The sign said: “Warning, you are entering a hazardous area.” There were all sorts of stories of what was going on in the facility, in the secret laboratories behind close doors. As I was cleared to enter through the labyrinth of rooms and hallways, strange smells and the screams of animals filled the air. I should have followed my first instincts, but I shook them off as just a bad case of nerves. All I knew was that the government had hired me for my computer skills. I should have known something was terribly wrong when they began to give me all those shots for smallpox, yellow fever, anthrax, and the plague.

Introducing Roy Albert Andrade, author of Cultivating the DNA of Crime

“Outskirts Press opened the door to the literary world. I just walked through it by opening an account. If, I remember correctly, I entered an email address, and provided a down payment. I was contacted by email, and asked to provide a time, and date I would be available to discuss my manuscript. The telephone conversation lasted nearly 30 minutes, and I learned what to expect before publication. I was exalted, because I knew this was going to be the beginning of a new friendship. I met various people through Outskirts Press in the production phase, and maintained excellent communication with them through email. Outskirts Press helped Cultivating the DNA of Crime come to fruition, and provided all the essential marketing solutions on a single webpage. I’m extremely happy with the outcome, and am currently working with George Pryce, a veteran of public relations. He read Cultivating the DNA of Crime, and was electrified. He was impressed, and commented on the interior design, title, cover art, synopsis, etc. Outskirts Press made this possible, and I am very grateful. The only thing I rue, and I thought about this the other day, is not having an ‘acknowledgment’ page. Where I can thank Outskirt Press, and provide the names of the individuals that participated in the production of Cultivating the DNA of Crime. The next manuscript we publish will have one.”

Roy Albert Andrade was born in Pacoima, California. He graduated with an Associates of Arts degree with concentrations in business from the University of Phoenix in 2011. Cultivating the DNA of Crime is his first novel.
