Twelve Outskirts Press self-publishing authors are celebrating the holidays this year with a valuable gift to themselves and their fans — the gift of priceless exposure! This is the time when their books will appear in the annual the New York Times Holiday Books Edition.
Published each December, this edition of the NYT Book Review is a special edition co-op ad that represents a unique — and rare — opportunity to gain priceless visibility, just in time for the holiday book-buying boom. The New York Times Holiday Books Edition is distributed to nearly 5 million people, and in the pages of that edition is the Outskirts Press co-op announcement (featured at the end of this blog post). Today we shine the holiday spotlight on author G.A. Whitmore’s fiction, A Place to Call Home: Toby’s Tale.
A Place to Call Home: Toby’s Tale
Every rescue dog has a tale to tell, a story uniquely their own. A Place to Call Home is Toby’s tale. His story takes you on a journey across the country from California to Connecticut and across the spectrum of life’s emotional and spiritual experience. Born on a small farm in northern California, Toby narrowly escapes the death sentence imposed upon him by his breeder. Through a series of events driven by good intentions, he finds himself in a Connecticut suburb where life with his new family soon collapses on him, and his newfound happiness is brutally destroyed. On his quest to find a place to call home, Toby encounters and endures the best and worst of humanity as he comes face to face with sorrow and joy, fear and courage, and ultimately, with the power of love.
