Introducing Johnny Wills, author of From Peanuts to Plasma: The Life Story of Johnny D. Wills

“While writing my first book, I began searching for a publisher. When I found Outskirts Press, my search was over. I knew they would be my publisher. They were so up front and transparent in every respect. After talking with my Publishing Consultant, I knew exactly what I was getting and exactly how much my cost would be. I have never dealt with a company that was so well organized. My Author Representative was fantastic and I was so pleased that I had ample time to review and approve every part of my book before it was published. I couldn’t be happier with my book. It’s a beautiful thing!”

Introducing Sherwin Presley Brown, author of Jamerican: The Gift of Poverty

“They came yesterday: my ten free copies of Jamerican: The Gift of Poverty. Perfectly beautiful, very happy with the result! Thanks for contributing to my goals, dreams and visions or as we all know it — ‘LIFE’.”

Born on the island of Jamaica in dirt-poor poverty, Sherwin Presley Brown was blessed with the personality, great work ethic, and positive attitude that rocketed him to unimaginable heights of success. Through the support and guidance of hard-working parents and siblings, Sherwin is living proof that honest effort and great expectations are truly the path that will lead you anywhere you want to go. The second of nine children born to Thomas and Joyce Brown, Sherwin realized his boyhood dream of coming to the United States in 1982. He graduated from the prestigious University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota, in 1986 with a BA in accounting; not bad for a kid who grew up in the jungle and didn’t own a pair of shoes until he was fourteen years old. Mr. Brown became a US citizen in 1988, and went on to distinguish himself as a successful investment advisor. In 2000, after working for only three years with one of the largest insurance and brokerage firms in America, he became the top producer among its 3,000 nationwide representatives. Impressive by any standards, but especially when viewed through the lens of his provincial Caribbean background where even the poor people in his home village of Greencastle, Jamaica, looked upon his family as poverty stricken. Sherwin’s story is the stuff of dreams and is an inspiring rags-to-riches tale all unto itself. Despite his successes in corporate America, Sherwin was not satisfied with a stable, well-paying job and opted to flex his entrepreneurial muscles by developing his own investment models and methods. After three years, he realized his business philosophy differed too significantly from that of his partners, which subsequently led him to found, as sole owner, the aptly named financial services firm Jamerica Financial, Inc. Sherwin currently coaches, writes, and speaks to people about how to improve and safeguard all aspects of their financial portfolios. Jamerican: The Gift of Poverty is the third book by Sherwin. His first book, Safer 401(k) Investing: How to Protect All Your Investments from Wall Street Greed and the Government, was published in 2012. He also co-wrote two children’s book with his 6 year old son Thomas: The Next Door Neighbor Cats with the Funny Names and Why Do We Eat Animals?, which were also just published in 2014 and is available in print and as an eBook. His other book, The Lies of the DOW, will be published in late 2014. For more about Sherwin and his books, please visit www.sherwinpbrown.com.

Introducing Charley Jordan, author of Moonshiner’s Son

“I didn’t have any idea how to choose a publisher so I contacted a local author and he highly recommended Outskirts Press. He gave me excellent advice. All of the Outskirts Press representatives were very professional and patient with me. They had to take time to define some of the publishing terminology. My printed book is outstanding. I love the way Outskirts designed the cover and interior.”

Charley Jordan and his wife Maxine live along Hudson Lake near Pryor, Oklahoma. They enjoy hunting, fishing, gardening, and spending time with their daughter and grandchildren.
