Outskirts Press: Tell us a little bit about SERVANT LEADER IN ACTION. What is it about?

Neville: The book is about the importance and value of Servant Leadership in transforming organizations to achieve sustainability and resilience in an uncertain and unpredictable future due to the simultaneous impact of disruptive forces. Four disruptive forces are considered in the book: Exponential technological changes, pandemics such as COVID-19 and its variants, the impact of climate change and global warming, and the fight for supremacy by countries across the globe in the areas of economic power and nuclear energy.

The book emphasizes the use of use three important servant leadership competencies in transforming organizations:
• Strategic Thinking
• Conversational Competencies and
• Emotional Intelligence Competencies

The book stresses the point that in the process of transforming organizations for sustainability and resilience, the three servant leadership competencies must be applied in conjunction with four critical success factors:

EMPOWERING: building people’s creative and decision-making capacity in the organizations being served.

RISK-TAKING: establishing strategies for two future scenarios—success and failure.

FINANCING: making organizations financially self-sufficient, thus giving them greater freedom to develop creative strategies and innovative actions.

PRESERVING: maintaining core values such as honesty, fair play, excellence in performance and customer satisfaction while responding to the imperative for radical changes dictated by disruptive forces.

Outskirts Press: Why did you decide to write this story?

Neville: Having served successfully over 50 organizations and transformational projects at the national, regional and international levels, I want to share the lessons I learnt from applying servant leadership in the transformative process with seasoned and emerging leaders who are seeking to transform their organizations to achieve sustainability and resilience for a future which is unpredictable and uncertain.

Outskirts Press: How did you get your book published?

Neville: I developed the book manuscript and then enlisted Outskirts Press’s services to publish it.

Outskirts Press: What types of readers would be interested in this story?

Neville: Seasoned leaders and emerging leaders seeking to successfully transform their organizations to achieve sustainability and resilience for an unpredictable and uncertain future.
The book is also intended for students and faculty members in colleges and universities who are studying and researching the area of Transformational Leadership and the role and value of utilizing servant leadership competencies.

Outskirts Press: What is special about your book?  

Neville: The book focuses on the role and value of servant leadership in empowering people in organizations to be fit for purpose in the workplace of the future, which the increased velocity of digitization and digitalization will significantly influence. The book stresses the importance of how the servant leader combines and integrates strategic thinking, emotional intelligence and conversational competencies with key elements of transformational leadership, such as inspirational motivation, intellectual stimulation and empathy in empowering people in the organization. This is based on the book’s premise that empowered people provide the launching pad for the successful transformation of organizations.
The book also contains exceptional cases based on organizations where I have successfully applied servant leadership to transform them to be sustainable and resilient.

Self-Publishing Author Cloe Couturier DMQ, CO, CSD Discusses CRANIOSACRALQIGONG® VOL.1

Author Cloe Couturier is taking her latest book, CRANIOSACRALQIGONG Volume 1 on tour – a Virtual Book Tour, that is, with Outskirts Press! Technology has created a wide variety of ways to reach audiences all over the world. All it takes is a little thinking outside the box, and nowadays you can market a self-published book in a variety of affordable and impactful ways. Virtual book tours, for example, are a great way to connect with readers from all corners of the globe, all from the comfort of your own home. Join Cloe Couturier and CRANIOSACRALQIGONG Volume 1 as they appear in features and interviews (such as the one below) in the weeks and months ahead!


Luckily for us, Cloe Couturier was kind enough to answer a few questions as the tour was getting started so that we can give you a sneak peek into the mind of the creator of CRANIOSACRALQIGONG Volume 1.

Outskirts Press: Tell us a little bit about CRANIOSACRALQIGONG Volume 1. What is it about?

Cloe: In seeking help for her son, diagnosed at four years old with DMD, Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, an incurable illness that came with the prognosis of a shortened life, Dr. Cloe Couturier ventured to deploy means that would transmute this outcome.

In this multidimensional signature story, the author modifies her blog into empirical evidence of the emergence and the birthing of CranioSacralQigong® as a new modality, in its own evolutionary process.

