Introducing Susan Lee, author of Hello, You Don’t Know Me

“My experience with Outskirts Press was outstanding! My questions were all answered and the representatives were kind and so helpful. No question was too small. The service itself was an amazing value compared to the costs of each service if purchased on my own. I am very pleased and more than satisfied with their attention to detail. Outskirts took away the entire worry about producing a professional product. From the fabulous custom cover design to the thoughtful packing of books I’ve ordered and the marketing coaching, the experience was wonderful. I have recommended Outskirts to other writers and I will definitely use their services to publish all of my future books. Outskirts allowed me to do what I do best: write. Outskirts did the rest. Thank you!”

Book description…

Slowly in the distance, the figure of the woman approached. She still wore the old fashioned clothes and the locket and the blue hair ribbon. She was holding something in an open palm. It was a very small key. It looked like a jewelry box key. She looked worried. “Why have you come to see me?” Susan asked the apparition. “There is grave danger from without and from within. He is coming and death is in his eyes. Beware of those who are your own. Warn the others. Terrible times are almost upon you. Some of you will not survive, I fear. I cannot stem the flow of the tides. Watch for the key. Remember, remember, remember,” she finished with a whisper and began to fade away. On board the private yacht in the Gulf, wine and camaraderie seem to flow, but Susan is haunted by visions of what is to come. From the dead calm sea, her predictions of a terrible storm seem foolish. But the computer reports of fair weather ahead aren’t the only things that lie on this ship. From the blackness Susan wonders where the others are and will any of them be alive to see the sun rise?

Indulge Yourself in the Fantasy. It began with the debut of Daughters of Twilight, when a mysterious object came out of the ground in a small Midwestern city, throwing the residents’ lives into chaos. Soldiers, local law enforcement, and government scientists were soon deployed to the site. Amidst the confusion and terror, a romance began between one of the soldiers and one of the supernatural beings who used the mysterious object as a doorway to the human world-and the result is a fast-paced tale of an unlikely love between a man of earth and a war angel. The trilogy continues in Sons of Twilight, with gripping suspense and unexpected twists and turns that do not allow a moment’s rest. This gripping, hardcore fantasy promises to engross readers to the last page…and beyond!

Introducing Bess T. Chappas, author of Wrath of Aphrodite

“My relationship with Outskirt Press during the planning and printing of my book, Wrath of Aphrodite, was very pleasant and business-like. The contact personnel were always ready to listen and solve any problem and to answer my many questions. They were knowledgeable and eager to help me, someone with few computer skills. Outskirts Press delivered exactly what I was promised and in a timely manner. I am writing another book and would have no problem working with them again. My author representative deserves my special thanks for her consideration and patience.”

Book description…

A love-struck and possibly vengeful marble statue of Aphrodite, the Greek Goddess of Love, becomes the third party in a love triangle in hot and sultry Savannah, Georgia in the 1970s. Michael Andrews, a handsome but troubled young man, is on the lam, fleeing Las Vegas pursued by a violent mobster. He seeks refuge with his godfather, Pinkie Masters-modeled on a real-life almost legendary Savannah figure. From there, Michael’s southern sojourn includes an encounter with a powerful politician, who has unusual marriage plans for his beautiful daughter, Stephanie, and a mysterious sexy encounter with a dangerous sculpture in the senator’s garden. Maggie, the senator’s housekeeper and granddaughter of a Gullah medicine woman, believes the statue is evil and becomes Michael’s unlikely ally. Michael searches for history of the statue he both admires and fears and is led to St. Augustine, Florida and a possible connection to a little known settlement of European settlers near New Smyrna established in 1767. Can he find a way to destroy the statue before he loses Stephanie’s love and the surprisingly happy life he has found in Savannah?

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.

No matter how hard she tried, Jenna couldn’t save them all. Jenna was too involved with her clients-had been since day one at the agency. Having walked the horrid path of abuse in her marriage to Tom, it still played on her emotions causing self-doubt. Since her divorce, she vowed to help every abused woman and child she could. Each time Jenna had to attend the funeral of a client she felt like a failure. Refusing to give in to her feelings, she fought hard to start over and put the past behind her, even though she still experienced a silent agony of her own. Jenna had worked side by side with the local DA on many domestic violence cases. And on occasion, she’d had to testify regarding a client causing her life to be put in danger. But if she could save one woman from meeting their demise, it was worth it. Roger Hawthorn had been DA for many years, and hadn’t lost a case thus far. He’d earned the respect and support of fledgling attorneys as well. But a woman he knew had been placed in a penitentiary and held against her will. Not even Roger could get the judge to overturn the sentence. Working with Roger and helping abused clients had pushed Jenna out her comfort zone, making her have compassion for others when she reaches out to offer hope of seeing change. But will it be enough to help Jenna bury the past and finally find the man of her dreams?
