MUSIC TO GET YOUR HEART PUMPING!

To Be Released in July 2005
Here’s a rousing song from one of Linda Purl’s stunning live performances. What’s it about? The heart, of course! In fact, it’s a conversation between a woman and her heart. “Be wise, be smart, behave my heart” she admonishes...though we all know the heart tends to listen to its own rhythm!

“Too Close for Comfort”
from Linda Purl’s CD
OUT OF THIS WORLD
Recorded Live at the Desi Arnaz, Jr. Theatre
in Boulder, Nevada

A SOULFUL ESSAY
as TEXT and as an AUDIO READ BY THE AUTHOR

To Be Published in October 2005
During a deeply reflective and healing time, Katherine realized something very important about “the checklist of the heart.” How well do we listen to the heart? This wonderful essay helps us tune in.

“The Checklist”
from Katherine Shirek Doughtie’s
APHRODITE IN JEANS:
Essays on Men, Motherhood and Midlife.
Visit the website for more info about this book

Katherine’s remarkable book hasn’t even appeared yet, and already it’s causing a buzz. (Join the conversation via her blog at www.aphroditeinjeans.com.) Short versions of her essays are available now in her PREVIEW BOOK, but this is the FIRST time the FULL TEXT of one of her essays is available. Not only that – we’re offering not just the text, but an AUDIO FILE of Katherine reading her own essay.


HEART-NURTURING GIFTS FROM EXPERTS

A THOUGHT-CHANGING BOOK

Though Linda Seger is world-renowned for her books and consulting on screen writing, in this book she tackles nothing less than a new view of the very foundation of our thinking. When we judge others as competitors, we risk missing key opportunities to connect synergistically. Instead we can create remarkable opportunities that help support and nurture each other's work. In this book, Linda Seger moves us from a competitive to a more collaborative, cooperative thinking model which she calls Web-Thinking. Are we brave enough to take Linda’s advice and think synergistically, not competitively?

MUSIC from an INDEPENDENT RECORDING STAR

A SONG TO OPEN YOUR HEART

Had I searched the world for a song to underscore the story of my lead character “Miranda Jones” in Milford-Haven, I could not have found any more perfect message than the one contained in this all-time favorite of mine. Truly it’s a song to encourage, uplift and help you receive.

POSTCARDS of ORIGINAL ART

A WILDLIFE IMAGE TO HELP YOU SOAR

The multiple-award-winning artist Mary Helsaple is best known for her captivating nature images, each of which has accuracy, wit, whimsy, and of course – heart. Fortunately for me (and for my readers) Mary is my consultant when I research the details of “Miranda’s” own wildlife painting career. We chose this image of the California Condor because it states two important themes in my book: The sanctity of wildlife in California, the home of my series; and the vital need of the spirit to soar.

“California Condor”

To find out more about Mary Helsaple’s remarkable career visit www.helsaple.com. There you will discover her many awards, the major collections in which her works are featured, which include the US Fish & Wildlife, the Department of the Interior, the El Pomar Foundation Collection of Colorado Artists and Forbes Magazine Corporate Collection. You’ll also ready about the Emmy award she and her partner received for their documentary “Manu: Peru’s Hidden Rainforest.” Best of all, you’ll be able to peruse many of Mary’s fantastic painting and photographs!

ORIGINAL IMAGES
FROM THE HEART OF MILFORD-HAVEN

When I first created my fictitious town of MilfordHaven, it immediately became my spiritual home. The first thing I needed was a visual image that would capture the heart of my little town. The late Warren Talcott was famous throughout California’s Central Coast for his pen-and-ink drawings. When he first created the drawing for my radio drama, the poster we put up would disappear by the end of the day! Thus this image has been a collector’s item from day one. So we offer the original black-and-white image as originally created. For the new edition of “What the Heart Knows” we also have a stunning new full-color version of the art by graphic artist Kelly Havsjold. One more special thing about this particular postcard is that it actually exists in the novel. To find out what I mean, you’ll have to read the book!

POST CARD directions:
After downloading the postcards you choose, you may purchase Avery 5389 Postcards (works for both inkjet and laser pritners). Print the document exactly as it is on side one. Reinsert the page upside-down and backwards, and print side two. You will have two perfectly printed postcards that easily separate at the pre-perforated lines.
