Book description…

Every night, by the light of the moon, Pack Rat whispers to the glittering stars, “Star bright, star light, first star I see tonight, wish I may, wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight. I wish I might find a treasure tonight!” When Pack Rat’s wish comes true and he finds a glittering, gorgeous star, he is ecstatic and takes it back to his desert palace. But oh no, Mrs. Binder is missing one earring—a very special glittering gold star, a gift from her husband. Cat helps in the search and then recruits the desert birds. “Meow, meow, have you seen a glittering star?” Roadrunner races here and there spreading the word. The doves coo and call a crowd. Cactus Wren twitters. Gila Woodpecker tat-a-tat-tats and knocks on Owl’s door. Red-Tailed Hawk squawks, “I know the rat who stole the star. Pack Rat dragged it to his nest, and now he’s taking his daily beauty rest.” Now Cat must concoct the purrfect plan, with the help of his desert backyard critters, to retrieve the glittering gold star.

He intends to bring the U.S., the world’s epicenter of capitalism and finance, to its knees in a horrendous attack.
If that isn’t enough, Vassily Krasnoff, a Russian believed fatally wounded in the Alaskan wilderness by McClure’s rifle shot, didn’t die as intelligence indicated. Krasnoff has emerged from a coma, and now he wants revenge for the death of his brother, Leonide. Someone Dave McClure loves dearly must die—in the most gruesome fashion imaginable—if McClure doesn’t find and kill Krasnoff first.

Introducing Richard A. Boysen, author of Mergers & Acquisitions Playbook

“Mergers & Acquisitions Playbook is my second published book. I published my first titled “Passing Through My Time as Part of the Boysen Family” in 2013 using a different firm. Outskirts Press’ process is clearly set forth and easy to follow. They have a list of add on services which serves to simplify the process. Prices for the add on services reflect their view of its value. While I chose few of these services, I would have chosen some if this was my first rodeo.
If and when I choose to publish another book I will select Outskirts Press.”

“Outskirts Press delivers. Everything was upfront with no surprises and professionally implemented each step of the way. I’m thrilled with the end product and overjoyed that with never having attempted self-publishing before, I ended up choosing an outstanding company, one which I will wholeheartedly recommend to others. What I can’t express profoundly enough is my appreciation for every single person who I encountered on this journey. The encouragement that I received from this publishing team was not expected, but was so kind. There is no price tag that you can put on that but they certainly represent the best part of Outskirts Press. Thank you for being a reputable and safe place for authors to come.

Book description…

No matter how long you’ve been a Christian, there are times in life that will kick dust into your faith lungs. Whether it’s a deeply painful event or just a slow fade into weariness, we long to know in tangible ways that God is near, that He is speaking to us and that though we are struggling to understand why nothing in our circumstance seems to indicate that we are being held in the palm of His hand, He breaks through with His unfailing love to assure us that He is there.

Judy Eicheldinger takes you on the journey of her traumatic health emergency, weaving together episodes of ordinary past events that brought Spirit-filled messages in unforeseen ways, awakening her heart to God’s presence. But even those times would not compare to the magnitude of what was revealed to her during the crisis.

It begins with a confession of a much too busy calendar that has left her exhausted. She finds herself running circles as a mother and dance studio director while also experiencing a growing depression, grief and asthmatic faith. She ignores most of this, just as she ignores the rising on-again-off-again pain in her abdomen. When she finally collapses from the overwhelming, intense pain it becomes a health emergency and a race to find out what is wrong.

She creatively guides you through her story by prompting you to see God in your own. Themes of beauty, freedom from selfishness, forgiveness, miracles, overcoming fear, staying focused, deep healing, mystery, oneness with Christ, perseverance and eternal perspective will encourage you to embrace how your own unique circumstances are sacred and are positioned to bring transformational blessing to others. And though one can never know the full measure of what God is doing or why He allows certain things to happen, this book will remind you that He does bestow the gift of His Spirit; to open our eyes, to heighten our hearing as He speaks
through everything that surrounds us, so that we may know how infinitely, deeply He loves each of us.

This is written with some light humor but always with a heart of compassion for women who have spent too many days in pain, who feel isolated in their griefs, or who just feel like there’s only a flicker of vitality left in their faith. These chapters pull back a curtain of despair and let hope pour through the window to the soul. Find renewed joy, a joy that will set your faith dancing again, and be inspired to rise up and share your own powerful story.

