Introducing Mark Herod, author of The S.H.A.D.O.W.’s Of Sedona

“My Author Rep was fantastic. Jerry was so helpful when some problems surfaced concerning my original manuscript. He knew exactly how to correct the issue that originated from my laptop. I’m working on my second book now and I’m sure the process will be much quicker and easier this time around. Jerry educated me on the in’s and out’s throughout the whole process and I consider myself lucky for having him as my Rep. Thank you so much Jerry.”

Mark A. Herod spent time in the USAF at several locations around the world that required a “Top Secret” security clearance. He believes technology will someday provide the opportunity for time travel, forward and backward, to perhaps change history or learn from the future. He and his wife live only hours from Sedona, Arizona, and Mark’s obsession with the American Indian culture, specifically the Navajo tribe and their spiritual beliefs, inspired The S.H.A.D.O.W.s of Sedona, his debut novel.

Book description…

Cole Youngblood is a Navajo tribal member by blood, a park ranger in Sedona, Arizona, by necessity. He is also a renowned tracker and geographical expert in the Four Corners area, making him highly sought after in missing person cases. While on a camping trip with his sister and her friends, Cole rescues a trapped wolf pup, whom he names Shadow, in a deep shaft-leading to his accidental discovery of an underground government facility with a huge secret… The S.H.A.D.O.W. agency has created a way for humans to travel back in time with great precision, stopping heinous crimes before they happen, changing the destiny of certain people who died before their time-and preventing young children from being abducted and disappearing forever. If Cole joins this quest, he will be able to change the past in order to improve the present…and perhaps even rid the world gradually of the ever-present evil that has become all too familiar.

Introducing Peter Warren, author of The Horry County Murders

“As someone who has previously has two other books published with another company, I am somewhat aware of the process involved in having a book published. Part of this entire process is selecting the right company to publish something you have worked so hard on for many months. My experience with Outskirts Press has been very positive and I have been very pleased by the finished product they have delivered to me. The cover alone has drawn many great reviews alone in the few short weeks since the book’s release. I look forward to having Outskirts Press publish another book I am already working on.”

Book description…

“Peter Warren’s experiences as a criminal investigator are clearly captured in this exciting new book. You cannot help but feel like you are there with Paul and Bobby Ray as they attempt to solve this series of murders that confront them.” —Colonel Kenneth H. Kirschner (Ret.), Connecticut Department of Public Safety

“It is great to see the characters of Paul Waring and Bobby Ray Jenkins back from Warren’s first novel Confederate Gold and Silver. No one is more qualified to write a murder mystery than Warren. His unique experience and these great characters make this book a real page turner from the start.” —Dr. Mark Foster, The University of Georgia

“A deadly combination of murder, drugs, criminals of all sorts, and great suspense. A well-written murder mystery which is a must read! Very, very entertaining!” —SAC Jeffrey Brandau (Ret.), Kansas Bureau of Investigation

“Many people set out to try and write an exciting novel or two, but few succeed as well as this author has. Warren’s career as a state trooper prepared him to have a second one as a great storyteller. This is such an occasion! This is a GREAT follow-up to Confederate Gold and Silver.” —Major Timothy Baughman (Ret.), New Mexico State Police

Paul Waring, a retired state trooper from Connecticut, is recruited by his friend, Captain Bobby Ray Jenkins, from the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Department, to help solve a series of brutal murders that continue to occur between Myrtle Beach and Georgetown.
