Bookcrossing - Relaxing into Meditation is a site devoted to connecting people through books.  You can give a book an identifying number, pass it on and then follow it round the world.

As an experiment, we thought we could release copies of our books from time to time just to see what happens.

We've started with Relaxing into Meditation by Ngakma Nor'dzin, released into the wild in as book 161-11952729 in Cardiff.  You can follow its travels via this link:

If you would like to release any of our books into the wild, by all means register them with BookCrossing and let us know the identifying number.  It will be interesting to see what happens.

“A book is not only a friend, it makes friends for you. When you have possessed a book with mind and spirit, you are enriched. But when you pass it on you are enriched threefold.”

The Legendary Rabbit of Death - Volume One

We are very happy to be able to announce the publication of our first book for children The Legendary Rabbit of Death - Volume One.

The Rabbit of Death lives in the ‘Cave of Everlasting Terror’. He rides out each day on his huge motorcycle to bring humorous chaos to the lives of rabbits in need of change. They greet him with trepidation, as he can be gruff and strange - but he is a kindly figure, even though he has a strange and startling way of helping. The rabbits he helps, join him in his mysterious world becoming the Rabbits of: Peace, Special Powers, Rainbows and Flyingness. But there are villains in the small Welsh rabbit town - the horrible chain-smoking rats Morgoth and Sowgoth Gizzardswill. The Rabbit of Death has to deal with them. These stories overflow with humour, word-play, and weird surprises. They carry a heart-warming message: everyone has skills and qualities that can be developed. Anyone can learn to become kind, creative, happy, and exciting.

Harry Potter meets Monty Python when nine-year-old Ræchel Togden’s dad agrees to be her typist and Photoshop facilitator. Ræchel Togden’s imagination runs wild when her dad—being an author and artist—enables her to develop stories and illustrations beyond the limits of her age – yet her creations remain entirely hers.

Catching up ...

We've been busy with all manner of things since Christmas.  There's been a lot of administrative work to do as well as proofreading some new books which will be published this year. This has meant that the blog has languished untouched for a while and there's some work to be done to bring it up to date.

Expect some highlights from last year and news of things to come!
