MOTIVATIONAL PRESS TO PUBLISH SETTLED BY ERIC MAISEL
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Carlsbad, CA – 01-29-2014) Motivational Press
today announced an agreement to publish SETTLED by Eric Maisel, which
chronicles the birth of a second Israel in a thrilling adventure that paints a
picture of a better future for the world’s Jews. For release in Spring 2014.
SETTLED asks the question: What if Israelis moved en masse to a safer location
where their children could grow up in peace and prosperity? And what if
Jews from around the world began to join them? Could a single man create
this historic exodus? How would the world react? And what forces might be
unleashed as the idea of a second Israel began to take hold?
Follow David Cohen from the moment he survives a suicide bombing in
Jerusalem to that fateful day when he steps foot onto the island that will
become New Israel. Live the epic adventure that may foreshadow world
SETTLED is more than a novel about Israel and the Jews. It sets its sights
higher to examine how a lone individual can make a difference. In our time of
meaning crises and life purpose difficulties, with untold millions going through
the motions and wondering why there isn’t more to life, SETTLED provides a
blueprint for individual engagement. It announces to readers, maybe creating a
second Israel isn’t among your important life purposes but what is?
On the one hand SETTLED is an odyssey of adventure, chronicling the creation
of a second Israel. At the same time it is a novel of life purpose and meaning.
SETTLED happens to be about Israel and the Jews but it is more fundamentally
about how we can live in the 21st century, making our own meaning and
deciding on our own life purposes. If this genre has not existed before, it does
now: SETTLED is a shining star in the genre of life purpose literature.
Motivational Press is excited to work with Eric Maisel to share with readers:
• An exciting adventure story garnering worldwide praise
• A brilliant solution to Israel’s Mideast problems
• An actual blueprint for the creation of a second Israel
• A novel that inaugurates a new genre, life purpose literature
• A novel in the tradition of Orwell and Camus
