“This was my first experience working with a publishing company. When Laura was assigned to be my Author Representative, everything went smoothly and she was such a great help to me. I had many questions and concerns and she was able to answer all my questions and address all my concerns in a most professional manner! She also made the final publishing process move quickly and smoothly for me. I am writing another book and when I am finished and ready for this manuscript to be published, I will not only use Outskirts Press again, but I will request that Laura Stewart be assigned as my Author Representative. With my next book I will not be a “Newbie Author” who is unfamiliar with the publishing process and it will be hopefully easier for me and for everyone involved.”
Carolyn K. Burch was born in Indiana 70 years ago and currently resides in New Mexico with her husband and family. Her love for history and family genealogy inspired her to write her first fictional novel, Walking in Faith.
What inspired me to write Walking In Faith is a result of my love of history and family genealogy. The characters depicted in this novel are fictional but their lives are based on my factual findings. As the pages of the book unfolds, you the reader are led through the years of this family’s individual happiness and unforeseen struggles, as it is being told by the book’s title character Russell Hancock. I hope that you will find yourself being caught up in the twists and turns of this family’s life through my vivid imagination as a writer. My account of how this family lived during this time in our American Civil War history is based upon my years of family genealogy research and the history of the times. It is a story of a typical family who lived through what is referred to as Bloody Missouri during the Civil War. After the Civil War and into the mid 1900s this family’s faith continues to be constantly tested, but by walking in faith their lives take on a new meaning, and they prevail.
