Introducing Kent Mills, author of Once Upon A Time When Tobacco Was Good

“Since this is my first published book, I don’t know what I expected from a publishing company. What I found is a refreshing business relationship with Outskirts Press. They seem as excited about my book as I am. I have found a major difference in the way I am received by strangers when I introduce myself as an author. I have already recommended two people to Outskirts Press. Thank you so much for your continuing marketing support.”

Kent Mills lived through the time when tobacco was considered a good thing and a wonderful way to earn your living. Born in 1942, as a young boy, Mr. Mills’ winters were for schooling in the area’s only city, but all his summers were spent on his uncle’s tobacco farm where he lived from June until October. His humorous and streetwise writing style was developed from a mix of city boy/country boy living. Kent’s self-described punchline poetry, can be found in several books including Poet’s Domain, published by Patricia Adler of Hampton Roads Publishing, Charlottesville, Virginia, 22902.

Introducing Nadi Williams, author of Seal the Deal

“My experience with Outskirts Press has been nothing less than remarkable. Four days after I submitted my manuscript, I learned that it had been selected for publication. Immediately, the support began to pour in. It started with Jamie. She walked me step-by-step through the process and answered every question in detail before passing me over to Laura who became my biggest cheerleader until the book was published. I believed that my book was great before submission. Outskirts Press confirmed that belief and are helping me convince others of this fact. Not only would I recommend this publishing company, I plan to use them again. So grateful our paths crossed.”

Introducing L.E. Green, author of God’s Pathway to Marriage

“It’s a rarity in life where you actually encounter people who are able to grasp your vision in the exact fashion that you imagined it. Not only that, but the gifting and expertise of the members of Outskirts Press defined my vision with much more clarity than I could even fathom. When I suggested what I wanted to see on my customized cover, Outskirts Press obliged. But they also sent me a second cover to consider, and I was simply amazed. In the end, my book has one of the most beautiful image and color schemes that I have ever seen. So many people have complimented me on the cover. I also need to mention the fact that I was a little ill-prepared when I originally submitted the manuscript. I had never written a book before. Being somewhat of a perfectionist, I wasn’t satisfied with my own editing. I did six edits before I felt it was publishing material. However, during the process, Outskirts was extremely patient with me. As a matter of fact, one of the staff suggested that I do a reformat instead of paying for the edits on a line by line basis. This saved me hundreds of dollars. Thank you Outskirts Press. I consider you all family now.”

However, reaping the benefits from our set times and seasons requires us to be in the appointed place at the appointed time. In “God’s Pathway to Marriage,” you will learn how to prepare and properly position yourself to acquire your companion. You’ll also find the answers to questions such as: * Why was Adam alone at the beginning of creation? * What caused God to say, “It is not good for the man to be alone.” * What did God accomplish by bringing the animals before Adam? * What are the pathways revealed in Genesis, chapters 16 and 24? * Why was it significant that women drew water from the well, and how does that relate to marriage preparation? * What did Jesus desire to do for the Samaritan woman at the well? …and much more. Whether you are a babe in Christ, or a seasoned veteran, you’ll be astounded at the unorthodox, yet scripturally-based revelations that are uncovered in this work of art.
