PARK CITY, UTAH - 10/11/2018 — Journey into Land of NOW and learn how to quiet the mental chaos and enjoy the only moment we really have, the NOW. A practical guide on mindfulness for all ages.
On October 17, 2018, Katie Mullaly, author, and publisher Faceted Press will launch a Kickstarter campaign for Land of NOW, a practical book to help children live in the present moment that also appeals to ALL ages. The campaign is expected to raise $10,000 to print and distribute 2,500 copies of the book.
After a much-anticipated two-year wait, Land of NOW, the fourth book in the delightful Land of Children Books series will be arriving to help readers of all ages enjoy the present moment, the NOW by learning how to release the useless thoughts they don’t need. And as always, Land of NOW is sure to delight, inspire and continue to help fans and readers navigate life’s terrain. “Land of NOW came from my constant struggle to be in the moment, to not let my thoughts run amok. So, I took my own challenges and turned them into this book,” said author and publisher Katie Mullaly. “We are launching a Kickstarter Campaign, not only with the goal of funding the printing of 2,500 copies, but to also take this opportunity to get our books into schools, especially underserved schools. Donors can choose to have their books sent to a school of their choice, or we can choose. Not everyone has kids to read these books to, but we all know of a school that could use more mindfulness tools,” continued Mullaly.
This book is about being present. A call to sit here in “NOW,” and find ways to clear all the chaos and quiet your mind. The NOW is a place that we are always in, but thanks to the continuous chatter of thoughts in our heads, we miss out on what is really happening - the NOW. In Land of NOW, you learn the tools for how to be present in the moment by clearing out all the incessant thoughts that are blocking the NOW.
What is it that’s keeping you from enjoying this moment? From seeing the beauty and wonder of the NOW? Are you worried about something in the future that hasn’t happened yet? Or is it the past that is gnawing at you, unwilling to let go? Or maybe it’s because you’re longing for things to be different and don’t want to accept what IS, and so you miss out on the PRESENT MOMENT. Whatever the reason, Land of NOW can show you and your young readers, what to do with all the useless thoughts, and how to let them move on so you can enjoy the present, the only moment we have - the NOW. Land of NOW is written for ages 5 through 12 but intended for everyone!
