New Audio Edition Release: “All That Was Asked” by Vanessa MacLaren-Wray

We are extremely pleased to announce the availability of the audio edition of All That Was Asked by Vanessa MacLaren-Wray.

It was supposed to be an easy jaunt to observe the stick-like aliens of Deep Valley Universe.

But Ansegwe — perpetual student, aspiring poet, and scion of the (allegedly criminal) Varayla Syndicate — well, he just has to ruin everything. As everyone knows, Ansegwe may have sensibility, but he’s not long on sense.

When a weird, twitchy little creature attaches itself to him, Ansegwe violates every protocol in the handbook to save its life. Finding himself in all kinds of trouble, Ansegwe needs to make some serious life changes, starting with that complicated family of his.

Ansegwe may just have to grow up … now that he’s adopted an alien.

Narrated by Trevor Wilson, the audio edition of All That Was Asked is available on Audible, Amazon, and (soon) on iTunes.

New Book Release: “Back to the Land in Silicon Valley” by Marlene Anne Bumgarner

We are thrilled to announce the release of Back to the Land in Silicon Valley by Marlene Anne Bumgarner.

“We all worked together. Ate together. Sang together. Learned together. We had a good life. After living close to the natural cycles of the earth year after year, good and not good, we grew stronger and more resilient, learned to manage our occasional conflicts with tolerance and love.”

When Marlene Bumgarner and her husband moved to a rural plot of land in 1973, she thought of herself as simply a young mother seeking an affordable and safe place in which to raise her child.

By the time she left the land nearly a decade later, she had written two books and a weekly newspaper column, served as contributing editor to a national magazine, a college instructor, and a sought-after public speaker. Her natural food store, The Morgan Hill Trading Post, was the first one in her community.

Follow Marlene and her friends as they live on the land, coping with the challenges of rural life as Silicon Valley evolves into the high-tech center it is today, and the world in which they live transforms itself culturally, economically, and politically.

Back to the Land in Silicon Valley is available in hardcover, trade paperback, and digital editions. Signed editions are also available.

Leah holds your hand as you read the book and begin detailing your own commitment to make healing changes in your life. She also provides you with real-world, affordable recovery resources you can access wherever you are.

Now is the time to reclaim your sexual and intimate power and agency, and to know that you’ll change our rape culture — one survivor at a time — as you step into your own sexual trauma recovery story.
