Paul H. Magid - Lifting the Wheel of Karma - Giveaway & Author Interview

My thanks to Paul H. Magid for stopping by Tribute Books Mama for an author interview during the blog tour for his book, Lifting the Wheel of Karma.


Leave a comment with your email address to win a FREE paperback of Lifting the Wheel of Karma. There will be 3 winners. Giveaway ends 1/31/12.

1. How does your book appeal to women?
I have found that women find appealing the deeply emotional component to my novel. It is a story of finding a way to heal by overcoming tragedy and extreme adversity, with the support and love of his family. It is also a tale of spiritual discovery and insight on the wings of forgiveness and redemption.

2. How does your book appeal to men?
Men, it would seem by nature, are not as attuned to emotional elements, but rather in my novel's case, to the universal journey of understanding and enlightenment.

3. How does your book appeal to teenagers and those in their 20s?
The spiritual journey is a universal experience, and I believe this applies to people of all ages, including teenagers and those in their 20s.

4. How does your book appeal to those who are middle aged?
Everyone questions the path they are on in this life, and those who are middle aged know they are halfway through the journey of life, which naturally and instinctively leads to trying to figure out the journey.

5. How does your book appeal to the elderly?
The elderly have had by far the most experience in pursuing meaning in life and the spiritual questions and answers that are posed in my novel may very well resonate strongly with them.

6. In your mind, who is the ideal reader of your book?
The ideal reader for my novel is everyone who is curious about the journey, purpose, and meaning of life. Everyone who enjoys an extraordinary story will find a great connection to my novel.

A Profound Spiritual Journey of Extraordinary Healing and Redemption - a modern tale that harkens back to the myths of antiquity. It takes you on a remarkable journey, while exploring the themes of healing, redemption, forgiveness, sacrifice, and ultimately...peace within.

Joseph Connell is a gifted high school athlete from Montana, loved deeply by his family, yet tormented by nightmarish visions he can neither explain nor escape.

He believes the answer to what threatens to crush him can be found in the knowledge possessed by a mystical old wise man, who lives deep within the remote Himalayas of India.

If Joseph is ever to find the peace he so desperately seeks, he must get this wise old man to reveal what he truly knows, but that will not be easy…for this sage knows far more than he admits.

About the Author
Paul H. Magid

Paul H. Magid started writing his debut novel, LIFTING THE WHEEL OF KARMA, twenty-five years ago while still in high school. It took him so long to complete because he tried repeatedly to abandon it, but the work refused to be forsaken. Eventually he realized that sharing this story with the world was, in fact, his Dharma.

Along the way he has worked as a Wall Street financial analyst, a waiter (not a very good one), a Hollywood Agent Trainee, a real estate developer, a summer day camp director, an award winning screenwriter, and independent filmmaker—including his autobiographical film, A LIFE UNFINISHED, which screened in The Hamptons International Film Festival.
