Author Poll: Writer Alicia Schweikart wants your help with her cover

AAlicia Schweikart is self-publishing a book with Outskirts Press. And she wants your help deciding her book cover.

Book Summary

When Dane Walker Stone is brutally attacked, ending his career as a US Navy SEAL, his pain is magnified by yet another tragedy. Three days after his assault, he learns that his girlfriend, Lydia, has died from what the police have concluded was an accidental drug overdose.

Rehabilitation is difficult and painful, and Dane is left with physical and mental scars. He begins therapy with a private psychologist but is unable to remember the details of the attack. After he recovers from his extensive injuries, he studies investigative training and opens an office on the north side of Chicago as a private investigator. Dane is in the process of trying to rebuild his life when Lydia’s sister shows up asking for his help in solving what she believes is Lydia’s murder. When he discovers that a homicide victim is actually his old adversary, Dane realizes that he won’t be able to solve either crime until he solves the mystery of his own attack and overcomes the demons of his past that continue to haunt him. Hearts of Stone is a fast-paced, riveting tale–and the first book of the Dane Walker Stone, Private Investigator series.

About the Author

Self-Publishing Author Spotlight: Carolyn J. Sweers

Outskirts Press is regularly impressed with the creativity of our self-publishing authors. It takes a great deal of discipline and devotion to produce a book — much less several! Today we tip our hat to a woman who has channeled that creativity into three non-fiction books.

This week’s spotlight author is Caroyln J. Sweers. Carolyn has produced three books centered around mind, body and spirit. Learn more about the author and her literary journey here.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Carolyn J. Sweers is by temperament and training a philosopher. Early experiences of a mystic Silence led to a life long quest to find places where the silence lurked and to find the words that point, that clarify, that remind.

Earth, Air, Fire, Water: Recollections of an Iowa ChildhoodEarth, Air, Fire, Water: Recollections of an Iowa Childhood

“I grew up on an Iowa farm in the 40’s and 50’s. I was fortunate to have a lot of leisure time for contemplating the land, the sky, the growing seasons, the work that humans did, as well as the reality of death. The seeds of the philosopher I was to become were sown early, as I observed the world of my rural childhood. These recollections were originally written in 1985 and extensively revised in 2014.” Carolyn Sweers
