Just wanted to give a bit of an update on how the printed books are going. The other week, Dara and I did prints of the covers for Belsebuub's books The Path of the Spiritual Sun and Gazing into the Eternal, to get a sense of how they would look in print. They're looking good! We also did a test print of The Path of the Spiritual Sun inside pages to see how the layout was looking in print and how the images were printing, and overall we were quite happy with the result. Last week Jon and I worked solid on finishing up the book, using the test print to adjust images and layout issues, and pulled together the final components of the book. We sent The Path of the Spiritual Sun to the printers on Friday, and a proof is on the way! We have a planned release date of Friday the 26th of August. It could be a bit sooner if all goes well with the proofing process, or a bit later if we need to do some adjustments. It will be available by the end of August, and we’ll keep everyone updated on its release and [...]
We wanted to give everyone an update on our plan for releasing books over the next few months. Like I mentioned in our last blog, we’ve been very busy the past few months working on various projects including getting The Path of the Spiritual Sun by Belsebuub prepared for print. That book has been unique for us preparing for print as it has many different pictures from various sources, as well as excerpts of sacred texts and from researchers in the field of sacred sites and alternative ancient history/archaeology, as well as from other researchers. We’ve needed to do a lot of background work, and have been working away on formatting the book for print. We’re getting close to having everything together for the book to finish it off. In the meantime, we are working to get other books out as well. Here is our tentative plan for releasing books over the next few months: Late July / Early August – Gazing into the Eternal by Belsebuub - Paperback August – The Path of the Spiritual Sun by Belsebuub with Lara Atwood - Paperback September – Self-Knowledge for Spiritual Awakening by Belsebuub - paperback & Return to Source by Belsebuub [...]
Solstice Greetings! I know we’ve been a bit quiet on the blog lately, we have a tendency for that when we’re really busy :) We’ve been working away on projects including The Path of the Spiritual Sun print release. We were hoping to have it released before the solstice. Releasing the book in print, with the new updated content is quite an undertaking as the book is full of images and quotes from sacred texts, which bringing all the content together in nicely formatted print book takes time. We are expecting to release it in the next month or two - in time for people to get it before the equinox. Besides this little update on the book, we wanted to wish everyone a very spiritually uplifting and inspiring solstice time, where ever you are in the world. We also wanted to give a sincere thanks to everyone that has supported us these past months to keep us going. Your support makes it possible for us to do what we do. It is amazing and so very much appreciated. Thank you!
Whether the light is growing in your part of the world, or you are entering the darker part of the year, we wish everyone a very spiritual and insightful equinox. We're looking forward to the release of the paperback version of The Path of the Spiritual Sun, which as Lara had mentioned in her blog update, has new content, and new and updated ceremonies! We're aiming to have it released at the end of April. http://www.belsebuub.com/articles/the-spiritual-meaning-of-the-autumn-equinox http://belsebuub.com/articles/the-spiritual-meaning-of-the-spring-equinox http://belsebuub.com/spiritual-ceremonies-and-times-of-year
Finally, the day has arrived - The Astral Codex by Belsebuub is available in paperback! It's been a small journey to get this book to print :) and we thank everyone who along the way has been part of it. You can get it from: Amazon.com for $8 USD Amazon.co.uk for £6.00 or from your favorite book seller. We try to set the price of the books as low as possible so it's accessible to as many people as possible. We set the price to cover the costs and taxes associated with printing the books and a small amount that will go towards upcoming publishing and printing costs for future titles. Like with all of our printed books, Belsebuub himself does not receive any payments or royalties from the sale of his printed books. Belsebuub has always provided his work freely, which you can learn more about HERE. The Amazon systems make take a few days to fully update, for example, it is saying on the Amazon.co.uk site that it will be dispatched within 4-6 weeks :-? It may still need to update in the system that the book is available. Thanks to everyone for their support along the way! [...]
My update on the Belsebuub's printed books comes a few days later than I thought :) However, Lara on the Belsebuub.com site did an update blog on the books they have been working on and where things are at, so she spilled the beans before I got the chance to! So if you haven't read her blog, they finished revising The Path of the Spiritual Sun, and it's going through the proofing stage. We're hoping to start formatting the book later this week, and plan to have it out in late April. With The Astral Codex by Belsebuub in paperback - it should be available sometime late this week! We'll let everyone know when it's available. We've updated our books page, which has a list of all of the titles we publish, their availability, and expected release dates. All of Belsebuub's current books are available from Amazon, however you may find you are able to get the book with reduced shipping costs closer to home from one of the other retailers on our worldwide retailers list. We'll that's it for now. Thanks for everyone's support and excitement for the upcoming books and for the release of the upgraded site!
So we finally updated the MLP site! It was slotted for upgrading about 9 months ago, but it kept getting pushed back due to other projects taking priority. While we were starting to get ready for the release of the paperback version of The Astral Codex (which I'll give an update on tomorrow), I was looking at what updates we needed to make to the site to get ready for the launch. There's been a lot of changes with the books the past few months with the eBooks being unavailable, and a lot on the site needed to get updated. With all the changes to the books, plus the outdated look of the old site, plus it not being mobile responsive, the time really came to update the site. Over the past two days Dara and I focused on the task at hand and here we are. We still have a bit of tweaking and tidying to do, but really this is just the beginning, as we plan to develop the site over time. On phones the site is a little buggy right now with the mobile menu and the logo which I'll work to get that fixed over the [...]
Dara and I reviewing proofs of The Astral Codex by Belsebuub Just wanted to give a quick update on the paperback version of The Astral Codex by Belsebuub. From Saturday to Monday, Dara and I were reviewing and finalizing the print version of The Astral Codex and we sent it to the printers on Monday night. We should be getting a proof of the book in the next few days, and if all goes well, the book should be available sometime next week! We brought our designer Dara in to help with designing the look of the inside pages of the book, as she's got amazing design and typography skills :) So the layout of this book is like none that we've done before—it has a fresh new look! We'll let everyone know when the book is available.
Yesterday we shot a video update regarding the free eBooks on Belsebuub.com and the extent of copyright infringement and plagiarism Belsebuub faces with his works. Belsebuub has also posted a blog on his site regarding the issue http://belsebuub.com/the-plagiarism-of-this-work-is-too-extensive
Solstice greetings! We’ve been somewhat quiet here on the blog this year, but wanted to take the time to touch base with everyone. Although we’ve been quiet here, it’s been a very busy year for us, and that's why we haven’t been able to be as active on the blog :) Some big things happened for Mystical Life Publications this year, like the website upgrade and redesign of Belsebuub.com, the first MLP publishing of a printed book by Belsebuub, and coordinating the distribution of the Flight of the Feathered Serpent paperback book through Amazon. Through the year, a strong volunteer plagiarism team has emerged, sending us cases of copyright infringement in which we have resolved at least 50 cases this year and at least 141 cases total over the past few years. There are a handful of cases pending at the moment and still many cases of plagiarism and copyright infringement of our author's works un-contacted, so the problem is still quite rampant, however the self-formed plagiarism team from our readers has been a big help for us in finding the cases out there that exist, so we can follow them up, and work to protect the integrity of our [...]