Through the combined practices of both Craniosacral work and Medical Qigong, a new approach to integrated natural wellness and holistic medicine has evolved over many years.
This model encompasses blending some of the most ancient Eastern models, medical Qigong, with the cutting edge of the evolution of Western medicine, Craniosacral work.
All the schools of craniosacral work will benefit from these teachings. Dr. Cloe has embraced, updated, and upgraded the Upledger Craniosacral model of Craniosacral work because she was privileged to be working right next to Dr. John Upledger for many years.
Indeed, world-renowned osteopath Dr. John Upledger, DO, OMM (1932-2012) invited Dr. Cloe Couturier to work by his side, at his clinic in Palm Beach County, Florida, in 1995, where she practiced for 24 years. She then moved a few blocks away to establish the next edge of Craniosacral work into CranioSacralQigong®.
Her approach to Craniosacral work started as a biodynamic osteopath and evolved into blending Upledger Craniosacral work with medical Qigong into what she continues to develop, CranioSacralQigong®.
“This book represents a pivot in the evolution of the awakening of human consciousness, evolving from my personal and professional lives. It is a vector because it carries an energy trajectory that manifests as a living transmission once aligned. Following the valuable lineages of thousands of years of transmission, I have been a worthy student as I have put what my teachers taught me into practice, and it has carried its fruits.” —Dr. Cloe Couturier, DMQ
CranioSacralQigong® has emerged as a new modality in its evolutionary process.
In honor and as a following of these revered lineages, Dr. Couturier invites the next generation of thirsty students to discover some of the most potent consciousness pathways one can establish in all dimensions of their lives through the teachings and practice of CranioSacralQigong®.
Despite being dealt some of the most challenging cards, the progression of her choices granted Dr. Couturier some of the most successful manifestations one can achieve in life, personally and professionally, and in her practice. This book is an invitation for students who will feel worthy of learning and get empowered by a master.
“I am already mighty proud of all my current students and how well they are learning and evolving in all aspects of their lives, both personally and professionally. I am looking forward to the new ones that will also choose to study with me. “Dr. Cloe Couturier, DMQ
When the rules of Qigong passed on diligently for thousands of years from worthy masters to worthy students are appropriately followed, one develops and embodies pathways to consciousness power. By combining Craniosacral work at its osteopathic root, with medical Qigong, Dr. Cloe Couturier demonstrates how a spontaneous update and an upgrade to each modality have merged into a biodynamic approach to health, wellness, and healing.

It is about the spontaneous development of a new form of health, fitness, and healing, and how I came to develop CranioSacralQigong®. It is the blending of two of the most powerful approaches of health and healing, and the merging of eastern and western medicine, medical Qigong craniosacral osteopathy.
It started in 1994 when I received both teachings at the same time, as an osteopath, and it has evolved ever since.
There were actually other aspects to this before, since I had been awaken to this understanding by different other components, which are narrated in the book
This is all documented in scientific organizations.
World Congress on Qigong where I presented on the combination of CST and Qigong matter in 1997. I was the pioneer to plant my flag in 1997 as no one had ever correlated the two means of natural medicine up to this point in time.
2003 International Conference, Beyond the Dura, the Craniosacral conference ny treacher, John Upledger had started and where he invited me to present. He also was practicing Chinese energetic medicine, he used acupuncture needles often as part of his tool kit.

Outskirts Press: Why did you decide to write this story?

Cloe: I had written a blog since 2009, and progressively as I continued to evolve my work with craniosacral and with qigong, and after writing my dissertation, I realized the evidence that a new modality, which I named CranioSacralQigong®, had emerged. It is not just Craniosacral and it is not just Qigong anymore. It is the combination of these two modalities of self-care and self-healing; combining teachings and paradigms from the east and the west that has merged into one. I have become the developer of this new modality and it is a major breakthrough in consciousness, which must be shared with the world. I always felt that my clients, students, peers, and colleagues were lacking the proper information to understand the relationship between both craniosacral and medical Qigong and I wanted to share simple information about both, to educate and guide people to embrace this flux of evolution with me.

