“The Peephole Effect” Hits #1 in Kindle Store

Raleigh, NC – April 28, 2017:  The recently released second book from New Thought author Maryann Patalano, The Peephole Effect: Perception is Everything, today achieved #1 status in Amazon’s Kindle Store in the New Thought category. This self-published title explores and explains the complex connection between human perception and consciousness. The author takes an in-depth look at how the subconscious rules our experience, often in dramatic ways that result in unwanted circumstances repeating in our lives. The book focuses on utilizing the practical application of New Thought principles to alter the experiences of our lives in dramatic, positive and lasting ways. The Peephole Effect: Perception is Everything invites the reader to get off the merry-go-round of an imprisoned life, boldly open their consciousness to infinite potential, and live a life of their choosing.

“As a relative newcomer to the world of publishing, I’m delighted to learn that readers are finding their way to my work,” Patalano said.  “My sole objective is to help others find peace-of-mind, happiness and clarity through healthy, spiritual practices.”

The book is available in both Kindle and paperback formats through Amazon: The Peephole Effect.
