"The Quest of Heart" Book Release
An illustrated, allegorical fiction about finding wholeness. By Kristi L. Stout
San Diego (I-Newswire) August 30, 2013 - Local author Kristi L. Stout has written and illustrated a 72-page allegorical fiction titled "The Quest of Heart."

Though the book's message is equally applicable to children and adults, it is classified as a young-reader children's book. The book trailer is available for viewing now at YouTube.
"How far would you go to find the other half of your heart?" asks Stout. This question guides the story's theme: an exploration of what it means to become whole as one progresses through life. In a busy age that constantly barrages us with technology and social media, navigating the terrain of one's inner world can be perplexing. Stout transforms a wealth of illuminating metaphorical concepts via colorful imagery and magical characters on a journey through a region called Surrality™.
Halfway between the real and surreal lies a world that bridges what's tangible to what's intangible. The main character in "The Quest of Heart" is Satori, a young girl on a treacherous path to becoming a woman. Along the way Satori searches for the other half of her heart -appearing as a fuzzy pet that perches near Satori's neck, speaking to her like a conscience. Meanwhile, Satori encounters such sinister monsters as Reality (which bites), and finds herself in worlds devoid of color.
"The Quest of Heart is a delicate allegorical journey along the nexus of reality and imagination, passion and stagnation, boundless joy and suffocation, companionship and love. I was taken by both its simplicity and depth. My 13-year-old daughter and I were amazed with the consistency and flow between the events and characters, and the intensely hued illustrations that Kristi creates. Far more layers of meaning to peel back than pages to read!" ~ Customer on Amazon

About The Angel Publishing, LLC
Not long ago an artist drew a portrait of an angel sitting in the rain in a gutter. The artist then More..asked herself, why is this creature of heaven so utterly downtrodden?
He was meant to represent the state of life and the price of wisdom. He was meant to represent a publishing house that specializes in writing literature about reality. Not a pretty, painted over, happily-ever-after-reality. But a reality that is even more gorgeous and full of the things that make life decadent. A beauty so big it can hold sadness and tragedy and loss. And in all this kind of beauty, something bigger and more esoteric unfolds, more visceral and poetic and magical than what most people feign to be.
The Angel's books and stories strive to pique your curiosity. Each story is a little beautiful. A little sad. A little magical. A little mundane. A little unusual. And a lot interesting. And all of it celebrates what it means to be alive. Kind of like the angel sitting in the gutter.Less..
