Conscious Planet: Our Monthly Media Guide
Welcome back! What a year it?s been, and it?s not
over yet: from Iraq to D.C. snipers, from stock market recovery to ongoing
uncertainty about employment, from new Democratic presidential hopefuls to Bush,
who delivered strong PR moves and turkey to US troops in Iraq, from Harry
Potter?s latest amazing success to Hillary Clinton?s own bestseller. This list
continues with many other major developments not always visible to the media --
in people?s personal lives, in local communities around the world, and in small
For us at Paraview this has been quite a year as well. We launched our
partnership with Simon &
Schuster by publishing intriguing and diverse titles such as
Sense, by renowned remote viewing expert Lyn Buchanan;
by the world?s leading cryptozoologist, Loren Coleman; and, more recently,
Men in Black
Dresses, by Middle East historian Yvonne Seng. All of these books
have succeeded in drawing attention, adding to debate, and reaching wider and
Paraview also began re-releasing out-of-print books dealing with important
topics such as self-improvement (Life Changes),
spirituality (Native Heart) and
socially responsible business (Corporate Renaissance).
More and more authors are approaching us with requests to get their books
republished, leading us to expand our efforts in this field in the coming year.
I?d like to mention a few other highlights from this year. We began working with
the leading publicist Livingston Communications,
which has added to the popularity of Paraview books. I also want to mention the
growing interest of you, our subscribers and readers: we received questions,
suggestions, and, yes, also some criticism from you. All are welcome. The more
we hear from you, the better we can do our work. Keep sending us your comments.
This month, we?re presenting more interesting conscious media selections. We are
also releasing the classic book The Great New England Sea
Serpent by J.P. O?Neill, which is about a strange creature that?s
been sighted off the coast of New England. This book, just like our other books,
is a great gift for those who want to be enlightened and entertained during the
dark days of December.
I wish you all a warm and pleasant holiday season, and I look forward seeing you
again in the New Year.
Until next month --
