Two new books! And a new imprint!
I’m back. Really.
Moving forward, you’ll be hearing from me on a regular basis, with new images and new writing about art, healing, and transformation, as well as excerpts from books and announcements of publications and events.
After months of looking for a traditional publisher for my Kickstarted book of essays and Flower Mandalas, and after a mixed experience with a traditional publisher for an adult coloring book, I’ve decided to “go rogue” and create my own imprint, Transformations Press.
In the future, I hope to publish books by other authors, but I’m starting out with two of my own: a new version of the Flower Mandalas book, Paths to Wholeness: Fifty-Two Flower Mandalas, and a new coloring book for adults, 52 (more) Flower Mandalas: An Adult Coloring Book for Inspiration and Stress Relief, a collaboration with artist Mary O’Mally. I love the way both books turned out, and I hope my readers will, too.
Paths to Wholeness is available now from the printer (BookBaby) and is available for preorder from Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, and other retailers (ship date 12/16). 52 (more) Flower Mandalas is available now on Amazon and will be available at other retailers soon. An eBook version of Paths to Wholeness will be appearing at online retailers within the next few days.
Special offers for 2016:
- Between now and the end of this year, when you order Paths to Wholeness on Amazon, you can get the eBook version for $0.99 through Amazon’s Kindle Matchbook program (see link to Matchbook at the bottom of the Kindle edition).
- During the preorder period, which ends December 15th, Barnes & Noble is offering Paths to Wholeness at a deeply discounted rate.
- Between now and the end of this year, when you order 52 (more) Flower Mandalas on Amazon, you can get 52 (more) Flower Mandalas: Selections for free! This is a printable PDF of selections from the full book, matching several of Mary O’Malley’s exquisite illustations with the images that inspired them. To receive this free book, email a copy of your Amazon receipt to email@example.com
To paraphrase journalist Jimmy Breslin, if you don’t blow your own horn, nobody else will. These are beautiful books and terrific Christmas or Chanukah presents. Please let others in your circle know about them.
