Lon Currey tells the story of one man’s experiences in Iran during the 1979 revolution. His descriptions of life in Iran before and during this trying time give us an insight into a world seldom seen. We learn much about the closeness of an American community in a very foreign land. Iran is a land of contrasts that become apparent as we leaf through the pages of this exciting historical biography. We get to share his family’s fears and their eventual evacuation as well as Lon’s arrests, escapes and interrogations, and final escape from Iran. The story behind the story is one of political significance which relates the political climate in America today to the climate in America in 1977 through 1980. Lon relates the downfall of American pride and influence throughout the world today directly to our loss of influence in Iran under Jimmy Carter in 1978.

Introducing Byron Kellogg, author of The Adventures of Captain Tuna

“I really love Outskirts Press, they are the paragon of integrity. Lisa is a wonder woman, I hadn’t the pleasure of speaking with her. I think the marketing tips are quite handy. The only apprehension I have are the slow responses to my e-mails. I do understand the heavy workload each of you must bare. I am forever in their debt. I will continue to use Outskirts Press for all of my future books. Thank you all for you hard work, and for giving me the honor of being published. God bless you all, my prayers are with you.”

About Byron Kellogg: I was born in Ohio. I am from a small village called Sunbury. As a child I loved to explore through the woods and play by tiny brooks and streams. As a boy I thought the whole country was Ohio, then my family and I moved to Arizona. I found it to be quite foreign. Instead of lush green fields there was nothing but dry desert. I had a great time learning about Arizona’s wild life, I used to catch lizards and ride my bike through the desert. I grew up watching classic pirate movies on television. I enjoyed when we did creative writing in school, I would write stories of adventure and excitement. My desire to write never went away. That is why I decided to write children’s stories about pirates.

World Rebirth or World War Three – New Non-Fiction Offers Grim Outlook, If Politicos Don’t Act, Could doomsday be just around the corner? One political researcher sure thinks so, and details his theory of impending disaster in his new non-fiction, World Rebirth or World War Three. Nairobi, Kenya – Political researcher and author Jimmy Jimmy contends that the world is ripe for disaster – specifically, World War III – if our leaders don’t learn to reason. He details his theory in the newly released non-fiction World Rebirth or World War Three, published by Outskirts Press. We are living in a world with a major divide: The West versus The East, and the dividing factor is the policies/governance driving each political divide. The West comprises of United States of America, the United Kingdom, France and Germany. Canada, Japan and the Scandinavian countries also pull in this direction. The East comprises mainly of Russia and China. With them comes Middle East, Eastern Europe, Africa and parts of South America. The West believes in democracy, capitalism and the tolerance that comes with it, while The East spearheads communism, a political philosophy more associated with dictatorship. {THESE FLAGS WILL PLAY PART} The current standoff between the U.S. and Russia could signal a war that is likely to irrevocably change the planet. With both superpowers having nuclear at their disposal, doomsday hovers nigh. Besides contentious issues on the political front, there are sensitive matters centering around violence against women, including female genital mutilation, acid birth and gang rape, all of which are very real in the present day – and sometimes even accepted in certain societies. RELIGION-Add into the mix the rampant misinterpretations of the Bible and Koran, issues arising in Israel and the ongoing struggle between the U.S. and Russia over nuclear dominance, and it becomes clear that the world is ripe for disaster.[US, CHINA, RUSSIA] Muslims and Ishmael son of Abraham as well as Chinese, Indians and Amos who made the golden calf Terrorism- military might is 10/1 to crash extremism but Hollywood can. In the book, you find two or three script that can make movies that will counter what madrasa where falsehood has turned impressionable mind of young and vulnerable Muslims into suicide bombers (a blockbuster movie is about to be released based on the book). Clinging to God of Israel-questions, we all avoid Ancient England- rich history we tend to ignore. THE LAST IMPERIAL POWER-US/ CHINA/RUSSIA? Everyone from students to world leaders will find something of value in the pages of World Rebirth or World War Three.

Introducing Clark Bunch, author of God is Near

“I expected the process to be more difficult than it was, even after reading the web site and other testimonials. In my mind, my situation and issues were unique and it would be difficult to make others understand what I needed and wanted. Outskirts Press seems to publish new books every day, many written by first time authors. Whether an author were to say “Here is my manuscript, please do everything else for me” or have very specific ideas for the finished product, Outskirts can handle it. I have been extremely satisfied and have blogged about the self-publishing experience. I have already recommended Outskirts to others.”

Clark Bunch is a Baptist preacher with a passion for writing and teaching. He and his wife Teresa have one daughter, Johannah. This is Clark’s first book, but you can read more and join the conversation at his blog The Master’s Table. http://themasterstable.wordpress.com


Product description…

The Bible tells one story. It’s about how a Holy God deals with a sinful, fallen and broken people. At the center of that story is Jesus. Fellowship was broken in the Garden of Eden but God didn’t really go anywhere. The story of “God with us” doesn’t begin and end in the Gospels. GOD IS NEAR is his promise to his people, and it’s found in every book of the Bible. The message of scripture isn’t some shattered thing with pieces that don’t fit together. We can find grace and mercy in the Old Testament and judgment in the New. God is at work as Father, Son and Holy Spirit throughout. Sometimes we need to step back and look at the big picture.

Introducing Marian Ely, author of Serenity Villa

“My Author Representative was timely and very helpful in this process. She spotted things I had missed and smoothed the way toward publication. Thank you once again for a good experience publishing with Outskirts Press!”

Marian Ely lives a retired life at Samaritan Village in Corvallis, Oregon. “I am happily retired, although I must admit it took awhile for me to adjust after many years in a busy work life. I spend my days writing and also learning how to relax. The writing is far easier for me than the relaxing. I do well if my day starts with the crossword puzzles in the newspapers and a cup of really good coffee. Somewhere in the midst of both activities I might discover who I really am some day.”


Product description…

Serenity Villa is a book that I hope will captivate you, especially if you are in a retirement community already. I live in one about the size of Serenity Villa. Some of the ideas came to me soon after I moved in. None of the characters in the book are like the people in my community, however there are bits and pieces from people I have known throughout my life. Getting older can be a challenge for many and a delight for others. You will see both examples in the stories here. You will laugh and you might even feel anger or sadness. All of these are part of life here.
