Impact Others by Sharing Your Story and Achieve Author Success

Emma Lou Warner Thayne is no stranger to writing and publishing a book. Before publishing The Place of Knowing with iUniverse, she published 13 works, including poetry, essays and works of fiction. But for her 14th title, she was inspired to publish for a much different purpose: to share an eye-opening life experience.

This time, it’s about sharing her experience with others

Warner Thayne was inspired to write The Place of Knowing after she experienced a near-death experience as a result of a car accident. After the accident, she needed a way to process the experience and understand how it changed her. Warner Thayne came back with a promise to share her new understanding with others. Putting her experience into words, Warner Thayne discovered that she not only helped herself through the act of writing, but she now had a way to retell her story for years to come.

Turning her experience into a book

When Warner Thayne was ready to publish her book, she used iUniverse’s Select publishing package. In addition to this package, Warner Thayne used services such as Cover Copy Polish, Amazon "Look Inside" and Google Preview, Barnes & Noble "Read Instantly" Feature and Booksellers Return Program. The Place of Knowing was recognized by the Editor’s Choice and the Rising Star Recognition Program. With the help of iUniverse, Warner Thayne was able to turn her personal experience into something tangible that she could share with others.

In The Place of Knowing, Emma Lou Warner Thayne shares her near-death experience.

Terry Hawkins

"I never feel an experience – especially a really important experience – is complete until I pull it out and put it on a page." – Emma Lou Warner Thayne

Beyond sharing her experience

Warner Thayne currently resides in Salt Lake City where she has been a pioneer for women in business, education and the arts. One of her favorite things about sharing her story through her book is a special moment she had with her 22-year-old grandson when, after reading her book, he shared his spirituality with her. Because Warner Thayne took the time to put her experience into words and publish with iUniverse, she continues to help others better understand their own spirituality with her book.
