Self-Publishing Author Spotlight: David O’Conner

The self-publishing author is a special breed. Dedicated, independent writers spend many hours, many weeks and months – and often many years – doling out little pieces of themselves onto the pages of their books. This week’s Spotlight author is a great example of that dedication.

Each week, we celebrate one of our successful authors in our Self-Publishing Author Spotlight. This week Outskirts Press proudly features David O’Conner, author of four self-help books that have been helping readers handle stress, abuse, self-improvement and inspiration for years.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:David O'Conner
David O’Conner is an experienced speaker, business owner, author, and family man who writes “airplane books”. These 100-150 page books can be read in a couple of hours. He has wrapped his brand of Southern humor around messages that address increasing personal productivity and reducing stress – called O’talks. These O’talks are used in his speeches, workshops, and one-on-one coaching. They accomplish David’s desire to deliver material that conveys a positive, instructive, and retainable message, while equipping the reader/audience with the tools to overcome their challenges with confidence and independence.

Kenny’s Summer

by Edward Going

(5 Stars – 8 Customer Reviews)

Price: $14.95

Edward Going’s “Kenny’s Summer.” African Americans have been an integral part of the history of the United States. Because many of these great Americans were not gifted orators or incredible athletes, they have faded away from our history books. In this book, I hope to bring some of these lesser-known African-Americans from history to life. I want readers to find inspiration in what these people had to endure and in what they were able to accomplish and contribute to our society.
