02 FebPam Grout releases E-Cubed extract
Pam Grout, whose book E-Squared resided on the New York Times bestseller list for months in 2013, has tantalised her fans by releasing a sample of the book’s sequel E-Cubed.
Writing on her website, Pam said: “I’ve been busy polishing up E-Cubed, the follow-up book to E-Squared, and decided that since I haven’t been here on the blog for awhile, I’d post a brief excerpt from the new book.
“It’s from an experiment about how our words have power and how they prophesy the future.
“In a nutshell, it’s an experiment to prove that you can’t talk lack and poverty and expect an abundant life. You can’t continue to harp about how bad everything is and expect it to get better.”
Pam will be exploring these ideas as part of her talk at Ignite on Sunday 9 March, which you can learn more about here.
But in the meantime, here’s a sample of the E-Cubed extract. Enjoy!

Having supported a friend who is older than me through menopause, I knew good and well what was coming. My skin was going to wrinkle and shrivel up, my ovaries would do a disappearing act and my emotions were about to compete with the Coney Island Cyclone for number of ups and downs.
I was like Paul Revere, riding my “woe is me” horse through the night, “Menopause is coming. Menopause is coming.”
One day, while rigorously going through yet another book on how to cope with this horrible affliction, I finally got it. I am prophesying the future with my words and expectations…
