Be An Angel Day, celebrated this Thursday, encourages us to perform random acts of kindness and become more in tune with our spiritual selves. To honor the holiday, we have compiled some Tarcher titles that will assist you on your journey to a more divine, angelic you.
Sophy Burnham’s A BOOK OF ANGELS is a beautiful book that not only tells the extraordinary true stories of present-day encounters with angels, but also traces the study of angels throughout history and in different cultures. Burnham writes about the powerful male angels, Buddhist bodhisattvas, Islamic angels, Hindu Apsaras, the mysterious angels of the Jewish Kabbalah, cherubim, seraphim, guardian angels, the angel of death, and others.
Ever wonder if that reoccurring dream meant something? Do you consistently see certain shapes in the clouds or on billboards? Have you experienced a serendipitous event and brushed it off as a coincidence? Chances are that your personal oracles, the “everyday miracles that often go unnoticed,” are trying to speak to you. In this book, Ann Bolinger-McQuade helps readers recognize and decipher their own personal signs. In EVERYDAY ORACLES, she teaches readers not only how to be open to receiving their personal oracles, but illuminates their intriguing history and science.
Paul Selig never set out to be a medium. But, one evening an awakening experience on a Manhattan rooftop left him with clairvoyant powers and the ability to channel guides from a higher level of consciousness. This text provides perhaps the most powerful and complete statement to emerge in the 21st century in channeled literature. Here is a powerful resource for anyone interested in achieving confidence, lasting happiness, inner understanding, and outer development through a more direct communication with the universe.
I AM THE WORD: A Guide to the Consciousness of Man’s Self in a Transitioning Time is a transcript of that wisdom. The book contains an enlightening program that will help readers get in touch with a higher frequency and celebrate the divine aspect in themselves. Readers will connect with the guides through the book, and start taking the steps that will change their lives. As the guides explain it:
THE BOOK OF KNOWING AND WORTH by Paul Selig
This upcoming title from Selig informs readers that “you decide what you are worth.” Selig’s spiritual guides take readers through a program to understand our own inherent worth, and beat the fears that drain our inborn spiritual knowing. The book reveals that true understanding of our life’s purpose can be found through “service”—the practice of the thing that you most love. Readers can discover their own form of service through this powerful mantra: “I know who I am, I know what I am, I know how I serve.”
Most widely known as an Australian TV and radio personality, Barry Eaton discovered that the universe had different plans for him. While studying astrology, Eaton was led to develop his psychic and clairvoyant skills. In his new book, AFTERLIFE: Uncovering the Secrets of Life After Death Eaton discusses his own contact with the spirit world, his many interviews with people who have had Near Death Experiences (NDEs) as well as what he has learned through his experience as a medium.

In this fascinating book, Burnham tells the stories of individuals who have “seen without seeing,” illustrating the wondrous workings of what she calls our “intuitive hearts.” Exploring a wide range of subjects-from loved ones’ abilities to communicate telepathically to the mystery of the artist’s inspired creativity; from animal communication to psychic powers; from scientifi c studies of premonition to the skeptics who deny the very existence of such phenomena-this is a stunning contribution from a leading spiritual thinker on a topic vital to us all.

“I finished the Sookie Stackhouse series! After several weeks, I read all thirteen novels in the series plus the short story collection – it was a fun, wild ride with Sookie, Eric, Bill, Sam, and all the “supes,” witches, vampires, not to mention a whole cast of great characters. What amazes me is how Charlaine Harris, the author, was able to keep up the quality throughout the series, and in fact I thought the series got better and better. There has been some internet grumbling about how the characters changed over the arc of the books, and also some upset over the man that Sookie ends up with. For me, having read the books back-to-back, the characters changed in a way that seemed normal and in-line with their personalities. Why would a reader not want the characters to develop with each book? As to the person Sookie ends up with (in Dead Ever After)… I thought Harris made the perfect choice. The ending of the last book was perfect. Brava, Charlaine!”
**Editor’s Note: Congrats – that’s amazingly fast reading! As for the grumbling, your co-worker Kevin was against all the complainers too.
Mitch Horowitz, Editor-in-Chief (@mitchhorowitz):
“Seedtime and Harvest by Neville Goddard, a brilliant short summary of Neville Goddard’s mind-power philsophy, originally published in 1956.”
Sara Carder, Executive Editor:
“For anyone who ever hesitates about doing something they really want to do– because they might mess up (me!), Fail Fast, Fail Often by Ryan Babineaux and John Krumbolz (in-stores December 26) is a powerful guide to breaking this cycle and finding greater happiness in life because of it.”
Brianna Yamashita, Director of Publicity & Marketing:
“I am currently looking over the information sheets on the books we will be publishing in Spring & Summer 2014.”
**Editor’s Note: For all of you who haven’t yet, be sure to check out what we have upcoming for the Winter months!
Kevin Howell, Marketing Manager:
“I was so happy when I realized that the release of Lisa Lutz’s The Last Word was scheduled mere days before the beginning of my week vacation (that starts today!). The Last Word is the sixth book in the hysterically funny comedic mystery series featuring a very dysfunctional family of private eyes. Gillian (Gone Girl) Flynn blurbed: “The Last Word is Raymond Chandler meets Arrested Development.” Edgar Award winner Megan Abbott said the book is “Like Raymond Chandler meets Salinger’s Glass family.” And People magazine calls the series, “The love child of Dirty Harry and Harriet the Spy.” Aren’t you itching to start with book one? (For your convenience, book one is The Spellman Files, followed by Curse of the Spellmans, Revenge of the Spellmans, The Spellmans Strike Again, and Trail of the Spellmans.). I couldn’t let it sit in my home for one day before I had to jump in and start it ahead of my vacation.”
**Editor’s Note: Sounds like the perfect vacation read – have fun!

