Book Signing with Lois Chazen

News Release: Monday, August 29, 2016
Book Signing with Lois Chazen
  "The Key: Truths of the Universe"
Please join us for a Book Signing with author Lois Chazen of her new work "The Key: Truths of the Universe" on Wednesday, September 21st from 5 to 7pm @MetroWines. 
Bobbie Tyler Mauro Reategui Perez, Peruvian Visionary Jungle Artist, who created the art for "The Key: Truths of the Universe" and River, "The Ambassadog" from Full Moon Farm Wolfdog Sanctuary will also join us for the Book Signing.
Turtle Dove Publications is donating 20% of all proceeds from "The Key:Truths of the Universe," to Full Moon Farm Wolfdog Sanctuary in Black Mountain (http://fullmoonfarm.org/). There is no charge for the event but your purchase of the book helps this worthy cause.
Calling the book "a remarkable dance of words," Karen Richardson Dunn of Penquin Random House, Simon and Schuster, says "The Key: Truths of the Universe" weaves ancient spiritual principles into a coherent unity offering a Divine wisdom that can be applied to the challenges of everyday life. "For spiritual seekers, not only is the book a worthwhile read, it just may change your life." 
About Lois: Born in Miami, Lois Chazen now lives in Black Mountain. Her first book, "Loving Ruby," inspired by the true story of a baby female cardinal she rescued, won the GOLD Mom's Choice Award in the Philanthropic category. The Defenders of Wildlife emblem is on the front cover and the organization still receives proceeds from this book.  Lois also won the Readers View Literary Award. 
Lois has recently created an amazing new series," Maddy Magoo's Animal Rescues," featuring different animal sanctuaries, representing all categories of species in every book with a portion of the proceeds sent to the sanctuaries and affiliate organizations. 
Her first book from this series, "Tugen" (Too-gen), is also based on a true story about a young rooster who was rescued by the Asheville Humane Society and placed at Goat Mountain Sanctuary. Tugen was clueless about who, what, or where he was, and why he was abandoned by his mother.
The second book in the series called, "River," about the beautiful and popular wolf-dog at Full Moon Farm in Black Mountain was written to help the wolves, wolf-dogs, and dogs. Lois will be spotlighting all species of animals. 
"My life-path is to create compassion for all animals on Earth, by creating a consciousness shift in humankind," Lois says.  "My heart belongs to the animals!"
