Introducing Patricia Little-McCrain, author of How Many Frogs Do We Have to Kiss? Finding That Prince/Princess: Stories About Online Dating

“From the moment I decided to use Outskirts Press, I knew that I would be very satisfied. My Publishing Consultant was so very helpful and my Author Representative walked me through the process.
I thanks both these ladies for the great job they did for me. This was my second book and I decided to use this company instead of the one that I used for my first book.
I am currently working on a third book about my sleepy little town and will be contacting Outskirts Press again.”

Book description…

In Men Really are From Mars, I shared my trials and tribulations with online dating as an older woman. Since publishing my first book, I have been contacted by men and women from all over the United States telling me their stories with the online dating world, and in How Many Frogs Do We Have to Kiss?, I share many of those stories with you. Of course, I have added a few of my more recent experiences as well. Some of the stories are heart-warming, some are cautionary tales, and some are just hilarious! Online dating should be an exciting and enjoyable experience, and as you will read, for some folks it was, but for others, it was a disaster. All of these stories are from the heart, and I have gone through it all so that, hopefully, my readers can avoid heartache and scams. The phrase “Take it from someone who’s been there” sums it up pretty well! My journey with online dating continues…

Introducing Charles Massie, author of Pinned

“I have published 2 books with Outskirts Press now. I am happy with the professionalism of the company representatives as well as the fact that the company keeps its promises and does everything that they say will do. I started out in self publishing with a competitor and wasted over $6000 trying to get my books out to the public. I would place calls to them for progress reports and would never get a call back. In fact, about the only time they would call me was when they wanted to sell me another product. After a bit of adding additional information and re-editing the book, I contacted Outskirts Press. They kept in contact with me every step of the way, and Pinned – A Kentucky True Crime was published. Within a few weeks, the book was listed on Amazon and Barnes and Noble sites and I was actually making sales.”

Charles Massie grew up in upstate New York, the oldest of 4 children. After finishing high school, he enlisted in the United States Navy and served a total of six years at various ports around the world. Upon his return to civilian life, he continued his education at Syracuse University and eventually worked for a number of engineering firms, before finding his calling in the sales field. Having an entrepreneurial spirit, he decided to go off on his own and has been instrumental in overseeing such companies as Massie Engineering Associates, InfoTech Consulting, LLC and CaterCats Catering. The call of creative expression was always in the background of his life and over the years, he has submitted articles and stories to Twilight Zone Magazine, Readers Digest, Analog Publications and others. He has recently published two novels in the ‘true crime’ genre and is currently writing a young adult adventure novel entitled The Boy in the Bin. His hobbies, when he is not writing, include progressive rock music, computers and other toys, traveling and enjoying the gifts that he has been blessed with. He loves animals, humor, exotic cars and practicing random acts of kindness.
