Pre-Publication Sale Extended of I Heard it on Oprah…Wisdom & Inspiration a Relief Project

Nov. 19, 2006 – BelleCora Press has extended the pre-publication sale of I Heard it on Oprah…Wisdom & Inspiration for Living. A twenty percent discount off the cover price is extended from late November to December 20, 2006. All proceeds for sales of the book are earmarked in 2006-2007 by the designer and publisher for Gulf Coast Hurricane Relief, with primary emphasis on housing.

Scheduled for release November 30, the spiral bound volume was designed with multiple uses in mind, that is, as an appointment book, a journal, a sketch book, a travel diary or a keepsake. Editor and designer, Martie LaCasse, purposefully created an appealing format that allows the book to be what the user wishes, blank pages are interspersed with carefully selected quotations inspired by the host and guests of the popular Oprah Winfrey Show.

“After the tsunami in 2004 and the hurricanes along the Gulf of Mexico in 2005, I wanted to design a product that could create funds for humanitarian relief. The concept of I Heard it on Oprah came to me in the middle of the night, as such a completely developed idea and design that I had to take it seriously.” LaCasse has stated that she wanted to produce a collection of quotes from the show that honored the integrity of the show, its host and guests. “The show has been meaningful to many people worldwide.” Read more about LaCasse’s inspiration for the project on her blog at www.writemex.blogspot.com or on the publisher’s website.

BelleCora Press states that the spiral binding allows the book to be opened flat on a table or desk to any page, ideal for display or use as a guest book or a book you get a little something from as you move about home or office. The cover and page stock are durable. It is a volume that will last for years, or that will endure rough treatment as a sketch book or travel journal. I Heard it on Oprah…Wisdom & Inspiration for Living is a gift that can enhance the lives of those who receive it and a book that is not bound by the calendar or a particular use. More information on the design and sample pages and covers can be seen on the publisher’s website, www.BelleCora.com.

Profits through 2007 will be assigned to organizations already providing relief to Gulf Coast Hurricane victims. Profits from sales of this project will always go to humanitarian relief. This book is not a product of the Oprah Winfrey show or of Harpo, Inc. or of any affiliate entity.
