book 1 to research these. I will expand the uses and meanings of the shapes found in the first book here too.

Very rough notes and planning in my crystal grids journal

So far I have over 30 crystal shapes and forms that I want to cover. I’m also planning on making this book easier to reference and use as a sourcebook for gridding. Crystal Grids will be categorised by purpose like money, relationships, astrology, spirituality etc. I’ll also be sharing more tips for manifesting and boosting the power of your grids.
I’m currently deep into formulating and creating the new crystal grids. I have 26 crystal grids so far and many more I still want to include. I want the book to contain more crystal grids than the first book.

    Thank you fir your 2019 update. I look forward to purchasing your new book when it is released. I purchased your other books and your knowledge through these books have helped me tremendously.

  2. Camilla

    My crystal friend who used to live in London recommended you, so I followed on social median and I like what I’m reading. So to my Q – amazon/kindle is not supported in my country and there for not sold to my IP address. Do you plan on supporting other digital platforms such as smashwords or iTunes (Europe) or are you an Amazon exclusive? I can get printed copy’s but the shipping is a fortune so I would like to start with a digital first.

    Hi Ethan, I felt similar in 2019, like an anchor was tied to my foot. There I was struggling to get to the surface, only focused on one direction, up. After the continuous guilt I laid on myself I finally relinquished my desire, my “Want” to swim up and decided to relax, look around and down under myself. I believe if I accept the space I’m in I will eventually find the direction I need to go. Is this a waste of time? I don’t think so… sometimes we just need time, a place to float in order to refuel so we can begin the next journey. Teedonna

    Hello, I really like reading The Crystal Grid book I hope part 2 will address authenticity of crystals.I have been in the “slump” that some that I own are not real,no vibration no attraction even after all I’ve done according to your book. I was disappointed that my Crystal pendulum I’ve used for years to determine what stones are real can easily be manipulated by my subconscious,any advice,Thank You.

      I am not an expert in idenifying crystals or fake stones. Minerologists and gemologists are the best source. Please also be aware there is a lot of fear mongering about this subject. Use pictorial books on minerals and gemstones to help with authenticity. Crystal grids are tools for manifesting, make sure your mind and actions are aligned with your goals.

    Hi, Ethan.
    First of all, thank you for such an empathic post. Not that anyone needs to demand an answer out of you on why the next book is not out, but your post explains a lot for many readers, I guess. Good luck in a new place, hope you like it there!
    I am anxiously awaiting your next book on grids, as I used the first one quite a bit. The new patterns for the grids are exciting!
    Just a thought (which you probably are aware of at this point, but you didn’t specify in your post): if you ever want to start a video class, you may want to try Udemy as your platform. I have taken classes there before, and I am currently working on putting my own class together (it has been conceived but is stuck in its 6-week embryo mode because I had little time to breathe, let alone pile one more task onto myself). my 2019 is a number 8 in my life, so I did a lot of unexpected stuff, and the next one is a 9, and I will likely finish some things, and maybe this class will be one of them.
    After reading your blog post on self-publishing, I ended up publishing the book that I wrote as a school assignment, so I can’t really thank you enough for giving me that much-needed nudge! Just know that your posts are not being read in vain.
    Oh, and yes, please, work on that oracle deck! I pretty much collect the decks with crystals, so I will gladly add yours to my collection.
    Whatever 2020 brings for you, I wish you all the best.

    I can’t wait for your next grid book! Do you sell or will you sell the grids too? Making my own doesn’t look as good as yours! I am hoping to include crystals in my Reiki therapy sessions, with the intention to help them further. Love crystals and find your help valuable to my development. Thank you

    1. Ethan Lazzerini Post author

      Glad to hear. No, plans to sell crystals or grids as it is another business in itself. Don’t worry to too much about how your grids look, and you can alwats upgrade your crystal or bases over time anyway.

  7. Lisa

    Thank you for your update Ethan. I feel for your situation I totally get what it is like to have definite plans and things happen to interfere. I am looking forward to your new book!! I have learned so much from reading them and being able to refer to them. My thoughts and prayers are always with you.

  8. Dee

    What an awesome update! I love how you explain what’s happening in detail. It’s like I was sitting across from you and we were just chatting! LOVE IT!!! SO look forward to more info on Sacred Geometry which is one of my favorite topics! Love the visuals as well!

  9. ROBIN

    Thank you for your update. I do love your books & information you share. I look forward to your new book. Thank you for all your work & sharing. Much love & gratitude,
