The Votes Are In! The Winner of Our 2019 “Show Us Your Love” Contest Is….

Each year, we at Outskirts Press are impressed — and overwhelmed — by your entries in our annual “Show Us Your Love” contest which celebrates Valentine’s Day and Self-Publishing. The level of interest we see affirms our dedication to providing a rich and varied range of self-publishing services to authors looking to take the next step toward publication … and it inspires us to outdo ourselves, year after year, in making your dreams a reality. Thank you, one and all, for the love you’ve shown. Your success is our success.

And without further ado, the first-place winner is … Peter Springer, author of They Call Me Mom.

In his video, Peter shares his positive experience publishing with Outskirts Press and some valuable book marketing advice. “One thing I’m finding throughout this process is you can’t be afraid to put yourself out there.”

Peter not only recorded a 10 minute video but submitted a selfie sporting his custom book t-shirt and displaying his promotional posters and bookmarks. For his efforts, Peter received the most votes and wins a brand new, HP Touch Screen Laptop Computer. Congratulations, Peter!

As an elementary teacher for thirty-one years in grades 2-6, Pete Springer has always been passionate about mentoring and supporting teachers. After spending a year in Cynthia Van Vleck’s classroom as her student teacher, he knew that he had discovered his true passion. He received the Excellence in Teaching Award in 2006 and served as a master teacher to four student teachers of his own. He is married to another lifelong educator, Debbie, who was a preschool teacher and director. They are the proud parents of a son, Ryan, who is doing his teaching as a college football coach.

Who Will You Inspire Today?
Teachers face this challenge and responsibility each day, but in the process, the author discovers that his students can also have a profound influence on him. Pete Springer takes you on his memorable thirty-one-year journey in education as an elementary school teacher and offers the many valuable life and teaching lessons he learned along the way. Get ready to laugh out loud at some of the humorous and memorable experiences that all teachers face, feel inspired by the inherent goodness of children, and appreciate the importance of developing a sense of teamwork among the staff. Learn valuable tips for working with children, parents, fellow staff members, and administrators. This book is ideal for young teachers, but also a reminder to all educators of the importance and responsibility of being a role model.