Book description…

Big Daddy Flower owned a good chunk of land in a small place in Texas. Since his last name was Flower, his four daughters were named for a flower. He didn’t want to name his son after a flower, so he called his son, Thorn. His four daughters were not delicate little flowers he thought they would be. They were all older now and helped run the ranch. They also had many talents and could ride, rope, shoot, and beat up a bad man, if needed. Life was going well until someone decided they would kidnap one of Big Daddy Flower’s daughters. He took his family with him to find her, making them look more like a gang of outlaws that resembled an old timey villain, than a normal family. After searching for hours, she still wasn’t found, so they rested before going back out the next morning. A ransom note arrived saying they had a bomb, and they needed to give in to his command, or else. That’s when it became complicated. Could they really find her before the bomb exploded?

Introducing Lauren Radke, author of Will You Be My Friend?

“This was my second book with Outskirts Press and all went smoothly. I needed more guidance than the first time and my Author Representative couldn’t have been more helpful. Any questions were answered promptly. I appreciate everything and will definitely be back to publish my next book.”

Artist Lauren Radke brings Frog and his friends to share their message “always be a good friend”. The simple, colorfully illustrated book is the second in a series of kindness, friendship and acceptance. Having raised four boys and regularly surrounded by preschool grandchildren, she knows we all need reminders.

Book description…

Artist Lauren Radke’s children’s book Will You Be My Friend? introduces Frog and his friends, colorful characters she has enjoyed creating for years. The endearing characters share their message of friendship, and the many different aspects of being friends with someone. Frog learns his friends might not look anything like him and that is okay. He also learns that it is alright to have just one or two special friends as not everyone has a large circle of friends. Examples of being a good friend are shared from listening and sharing, to helping and hugging. The book concludes with suggesting being a friend to others and sharing your happiness of having someone as a friend. All friendships are different from the next one, and it is important for children to realize this.

Introducing Rev. Dr. Oscar P. Grant, author of Little Black Alice of Popadubop: The Journey of Love

“The knowledge, expertise, and patience with my Author Representative can only be described as phenomenal. I was blessed to work with an Outskirts Representative who really knew the publishing business and more importantly, her joy and fun guiding my book through the publishing process really alleviated any stress.  From the introductory call to the book printing, this has been an exceptional experience all around. I wouldn’t change a thing. There may be publishing houses that claim that it’s better to go to them, but my business goes to Outskirts Press, because they are the BEST!”

Rev. Dr. Oscar Paul Grant, Jr. has led a thousand lives – playwright, disc jockey, public speaker, government consultant, trainer, mediator, musician, counselor, psychologist, organizational developer, an expert in gun violence prevention, gang meditation, and helping troubled youth find long-term employment. However, the role that has become most prominent in his life is that of Minister. From his earliest days as a street hustler on the South Side of Chicago (hustling stage plays, that is), he has had a love and a longing for the Lord. His love of Jesus Christ goes back to his Catholic roots planted by his mother Delores. Although he heard the call to ministry early in life, he ignored it many times, running instead to drinking alcohol and abusing chemical substances, even in the midst of a brilliant, multi-faceted career characterized mainly by his extraordinary natural ability to communicate via the written and spoken word. Whether counseling at-risk youth or crafting stories for the stage, Grant is, at his core, a messenger of good news and goodwill. Eventually, after expanding his spiritual interests and awareness to include metaphysical studies and religious science, he answered the call to ministry, receiving bachelor’s and master’s degrees and a Ph.D. in Pastoral Counseling Psychology and, more recently, a Ph.D. in Philosophy. Despite his extensive pedigree in metaphysical and religious science, he clings to his Christian roots, deftly blending threads from each to weave powerful, inspired messages and sermons ministering to hundreds of thousands. It is in his role of messenger sent by God that he has written the book Remind Them Who I Am. It is a public revelation of a private mandate he has received from on High. This time, instead of ignoring the call, he has received it and is delivering the message to all who believe. Little Black Alice of Popadubop has its roots in African American at-risk youth from the south and west sides of Chicago. Toured throughout the states of Illinois and Indiana for over three years, the story of Little Black Alice was written to be a journey of self-discovery for not only little black girls but for all children. The Off-Off-Broadway production in New York sold out after the first performance. Why? – because of its message of hope. Please enjoy and check out more of the story on LITTLEBLACKALICE.COM NAMASTE
