“I published my first two books with Outskirts Press. Although I had an overall great experience, an author friend talked me into trying her publishing service for Book 3, and then on my 4th book, an anthology with other authors, we used another publisher. I have to say after using several methods of publishing that Outskirts Press was the easiest and cost-effective publisher to use with a patient and informative staff that was always there for me. Although all four of my books were best sellers, the two Outskirts Press books went to #1 on Amazon for many many weeks — thanks to your marketing assistance included in my package as well as some of the affordable options for further marketing. My first book The Book of Barkley is still in the top 20 in genre at Amazon almost FOUR years after publication. I just started my fifth book and when I’m done I will be contacting you again. I would not use another publisher.”

A Memoir of Family, Redemption and Hope. It started with a piece of paper — a birth certificate, sent to the author’s parents long after her birth. There is much history in that piece of paper. For she was born to an unwed mother in the generation prior to Roe v. Wade, on a warm day in August — a small, painful beginning in which she had been an unwilling participant, yet one that would shape her destiny. She is adopted into a loving home with another child that would become her beloved brother. She finds herself pregnant; she’s a teen and a college student, abandoned at the news. The options are obvious, but there is only one decision she could make: to give her child up to a family praying for one, and walking away. Saving Grace is more than a story of adoption. It’s a deep look into family — at hope and faith and why we end our days surrounded by souls that may not bear our name or share our blood, but who are our true family.