Outskirts Press: How did you get your book published?

Cloe: I wanted to self-publish and after doing my research, I chose Outskirts Press.

Outskirts Press: What types of readers would be interested in this story?

Cloe: All readers, especially late teens, on, and on. Younger people are very interested in learning this, I see how my students are mostly younger people. 20’s, 30’s and 40’s. They are thirsty students. They understand the value of these old teachings and value them. My book is for people who are interested in practicing Qigong and developing an energy practice.
The practice of Qigong is for self before working on others. Craniosacral therapy does not necessarily require a personal practice. Few people would want to start a practice later in life, although many older folks in China like to practice Tai Chi.

In my book, I explain the difference between Qigong and tai chi. They are similar but not the same practices. To simplify, Qigong is medical, and tai chi is a martial art. CraniosacralQigong® is medical. We work with the inherent self-corrective process and support it. Craniosacral therapy has been evolving in this direction, and the teachers have guided us to develop a relationship with this part of ourselves. Still, there is more to it, a lot more. And unless we practice a valid practice, we cannot quite get in touch with it. We need access to Qi, and to get access to Qi, we must practice a valid practice and be disciplined about it.

“If you don’t practice, it does not exist.” Dr. Cloe Couturier, DMQ

So, it is a discipline, and if you want to develop a good practice that keeps growing you and with you, you’d better know it is valid. It is like an investment, and there are better investments than others. You want the highest yield on your investment, knowing with certainty that you will get plenty of return on this time and the priority you will choose to invest to receive the return. It is a discipline.

After observing other teachings that lack this respected transmission of thousands of years, it appears to be like “apprentice sorcerers,” partially rooted. Teachings not rooted with strong roots won’t grow very strong.

I stand on the shoulders of these teachers who have guided me and helped me grow from these roots and teachings, both from the craniosacral works, starting as an osteopath and with the instructions from the Qigong masters.

The foundation of my book lies in history, science, and legality. CranioSacralQigong® is a safe and sound practice.

I share many case histories from people who have evolved with me and continue to do so over the years. I continue to witness the quality of health and well-being of people who have worked with me over the years. It is astonishing as it keeps evolving, and it feels supernatural.
We must share CraniosSacralQigong® with the world.
People need to know what is possible for their lives.

Outskirts Press: What is special about your book?  

Cloe: Like most of the greatest teachers who have evolved health and healing consciousness, there seems to be a story behind this evolutionary process. There is some sort of a catalyst that will lead the practitioner. This lead progressively becomes a path. It is bigger than us, the path takes us, shows us, moves us, the right people come into our lives, the experiences manifest in such ways that we can feel inside that there is more than a common experience. We get to touch the supernatural, it is so much bigger than us, both the person, and the practitioner. We are moved from the inside out with high velocity.

Outskirts Press: What differentiates it from other books in the same category?

Cloe: It is a breakthrough in human consciousness.
I have aligned both the legality and the science in this book, which makes it valid.
There are so many self-help books out there and most are created out of thin air, with great marketing and advertising.
I have always followed teachers who aligned with science and that have a lineage with deep roots underneath them.

These teachings are transmitted from master to students. These teachings are mostly secrets. There are secrets because once you know them, you realize how simple they are, but until you know them, you don’t know how.

I teach the knowhow and I love meeting students where they are at.

Not everybody will receive the same information upon reading my book, it depends on their own evolutionary process.

When the student is ready, the teacher appears. I am a very advanced teacher, yet I can wake anyone to the power of their consciousness when they will read my book as I made it available for anyone to read them. It is an easy read.

Outskirts Press: Have you published any other books? Do you plan to publish more?

Cloe: I am planning on publishing more, this is Vol.2.

Outskirts Press: How can someone learn more about your book or purchase it?

Cloe: They can check my website craniosacralqigong.com where I write more about it.

Outskirts Press: Thanks for your time, Cloe! We look forward to learning more about you as you visit other bloggers!

