Book description…

A legacy to future generations, Mediocrity in America reminds readers about the fragility of freedom. “I’ve been granted the dispensation to communicate with selected humans at will. And so, I shall draw upon my talent to warn my two loyal friends against the venomous scourge of mediocrity-the dark Trojan horse breaching our country’s soul…” In Mediocrity in America, Titan the St. Bernard presents a wealth of information regarding the effects of widespread mediocrity-offering much to consider if America is to remain one of the greatest nations on Earth. Titan weighs in on envy (as well as the other deadly sins), art and culture, and vulgarity, and offers his canine point of view on what he considers the scourge of our nation: Indifferent beings strolling through the walks of life without teaching and without learning. “The catastrophe occurs when boring citizens such as these grow to immeasurable numbers and become the majority-perfect timing for a dogmatic, narrow-minded, inflexible group to fill the vacuum and establish an encrusted, paralyzed society that will disintegrate as mediocrity becomes its bedrock.” This unique and thoughtful narrative is as spot-on as it is entertaining. And Titan-a true doggy guru-is a benevolent narrator, making a compelling case against the dangers of mediocrity in America.

Introducing Brooke Lewis, author of Ms. Vampy’s Teen Tawk: There’s A Lotta Power In Ya Choices

“As an actress and life coach in Hollywood, I love when situations present themselves where I can authentically share that I am absolutely thrilled. I had some frustrations with the old Outskirts’ publishing system and process while publishing my first book. I chose to return, due to the support of Tina and Gwen and could not have had a better and more efficient experience my second time around! The best part was that I was able to work directly with one producer, Gwen, throughout the entire process! Communication and clarity improved 100%! I realize we are living in a cyber world, but having Gwen to email with, made all the difference in the process. We were able to skip many of the technical problems I had the first book experience. Thank you to Outskirts Press for making me a very happy author.”

Book description…

Stories from Ms. Vampy to empower teen girls to make powerful choices! I am a Vampiress from Brooklyn with a mission! Do you know how many teen girls struggle with the courage to make the right choices and find their own voice? My mission is to empower teen girls to be courageous, so they can make the right choices and find their own voice. I may be over 100 years old now, but, remember, Vampires never grow up! I still feel like a teenager at heart and I still struggle with the same issues and challenges I did 85 years ago. I’ve also been through over 100 years of challenges and experiences, so I think that qualifies me as a freakin’ “expert,” don’t you? I mean, there ain’t nothin’ I haven’t seen or heard, so I am inspired to share both my mistakes and successes with you. I will also tell ya that some of my biggest successes and lessons have come from making mistakes and the wrong choices. You just gotta pick yourself up, start over and make different choices the next time. At any time, you have the power to create a “do-ova” and feel differently, think differently, dress differently and be different. I, and this book, are here to support you, guide you and honor you in areas where you are feeling stuck, confused, fearful, insecure or simply needing help. I may have only tawked to them a few times, but I know your role models like Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift would also tell you to “Be You…And, Be Fearless” and in Ms. Vampy words, “VAMP IT OUT!”
