Congratulations to Dr. Lisa Sanders: Netflix to Launch Docuseries based on "Diagnosis"

Congratulations to Dr. Lisa Sanders, whose popular New York Times "Diagnosis" column will become a docuseries on Netflix! Fans may also recognize her as the doc behind House MD.

Flip to the back cover of Scars: An Anthology by Erin Wood (Et Alia Press, 2015), and you'll find this blurb from Dr. Sanders:

"If scars are the memory of pain, then this volume is a body of those memories recollected as stories--stories as compelling, as vivid, as dramatic as the thing, the scar, itself."

Congratulations to Bruce S. Snow for a Tremendous Review in Arkansas Review

Thank you to Arkansas Review: A Journal of Delta Studies and reviewer Stan Weeber for an outstanding review of Bruce S. Snow's Can Everybody Swim? A Survival Story from Katrina's Superdome

"Legendary sociologist Kai T. Erickson predicted that Hurricane Katrina would be the most studied disaster in U.S. history. It may also be one of the most storied. Voluminous archives of Katrina survivor stories are now tucked away in university libraries, oral history projects, social media sites, and in films, books, newspapers, journals, and magazines worldwide for historians to peruse. Standing tall above these documented accounts is Bruce Snow’s Can Everybody Swim? which could someday gain fame as the most richly detailed and complete account of the human misery at the Louisiana Superdome in late August and early September 2005."  ~ Stan Weeber, Arkansas Review 48.3 (December 2017). 

 

 

Congratulations, Bruce! We are humbled and grateful that you chose Et Alia as your publisher. 

Something Different for Valentine's Day!

Can we truly love others if we don't first love ourselves? Self-love and development of self are life-long processes, and we need help! The Mud & The Lotus: A Workbook and Guide for Students of Yoga by Courtney Denise Butler is a ready resource that can help you prime many areas of your life, whether or not you are taking a step toward teacher training or simply want to deepen your practice. Teacher training costs thousands, but Butler packs life-changing knowledge into a book that costs only about $35. 

Order The Mud & The Lotus before Valentine’s Day and get a jumbo sample class card ($6) free. 

You’ll discover perspective-changing reading, such as a look at the 8 limbs of yoga and how they apply to your life. Fitting as we enter Valentine season, is considering the Yama (Limb 1) of Aparigraha, or Non-Attachment:

Some attachments are necessary, of course, as we are attached to our own family members and those we love. We need certain things in our lives like food, clothing, and shelter. However, do we place an emphasis on having things a certain way or do we know we are important and worthy without ‘things’? ... that we can go on in spite of loss? ... these are great questions to ask oneself: Am I doing this because of my fear of unworthiness? Do I feel I need to be a certain type of person to receive love? If I didn’t have this or that (clothes, car, man or woman, status, etc.), would I feel whole?” ~Courtney Denise Butler
