Foreword Review’s Ashley Holstrom writes, “A fun, straight talking history of the clitoris, The Sweetness of Venus is a win for feminism.”
What a breath of fresh air—finally, a book prioritizing the importance of the clitoris and sexual pleasure, backed up by science, thorough historical research, and so much humor!”

Praise for Tim Rayborn's Qwyrk
“I liked this book a great deal! Charming and funny, the characters are delightful, and it’s scary exactly where it should be. I wouldn’t have missed it for anything.”
~ Peter S. Beagle, author of The Last Unicorn
“Qwyrk, by Tim Rayborn, is, for starters, delightfully… quirky. Rayborn’s ear for culture is as good as his ear for music, and his fantasy romp through a small British town has some of the same wacky flavor we find in the mythic send-ups written by Tom Holt/K.J. Parker. Rayborn’s elves may be updated, but human nature remains the same. As Qwyrk herself tells Jilly, her kind visit our world ‘To give children a little nudge when they need it… and sometimes remind adults of what they’ve been missing.’ In times when we all need distraction, here is a tale to take your mind off your troubles for a while.”
~ Diana L. Paxson, author of Sword of Avalon
“It’s a quest, it’s a lark that romps through human and magical worlds alike, and it’s a whimsical and delightful story set in Northern England. Qwyrk is engaging, endearing, and unpredictable in its human and magical relationships and conundrums. Fans of fantasy who enjoy magical realism injected into the everyday milieu of Britain will relish the nature of Qwyrk, first in a projected series of stories about misfits and the sometimes-hilarious mishaps that evolve from seemingly good intentions.”
~ Donovan’s Literary Services/Midwest Book Review
“Bringing the familiar modern world together with the fantastic and mythical in a smart and witty way, Qwyrk is a delightful foray into magical realism. Fans of Pratchett, Gaiman, Beagle, and de Lint will absolutely feel at home in this story! Rayborn takes figures from traditional folklore and gives them a wonderfully fresh and believable update. You’ll be hooked right away on both the human and magical characters – they’re engaging and familiar in such a way that you simply must know what happens next. Strong and capable female characters, the challenges of negotiating magic in a world that’s largely forgotten it, effective world-building, and a good dose of sarcasm all make this book such a fun read. I can’t wait to read more about the further adventures of Qwyrk!
~ Laura Tempest Zakroff, author of Sigil Witchery and Weave the Liminal
“You will never look at a rose bush the same way again! A fun romp through a modern English fairy encounter, written with a light heart, a clever mind, and a wicked sense of humour. Enjoy!”
~ Elizabeth Kerner Ewing, author of Song in the Silence, The Lesser Kindred, and Redeeming the Lost

Boulder, CO —December 1, 2020 — Armin Lear Press is announcing the December 8, 2020 launch of its new imprint, Thousand Acres, with the publication of One Minute to Midnight by Vincent dePaul Lupiano.
Rayne Foster is on a covert mission to surveil the estate of Florida mafia boss, Donato “Cheese” Chesario. Photographing from a tree in a violent thunderstorm, she spots a camo-clad intruder sneaking into the mobster’s estate using a grappling hook. His intent: steal a box stamped with a Nazi swastika containing an enigmatic object Chesario brought back from Germany after WWII. Fatal complications slam Rayne with blistering surprise when a rogue FBI agent and his nefarious cohort known as the “Magician,” kill their way into the estate to also steal the box. But the object of everyone’s intent has disappeared—an item that, in the wrong hands, will have severe international consequences. Rayne senses her CIA field director has duped her. And as he intended, Rayne is now the bait. And she has no idea what is inside the box.

