Praise for Flower of Life Press

This woman ... Jane S. Ashley ... I chose her to publish my book Oms from the Mat .. you know why? Because one of her favorite people on the planet is Louise Hay and when I met her she said, "I want to create the next Hay House Publishing"... which is a HUGE statement that inspired me to say a big fat YES to her and her epic husband Scott Watrous.
They are a dynamic duo to pay attention to for sure!
Not only that but she has daughters—she's a devoted mother and supports Girls Elevate—I see such HUGE abundance, prosperity, joy, harmony and love in this relationship. Love you Jane Ashley.

Jane Ashley, Publisher

I have always seen the world as a canvas, and my education as a psychotherapist and as a designer centers on merging emotion and form, layers of texture and energy merged into a statement of visual essence. Scott puts words to everything he feels, and I paint the picture that takes form in my heart, defining our clients with truth and their own reflection. I love this work! With our pathway clear, Flower of Life Press and Flower of Life Creative become the dynamic container for the conscious evolution we all share.

I am many other things besides a Publisher—mom to 3 girls, daughter, sister, wife, friend, and daughter in law. All of the push and pull women face everyday keeps me moving at lightening speed, holding space for all that life brings—soccer and softball, dance competitions and band concerts, everyday looking for time to just be me. 

I believe in the power of sisterhood, and I am totally committed to honoring the Divine Feminine in each of us, and holding the highest vibration of love for ourselves and the planet. That is my calling. Being a Publisher is a dream, and a responsibility. I am ready. 

Scott Watrous, Chief Strategist

When I met Jane Ashley, my career in book publishing was almost 25 years old. Looking back, I had a love/hate relationship with my job. I loved the books, and business strategy flowed easily. I hated the bullshit, playing the chess board of company politics only by burying my heart deep in my soul. When I left, I knew I would be back, but on my terms, my own evolution guiding me to the right moment—that synchronistic spark that aligns you and the Universe into one energy. 

Flower of Life Press was formed with alchemy, defined with purpose, and dusted with magical light. Our work building brands and giving vision a frame brought a deeper intuitive connection, and Spirit illuminated the pathway. We are ready to step into the next phase of our lives. The time is right. 

Scott entered the publishing world behind the register at a bookstore in 1981, and since then the game has changed many times.

With no internet or opportunity to self-publish, authors had only one way to go—the very challenging road that led to traditional publishing. If you were very lucky, you joined the handful of authors who got a "deal", and if your were very very lucky, you might have made some money. Along the way, you gave up the rights to your work, and the publisher did what they wanted with your content, design and marketing. Some books "made it" but most were lost as publishers chased "bestsellers", relegating wonderful and important voices to the remainder table, often holding onto the publishing rights until the last penny was squeezed from the book. We know this business well, and Flower of Life Press was created to do things very differently in the new inter-connected world.

Our model focuses primarily on the process of distilling your essence—listening, learning, and guiding you along your publishing path. We are not just publishers: we are coaches and intuitives, evolving with you while you write and we craft your book, website and brand.

Flower of Life Press is all about your destiny—not our bottom line. Together, our authors define who we are, and we will succeed together. 

Our work always starts with the author (after all, it’s your book!) and follows the path that will make the most impact. We will find the right “package” for your unique message—paper or electronic, bookstore sales or “back of the room”—whatever fits your desire. We want to be your team—and we will never take your publication rights, or build something that you don’t absolutely love!  

Flower of Life Creative is dedicated to finding authenticity and the essence of your message.

We craft brands, books, card decks, programs and products that reflect the power of the authors voice, and creating visual textures that create the highest possible vibration.

From concept to execution, Flower of Life Creative will offer the support and services you need to bring the marketplace to you.

Our branding work begins with you. Our mantra has always been "We define your essence", our intuitive strengths growing keener as we expand and learn. Usually our clients have outgrown their brands, the vibration of their websites and products lagging beyond the "shift". Our process is deeply personal, the result is a brand that not only focuses on today, but can evolve as you and your business change. 

Many of our authors kick off the process at our home on the Connecticut River, at a Flower of Life River Retreat Branding Immersion. Ask us about this option.

If you are serious about authenticity, and ready to walk up to the edge, fearlessly—Flower of Life Creative is your team.

Creative coaching, editing and design—held in a container of love and transformation.


Women have been gathering in circles for eons, and now is an important time in our history to become fully empowered in our essence so that we can collectively change the vibration of the planet.

This energy inspires me to pull our tribe together and create transformational books and brands that can be marketed collaboratively—with women's voices at the core. We are a family of authors, supporting and uplifting each other.

The collective energy of our tribe will be powerful leverage as we build audience and get more eyes on our mission and voices. The most powerful sales tool is word of mouth...and Flower of Life Press was conceived as a way to enter the conversation and expand the tribe of truth seekers and truth tellers. 

Marketing is an action—a flow of energy that must shift as quickly as the vehicle of communication changes. (Remember only 10 or 15 years ago? No Facebook, Instagram, or smartphones.) The right marketing creates a vibration—this is the "buzz" that attracts customers and readers.  It can mean everything to success—or accomplish nothing. It can be viral...or just a virus. 

Flower of Life Press believes that seeds of truth will bear fruit—so the messaging must vibrate with the authors authentic voice and radiate with a compelling visual expression. 

Flower of Life Press will use every form of social media to create the buzz for our authors. We also market our authors through our Flower of Life Radio Show, as well as through regular webinars, social media campaigns, and live events. For our "breakout" authors, we work with our publicity partners to build the kind of campaign that will rock the world!

As you step into greater levels of visibility and leadership with your new book or brand, know that you are fully supported and that Flower of Life Press cares about getting your message out into the world, and into the right hands.
