“My Author Representative was wonderful, especially patient with all my questions!”

Cynthia A. Christman discovered Spiritualism shortly before her husband passed in 2003.

We Can Talk with Our Loved Ones in Heaven! In her first message to me from her new world, my twin sister Terri described her transformation to spirit. “There was a swirl of energy surrounding me; my energy became encompassed and encased into that energy. It was a breath of the fresh air I had longed for, for so long. A weary soul was able to return home fulfilled.” We were all born with the innate ability to see and hear angels and the spirits of our deceased loved ones. We played with them. We talked with them. We were friends with them. Unfortunately, for most of us, the adults in our life didn’t remember their childhood friends. They told us that these beings were imaginary because they could no longer see or hear them. When we stopped talking to them, our friends went away. They were still around us; we just could not see or hear them anymore. And because we could not see or hear them, we accepted the mistaken belief that we need to see or hear something for it to exist. In Connect with Heaven: Talk to Angels, Contact Spirit, Spiritual Gifts, you will find methods to re-discover your lost gifts of communicating with angels and the deceased, along with dozens of riveting, first-hand accounts of spiritual experiences. What would you ask a loved one in Heaven? What would they tell you about their new world?

Introducing Bhinda Rajwans, author of MAN UP: Not because you have to but because you want to…

“The outstanding Outskirts Press team help me fulfill my life dream of publishing a very professional and fantastic book! I am very happy with the outcome of my book and the services I received. Thank you!”

Bhinda Rajwans was raised in Montreal, Canada in the 1980s-1990s, which gave him an exceptional background of European, American, and multi-cultural influences, combined with role models of an adult generation who still knew how to guide and teach young men. He entered young adulthood equipped with life skills, positive expectations, and a road map to success.

Book description…

My goal in this book is to give no-nonsense GPS advice to today’s generation of young men and provide them with knowledge, life skills, and guidelines for behaving like adult men, not like adolescent men. I want young men to open their eyes and minds. They need to recognize bad behavior and be willing to change physical expectations and spiritual understanding. These qualities must combine with a good relationship with family, friends, spouse, and society. I will spell it out clearly for young men, because unfortunately, parents, family, teachers, peers, social media, and society at large never explained or discussed the points I will bring up in this book. We will examine different aspects of young men’s lives; we will explore and educate about areas in their lives where they can and cannot create change, as well as pointing out what they simply don’t realize. Most young men have not had someone in their life to explain and teach the necessary life skills, behavior, spirituality, and interpersonal skills to present themselves as men in society.

A Practical Guide to Awakening Your True Self. Are you experiencing the feeling that something is missing in your life, that you are totally alone without support or assistance? Does there seem to be a gap that is not able to be filled with food, alcohol, sex, or the myriad temptations that are available? Spirituality A-Z: Spiritual Awakening Guide for Healing and Transformation provides a road map for exploring and experiencing transformation through the use of everyday spirituality, with 60 suggested practices that are simple and easy to try. Spirituality acknowledges that a relationship is possible with our God or higher power through spiritual practices that tangibly strengthen the connection to God or higher power. Spiritual practices help to build a love and appreciation of ourselves and God in all creation. They are meant to build and strengthen appreciation, compassion, and kindness in ourselves for all living things and to give us a feeling of never being alone. Spiritual practices give us a feeling of being a viable part of the universe and are a tangible way to show appreciation for all that has been given from God, as we understand God. These tried and true and sometimes ancient practices can be used for healing and transformation by anyone who wishes to explore and advance their spiritual life.

Scientists Discover the Human Brain Is Made Up of Eleven Dimensions! In a Newsweek article on June 12, 2017, scientists shared evidence that our brain is able to access a multidimensional universe—and contains structures and shapes that display up to eleven dimensions! Powerful light frequencies are moving through time and space, initiating extraordinary planetary evolution. We are in the midst of higher evolution, moving from the grip of the spider’s web of the lower energies to the awareness of the multidimensional self. Planet Earth is in the process of total transformation, not only on a global and universal scale, but also on personal level. Most people are still stuck in lower energies of the past programming, creating friction within the human body and mind. Their consciousness of self is based on five senses, limited to the physical world, and they are unable to experience other realities. But there are a myriad of different realities and dimensions that can be explored with the higher consciousness. Spider’s Web explores these higher dimensions, other realities, relationships, our connection to Planet Earth, and the concept that we are multidimensional beings.

