Introducing Harry Anderson, author of Pleasant Things in Ashes Lie

“I am 80 years old and have learned to be suspicious of the hype coming from businesses.

A miracle got me through my disaster, and a miracle again got my book published.”

They fled their burning home into the night and watched with horror and disbelief the flames eating through the roof over their daughter’s bedroom. Thus began an elderly couple’s struggle to overcome trauma and to rebuild. Braced by the outpouring of good will, they regained composure. But more than good will was needed to deal with such exigencies as insurance matters, temporary shelter, demolition, and reconstruction. With almost no library materials to be had to help, they relied on what they thought to be a sign of hope: only their Bible, miraculously, lay undamaged among all the other books. Was it happenstance or was it a miracle that guided them through the maze of decisions and requisites that faced them? Pleasant Things in Ashes Lie gives a candid account of this elderly couple’s triumph over adversity. It is written with the intent that others – victims of house fires – may glean from this story something to help them also to triumph.

Introducing Ronald Montgomery, author of No Turning Back

“The beginning of my writing journey began on Carmel Beach, in California. That journey changed direction when I discovered Outskirts Press – when I decided to put my poetry into print. I selected Outskirts based on a number of factors – value, quality and responsiveness. I have remained with Outskirts Press because they have proven their worth to me over a period of seven years and seven books. Each book project has been part of my development. In the beginning, I knew a little about self-publishing and the processes. After seven books, my expectations are validated by experience, and my anticipation is whetted by positive past Outskirt Press performance. The most valuable part of the process has been the coaching and support provided by the publishing professionals assigned to my projects. What could have been painfully slow and grueling to a novice was pleasant and speedy.”

Book description…

“Because I didn’t know what I didn’t know, ‘not doing’ was never a consideration. Because I didn’t know that communicating through poetry was a particular skill that required knowledge of the rules and tradition, I never considered not beginning this adventure. I’ve spent some time watching my children grow up and realized that until they are imprisoned by words like limits, rules and boundaries, they are unfettered creators. When I write, I call on my childlike nature as I explore life’s experiences. More often than not, I walk away from my work with fresh perspectives. I have now arrived at this point, where the starting point is out of sight. The goal of the ‘High Calling’ is visible, but the journey is far from over.”

Book description…

Buddhist Sacred art and Christian iconography: can they have anything in common? This book is about Buddhist religious art as seen from a Christian perspective. It might seem that Buddhism and Christianity have little or nothing in common, yet there is a mystical dimension in religious art that some times transcends cultural and theological boundaries. Significant differences exist between the beliefs and practices of both religions, and those differences must be respected. Yet in their respective forms of religious art surprising commonalities are found. This book by Professor Lester Bundy helps to explain some of the similarities, differences, and limits of Buddhist and Christian religious images. Head Minister of Tri-State & Denver Buddhist Temple Rev. Doei Fujii Fr. Lester Bundy has written a significant book about the role of art and iconography in religion, focusing on both Buddhism and Christianity. A book which reminds us about the great importance of such religious art is thus quite important and should be widely read. John F. Kane, Emeritus Professor and Former Chair, Religious Studies, Regis University.

Everything Returns. The cane evolved. It was no longer just a support. It became a sign of authority, dignity, wealth, and power. And then the cane became an accessory. So we see around us that change is inevitable. We adapt to the change and then we invent and go beyond. First the Beatles, then Elvis, then Jay Z and next? We invent, create, improvise, and go beyond. This book walks through the colorful history of canes from the Bible to Bebop, and Beyond. How about coming along?
