Product Description
Millions of books on relationships have been printed in the last ten years. Why do we need another one? We need The Art of Love: The Craft of Relationship for the same reasons that over four and a half million readers wanted Spencer Johnson's Who Moved My Cheese in a market that already had over 12,000 titles in print on the subject of change. Following Johnson's methods of teaching to a broad, modern audience, our book presents the profound principles that form a loving relationship in an easily accessible manner. Using a deceptively simple approach, it will help people shift their attitudes and give them the skills to create a loving, long-lasting partnership.

There are so many titles in print on change because it is an ongoing challenge for most of us. So are relationships. With more than six decades of experience working with couples, we knew we had vital information, lessons, and insights to share, but we insisted that the book be short, engaging, and easy to read. A helpful book does not have to be dense to be packed with wisdom, skills, and ideas that can open the door to a new era of fulfilling relationships.

We have brought complex material and common sense into a format that is carefully constructed to achieve results by being communicative and consistent, enjoyable and hopeful. Unlike the textbook appearance of most self-help books that include psychological jargon, case examples and exercises, The Art of Love: The Craft of Relationship uses stories and dialogue to teach profound insights and valuable skills. It sticks to people talking in a way the reader can identify with and understand. It brings hope because the reader who is experiencing stress in a relationship can see that other people, like them, are, too. And, that learning a few basic skills can bring lasting change and renew love.

The best news is that our book will be useful to many people because it will give them a new way to look at their relationship and the skills to handle problem after problem in a way that builds love and trust. Our mission is to appeal strongly to those who are considering a relationship, seeking to renew one, or are looking for a way to understand a partner and a process for dealing with problems in love, romance, sex, intimacy and living together.

Go West Young Lady! - News Release

Fisher King Press is pleased to
announce the publication of

Snakes, a novel 
by Patricia Damery

Shipping Date: March 21, 2011 - Order Now

Go West Young Lady! Love – Sex – Naiveté – Family – Values – Commitment – Betrayal . . . Patricia Damery weaves a seductive tale about life’s insoluble contradictions. A Midwestern farm girl leaves the confines of her family heritage and is transformed by life’s vicissitudes. Snake stories, symbols of transformation, are cleverly intertwined in this highly entertaining novel as Angela, the heroine, undergoes numerous rights of passages, and comes to terms with life - her life – exactly where, when, and how it unfolds. Highly recommended, Snakes is deeply rooted in Mother Earth—and Soul.
 —Literary Aficionado

Snakes is a poetic meditation about the intertwined cycles of life and farming . . . the memories, dreams and reflections of a nurturing mother claiming her authentic role within the natural order of children and husbands, kitchens and bedrooms, warm tidal pools and freshly ploughed fields—and gardens where snakes live amongst the flowers.
—Malcolm’s Round Table, Malcolm R. Campbell, 
author of the novel Garden of Heaven: an Odyssey

So what is Snakes about? It is about the Risks we take, both major and minor, that coalesce over time to define our lives. It is about the Fear of the little things and Fear of the big things, and at the end of the day, the month, the season, and our lives, finding out that it was a shorter distance to Love than we thought. It’s about Mistakes and Regrets, and how necessary they both are to a life well and fully lived. It’s about the Earth and the Sea; the Individual and the Familial; Respect and Trust; Youth and Age. But most of all, Snakes is about finding one’s place in the Universe and how that journey is formed.
—New Mystics,  Joey Madia, author of Jester-Knight


In addition to Snakes, Patricia Damery is the author of Farming Soul: A Tale of Initiation.  She grew up in the rural Midwest and witnessed the demise of the family farm through the aggressive practices of agribusiness. With her husband Donald, she has farmed biodynamically for eleven years in the Napa Valley of California.

About the Author
Ken Kimmel is a Jungian psychoanalyst and psychotherapist in private practice in Seattle since 1981, and a clinical and faculty member of the North Pacific Institute for Analytical Psychology.  A portion of his graduate fieldwork in 1974--the practice of Spiritism in Brazil--has been published in Realms of Healing, by Stanley Krippner and Alberto Villoldo, (Berkeley, CA: Celestial Arts, 1976). His graduate studies and internship compared  archetypal motifs found in cross-cultural healing, shamanic initiation and dream practices with those found in dreams and fantasies of hospitalized, psychotic, and unmedicated patients who were part of a clinical study.

He is the former Director of the Pacific Northwest Center for Dream Studies. For three years he participated in a seminar program for the study and practice of British Object Relations psychoanalysis, prior to beginning Analytical training in 2002, where he received his Diploma in Analytical Psychology in 2008.
