In January 2016 we published the revised edition of the SRP Pocketbook series:

PALTU_Lotus_thumb               KABIR_Lotus_thumb

They look gorgeous – thanks to the beautiful photography of Greg Meyer and the tweaking by cover designer Carol White.

Originally published in 2014, the content has been updated. Both volumes now focus for the most part on love poems. A third volume in the series is expected later in 2016…

Rethinking our books

In the wake of Salt River Publishing getting recognized as a bona fide “small publishing company” by the Library of Congress, we are reorganizing our booklist – and our thinking about the SRP publications.

The Salt River Imprints

Our overall goal is to publish books that encourage and inspire. To date, we have published three groups of books, with a fourth group hopefully emerging in the new year:

  • One group of books is what we now call the Tuppany books. They are about not taking life too seriously… Whether through laughter or positive suggestions, these books help us keep going lightly.
  • The upcoming New Moon books are for children – stories with (or without) illustrations, including books by children for children.
  • And another group is what we call the Global Library books. They are for self-study:  reflective, educational, self-developmental…
  • And a fourth group is the Pocketbooks. These literally fit into a (large) pocket – and slip into a purse or a backpack. They contain mystic sayings and songpoems, each book focusing on one mystic.

Library of Congress recognition

Salt River Publishing has been recognized by the Library of Congress as a genuine “small publisher”.

We qualified for two reasons:

  • We have published books by at least four authors… Five to date, with two more authors’ books scheduled for 2016!
  • And the way our books look at Bowkers (the catalogue that is used by libraries and booksellers) conveys that Salt River books are of good quality.

What does it mean to us, practically? We get to have a Library of Congress ID number (“CPN”) on the copyright page of each book. The CPN is used by librarians – and it’s a definite sign for booksellers and librarians that Salt River has arrived!


We are pleased to announce that Elley-Ray’s new book, Butterfly Kisses, is here!

BookCoverImage BUTTERFLY KISSESCharmingly presented, this pocketbook contains 365 inspirational quotes and suggestions. They make you smile and provide unexpected directions for daily motivation.

Copies available, as usual, at the estore and at amazon. Enjoy!

Coming of Age – delightful reflections

All of us at Salt River Publishing are pleased to announce:


Coming of age

This book is delightful – as you can guess from the cover. Rosemary Rawson captures the challenges of getting older, but with a lively sense of humor and quiet wisdom. She makes you chuckle and gives you a positive perspective.

Great read for women in the 60s+ age group! Do you know any? Get it for them for Christmas… or New Year’s… or any time of year. They’ll love you for it!

In a nutshell

The opening to Saar Bachan Prose by Shiv Dayal Singh – very powerful!

This world is not lasting, nor are any of the things connected with it.

Sensible people evaluate their involvements in the world and see them for what they are – temporary. So they put the human body to good use by worshipping God through bhajan and simran.

As a result, they benefit from all the things the Creator, out of his compassion, has given us inside the body and they take the priceless jewel, the essence of the elements – their surat or soul – all the way back to its original home.
