Introducing Tom McCrory, author of Trust Me It Works

“Outskirts Press, what can I say, but brilliant from the moment I contacted them to the moment my book was published. Nothing was too much trouble. Excellent communication at all times, and every query, every concern I had was handled with care and sensitivity as if they knew I was finding it hard to understand some of the process. The design for my book was exactly what I was looking for (they must have read my mind). The Basic package was affordable to me and gave me more than any other book publisher I looked at. The follow up and marketing options demonstrate that even when your book is published that Outskirts Press still cares about you as a customer. My book was only on Amazon for a week and already I have sold my first copy. Thank you Outskirts press for helping me achieve one of my DREAMS!”

Swearing he is Satan himself, Maddie hides the pregnancy from her parents, her town and their God. Afraid her child is a “monster,” she has no choice but to give birth. The Shadow Man comes to claim his child, and in a trance, Maddie throws the child over the railing of a county bridge, jumping over behind him, killing them both. Present Day-Amanda Sheppard begins having horrible dreams that she can’t explain, or begin to understand. With the help, support and love from her friends and family, she finds a way to reach out to the woman haunting her dreams. Maddie crosses time and the afterlife to reach Amanda, her great-niece, asking for her help. Through a long journey, both awake and asleep, Amanda begins to relive Maddie’s life and everything she had lived through. Amanda realizes that the only thing Maddie is after, is to be forgiven for killing her child. Along the way, through many twists and turns, she ends up helping her grandfather learn about the sister he never knew he had. This is a story of sadness, faith, and love. But most of all…it is about forgiveness.
