Austin, Texas, March 31, 2011 — Author, Simel Bey releases his
first children’s book, Children’s Initiatic Tales: Stories from the
Immortal Light. This fifty-seven page soft-cover features six original
tales that stem from traditions of myth, spiritual folklore, and
ancient fairy tales. These true, experiential tales of multidimensional
nature take readers through emotional themes such as abuse, pain, and
child slavery towards divine experiences of redemption and grace.
“The book is written for readers who are passionate about finding themselves,
feeling secure and confident, working through trauma and pain, and those who have
serious questions about spirituality,” says Bey. “The stories found in the book are
based upon real people and experiences I have encountered. I hope it will encourage
readers who have experienced pain and trauma with possibilities of how to integrate
hope into their lives.”
“As one absorbs the mystery of each story, one is profoundly moved by the depth of
Bey’s passion and love for the medium,” says Dr. Mitchell Gibson, MD, and
best-selling author of Your Immortal Body of Light, The Miracle Prayer, and Signs of
Mental Illness. “Bey’s use of multicultural themes and prose is uplifting and
joyous. The genre of magical story has found a brilliant new champion in Simel Bey.”
Bey’s reflective and encouraging language engages readers aged nine through forty
with his loving, humorous, magical, yet realistic storytelling. The book holds six
illustrations, provided by Holly Ganzalez, Ahmir Mark Lyles and Carnegie Mims.
Ahmir M. Lyles, illustrator of Prince Ahmir and The Amethyst Dragon states “I hope
the illustration inspires the reader to be creative. Fantasy, mythology, and even
whimsical thinking are very good exercises of creative thought, so I hope that the
reader gets the message to always stretch his or her mind when creating art–to
include self and to think beyond what’s already been done–what’s already there to be
seen or experienced.”
Children’s Initiatic Tales: Stories from The Immortal Light, is a collection of
timeless tales that will educate reading youth with universal themes and explore
magical concepts that are both uplifting and miraculous. The stories encourage
readers to open their minds, persevere through times of hardship and search for hope
in various ways.
