A modern take on this old saying would be something like:
· When any investment or business venture suddenly becomes hugely profitable.
· A sudden unexpected life changing event, like a huge lottery win.
· A long expected positive event or development finally happens and changes the recipient's life.I personally like the third point best. In the Tarot Cards, the three of wands portrays “when your ship comes in” beautifully. The card’s interpretation means a successful enterprise, as well as partnership and cooperation. The graphic is of a man who is looking out to the sea, watching the boats of his labors coming back to him, all full of new resources to fulfill his next goal.
On May 18th, 2012, my ship came in. I was finally a published author with my first book, The Last Timekeepers and the Arch of Atlantis securely under my belt. There was satisfaction for sure, but after the sweet feeling of success, I knew more had to be done on the promoting and marketing side, as well as writing the next book in the series. As I dipped my toe into the publishing waters, it rippled out to others whether they were readers or authors or reviewers or family to share my creative energy with them in a way I never had before. And as the first anniversary of my debut book release draws close, I can honestly say that if you want your own ship to come in one day, make sure you take the opportunity to cooperate with others if you wish to lay the groundwork for future success.In celebration of the upcoming 1st Anniversary of my book release, I’ve reserved the whole month of May on my blog to thank all my readers, followers, and fans by hosting a Rafflecopter giveaway which includes an awesome prize pack, link to a Goodreads giveaway, partake in the Children’s Book Week Blog Hop, and post a smattering of time travel tidbits for your reading pleasure. Anchors away, and hope to see you there my friends!
