New Life

New Life

In our part of the world here at the very foot of Africa, spring has sprung, with new life everywhere. The spring flowers are in bloom and the temperatures are gradually getting warmer.

There is new life for Kima Global books as well. The migration of our titles is going well with the first ten titles now live. More will be added every week.

We invite you to visit https://www.epublishify.com/kimabooks to check out what we are doing to give you, as customer, even better service.

We are open to considering your manuscript for publication under the Kima Global imprint. We will give you a fair and considered assessment. Moreover, we promise to be kind!

Big changes at Kima Books

Big changes ahead

Nadine and I have some big announcements to make.

As usual there is bad news and good news. Let’s start with the worst first and get better from there.

Back in May of this year the professional typesetting and design program that I have been using for years gave up the ghost and despite all efforts by our technical people, could not be fixed. I do have the latest Indesign program which most typesetters use today, but it would be a steep learning curve for me to learn it, which I am not quite up to and not in the mood for. I have searched for teachers but without success. They are mostly focused on image design and know nothing about typesetting.

Then, in the first week of July this year Nadine and I were walking on the cat walk in Fish Hoek without rain gear when we got caught in an icy torrential downpour and were far from our car. I was frozen to the bone, but eventually we got home and warmed up. Shortly after that I became ill with what I thought was the flu and struggled for a few days.

However, I took two nasty falls, landing on my coccyx both times. Nadine dragged me back to bed both times. Shortly thereafter Nadine found me unconscious, called the paramedics who checked me out and found that my oxygen level was down to 74%. (death occurs at 72%). They summoned an ambulance and took me to our local False Bay Hospital. It was pneumonia, but they labeled it Covid.

To cut a long story short, I ended up spending 10 days in three different hospitals. The doctors definitely saved my life, but the conditions in the hospitals are appalling. Nadine rescued me from there by demanding that I be discharged which the doctors reluctantly agreed to. I came out so weak that I was unable to stand unaided and with bedsores. I have been recuperating under the wonderful care of Nadine and our local homeopathic doctor and now am able to spend a couple of hours a day in the office.

As a result of all this we have decided to make some big changes as to how we operate so as to reduce the work load. Circumstances demand it.

No more new physical books

  • We will no longer be accepting physical books for publication.
  • We are just beginning to have discussions with a European publisher who is keen to have Kima Global’s book list on their platform. If we are successful it will mean an extended life our book list. We will also be able to take on new titles. We see this as a very positive development.

List to be trimmed

  • We will be trimming down our listings for physical books on the international book shops catalog during the course of the next few months. Those books which have not sold a single copy in the previous six months will be cancelled from the list. Every listing costs us a catalogue fee so we cannot continue to pay this if we have no sales.  Local South African authors may still order copies from us.
  • If you have a new manuscript to offer we will gladly guide you through the self-publishing process. There will be no charge for our existing authors.

e-Books to continue

  • We will not be cancelling any e-book currently platformed.
  • We will continue to publish new e-books as and when the opportunity arises.

New web site

Our current web site does attract traffic, but it is not cell phone friendly.

  • We are going to be building a new site during the course of the next couple of months using a modern site builder and cart.
  • All the physical books currently active globally will be listed as well as all the e-books.
  • We are no longer distributing for overseas publishers, so we will be simplifying both the appearance and the way it works. There will no longer be a need to choose your country and currency. One list, one currency (probably USD since most of our sales are there.)

I will be posting another blog when it is live.

As I wrote, I do hope that you see these developments as an effort both to survive by cutting unrewarding expenses and to thrive by giving Kima Global a new face on the internet

May I close by wishing you all good health and sanity in these crazy and challenging times. We are still here to serve you, but now in a changed capacity.

A Time of Joy?

Traditionally this is the Season of Joy, and in this tradition I would like to share a passage from our book Awakening to Angels by Belinda Bras-Nel.

“Joy is almost more of a Heavenly term than an Earthly one, exactly because it contains a snippet of Heaven, or perhaps, too, because the belief in joy has almost died out at an Earthly level.
“We understand that everyone may comprehend the essence of joy in a different way, and because it contains a bit of Heaven, the concept often flies over the head of souls who are too closely bound to Earth. Yet joy is within everybody’s reach, and it really depends on whether you pray for and believe it for yourself or not.
“Joy is much like the concept of God and love. It is there to be embraced and understood, or simply to be enjoyed by anyone who allows himself to be swept away by it.
“A good time to invite joy into your life is when you feel tired and discouraged. A good way to invite joy is to pray for it. Ask God and your angels to help you become receptive to it once again. Ask regularly, even daily, for joy to fill your life.
“Some of you have convinced yourselves that you no longer know what joy feels like. This is the perfect time to ask to experience joy in your life again, and to notice its presence when it does appear.
“Joy brings the emotion of feeling carefree when souls are in a space of trust and realise that they are being cared for by Spirit. In this space, the negative scales on the eyes are exchanged for a clear view of the blessings they are surrounded by.
Joy, therefore, isn’t something you have to work hard at or something you have to prepare for yourselves and for others. Joy is a belief and a lifestyle cultivated by a decision to experience and notice it in your life every day.”