Luckily for us, Lionel “L Boogie” Binyard was kind enough to answer a few questions as the tour was getting started so that we can give you a sneak peek into the mind of the creator of One Out Of Ten.

Outskirts Press: Tell us a little bit about One Out Of Ten. What is it about?

Lionel: The book follows the path of Lance who is our main character. It follows life’s ups & downs as Lance navigates life through his Junior year of college. The book takes a nostalgic look back at 1980’s HBCU college life.

Outskirts Press: Why did you decide to write this story?

Lionel: I decided to write the book to reminisce about college life and have a chance to relive the best of times which were the 1980’s. I wanted to give those who were attending college life during that time a chance to relive some of the memories they experienced during that time. And for those that are too young and didn’t get a chance to experience what life was like during those times I wanted to give them some insight as to what life was like and what was going on during 1988-1989.

Outskirts Press: What types of readers would be interested in this story?
Lionel: The readers who would be interested in my book would be those students especially Africa-American who were attending Historically Black College & Universities during that time. Also those readers who are into the 1980’s who would like to reminisce about the music, the fashion, the entertainment, news etc.

Outskirts Press: What is special about your book?  

Lionel: What makes the books special to me is all the references to music and fashion. The music references especially help set the mood and tone for the book. It’s like a late 1980’s playlist of hip hop, R&B and club music.

Outskirts Press: Have you published any other books? Do you plan to publish more?

Lionel: I have not published any other books as of now, however I do have some ideas for new books. I am thinking about working on a sequel to my book One Out Of Ten. I’m also considering some other ideas, such as short stories.

Outskirts Press: What differentiates it from other books in the same category?

Lionel: my book is being told from personal experience and those from family and friends whose shared experiences helped provide the content for the book. Each experience is unique and this provides a fresh and different perspective from other books in the same category.

Outskirts Press: How can someone learn more about your book or purchase it?

Lionel: They can visit my author webpage at Outskirts Press. I am also on Instagram.

Outskirts Press Presents Bob Wilber, author of “How Far?”

Author Bob Wilber is taking his latest book, How Far? on tour – a Virtual Book Tour, that is, with Outskirts Press! Technology has created a wide variety of ways to reach audiences all over the world. All it takes is a little thinking outside the box, and nowadays you can market a self-published book in a variety of affordable and impactful ways. Virtual book tours, for example, are a great way to connect with readers from all corners of the globe, all from the comfort of your own home. Join Bob Wilber and How Far?: A Tale of Determination, DNA, and Drama as they appear in features and interviews (such as the one below) in the weeks and months ahead!


Luckily for us, Bob Wilber was kind enough to answer a few questions as the tour was getting started so that we can give you a sneak peek into the mind of the creator of How Far?.

OP: Tell us a little bit about How Far?. What is it about?

Bob: “How Far?” focuses on two fictional sports characters navigating their way through real life in a factual setting. A “surfer dude” baseball player from Southern California and an overachieving hockey player from Minnesota meet, develop a deep friendship, and learn the lessons of great success and even greater hardship. It is a story of friendship and support, seen through a sports lens.

OP: Why did you decide to write this story?

Bob: After my autobiography “Bats, Balls, & Burnouts” was written and then published by Outskirts Press in 2016, I spent more than a year promoting it around the country to much acclaim and rave reviews. It gave me the confidence to get out of my comfort zone and find the next “thing” for me as an author. It was, in other words, time to find the next writing challenge. I wanted to stretch out into a new genre and put myself into a place of discomfort as I wrote, hoping to feel myself growing as a writer and creator of this sort of stuff. The historical fiction angle seemed to be everything I was looking for. The characters came to me organically, basically out of thin air, as did the story line. Writing it, for basically two years, pretty much consumed me but the two main characters got me through it. I heard their voices in my head, so it almost felt like I was just transcribing versus actually writing fiction. I know these two guys now. They live in my head, rent-free!