Armin Lear Releases THE COHERENCE EFFECT
Author Team of Experts in Ayurveda, Vedic Health Practices, Meditation; Foreword by Dr. Tony Nader
Boulder, CO — November 2, 2020 — The Coherence Effect, publishing November 4, describes how to tap into the laws of nature to improve health, higher brain functioning and well-being.
The book is the product of years of research and practice by a powerhouse team of authors:
· Dr. Robert Keith Wallace's postgraduate research at Harvard continued his pioneering research published in Science and Scientific American on the physiological effects of meditation. He is the author of several books on meditation and Ayurveda.
· Dr. Christopher Clark followed his residency at Yale’s Department of Psychiatry by pioneering the integration of Ayurvedic medicine into the practice of medicine and psychiatry; he is the author of Ayurvedic Healing—Contemporary Maharishi AyurVeda Medicine and Science.
· Jay B. Marcus has been a teacher of meditation for 45 years and has lectured extensively on drug abuse, prison reform, and meditation. He is the author of four prior books on Transcendental Meditation.
The authors begin by taking readers on a health and healing journey with an understanding of nature’s Second Law of Thermodynamics. It says that anything that is not alive increases in entropy(disorder or decay) over time. Cars and houses fall apart, computers break down, food not growing becomes rotten. The same natural tendency towards entropy affects the human body, but living organisms, alone, have the ability to generate inner order or coherence and thereby grow and evolve, stalling the decaying and disordering effect of the Second Law and producing good health.
According to Dr. Clark, “Modern medicine uses pharmaceuticals and treatments to create order and remedy particular disorders,” but he says, “133 million Americans have chronic diseases, so something is missing in what we do for health.” The authors demonstrate that the pursuit of lasting health involves applying this principle of generating coherence to what keeps people healthy on a daily basis—to what and how people eat, to meditation, exercise, and strategies for good sleep.
The book shows the meditation programs that increase brain wave coherence (and practical benefits), and Ayurveda’s programs for diet, exercise, Yoga, and better sleep, which also work by creating coherence in the brain and body.
The coherence effect is the healing effect in the body of generating coherence. An interview with author Marcus is at: https://enjoytmnews.org/tm-talks/the-coherence-effect/.
Armin Lear Releases MUSIC VS THE MAN by Acclaimed Filmmaker Peter Rowe
90-Second Video Gives Potential Readers a Taste of the Action
Boulder, CO — October 1, 2020 —In Music vs The Man, released today, Canadian author, filmmaker, and painter Peter Rowe explores stories of musicians in the crosshairs of the authorities—police, border guards, mayors, city councils, the FBI, the Kremlin. A 90-second video gives potential readers a taste of the action.
Rowe notes: “Music wields the type of revolutionary power that politicians and authorities only dream of. Music has the power to open hearts, change minds, and get people to stand up for what they believe in. That’s why, for years authorities have been trying to censor it, throwing musicians in prison, raiding their homes, and sometimes even killing them.”
Rowe features stories of racial oppression, censorship, political extremism, extravagant behavior, self-destructive obsessions, and more as he deftly moves through music history.
Involved with music since the 1960s, Peter Rowe has made over 190 films as a director, writer, or producer. Among the musicians he has filmed are John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis, Leonard Cohen, and Joni Mitchell, at events like the Isle of Wight Festival and the Toronto Rock and Roll Revival, and concerts by the Jefferson Airplane and the Mothers of Invention.
Rowe’s credits include documentary profiles of both the psychedelic soul band The Chambers Brothers and famed New York DJ Cousin Brucie, as well as features including Treasure Island, and The Best Bad Thing. His 49-part television series Angry Planet took him to 30 countries on all seven continents, and aired in 35 countries around the world. He’s won and been nominated for many awards, including Geminis, Genies and film-festival prizes.Tales of his film career are described in his 2013 book, Adventures in Filmmaking.
Chronicled in Music vs The Man are the stories of the FBI’s battle against John Lennon, Donald Trump’s unauthorized use of the music of the Rolling Stones, the US Drug Administration’s harassment of Billie Holiday that led to her death, the Chilean military assassination of folksinger Victor Yara, the role of The Beatles in bringing down the Soviet Union, the fight throughout the 50s against rock and roll, the violent world of Narcocorrido music in the drug wars of Mexico, and many others.
Finally, a realistic approach to today’s modern business challenges
without all the often-antiquated techniques taught to us in the past decades.

Armin Lear Releases A GUIDE TO GROWING YOUR BUSINESS
New Book for Entrepreneurs
Needing to Grow Revenues Today
Boulder, CO—September 18, 2020—In A GUIDE TO GROWING YOUR BUSINESS,, William D. Hughes delivers practical, immediately useful how-to information for entrepreneurs with aggressive growth plans and serious sales goals in the face of pressing time constraints.
Unlike books written for yesterday’s business climate, Hughes’ book shows how to leverage today’s technologies into finding new customers. Readers will learn how to crack new markets, sidestep competitors’ tactics, and shorten sales cycles. Key sections focus on how to protect intellectual property and work with and around multiple online venues like Google, Amazon, and Alibaba.
“Much of what we were taught and believed in for generations doesn’t work today,” said Hughes. “Behavioral Economics has debunked the conventional wisdom that assumes man is rational and makes logical decisions. Instead, real people regularly make bad decisions using all sorts of irrational, self-serving, self-sabotaging behaviors. Which is why the most carefully planned business strategies are regularly foiled by customer decisions that are puzzling, nonsensical and simply wrong.”
Armin Lear Releases SIMPLICITY
Book on How to Always Get into The Zone Available;
Launch Event August 29—15 Minutes of Sports History
Boulder, CO—August 5, 2020—In SIMPLICITY, Steven Yellin, gives up the secrets he has shared with the champions who endorse him. Based on neurophysiology, the science of how the brain physiology produces fluid motion in all sports, he describes what has to occur to get into “the Zone”—the Holy Grail for athletes in any sport. It is a practical, how-to book with the underpinning of science and the corroboration of #1 performances directly linked to “the Fluid Motion Factor golf program.” Scott McCarron, winner of the 2019 Schwab Cup and the number one senior golfer in the world, has used Steven’s program for the past four years.
On the publication date, the author will conduct a 15-minute launch on Zoom, with the window being a Muhurta, considered ideal for a successful launch of a new project. Participants have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity—literally—to share the celebration and connect with the author for future conversations and coaching opportunities. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request a slot or for additional information.
“Golfers live in a world of continual experimentation,” says Yellin. “Every week, and sometimes every day, they are trying new things to improve their game. What are they searching for? Timing. Timing is the Holy Grail, for producing fluid, consistent motion. And timing is the most difficult thing to teach golfers. Until now.”
In this revolutionary book that is sure to change how coaches teach and players play, Yellin teaches a simple and powerful program that allows athletes to enter the Zone. Focused on golfers, Yellin uses every opportunity—drive to putt—to illustrate how the Fluid Motion Factor program works for everybody.
“There is one process in the mind that, when accessed, produces career rounds and major championship victories,” says Yellin. “The only problem has been that athletes never know when it will show up, how long it will last and when it does leave, how to get it back.” SIMPLICITY teaches golfers how to access that process by design.
Steven Yellin is the founder of the Fluid Motion Factor program, a mental sports training program. He has worked with professional golfers that have won over $80 million dollars in prize money. His program is endorsed by some of the leading golf professionals around the world, including legendary teaching pro David Leadbetter, who wrote the Foreword for SIMPLICITY.
