May of 2012 saw the launch of a new publishing print associated with The New Era Times called the New Era Times Press, which will publish what we lovingly call “woo woo” topics that are needed in these times of fear and change.
The first two books that NETpress will publish are Pyramids Around the World, and Ancient History from Beyond the Veil—both of which will be available on Amazon.com May 1, 2012.
As most of you know, my passion is books. I have seen some amazing manuscripts and topics in the 20+ years I have been in book publishing that no one wanted to publish. So, this new publishing imprint will hopefully rectify that problem to some extent.
The New Era Times and The Book Connection are the sponsors of this exciting “no fee” essay competition with the winners being published in an anthology that will be available in October 2012. Proceeds from the sale of the competition anthologies will go to charity to help fund some very worthwhile causes that focus on education and spirituality.
The first recipient of the funding will be Edgar Cayce’s ARE Center in Houston, Texas which has been my inspiration on many projects including this competition. For those who aren’t familiar with Edgar Cayce, he was the renowned seer known as the sleeping prophet. Among his thousands of readings he not only gave people personal information and health direction, but also talked about the dawning of the Age of Aquarius as well as the dreaded Mayan Calendar date of December 21, 2012. Much of what Cayce predicted has come to pass with more predictions looming on the horizon.
So, if you have a hankering to share your knowledge and insight as it pertains to the following questions we are seeking answers to for the competition, we would love to hear from you.
Let's have some fun with this competition and also help people as well.