OP: What types of readers would be interested in this story?
Bob: I sure hoped it would be for everyone who loves a tale of success, hardship, challenges, emotion, glory, and failure, all wrapped up in two likable but flawed yet understandable characters from vastly different backgrounds. It is a life book, for readers of all types. So far, the reviews and comments bear that out. It’s not just for sports geeks. There are more life lessons, I think, than their are strikeouts or goals.

OP: What is special about your book?  

Bob: As a former professional athlete (baseball) and a fan of nearly all sports, including hockey, my world has been full of unique people just like my two main fictional characters. I also come from a sports family. I grew up as the son of a former Major League ballplayer who went on to a scouting, coaching, and managing career for decades. My mom was a radio personality, a baseball executive, and then opened her own PR agency. They say you can’t pick your parents, so it’s pretty obvious I won the lottery in that regard. That was all part of growing up in the Wilber family. It’s in my DNA. I know the ball fields and the hockey rinks very well. I can still smell the dirt and the pine tar from every baseball game I ever played, and I know the sound of skates on the ice and checks into the boards deep within me. I know the joy of success and the heartbreak of defeat. I’ve been there. I’ve experienced it. I’ve been at the top of my game and have sunk to depressing lows when the injuries and unforeseen failures brought me crashing down. These two characters and the world around them are very personal to me. In many ways, they are part of me, and I’m part of them.

OP: Have you published any other books? Do you plan to publish more?

Bob: I published my autobiography “Bats, Balls & Burnouts” in 2016 with Outskirts Press, and that success made me more confident in trying something more difficult. I tell people the first book made me realize I wasn’t just a writer. I could be an author. That was an audacious “step up” for me. The new book proved to me that the author title was earned and legitimate. Will there be a third book? I would surely think so and hope so. I’m not sure what it will be yet, and I need to recharge a bit before I think about it. The grind of writing “How Far?” wasn’t just mental, it was also very physical. I ended up in the hospital for five days, just a week or so after finishing primary writing. I’d literally worn myself out and about starved myself of both sustenance and sleep getting it done. I’ve learned to pace myself and take better care of myself because of that. There will be another one, but we’ll just have to find out when I will tackle it and what it will be about.

OP: What differentiates it from other books in the same category?

Bob: The setting is sports, so the other “real” characters and events are often well known and famous. As you might imagine, the amount of research to make that happen was really enormous and time consuming. For months on end, it felt more like I was just a researcher instead of a writer, but it all paid off. The two main characters weave their way through this real world as if they are truly part of it, while they are clearly part of each other’s lives. Because of the research, what goes on around them and in their lives is very real and very historic.

OP: How can someone learn more about your book or purchase it?

Bob: They can head to bobwilber.net to order both books on Amazon and learn all about the author who created them.

OP: Thanks for your time, Bob! We look forward to learning more about you as you visit other bloggers!

Luckily for us, Mark Loughman was kind enough to answer a few questions as the tour was getting started so that we can give you a sneak peek into the mind of the creator of Before the Moon: A Complete History of the New World Order.

OP: Tell us a little bit about Before the Moon: A Complete History of the New World Order. What is it about?

Mark: My book is about a race of aliens that installed the moon to trap mankind into a matrix of the five senses. They are nearing their endgame, which is a one-world government that will supersede any sovereign nation’s laws and creates an open-air prison for humanity.

OP: Why did you decide to write this story?

Mark: As more and more false flags were perpetrated on the global
community and the “leaders” imposed further restrictions dressed up as a way of keeping us secure, I knew that I needed to try to alert the populous of this slide into a dystopian nightmare.

OP: What types of readers would be interested in this story?
Mark: Anyone who would choose freedom over tyranny and is awakening to the fact that there is an attempt at a global coup taking place will be interested in this book. If that isn’t of interest, it illustrates a foolproof plan of how to become a millionaire.

OP: Have you published any other books? Do you plan to publish more?

OP: How can someone learn more about your book or purchase it?

Mark: My book can be purchased through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc.

OP: Thanks for your time, Mark! We look forward to learning more about you as you visit other bloggers!
