You have heard the term "smoking gun" primarily in the movies before. A weapon that has recently been fired leaves a residue that attests to that. Other things happen without obvious reason, yet you wonder afterward what invisible hand pointed you in the right direction... to the course of action that worked to your benefit.
When you visited Fiverr.com in search of a graphic artist to make your new Kindle book cover, you saw a listing that looked perfect. This person offered everything you needed, yet every time you attempted to purchase from her - or even contact her to discuss your project - all paths were blocked. You merely kept returning to the login screen.
And so you continued searching until you found a listing that looked and felt pretty good. You sent a message and received a speedy reply. You paid your five dollars and had pleasant online conversations with an artist who completed your work the same afternoon. You now have a book cover you can be proud of.
In retrospect, you realized that you were being guided to the right person by the roadblocks that cut off access to all other possibilities. Does this methodology have the stamp of your Higher Self on it? Of course. The project you are now working on arose directly from these blogging sessions and you will have much unseen help in the publication of your new books.
Smoking gun? Not quite... but we did light a bigger fire under your forward progress. Now you have a cover but no book to put in it.
Time to get a move on.
