WHITE ROCK, British Columbia, Oct. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- With their first book receiving awards in both London and New York, and optioned by Hollywood producers within weeks of its release, married writing team Tamara Veitch DeFazio and Rene DeFazio are focused on the final edits of their second book: One Great Year: The Ancient Book of Changes set for release on Valentine's Day 2016.
The first book in the series: One Great Year is described by Meg Robinson, author of Drawn by a Star as "Indiana Jones meets Eckhart Tolle" and "a turning point in the collective psyche…"
The authors are discounting the digital version of One Great Year on Amazon October 15th and October 16th so fans have an opportunity to share the book with friends, and new readers can catch up before the release of the next book. On those days, the authors will be available through social media to answer questions and interact with fans.
The concept of the Great Year is based on documentation from more than 31 ancient civilizations, tracking the Earth through a 26,000 year cycle as it slowly wobbles on its axis; something NASA refers to as "the period of one complete cycle of the equinoxes around the ecliptic," and Plato called the "Perfect Year." History correlates the rise and fall of human consciousness through the ages with this same cycle. Using this as the unifying theme, the authors also reference philosophies and archaeological sites they researched for 3 ½ years before writing the first book, including:
- the pyramids and compound at Tiahuanaco in Bolivia
- the discovery of a highly advanced civilization estimated to be more than 11,000 years old at Gobekli Tepi in Turkey
- the Indian Sanskrit Vedas
- the life and legends surrounding Genghis Khan in the Book of Mongols and
- for the sequel, The I Ching of China.
This knowledge is woven into an epic love story and adventure consciousness novel that is an unforgettable tale of power, devotion, lust, and spirituality. For readers who want to dig deeper into this information, the authors provide a comprehensive bibliography and resource list at the end of the book.
