The Social Media Press Release

We've finally found the time to look at writing Press Releases.  A little research reveals that the Press Release is not held in particularly high regard in the world of interconnected social media.

"It’s incredibly hard to get a social media community interested in a press release, and it’s not because they hate hearing about what your company is up to, it’s just that they hate the way you’re telling the story."  (

What we need, apparently, is a Social Media Press Release, which is more suited to to media such as Blogs, Facebook and Twitter.

As a step in this direction we've produced the first of several Press Releases via PressDoc a company based in Amsterdam in the Netherlands.

So here's our first foray into this field, if you are interested, please follow this link - - and if you feel so inclined, please share it with your social circle.

Do you have space on your fridge for a fridge magnet?

In a departure from books, posters and cards we are about to begin the production of fridge magnets of calligraphies and quotations.  Some people have already expressed enthusiasm about this possibility.

We would like to offer five fridge magnets as prizes.  If you would like to win one here are the rules.

(1) Find us on Facebook and become a fan.

(2) Take a photograph of the space on your fridge that you'd like to fill with one of our magnets.

(3) Upload your fridge photo to our Facebook wall.

That's it.

We'll hold the prize draw at the end of June and notify the winners then.  Photographs won't be judged on artistic merit - but feel free to be artistic if you wish!

This book is like a cool spiritual shower in one's heated existential quest." Rossinna Ippolito, InDocs InDexing Services,

Meditation is a life skill

"Meditation is a life skill [...] It is a skill that enables anyone and everyone to live their life more fully and more happily. If everyone meditated for a few minutes every day, the world would be a more peaceful and friendly place."
