Title: Temple Dancer by Amy Weintraub
Genre: Spiritual Thriller | Pages: 300 | ISBN: 9780974738062
Release Date: September 2020 | Publisher: Tumamoc Press
In a spiritual thriller that connects the lives of two presumably disconnected women, Temple Dancer burrows deep into the mirroring stories of both Wendy Rabin and Saraswati as they explore the divine connection. Set in India in 1997, and later at an ashram in Buckingham, Virginia in 2016, Temple Dancer begins when Wendy takes a spiritual pilgrimage to India following a painful divorce. On a crowded train in the midst of Wendy’s excursion, she meets Saraswati, an enigmatic older woman who claims to have been a temple dancer. The mysterious encounter between the two leaves Wendy with Saraswati’s diary and a request that she honor the profaned culture by sharing her story. Twenty years later, after having lost the diary’s translation, its inexplicable reappearance forces Wendy to face her difficult past. Her reading and meditation trigger flashbacks of her painful mistakes in the trance of love.
ABOUT The AUTHOR Although I’m best known for my books and teachings on Yoga and mental health, Yoga for Depression (Broadway Books) and Yoga Skills for Therapists (W.W. Norton), my passion, ever-since I picked up a pencil in the second grade to write a book like the ones I loved (those Dana Sisters and Nancy Drew mystery series), was to write fiction. I grew up in Pittsburgh before it was green and beautiful. I read to find a brighter place in other worlds, and I wanted to write books that could meet that bleakness and transcend it. In pursuit of that desire, I returned to school, earning the Master of Fine Arts in literary fiction from Bennington College Writing Seminars in 2000.
I received the Allen Tate Memorial Award for the Short Story and was a finalist for the William Faulkner Award for the Novel and for the Heekin Group Foundation Fellowship for the novel-in-progress. I also received Second Place, in the Writer’s Digest Writing Competition for Literary Fiction.
I began my love affair with yoga in the late 1980’s, after a successful career in television broadcasting. My own recovery (from chronic depression) led me to research and write books on yoga and mental health, and I became passionate about sharing what had helped me heal with others who suffered.
In 2004, I founded the LifeForce Yoga® Healing Institute, which continues to train yoga teachers and health care providers in yoga practices appropriate in clinical and yoga therapy settings.

13 Days of Girls Camp:
A Romantic Comedy by Robbin J. Peterson
She’s stuck repeating Friday the 13th.
He’s the blind-date she can’t escape.
Amber Doria hasn’t forgiven her sister Kate for marrying her boyfriend—or for being her prettier, bossy older sister. Now, pregnant-and-content Kate has apparently made it her life mission to get Amber married, and she has her sights set on Jason Weston. When the blind date falls through, Amber thinks she’s in the clear. Unfortunately, Kate has other plans. Amber is enlisted as a last-minute nurse at church girls camp in Pontoosuc, Illinois, with Kate in charge. Endurance is Amber’s new philosophy, as she prepares for the longest week of her life. A tornado, a head-injury, and a guy who likes cat-memes set the stage for a re-occurring Friday the 13th Amber might never escape. Kate insists God cares about Amber’s love life, but Amber is fairly sure she’s just a lab-rat experiment gone wrong.
ABOUT The AUTHOR:
I graduated from Utah State University in 2002 with a BS in English Literature. Then I settled into being a stay-at-home mom, married to an amazing farmer with a Master's in Plant Science. My obsession with the craft of writing led me to attend a writing conference, then another. I won a contest in 2010 for best first chapter, which became the first chapter of my book "Going Home." I live in California. I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I play the viola in my local symphony. I have six kids. I homeschool, I public school. I'm a Ravenclaw, a Jane Austen fan, and I'm an extroverted introvert. It's a thing, you should Google it.
