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!”

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?

Introducing Brenda Harlow Dean, author of Rose Cliff Plantation: The Secrets Revealed

“I appreciate all the information Outskirts Press has given me to use in getting my book into the hands of readers. But, I never dreamed how very hard this publishing part of the “dream” could be. The folks that have purchased my book have been so pleased. Most, if not all, of them, were ladies that seemed to find a character that spoke to them and allowed the reader to escape into the Rose Cliff Plantation, if only for a little while.”

Brenda Dean was inspired to write this novel by an old mansion on the cliffs of the Pamlico River. She lives in Lucama, North Carolina, with her husband James Dean. They both share a love of books, long evening walks, and coffee. She hopes you will enjoy this book. Happy Reading!

For some people, having it all is never enough. Salem Prescott “Buzz” Williamson III, Chairman and CEO of The Vantage Holding Group, can’t understand how to limit his ambitions. He might have been born with better instincts, but his belief in The Golden Rule crumbled after the tragic death of his beautiful younger sister, Patricia Marie. Without her to serve as his moral compass, Salem has become increasingly skewed and misguided, concerned only with stroking his ego and acquiring worldly goods. This miserable and selfish power-monger, with his blatant disregard for the feelings and dignity of his fellow man, is in desperate need of salvation…but he doesn’t know it. Soon, he will be given the opportunity to choose whether he wants to be saved, or continue on the road to perdition. Extraordinary circumstances will intervene to present Salem with his final chance…will he reconsider his vile behavior to mankind, or will a new opportunity for exceptional profit draw him deeper into his vile life as an ego-driven business tycoon? He must choose carefully, for not even his boundless resources will allow him to circumvent his fate.

Introducing Steve Sellers, author of Epiklesis

“My experience with Outskirts Press was wonderful. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire process.

Book description…

EPIKLESIS is a spiritual mystery about light and darkness, life and death, hope and despair, and about two orthodox and conservative priests who find themselves in the middle of the ancient battle that still rages over the souls of men, women, and children. It is the story about a spiritual war that is, for the most part, unseen, unheard, unspoken, and ignored. It is a story about shadows, about seduction, about the primordial forces of darkness that continue to pursue and bewitch the Lord’s precious children, even in the pews, classrooms, and administrative offices of the old mainline Christian denominations. It is also a story about friendship, faith, and the enduring power of prayer. The story begins in the turbulent days of the spring and summer of 1968, following the assassinations of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Senator Robert Kennedy, and then winds its way across three states – steadily and inexorably — to the very doorway into Sheol. “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes” (Ephesians 6:10-11).

They started this little journey to gain insight into Elaine’s past, or should I say ‘past life’? I was a fool, I was their guide. What we gained was so much more and what we lost was irreplaceable. We entered an ancient cave out of curiosity and exited into a world that shouldn’t exist. Avalon, a great country that exists only in myth and legend, but I promise you…it is neither. We struggled with what was real and what we hoped would be fantasy…it was real, too real. We left that cave and found terror and the promise of death waiting for us. We were in a race for our survival and this world’s very existence. So few realize how the past is tied to the present. Sad, really. Anyways, we were given three days…but to do what? To explore? To meet King Arthur and his Knights? No, we were given three days to survive, and if we did, we could leave the way we came. IF we survived. And our chances were growing slimmer by the minute. A thousand years ago a sword could cut through a woman just as easily as a man. We found this out the hard way. Ghosts, evil men, a land locked a thousand years in the past and vengeance reawakened against Elaine…or at least who she was a thousand years ago. I was left the task of telling our story. Elaine wrote it, and I am seeing that all get a chance to read it. You may not believe the words you read, but as Elaine said…the truth is simple, the truth is unbelievable, none the less, it is the truth…Mark.

Book description…

Daniel Stone’s new novel is a powerful mix of suspense and paranormal mystery based on the connection between two love stories that take place 100 years apart. Both stories take place at the same manor on a beautiful island that legend said was the angels’ playground on earth. The manor was built on a plateau between two tall mountains where the legend also said the angels ascended and descended from Heaven to their playground. This land was sacred and hallowed ground-not to be violated! Against this magical backdrop, the book takes a satirical look at an extremely rich and powerful couple who get caught up in the ultimate spiritual warfare. This couple is used to solving everything with logic and money and power, but they are in a situation that cannot be solved with any of the above-and they risk losing everything, including their massive empire. Crossroads at the Manor is the first book of a trilogy that will keep you in suspense from start to finish!
