 "There is no reality.
There is only perception."



24 June 2016

Time to start a Tarot Book page on this webiste to record all the updates with creating this book. Latest news on the book, it is currently in the hands of the Editors being laid out with the correct fonts and all the pictures in place, etc. Then I will have many chances to look and comment on the layout before it goes to a full print.

I am also now working on the Book Launch. Where to have the event, people to invite and creating the invitations. OMG so many things to work out and prepare. I am amazed how I went from working on the book mode to Book Launch and time to celebrate it mode. 

I have been writing this book for many many years, I found it very therapeutic for me especially while my mother was going through her Dementia, being hospitalised, then in a nursing home and finally passing over. This book gave me solace.

All up it has taken 4 years of accumulation through to completion. From typing it up, reading and re-reading, going back and forth, 1 year was just in the editing of the book alone! Overall it has been a rewarding experience, a culmination of over 30 years of all my work, studies and experiences all coming together.

After many nights of writing and re-writing, from getting permission to use the Rider Waite pictures through to finding the right person to assist me in bringing this book into the physical reality, it has been a wonderful experience. I may only write one book ever, so I want to do it right.

Recently, I have added some pictures to share.

Pamela and ArthurI will be using the Rider Waite Tarot cards throughout my book. Channeled by Arthur Edward Waite and drawn by the creative Pamela Colman Smith.
Book Handover 2Meeting with my Publisher Pat, finally holding a copy of my Tarot Distinctions book in my hands.

I love Fractals, they remind me of our life's journey and our experiences coming around and around, within and also without.

I also like to use the colour gold because when you tap into your shadow side this is where you will find all your gold! 

This is another reason I like to use the gold keys, and I use heaps of gold keys throughout the book.

Once the book is published, you will be able to purchase the Book here through my Online Shop.

Ru Pat 2 bHeld many meetings with my publisher Pat. He was a wonderful supporter in bringing my idea into reality.
Key5There are many Gold Keys throughout the book, that give you a hidden clue about the cards.



27 December 2016

Met with my Publisher Pat again for a coffee and to discuss the progress of the book. All year the book has been going back and forth now to the lovely person who has being laying out the book and formatting the pages. It is really starting to become real.

We discussed the next phase which is the launch of the book. I have been scouting for venues and listing some fabulous ideas on how to make the evening a grand success. Looks like I am aiming for Late March or early April, before the end of daylight saving.


July 2017

My book is currently at the Printers...OMG...it is about to become a real artifact! My publisher has rushed it through so he take this sample with him to a huge Chinese Publishers Convention in China, from there he is taking it to Queensland and then Sydney for special events he is attending there, then it is off to South Africa for more publicity. He will post me back some pictures of my book doing its whirlwind trip around the world so I can share and blog them here.

Cannot wait to hold the book in my hands! In the meantime, he are some pictures of book travelling around the world.

March 2018 - Book Launch at the Moonee Ponds Bowling Club!

All the planning has finally come to this, the Book Launch! I can now call myself a published Author!

The book launch was planned for 8 March, which coincided with International Women's Day, a very auspicious day! The 8 March is also an 8+3=11 day a master number and 11 is also my birthdate. Another reason I wanted the book priced at $56, not only because there are 56 minor Arcana, but also 5+6=11.

For the evening, I created what I called a Tarot Potion No.11 drink. There were Tarot cards all over the walls of the venue, music, flashing pictures on the wall telling my Tarot story, plenty of friends and food abound! It was a memorable night celebrating my journey!

"Hey Ruanna, Just want to congratulate you for a wonderful night I had a great time. The book is fantastic well done! xxx Love Nia

"I love your book! I can't put it down but I need to as I am trying to do things and read at the same time, I don't want it to get dirty." Love Jennifer

"I absolutely love the book. I love how much information there is, the films to watch, books to read, quotes and how easy it is to read. Well done and congratulations again! Julie

"Hi Ruanna.  Thank you so much. I love your book and have had my head buried in it quite a lot since Thursday, it brings back so many beautiful memories of our classes.  I  thought the night was an absolute triumph for you, you have produced a wonderful body of work, had a fantastic turnout and great support from all of your tribe and I was so proud to be numbered amongst them. Well deserved congratulations." Love Geraldine xx

"When recommending any book on the spirit world to beginners it's always James Van Praagh's Talking to Heaven or Reaching to Heaven, because they're so easy to read in the most basic sense and really enjoyable to understand. This book, Tarot Distinctions is the same. Ruanna breaks down each aspect of the card so that anyone can not only understand Tarot but enjoy it. I have other Tarot books that have been very confusing and hard to understand and then I bought Tarot Distinctions. I finally have my "aha" moments when looking at the cards. This has made my Tarot journey a much brighter and knowledgeable one." Kelly

"Just wanted to let you know that I started your book last night. The details is amazing and the more I get through the more I am beginning to understand the scope of what you have accomplished! Tonight I will begin Chapter 3, Major Arcana. Can't wait. After one small night of reading, my thoughts have been swirling and I am looking forward to getting stuck into one more night! Warm regards, Johnny

"Thank you Ruanna, I have been reading your Tarot Distinction book since I got it a few weeks ago and wow you put so much work into it, your heart and soul. As I started learning tarot with you many years ago maybe 16 years ago and am so grateful to have your book as you have integrated so many layers of understanding while honored the sacred tarot journey of the human consciousness within your book. Congratulations Ruanna Divine book" - Kerrie
