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
