Conscious Planet: Our Monthly Media Guide
Welcome back! Because of all the good news we are offering
this month, I?ll keep it short and sweet.
Paraview is releasing some exciting new books this month. First and foremost is
by Middle Eastern historian
Yvonne Seng. The timing of this book could hardly be better. While the Middle
East is in its deepest crisis of modern times, one of the most important issues
facing American society is how people of all faiths can engage with one another
to shape a positive future -- how people of different religious and cultural
beliefs can live harmoniously, and even more importantly, work together to
respond to the big questions facing all of us on this planet, from the
environment and technology to issues of war and peace. This book has already
received high praise from biologist and social activist
Jane Goodall, who said that she could not put down this ?extraordinary book.?
On November 22, we will be remembering JFK?s assassination with a unique book,
, a biography of the 1960s
counterculture figure Kerry Thornley, who knew many interesting figures,
including Lee Harvey Oswald, with whom he served in the Marines.
Wilson writes in his foreword to this book that despite the
craziness of Thornley, ?He understood the government of this country better than
99 percent of its citizens.? Prankster is a compelling read for those who want
to understand the 60s counterculture and to read a different take on the JFK
conspiracy. (And for more information about JFK?s assassination, don?t forget to
check out our classic
We also present a fascinating book for the fans of the world?s remaining
, by renowned
British cryptoozologist Karl Shuker. Decide for yourself whether these creatures
are fact or fiction!
Whether you are a Paraview author or an aspiring Paraview author, I am sure you
are interested to hear about our exciting cooperation with publicity firm
Livingston Communications. They have a
holistic approach in dealing with writers and will be offering customized
publicity campaigns to Paraview authors. With Livingston?s help we look forward
to seeing and hearing more about our authors in the media.
As usual we have some very interesting and enlightening conscious media
offerings: websites, radio, and TV programs. Speaking of radio programs, some
amazing news has reached me and those of us who listen to National Public Radio:
Joan Kroc, the late widow of the founder of McDonald?s, has bequeathed ?the
largest monetary gift ever received by an American cultural institution? to NPR:
$200 million! An impressive example of individual support for public media.
Last but not least, if you represent or know of likeminded websites that you
would like to link to Paraview?s website, please use our special
Submit Your Link form. We look forward to
hearing from you.
