Introducing Caron Asgarali, author of From Lion to Lamb

“The decision to self-publish left me with many questions, many of them quite daunting. After discussions with another Outskirts Press author, I decided to research the site. I was impressed with the ease with which I was able to glean information from the site and at the range of services offered, catering for any budget. Working with Outskirts Press provided solutions for any difficulties which arose, their responses were prompt and effective and the quality of the front and back cover as well as the layout of the interior was excellent. Thank you Outskirts Press.”

Introducing Pura Regalado, author of Pure Gift

“I am an architect and I am not your typical writer who wants to be known. Book signing activities would be suicide for me. I wish I can impart to humanity a message of great importance for a better future for our world while staying anonymous. I wrote my book because a task compelled me to. I want to remain unknown but I cannot hide behind a pseudonym because the title of my book, ‘Pure Gift’ is English for my real name, which is essential to my story. Thank you, Outskirts Press for giving me a tool to carry out my task and my special gratitude to Colleen who was most helpful, very prompt and considerate in her responses to all my queries. I hope this endeavor will unload me of this heavy burden on my shoulders.”

Pura Regalado earned a B.S. in Architecture at the Mapua Institute of Technology in her native Philippines and taught there before migrating to Florida. She worked for an Architectural firm that specialized in luxury homes. Her last assignment before going on retirement was to supervise the construction of a multi-million dollar home in Florida, which got the Best Construction of the Year Award in Hollywood, Florida.

Product description…

Most Americans have the feeling that something is wrong with the country, but are unclear of exactly what it is. A look back into the decade of the 1950s may hold the answer. During this time period, most people felt safe, secure, and were engaged in deep caring relationships. When we exited this time period, we were no longer focused on relationships, but on things promoted by the business world which had promised to make life better for us. Sixty years later, we continue to strive for more and more of these things, still hoping to achieve the happiness promised so many years ago. Americans need to recognize that our lives are not getting better, and by continuing to live in this way, we are actually destroying our own lives, other relationships, and our country. Addiction is at the root of all of this. Learn how we were tricked years ago into becoming a country of addicts and how we can get those good feelings and caring relationships back again. The consequences of not addressing this vast national problem will be revealed, as well as how to begin resolving it. People from all socioeconomic levels will find this exploration of American life from the past to the present, enlightening and helpful. Everyone will be able to make positive changes for themselves and be able to start creating it on a national level as well.
