Mourning Dove Press Books

Mourning Dove Press is not interested in publishing more books.

Rather, we are interested in publishing the right books. And in working with the right authors.

Mourning Dove Press (MDP) authors are a very small, select group. They are willing to do the hard work of building their own platform and cultivating their own people.

How do we help?

By coaching them with strategic guidance, based on our experience of getting our existing authors successfully launched.

This doesn’t minimize the hard work that each author/entrepreneur must do. However, it practically guarantees success – in that each author/entrepreneur focuses on the right steps, at the right time – so that their efforts work culminate in a strategic victory campaign.

After all, we take our guidance from Sun Tzu, author of The Art of War.

What else? As our authors reach a certain level of “maturity,” we connect them with other successful authors, and with the tribes that each of these authors/entrepreneurs have been cultivating.

The result? Exponential outreach explosion.

It’s worth the effort.

And it’s worth the wait.

Do you think you have a book that would interest us?

How Will Unveiling Transform Your Life?

The provocative new approach to creating a women’s integration pathway!

Alay'nya (Alianna J. Maren, Ph.D.), author of Unveiling: The Inner Journey

Alay’nya (Alianna J. Maren, Ph.D.), author of Unveiling: The Inner Journey, helps women use Oriental dance (belly dance) as a personal fulfillment pathway.

Successful, accomplished, and intelligent women have just three questions:

  1. Is there a “next stage” after we’ve achieved career and family success?,
  2. Do we have an authentic, practical body/mind/psyche/energy integration pathway?, and
  3. Can we access our very own Fountain of Youth?

The answer to each is “Yes”! Using Unveiling as a roadmap, women today can confidently chart their way to a new realm of personal fulfillment and happiness.

Drawing on a centuries-old “secret code” describing our life journeys, Unveiling shows that the “true path” for adult women is to access all of who we are, instead of being limited to one or two “roles.”

Along the way, we find that we have our own unique “Heroine’s Quest,” distinctively different (and for women, much more powerful) than the classic “Hero’s Quest.”

Building on years of study with master teachers from the martial arts as well as from Oriental dance, Unveiling shows how the ancient women’s pathway of Oriental dance (“belly dance”) helps them cultivate and unify their total essence.

Finally, there really is a “Fountain of Youth”! Unveiling reveals the unique power that women have to access and use their sacred, sexual feminine energy! Personal Pathworking steps help readers unveil their own inner journey, revealing their inner beauty, wisdom, power, and – most of all – their sensual juiciness.
