Introducing Donna M. Solitario, author of Embrace the Light

“Publishing my book with Outskirts Press has been an amazing journey. A dream come true which would not have happened without the support of their outstanding staff. After doing extensive research for the best publisher for my book, Embrace the Light, I was sold completely when I found Outskirts Press. My Author Representative went the extra mile for me. She took me through the publishing process step by step with patience and humor, which always made me feel optimistic. When she asked me to choose a poem for my website, I read it to her, and tears came to my eyes. It was a poem I dedicated to my students. She was extremely compassionate. Since my book has been published, I have the supportive Marketing COACH to help me promote my book. My students inspired me to write my book, and to see the pride and happiness on their faces when they first saw my book, left me speechless. Everyone is so proud of me, and I can hardly wait to publish my second book of poetry with Outskirts Press in the near future. Thank you, Outskirts Press, for all of your help!”

Letters to James After His Death by Opioid Overdose. After struggling with substance abuse for many years, James died of heroin overdose at the age of thirty-four. The year before his death he turned to a new and ‘clean’ life path in ways his family and friends had never seen. Nevertheless, in a few short weeks he relapsed and eventually overdosed and died. His death was a huge shock to those who loved him. Some months after James’ death, his dad, Jack, started writing a few letters to James as a way to reach out to him across the emptiness and loss that his death brought. The letters became a way for Jack to remember and reflect on their father and son relationship and the many ways their life paths had crossed, particularly in times of addiction. The writing continued until what had been a few letters became a large stack, which became the basis of this book. Among other things, the letters provided a medium for Jack to address his grief and to move toward healing. Most importantly, they created a means for after-death contact, including a way to affirm and express the love that they shared.
