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!”

Tom McCrory applied personal affirmations to secure the perfect job and to retire at age 55. He became the supervisor of an engineering workshop in a multinational company, and was later able to retire-one month before his 55th birthday. He is enjoying his retirement and lives in the countryside.

Why should we master forgiveness? Because we have needed to be forgiven at some point. We are all human and are entitled to mistakes. Giving others grace and room to mess up usually comes back to you in the same measure. Five Layers Deep on How to Forgive will help you see how important it is to forgive others and yourself. This book gives you 5 practical situations that can help you in life. It is time to let go of what you have not been able to forgive. Letting go of resentment when you don’t really want to develops your character and leaves room for blessings. Choose to be the person that people love to be around and not the person that everyone avoids.

Introducing Howie Keller, author of The Fork In Your Road

“I was new to writing a book, I knew I had the writing talent, yet I was green to the world of publishing. I looked over different outfits, and Outskirts seemed like the most complete, and protective of my integrity and rights. Boy, am I glad I went with Outskirts Press. Things went very well. When I got stuck, they helped all they could, and between them and a hired pro computer expert, I got things all together and everything went smoothly and without delays. They are very professional, and very supportive, not to mention knowledgeable about every little thing you need to do to have your book published the way you want. Not the way they want. Big difference when you write. It’s your book, it’s you. They get it bigtime. I am working hard on my first murder mystery novel, and when it’s done I know they will help me make it as good as it can be, I will need them to do a cover and know they will KILL IT, no pun intended, well maybe a little one. Seriously, shop around, I bet you will find what I did. Best of luck to all authors out there, work hard and stay humble.”

About Howie Keller: At 50 Years of age, I have made mistakes I wish I could have back. You don’t have to make them. Save time and money and anguish and get on the positive self direction track. My Mother told me many times to help others, this is My only aim.

Book description…

Ruth writes her memoir with raw and intense honesty. Refusing to have grown up through pain and suffering for no apparent reason, Ruth inserts a life lesson she learned as a result of experiencing a particular family dysfunction. “Sticky Notes” are inspirational lines that offer encouragement and support found throughout the book, making her book the first memoir written with a self-help connotation. Ruth realized that pain stays alive in us when we hold onto what has been done to us, so with candor and frankness, she shares her amazing story. Who better to help someone who has been mistreated, abused and neglected, than someone who also was mistreated-and overcame! An incredible book – even if its subject matter has nothing to do with your situation, this story can help you to understand your own life and circumstances more clearly. Family dysfunction touches millions of people and has no boundaries. It is found in every country and in all walks of life, taking victims in every social class, income bracket and education level. “This book is a must-read for educators. Honest and transparent, Ruth Pollack shares her personal story of tragedy and triumph, survival and success. The childhood experiences she discloses are at times uncomfortable – experiences that are current realities for many children in our schools – she reminds us to always show compassion and concern for our students.” -Melissa Thompson, K-12 Administrator
