Metaphysical Odyssey into the Mexican Revolution
Francisco I. Madero and His Secret Book, Spiritist Manual

"In my fifteen years of researching the life of President Francisco I. Madero, I have never read a more complete book as the one just written by C.M. Mayo. It will simply surprise any reader. The research is impeccable and the narrative well-rounded."
Manuel Guerra de Luna,
author of Los Madero: La Saga Liberal

"C.M. Mayo opened this incredible window into the metaphysical side of the Mexican Revolution that might otherwise have beaen forgotten."
Heribert von Feilitzsch,
author of In Plain Sight: Felix Sommerfeld, Spymaster in Mexico

"Mayo... provides not only an English translation of Madero's Spiritist Manual, but also a lively intoduction... The author argues effectively that Madero's manual is essential to understanding his revolutionary zeal."
Kirkus Reviews

"Kudos to Mayo for introducing us to both the man and his message."
San Francisco Book Review

"C.M. Mayo offers another dazzling work in her own fluid, poetic and highly visual prose. Her translation of the Spiritist Manual of Don Francisco Madero (intellectual, revolutionary, mystic and President of Mexico until his assassination in 1913,) makes this work available for the first time in 100 years... Those who are familiar with the ideas of New Thought, Swedenborg, metaphysical churches, the Bhagavad Gita, White Brotherhood, reincarnation or the Theosophists will find themselves on familiar ground, but the Manual, laid out in a format of Q & A, makes the Mysteries so simple that even readers with no spiritualist background will find themselves drawn in. By the time I finished I wished for a Don Francisco Madero to guide us today, a politican who is also a mystic and intellect.
Sophy Burnham,
author of A Book of Angels and The President's Angel

So you have something to say! There are many eager ears out there, in cars, on trains and planes, in waiting rooms, in kitchens, perhaps washing dishes… Audio podcasts, on-line digital files, not only serve as an important promotional tool for writers, but they can be storytelling vehicles in themselves, whether as stand-alone works or complements to text, and as such, a powerful way to reach new audiences.

Based on award-winning writer and avid podcaster C.M. Mayo's one day workshop at the Writer's Center,
this ebook provides an introduction and overview of podcasting for writers, from basic concepts to nuts-and-bolts tips.

In 10 "easy peasy" steps
(along with some "fancy schmancy" alternatives for those so inclined). Mayo shows you
how to generate and publish your unique podcast — and yes, get it onto iTunes.
