The Weight of Silence: Invisible Children of India is officially released! Buy your copy today – I thank you on behalf of these children, and your interest in reading their amazing, inspiring stories.

As you have noticed, today has also unveiled a new design to this site, and kicks off a Media Tour for the book from June 15-30. During the tour I will be appearing on a different website or radio show each day to do an interview Q&A about the book and the topics and issues surrounding these children of India. Some of the tour stops will be online feature articles, where you can just visit the website and take a look. Other stops are local Austin appearances and radio shows, or interactive online chats and podcasts. The book release tour will conclude with a Launch Party at The Miracle Foundation on June 30 at 6 pm (click here for map).

About Shelley Seale

I'm Shelley, a journeyer and learner of the world, freelance journalist and author, yoga chick and dog lover. I pound the keyboard from home barefoot every day, and while my boss is demanding she also occasionally lets me have the early afternoon cocktail. I think not going into an office or collecting corporate paychecks are very good ideas, though not always profitable. I have written for National Geographic, USA Today, The Guardian, Texas Monthly and CNN, among others. Neither the New York Times nor Johnny Depp have answered my letters yet. I love yoga, indie movies, wine, and books, though not necessarily in that order. I believe in karma. Mean people suck. If I could have any dream job I would like to be a superhero. I have performed a catch on the flying trapeze, boarded down a live volcano and was once robbed by a monkey in Nepal. But, I don't know how to whistle. My mantra is "travel with a purpose."
