A First for Us in a New Book Ready for Pre-Order

SKZ4Açedrex has a few non-fiction works available, but nothing like this. And that’s the whole idea. There are too many diet books out there to count. This one is different.

Rook’s Page proudly presents Skinny Zen by Jan Holmes Frost. It features a positive, meditative approach to weight loss with a simple scoring system for meal plans and little gems of useful advice, all with a unique sense of humor. You won’t dread turning the pages of this encouraging essay.

“When walking, walk. When eating, eat.” ~Zen proverb

Think happy, think skinny, think Skinny Zen. Slow down, focus, take a deep, mindful breath, and learn strategies for your body’s particular needs.

Everyday diet books set a negative vibe when it comes to weight loss management. They even set negative goals for you! Skinny Zen shows you how to accentuate the positive and become in tune with your true weight loss regime. Frost’s wry wit will have you forgetting the D-word (diet) as you check out the numerous website links and learn new habits. Namaste.

Skinny Zen releases on May 10. Get a new attitude just in time for those summer clothes. It’s available for Kindle preorder now. Get it on release day automatically! Other formats and a softcover edition coming soon!

Nuestro primer libro/Our First Title: Don Quijote de la Mancha

Don Quijote de Miguel de Cervantes

No seríamos una editorial de todo lo mejor en español si no intentáramos distribuir Don Quijote de la Mancha en una edición digital de la más alta calidad, con las dos partes completas de 1605 y 1615 además de una tabla de contenido para fácil navegación por el libro. Así nuestra primera publicación es El ingenioso hidalgo don Quijote de la Mancha por Miguel de Cervantes.

El Quijote es el libro más mítico de la literatura castellana y los críticos creen que es la primera novela moderna. Más importante, es una lectura genial que te gustará siempre. Publicado en 1605 y 1615, todavía asombra con su imaginación. Cada uno tendrá una interpretación del hidalgo loco, que empieza lidiando los molinos y termina encariñándose en el corazón del lector. No te pierdas esta oportunidad para leer el Quijote sin gastar mucho dinero.

Esta edición incluye: el texto completo y original de las dos partes, una corta biografía de Miguel de Cervantes (en inglés) y una detallada tabla de contenido “interactiva.” Cómpratelo en epub (Nook) o para Kindle o directamente de la editorial enviando sólo $5.00 a nuestro cuenta Paypal: acedrexpublishing at yahoo.com.

Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes, Translated by John Ormsby

What kind of Spanish publisher would we be if we didn’t try to do our part to disseminate Don Quixote in English and Spanish in a professionally-done digital format, complete and with an interactive table of contents? No Spanish publisher at all! And so, our first featured release is Don Quixote de la Mancha by Miguel de Cervantes (and translated by the faithful-as-can-be John Ormsby).

Don Quixote de La Mancha ranks among the top 100 books of all time and is considered by many to be the first modern novel. First published in 1605 and 1615, it still astonishes with its genius and imagination. Everyone has his or her own interpretation of the mad nobleman who begins by tilting at windmills and ends up insinuating himself into every corner of the reader’s heart and mind. Don’t miss this unequalled opportunity to read this incredible book at an affordable price.

The John Ormsby translation is the “truest” English version ever produced. Ormsby neither adds nor subtracts from Cervantes’s original.

This edition includes the complete text of both parts in Ormsby’s translation, Ormsby’s informative preface, a “quick and simple” biography of the author after the main text, and a detailed interactive table of contents. Buy it in epub (Nook) or Kindle or directly from the publisher by submitting only $5.00 to our Paypal account acedrexpublishing at yahoo.com.