The Reality Shifters Biblet

In today’s world it is all (or nearly all) about the marketing of books because millions of books and e-books are published annually, so we always look for an edge to get our amazing books noticed in a torrentially flooded market.

A new tool to help us has been developed which we think will make a huge difference. It is a specially developed Literary Widget (known as a Biblet) which will be widely distributed to book buyers in book stores around the world and through social media. We invite you to explore and welcome your feedback and comments.

The Biblet for The Reality Shifters includes a video book trailer, and an audio interview with the author Nadine May.  Here is the link for your enjoyment.

We will be inviting current and future authors to participate in this program. There will be a cost of approximately $100.00 to participate, but we think that this will be well worth it. What do you think?

A Time for Review

It has now been more than 25 years since Kima Global Publishers first opened its doors in 1992 with the publication of Rising out of Chaos – The New Heaven and the New Earth by Simon Peter Fuller. We were friends then and still are today. Simon Peter is living in active retirement in Sri Lanka and Nadine and I are still in Cape Town, now in the Deep South.

Rising out of Chaos was a book well ahead of its time, but is now totally relevant to today’s chaotic world. The World is even more chaotic, but the arrival of the New Earth is ever more likely. We are currently offering the e-book edition free (actually nearly free since we cannot do a transaction with no value. PayPal will not allow this).

In celebration of our 25 years we have pleasure in announcing the launch of our new Showroom web site, which features all our best sellers over the years. We would welcome your visit there and your comments.

You can also find out why we do what we do, our mission, and some background as to what we look for in a new publication, so that you as a potential new author know what to expect from us.

Mastery in 2018

I think we can all agree that 2017 has been an eventful year. Certainly The Times they are a’changing.

We can all (those of us that are still here) look back and say that we have survived the challenges. They have gifted us adapability and self-reliance. We too shall overcome. I know that these two songs date from more than 50 years ago, but they had a pivotal influence on my life and that of an entire generation.

What will 2018 bring us? I suppose that it is anybody’s guess, but since it is an Eleven year it will be a year of mastery. The challenges of our individual pasts are certain to lead to mastery of our situation in 2018. It will be a year of revelation and exposure to Truth.

Our exciting new title Gaia Luminous by Kiara Windrider is an exciting overview of where we and the Earth are placed at this time and an intriguing look at what the future may bring. See here to look inside the book. We are particularly honored to have been chosen to publish this book because of the respected profile of the author and the good work it will undoubtedly do in giving insight to the readers into the future of our beloved planet and our role in its future. This alone gives personal peace and confidence… and cheers to that!

We will be featuring extracts from it in future blogs, perhaps as early as next week if we get requests.

Getting past our pain

Life is an Illusion and what is Real exists Beyond the Veil of this Illusion. The sensations of comfort and discomfort are the distinguishing features that give us a sense of Real. These features also guide the negative or positive calibre of all our experiences.
There are many factors which have an enormous effect on how we view our ‘realities’ and process all our challenges and the attitudes we develop as a result. In addition, the density of this realm is by its nature, very limiting and has skewed our ability to view a bigger scheme at work here. All of this is compounded by the fact that as we are the subject of our own experiences, an understanding of the invisible principles at work in our realities and within ourselves are even further obscured.
The physical world is the only reality that is tangible for us which is why it is so difficult to ‘see’ a reality beyond this one. The veil is a fascinating part of our existence on this planet because as it overshadows the Truth of what is Real, a mystery is created. The main principle behind this mystery is that as the True Nature of our Spiritual Identity is concealed, the dichotomy between what is real and the illusion has limited and narrowed our perception of what is true, authentic and important.

This is a brief extract from our new title The Pain Game Rules by Beverley Yolande

25 years old next month!

I can hardly believe it, but Kima Global will turn 25 next month and our first title Rising out of Chaos – The New Heaven and the New Earth is still in print on Amazon. The author Simon Peter Fuller who has now retired to Sri Lanka is currently writing a new edition to be published as an e-book.

In honour of the occasion we are offering a free gift of a .pdf download of this seminal work, very much ahead of its time when first published , but now absolutely relevant to today’s world.  This will be valid until the end of August 2017. Click here to get it!

We are still offering South Africans a range of titles at bargain prices. There are too many to list here, but please visit our web site to explore what is on offer.
