Introducing Gregory L. Pollock, author of Pennies From Josh: Stories of a Father Dealing with the Death of His Only Son

“I want to say that Outskirts did a great job on the book. Everyone I worked with was fantastic and very patient with an old man with little computer skills. I am very happy with the outcome. Thank you very much.”

Mr. Pollock spent most of his adult life as a truck driver. A mostly simple and uneventful life like most of us. He was reluctantly thrust into the role of author after the death of his son. This is a book he felt compelled to write in an attempt to help others dealing with this particular form of grief.

These are the stories that represent a bond between father and son that even death couldn’t break. They are stories of a form of after-death communication that helped me survive and cope with the death of my only son. Losing a child is a traumatic experience that is unnatural in the order of things and something you never “get over,” you just learn to cope.

Book description…

Page Langford is fifty years old, a wife and a mother-and now that she’s dead, she finds herself in the unenviable position of existing as one of the living dead. She is forced to watch as her friends and family’s lives unravel. There are secrets long since buried, lies too deep and gruesome to believe. But they’re all true, all of them, and Page is glad to be dead. Glad to feel no pain. If she were still alive, the pain of the betrayal and the lies would be too much for her to bear. As a spirit, Page watches and tries to help her loved ones. She tries to give them choices, feelings she places in their hearts and souls. She attempts to direct them so the inevitable won’t occur, but they never listen. They feel her presence but ignore her warnings, her gentle nudging. Unable to do anything else, Page just waits and welcomes her loved ones as they join her in death, one by one…

A Simple Act of Kindness – or the Touch of an Angel?

When Sandra lost her son in a tragic car accident, she could not have imagined the myriad ways that grief would affect her family, and everyone who had known Joe. The pain seemed unbearable, but gradually, Sandra learned that while nobody ever heals completely from the loss of a loved one, it is possible to learn to live with even the most unexpected loss. Sandra’s journey of healing was blessed by an angel given to her in the form of a friend who agreed to help her with a special quilting project … a project that ended up as a catalyst to unlock thoughts and feelings Sandra thought she had dealt with, but which she had only kept hidden. The angelic presence in Sandra’s family touched many lives, helping them to deal honestly with their feelings about Joe’s death, rather than covering them with the mask of day-to-day living. Join Sandra as she endures the unbearable … and as she begins to experience the miracle of grace, and comes to realize that we all walk through life with pain in our hearts, but when we reach out to ease the sorrow of another, we are given greater strength to bear our own heartaches. Joe’s Clothes is a lyrical, honest story of hope and healing that will make you more aware of the angels who offer comfort in times of need.
