Watching Jane Ashley give birth to the book “The Path of the Priestess: Discover Your Divine Purpose” has been my ultimate lesson in what it means to Priestess. Jane has held a space that is bigger than you could possibly imagine for me and my co-authors Rose Cole, Annie Lalla, Jennifer Russell, Jena la Flamme, Julie McAfee, Jessica Cornejo Gallegos, Elayne Kalila Doughty, and Sofiah Thom to write our chapters for this book. Jane has shown up with so much integrity, honor, clarity, love, and style through the entire process. And through her own personal challenges, she has shown me what it means to truly sit in the fire. Thank you Jane... I bow to you in reverence, honor and with so much respect.

Are you ready to embrace the New Feminine Evolution?

A new woman is emerging from the darkness—strong, determined, flowing with primordial power—fearlessly facing her demons… 

The New Feminine Evolutionary is a groundbreaking book: revealing in total for
the first time the deep essences that run throughout this movement of women who are changing the world. This book is bold, fearless, and resonates with honesty. Each author brings her unique slice of essence to a chapter with stories and wisdom, as a special gift to the reader—reaching out a hand and lighting the way for her to step onto the path of transformation.

Forged around the fire circle, this woman stands ready to step forward, fully embodied, carrying the torch of transformation to all those courageous enough to evolve…

This collaborative book, The New Feminine Evolutionary, tells the story of 25 pioneers—women who personify the Divine Feminine: Healers. Medicine women. Artists. Quantum guides. Activists. 

She is US—created out of the forces of change—the Maiden, the Mother, the Crone. She is the woman next door.

It is time to declare your power, time to remember our sacred mother, Gaia… time to add your voice and define who you are—and what you are doing to bring the resonance of love to the world.

Published by Flower of Life Press, this book establishes a conversation about the different facets of this new feminine evolutionary woman, and how our open hearts and powerful lineage of sisterhood can transform not just the world we each inhabit, but the global energetic of love.

Praise for Flower of Life Press

 

I'm awed by the way my writing was simplified yet sculpted carefully to keep my own words intact. I love it! And so my journey of writing and authoring books is being deeply cultivated; I shall continue this part of my journey with a much deeper appreciation of the process. I've completely enjoyed this entire process, including the immense opening up of transparency in sharing my awakening experience. Thank you so much for this priceless experience.

~Olana Barros, www.OlanaBarros.com, co-author of “The New Feminine Evolutionary: Embody Presence—Become the Change”

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 I see such HUGE abundance, prosperity, joy, harmony and love in this relationship. Love you Jane Ashley.

Our offices

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!  


 

The Power of Sisterhood and Collaborative Marketing

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. It’s time to bring forward the
Voice of the Feminine.

This energy inspires me to pull our community together and create transformational books that can be marketed collaboratively—with womxn's voices at the core and a shared message of authentic and vulnerable truth that serves the ONE—the Whole—ALL of Life.

Together, we are stronger. We are a family of rising womxn authors, supporting and uplifting each other. The collective energy of our community is powerful leverage as we build audience and get more eyes on our mission and voices.

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

We create marketing strategies so you have a plan to take your book out into the world, share your wisdom, and monetize it—with the intention of focusing your attention on those activities that you love and enjoy doing as you grow your sales, readership, and visibiility.

Marketing is an action—a flow of energy that must shift as quickly as the vehicle of communication changes… (remember life before cell phones?) This flow can mean everything to success—or accomplish nothing. It can be viral...or just a virus. 

Some common marketing activities:

  1. Social media campaigns

  2. Marketing materials – posters, flyers, postcards, etc.

  3. Press release writing and distribution

  4. 20-min stage talk

  5. Creating an opt in/lead magnet using your book

  6. Brand uplevel and author website messaging

  7. Local, regional, & national opportunities

  8. Book signings and Tours

  9. And more….

We’ll feature you on our website and in our company-wide marketing efforts. We’ll promote you on 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 those kinds of campaigns that rock the world.

As you step into greater levels of visibility and leadership with your new book, know that you are fully held a chalice of deep trust, love, and support.

Our purpose is to midwife the birth of your book, message,
and wisdom out into the world to be received by those who need it.

Flower of Life Press Marketing—Building your platform with energy and authenticity.
