Author of Where the Sky is Born and the new nonfiction title, Maya 2012 Revealed

    Who were the Maya?  What motivated them to create ethereal pyramids and intricate calendars?  Is December 21, 2012 a paradigm shift or simply resetting the clock?

    Author Jeanine Kitchel brings her knowledge as a dedicated Mayaphile to light after a thorough investigation of both sides of the spectrum. Her research gives competing views from Maya scholars and the new age 2012ologists. Maya 2012 Revealed explains how we're even able to know that an "end" date was written in Maya glyphs due to the recent breakthrough in the Maya code. The book explains the Maya calendar system, details the Maya's fixation on the night sky and the Milky Way.  It touches on Maya writing and hieroglyphics, the abandonment  and collapse of the classic sites, and ends with the prophecy found at Tortuguero in Tabasco, Mexico.

    Rather than textbook examples of what 2012 means, Kitchel shares her findings in the straightforward style her readers have come to love.

    Now available as an e-book from Kindle, iTunes, and Nook, and available in paperback edition from Amazon. Stay tuned to the author's website and blog for further updates and information.

    “Her ongoing interest in the Maya escalated when she opened a bookstore and began meeting archeologists, tour guides and locals who passed through the shop. Her early travels had taken her to the major sites--Chichen Itza, Tulum, Uxmal, Palenque--but living in Maya Mexico gave her the opportunity to explore those that were far off the beaten path. Flash forward to 2012 and the end date debate. Who better to author a book describing the end time prophecy than Jeanine? As a Journalist, she brings a realistic tone to the topic, with an emphasis on who the Maya are, breaking the code, their calendar system, Maya astronomy, 2012ology, and the collapse and the prophecy as seen by Maya elders.”

Jeanine Writes for Yahoo Voices

July 30, 2012

    “In this year of the Maya, the obsession has been all about the Maya calendar and the media frenzy over the end date of their Long Count on December 21, 2012.

    But obscured beneath this much-hyped date lies the core of Maya brilliance: their unfailing ability to accurately chronicle, assimilate and compute the calculations of eclipses, lunation and rotation cycles. Because of their fascination with the night sky they became known as naked eye astronomers.” Read on...
