Oscar Naval’s path of awakening to the full body orgasm of life began during his engineering consulting career. He successfully consulted with high-tech computer clients from Apple Computer to Xilinx. Although he had career and financial success, he was overweight, a workaholic and failed at a 10-year marriage. This was his wake-up call to discover what really is important in life.
He traveled the world from the land-lines in the British Isles to the Oracle at Delphi, from the red earth of Utah to the spiritual spots of Sedona, Arizona, and scuba diving the depths of oceans. He has worked remodeling vacation units, selling holiday activities, and as well as an Open Water PADI Scuba Diving Instructor in Hawaii. Over time and experiences, he grew to find more clarity, balance and spirit.
Before moving to Australia, Oscar lived on the island of Maui and on the Big Island of Hawaii where he discovered the depth and richness of native Hawaiian spirituality. On the Kona coast on the island of Hawaii, he studied to be a Hawaiian Lomilomi Massage therapist.
After arriving in Australia, he found his spiritual family, close friendships, and a loving relationship. Oscar married his lovely wife, Lisa, in 2003 and their son, Mikey, was born in February 2005.
Oscar Naval holds a Diploma of Body-Centred Psychotherapy from the Institute of Core Energetics, Australia. He is also a Hawaiian Lomi-lomi massage therapist. You can visit his website at www.FBO-Book.com.
Welcome to Beyond the Books, Oscar. Can you tell us whether you are published for the first time or multi-published? Can you give us the title(s) of your book(s)?
This is my first time publishing a book.
What was the name of your very first book regardless of whether it was published or not and, if not published, why?
The book, “Full Body Orgasm – Your Energy to Love, Health, Wealth, and Happiness” is the very first book I published.
For your first published book, how many rejections did you go through before you either found a mainstream publisher, self-published it, or paid a vanity press to publish it?
The book, “Full Body Orgasm – Your Energy to Love, Health, Wealth, and Happiness” was not rejected since it is essentially self-published with Morgan-James Publishing and LifeSuccess Publishing.
How did the rejections make you feel and what did you do to overcome the blows?
I had zero rejections so I just needed to overcome my own inertia.
When your first book was published, who published it and why did you choose them?
The book, “Full Body Orgasm – Your Energy to Love, Health, Wealth, and Happiness” is the very first book I published essentially self-published with Morgan-James Publishing and LifeSuccess Publishing.
How did it make you feel to become published for the first time and how did you celebrate?
I felt ecstatic becoming published for the first time. My wife Lisa, my 3 year old son, and I went out for a family dinner together to celebrate.
What was the first thing you did as for as promotion when you were published for the first time?
I worked with someone who knew about PR and Media Releases. From a Media Release I go onto a radio interviews. A few of the interviews can be heard on http://www.fbo-book.com book website.
If you had to do it over again, would you have chosen another route to be published?
I learned quite a bit from doing this book project and would probably go with a local printer and self-publisher that I could work with more closely.
Have you been published since then and how have you grown as an author?
The book, “Full Body Orgasm – Your Energy to Love, Health, Wealth, and Happiness” is the very first book. I have grown in my experience and understanding of the writing, publishing, printing, marketing and general business of authoring a book.
