From Timothy Houlihan, Ph.D., Academic Dean, St. Francis College: Pain and Memory: Reflections on the Strength of the Human Spirit in Suffering . . . "is a remarkable volume filled with small and large treasures. I especially enjoyed Anne Whitehouse’s Rose’s Dream. It captures the unreal nature of sadness after the death of a longtime companion, the enormous will we have to muster in order to bring ourselves through the suffering, and our surprise at finding we have the ability to go on. And Kathie Giorgio brilliantly sums up the way in which a loved one’s death changes our perspective, not just on ourselves, but on size and color and the place in which we live."

Poet ANNE WHITEHOUSE has published (in addition to poems in Pain and Memory) a collection of poetry: Blessings and Curses. Read a Review of her book from the Santa Fe Writers Project Journal.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~Novelist and short story writer RIVKA KEREN has had an article published about her (and her story "Aisha" from Pain and Memory) in Ynet, the online version of Yedioth Achronot, one of Israel's biggest newspapers. In fact, the story will also be part of a Spanish anthology about Arab-Israeli relationships.

We are happy to report that by virtue of our alliance with Amazon.com (and consequently with strategic allegiances to their affiliate printers and companies), Editions Bibliotekos titles (from Pain and Memory forward) will soon be available to the trade (U.S. bookstores and retailers) through Ingram. The Ingram Book Co. is one of the largest wholesale distributors of books – virtually all bookstores order from them. This is not an instant change, and we will need to market our titles to such retailers and bookstores – but, as a publisher, having our books available through Ingram is a big boost. Ultimately, all of this should bode very well for Bibliotekos authors.
