Mystic Ink Rings In The New Year With New Offerings And A New Look
Mystic Ink Publishing starts the new year with an updated web site, two new books, and a documentary film.
SAN DIEGO – Jan. 3, 2017 – PRLog — Mystic Ink Publishing is “hitting the ground running” in 2017 with a revamped website and some exciting new offerings. First out of the gate is the Santa Barbara Writers Conference Scrapbook, both a book and a film titled with the same name that evolved out of a three way collaboration between conference founder Mary Conrad, Y. Armando Nieto, and Matthew J. Pallamary.
Lisa Angle, of Ninety Degrees Media and producer of Literary Gumbo co-produced the companion documentary film in collaboration with Mystic Ink Publishing and has entered it into the Santa Barbara International Film Festival.
Angle is also responsible for the redesign of the new Mystic Ink web site through Ninety Degrees Media, a Santa Barbara, California company whose mission is to expand knowledge through creativity and technology.
In early spring, Mystic Ink will be releasing n0thing, a science fiction novel titled after Jordan (n0thing) Gilbert, a top tier international video game champion along with a giveaway to celebrate the book’s release. n0thing pushes through the boundaries of story, genre, and reality itself while redefining literary tradition by putting real life celebrities into a fictional story. The other real life co-star in this tale is renowned psychologist Dr. Stanley Krippner.
Science, technology, psychology, neurochemistry, and cutting edge brain research combine with shamanism, mythology, visionary experience, and the paranormal in this once and future archetypal tale.
Jordan “n0thing” Gilbert is a professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player who is one of three players to win nine ESEA Championships.
Dr. Stanley Krippner is a psychologist, parapsychologist, and executive faculty member and Professor of Psychology at Saybrook University in Oakland, California and was the director of the Maimonides Medical Center Dream Research Laboratory.
