April 1, 2011 - PRLog -- (Pebble Beach, CA) - Author and artist J. W. Winslow has created an e-Book based on her novel "Jasmine Dogs: Mystic Adventures in Big Sur" that pioneers the new medium as a total work of art, from the cover painting by Big Sur artist Erin Lee Gafill, to the original music written by Columbia Records artist Tom Ayres (Chuck Prophet, Persephone's Bees), to J.W.'s own performance in reading the words she wrote. This interactive e-Book includes pictures of places and items, links to websites and webcameras pertinent to the story, and text for reading.

The electronic "Jasmine Dogs: Mystic Adventures in Big Sur" is scheduled to be available for purchase in all formats on April 1, 2011 for $9.99srp, including Kindle, Adobe Digital Editions, Nook, and iPad. Arrangements are being handled through BookMasters e-Book distribution, with 73 retail outlets named internationally, including Amazon Digital Services U.S. & U.K., Barnes & Noble, and Borders. A 12-disc audio book and links to purchase the e-book download will be available at the author's website

The original soft cover book "Jasmine Dogs: Mystic Adventures in Big Sur," manufactured through Winslow's own Fresh Art publishing company, is a prototype "Green Book" composed entirely from recycled components, including cover and page stock, soy ink, and linseed binding glue. The e-book release continues the author and publisher's dedication to environmentally friendly mediums, a fact made more poignant by debuting in April, supporting the goals of Earth Day. J. W. Winslow has previously published "Sensual Indigo: Memoir of a Renaissance Woman" and a collection of poetry called "Websongs" which have been released monthly online.

Winslow is the daughter of character actor Dick Winslow ("Mutiny On The Bounty", "Jailhouse Rock", "Airport"), and she grew-up among the production crews, screenwriters, and movie stars of Hollywood. The story of "Jasmine Dogs: Mystic Adventures in Big Sur” involves insider Hollywood scandals and evolves up the California coast to the land of myth and self-discovery known as Big Sur. Any format of the book could be considered a romantic gift, as the writings tell a love story with sensual scenes reminiscent of the acclaimed, though sometimes scandalous, Big Sur resident and author Henry Miller ("Tropic of Cancer", "Sexus").

The region seems to be experiencing a resurging “Hipness” as recent entertainment heavyweights such as Dr. Dre, whose new music video opens on Highway 1 near the Bixby Bridge, and rock band Death Cab For Cutie, whose album Narrow Stairs opens with a song called "Bixby Canyon Bridge," pay homage to the legendary Big Sur coastline of California. As does J. W. Winslow's "Jasmine Dogs: Mystic Adventures in Big Sur."

"In this book," says Big Sur painter Erin Lee Gafill, "J. W. really grabbed the energy and spiritual awakening Big Sur can offer." While recent storms have closed Highway 1 in Big Sur, as happens periodically, we can take a virtual journey to this internationally renowned region anytime through the new enhanced e-book, “Jasmine Dogs: Mystic Adventures in Big Sur.”

J. W. Winslow is available for interviews and personal appearances. For review material, scheduling, and all other questions please contact Wendy Brickman at Brickman Marketing, 395 Del Monte Center #250, Monterey, CA 93940. Telephone (831) 633-4444 and email
