Book description…

Life is filled with highs and lows. These are the moments that can dictate the course of your life. Life is also filled with seconds that turn into minutes that can be used in any way that you choose. Most people spend their precious time doing jobs and having lives that make them miserable. They have some “shadow” that seems to keep them from shining. It keeps them from truly utilizing their true potential.

In Fire Your Shadows and Hire the REAL You! Pete Betiku explains that a shadow can be a person, place, emotion, or thing that is preventing you from stepping out of your comfort zone, and living the life that you were placed on earth to live.

A shadow can be anything negative that is preventing you from embarking on a prosperous life. In this book, you’ll learn every step in the process of removing yourself from any shadow that is trying to be in your path. You’ll learn how to rise into your greatness, and step out of any shadow that might be covering you.

You will learn all the tricks, and be given the tools that everyone-from world-class athletes to world leaders-use to live a life in which they are using their potential to exert their inner greatness. Your inner greatness just waiting to be released is the part of you that always lived in you, but some fear or doubt shadowed this greatness.

Well, here is where we will bring out the REAL you, and you will fire a version of yourself that is now outdated-and hire the person who you always knew you would be.

Introducing P.A. Gawel, author of The Vile Seed Murders

“Keep up the good work. I have at least 3 more novels to come.”

In the third installment of the Son of a Son of the Thin Man series, author P. A. Gawel began his research at the Yankee Air Museum in Belleville, MI, the future home of the Rosie the Riveter museum. Writing about how Detroit has historically affected life in the USA and blending it with a murder mystery that affects not one but the many, continues with The Vile Seed Murders. Son of a bus driver and Rosie the Riveter, our author is one of eight children born and raised in Detroit. Seen here taking a B-24 Liberator for a test flight at the Yankee Air Museum, he started with an idea of incorporating stories from the dwindling tour de force known as Rosie the Riveters and turned it into a circa current day Detroit thriller.

Scientists Discover the Human Brain Is Made Up of Eleven Dimensions! In a Newsweek article on June 12, 2017, scientists shared evidence that our brain is able to access a multidimensional universe—and contains structures and shapes that display up to eleven dimensions! Powerful light frequencies are moving through time and space, initiating extraordinary planetary evolution. We are in the midst of higher evolution, moving from the grip of the spider’s web of the lower energies to the awareness of the multidimensional self. Planet Earth is in the process of total transformation, not only on a global and universal scale, but also on personal level. Most people are still stuck in lower energies of the past programming, creating friction within the human body and mind. Their consciousness of self is based on five senses, limited to the physical world, and they are unable to experience other realities. But there are a myriad of different realities and dimensions that can be explored with the higher consciousness. Spider’s Web explores these higher dimensions, other realities, relationships, our connection to Planet Earth, and the concept that we are multidimensional beings.

Book description…

As the youngest of three, Monica Crawford grew up heavily burdened at an early age. The unyielding pain and silence she knew left issues unresolved for years. As a manager, she is deliberate and ambitious, but uses her title to create discord in the name of power. What manner of power is she after? Many do not share her acclaim of self-respect and achievement. For the former Olympic athlete, her managing style becomes too much for several of her employees. Is there any peace and comfort around her? Not really. Life outside the workplace also has its issues. A single-mother of two, professional challenges, personal struggles, and the fading hope of finding a husband is the dark on the other side of her dim. Suddenly, an explosive and unthinkable family situation turns legal and flips the lives of those involved upside down. Now what?

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.

Book description…

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.
