New Monthly Media Guide
the leaves are turning red and yellow, many things are happening
at Paraview. In addition to our current publishing-on-demand
activities, which are uniquely placed to publish books for niche
audiences, Paraview will add a new imprint, Paraview Pocket

larger audiences in the U.S. and abroad. Have a look at my

the interview, she explains how spreading information about
consciousness and spirituality has been her lifes mission
and how dreams have helped her along the way.

Judy Griffin, an aromatherapist of wide acclaim. Were also

Everything by our agency clients Tami Coyne and Karen
Weissman. Their focus in life is universal goodness and
authenticity, but with a hip, edgy perspective.
If after reading about all these books, authors, and publishing
activities, you get excited and want to start writing a book

published by Paraview. If you are an expert in your field,
have a manuscript or an out-of-print book, or know of any
interesting out-of-print books, please let us know and we will
see whether it is something we can publish.