Andrew Yackira, Assistant Editor (@acyackira):
“I’m reading the manuscript for Joseph Emet’s new book, Buddha’s Book of Stress Reduction, which will be out in winter of this year!”
Gabrielle Moss, Assistant Editor:
“I’m re-reading The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath – kickin’ it high school style!”
Joanna Ng, Editorial Assistant:
Jillian McElgunn, Publicity Assistant:
“I’m loving This is How You Lose Her by Junot Diaz. I just finished The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao and came back for more of Diaz’s conversational, brutally honest style. The book’s short chapters read like independent essays, making them perfect snippets for the subway!”
**Editors Note: Great choices! This is How You Lose Her will be out in paperback on September 3, so be sure to file that away for possible Christmas gifts!
Tess Thomas, Publicity Intern:
“I am currently rereading A Dance with Dragons: A Song of Ice and Fire: Book 5 of George R. R. Martin’s Game of Thrones (@GameofThrones). My best friend got annoyed at me the other day for constantly rereading books I’ve already read, but what can I say – I’m a creature of habit!”
**Editor’s Note: If you like it, you like it, but be sure to try and find new favorites (perhaps some your co-workers suggested above? J)!
Paul Selig never set out to be a medium. But, one evening an awakening experience on a Manhattan rooftop left him with clairvoyant powers and the ability to channel guides from a higher level of consciousness. Selig and his guides have written THE BOOK OF LOVE AND CREATION, an extraordinary new book of channeled teachings on subjects such as love, self-awareness, inner development, and the realization of desires. Through exercises, meditations and affirmations, readers are instructed on how to develop their own intuitive abilities in order to enhance both their inner and outer lives.
THE BOOK OF LOVE AND CREATION provides perhaps the most powerful and complete statement to emerge in the 21st century in channeled literature. Here is a powerful resource for anyone interested in achieving confidence, lasting happiness, inner understanding, and outer development through a more direct communication with the universe.
Selig, who is a Yale-educated dramatist, NYU faculty member and director of the MFA in Creative Writing Program at Goddard College, is also the author of the channeled text I AM THE WORD.

You’ve been guiding channeled energy groups for years. What happens in these groups?
Well, each group usually begins with a channeled lecture on a subject. My guides teach and facilitate the sessions. My job is to show up, keep the dog in my lap and remember to turn on the CD recorder. After the lecture they will either work on the individuals present, offering mini-readings and energy work to support their transformation, or work with the group to enable them to work directly with themselves or each other. My guides will attune people to the energy they call the Word and support them in working with it in ways that are readily apparent and physically tangible. The energy that comes through when I channel is often physically palpable, even to people that are brand new to energy work
What do you experience when you channel? How do you hear? How does it work?
When I first began to hear, I used to feel an energy at my forehead. It was almost as if someone was pressing their lips against me and impressing the words into me, which I would then form with my lips, whisper and repeat. It’s still pretty much the same, although in the early days, I only used to be able to channel when I was doing groups, and then was always terrified that I wouldn’t be able to hear. For the first several years, it was as if I was reaching “out” of myself to hear. Eventually, there was a kind of merging with the energy I tune-in to, and now it’s always pretty available to me.
How reliable are your guides? Are there days you cannot channel?
There are certainly days when I’m clearer than others. If I’ve got a lot going on or am fearful, I might not be as effective, but usually the information comes through clearly. I have a regular group that I’ve been channeling for and doing energy work with for many years, and I often begin a session saying “I’m not up for this tonight – not sure if I can hear” and they laugh, because the information always comes through just fine.
I work two ways as a clairaudient. As a channel, I hear directly and am working with my guides, a “collective energy” that describes themselves as teachers. There’s no real interpretation involved. I’m simply relaying the information that’s given to me. I consider this to be spiritual work, as opposed to psychic work. When I work psychically, I can often tune-in to and “hear” an aspect of your boss, or your friend, but its not the same experience as channeling. In most readings, I’ll go back and forth between the two skills. For example, I might tune-in to someone’s boss and get information on a problem at work through that exchange, but then get more (and higher) information from my guides, who may explain the dynamic that’s at play, or the pattern that might be creating the problems, or how best to solve them. I’m told I’m pretty accurate. There are people who have been coming to my group for many years and most of my clients return.
I Am the Word: A Guide to the Consciousness of Man’s Self in a Transitioning Time
By Paul Selig
The channeled Guides of I Am the Word provide a concise and immensely powerful program in self-awareness that can ease negative complexes and align one’s existence with its highest purpose. In a series of enticing, irresistibly practical dialogues, the Guides identify the emotional “boulders” that displace our authentic selves and consume our potential. The Guides provide to-the-point psychological and existential insights, along with self-developing exercises and affirmations, which begin to strip away residues of fear, self-doubt, and self-suffocating habits.