Introducing Steven Rosner, author of God and Man: Love on the Rocks

“Bridget was invaluable in helping me solve several problems, most of which were due to me, and was extremely flexible when I desired a couple of formats that might not have been standard in the industry.”

Steven Rosner is seeker of truth. He is always looking at the bigger picture and delving deep into the core of what life means. If engaged in a conversation with Steve, you will always be challenged and perhaps enlightened by his unique and creative view of life, Scripture and spirituality. His keen intuitive sense may direct you to a new understanding that you were not aware of. If you want to know a person who is constantly probing the most difficult questions, it is Steve. Steve’s personal life has spanned a broad spectrum of experience and adventure. Steve has worked in corporate America as a systems analyst and driven a taxi, written a novel, produced his father’s play, published short stories, and a lot more. But enough of Steve’s resume, it is deeds that put him in his own category–for example, taking responsibility for his parents care so they can remain in their apartment. Steve goes out of his way to help others when he sees they are a victim of injustice. He is not afraid to get involved. His ambition is to inspire people to awaken to God’s tangibility and the wisdom of Scripture. Behind the scenes, Steve is a kind and caring person. He is a loving husband, father, and grandfather. And while some people, at first, find his direct manner a bit intimidating, his kindness is real. If you go deeper, you’ll discover his intention is always for the best and his heart is soft. He has a strong sense of integrity and honesty. He will not tell you what you want to hear, but will tell you the truth. His soul abhors deceit, so he often feels distressed observing the lack of integrity in our culture.

Book description…

“On the Rocks” was originally a phrase used for ships which ran aground and broke apart. But nothing could be a better metaphor to describe God’s relationship with man-hence the title of this book. For God created us with love and gave us His heart and soul: And God created Man in His Own Likeness; In God’s image created He him; both male and female. Alas, ever since Cain slew Abel, our relationship with God has been on the rocks. Throughout the Millennia, we have totally failed to act in accordance with His relatively few requirements. At best, we have ignored Him, but mostly mocked, disparaged, and treated Him with disdain. We have abrogated our responsibility, whether as an individual or nation, have engaged non-stop in the worst evil imaginable, causing Him untold suffering. (Part III presents multiple examples of the incredible evil of our species, detailing particularly monstrous religious and secular conflicts from 3000 BCE to the present.) Is it any wonder then, why God is estranged from us; why there is unrelenting havoc in our lives; why the world is falling apart; why suffering is prevalent at every level? In truth, no individual, no nation is immune! Isn’t it time we re-evaluated our behavior and altered it-to repair our relationship with God and gain His many blessings. But to understand how, we need to know something about God, something about ourselves, something about religion, and something about history. This book provides that understanding: It covers Scripture and science, God and His attributes, and Man-including his Free Will, Soul, Body and Mind. It addresses Good and Evil, the nature of each, and the role Satan plays in our lives. It reviews six major religions, and shows that at their core they are virtually identical. We will learn that God desires very little of us-regardless of our culture, religion, or ethnicity. In simple terms, He wants us to be righteous, do justice, and love compassion.

Introducing Margaret Watkins, author of The Fine Line

“After struggling for several years to get my medical memoir down on paper, I submitted query letters and manuscript samples to a number of mainline publishing houses and received polite negative responses from all of them. I felt that I had a story worth telling and explored alternative avenues of publishing. After reading an article in SKY magazine aboard a Delta flight about publish-on-demand companies, and doing some research on my own, I chose Outskirts Press, Inc. to publish The Fine Line. The process could not have been more simple, with step-by-step instructions and guidance. Everyone at Outskirts was very helpful, especially my author representative, and the product was a professional and lovely book of which I am very proud.”
