When the Mission Includes Excitement and Food…The Pug Is There!

Author Poll: Milton King Needs Your Help With His Book Cover

Milton King is self-publishing a book with Outskirts Press, and he wants your help deciding on his book cover.

Book Summary

Think Moderates draws on two social truths: 1) we cannot resolve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them (Albert Einstein) and 2) the problems resulting from the actions of extremists can only be rooted out by strong, persistent, and determined actions by moderates (Martin Luther King Jr.). Thus, Think Moderates points out that to offset the problem-creating thinking currently driving public debate, we must recast public debate. We must draw moderates into the debate and give prominence to the problem-solving and reconciling behaviors they typically exemplify in group settings. And we must also give prominence to the kind of thinking moderates bring to the table.

About the Author

While a pastor and community leader for more than 20 years, Milton King—a consummate moderate himself—has worked extensively with moderates, progressives, and conservatives to achieve goals important to selected churches and communities in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. Out of the crucible of that experience, along with countless conversations on current issues with other moderates, has emerged the ideas and insights in this book. He has a BA in history, a Masters of Divinity, and a MA in English language and literature, and has pursued social work studies.

Author Poll: Joachim Kempin Needs Help Choosing a Cover

Joachim Kempin is self-publishing a book with Outskirts Press, and he wants your help deciding on his book cover.

Book Summary

Voting in our democracy is a privilege. 130 million or more will probably be cast this year to determine the next US President. Mostly along party lines. Much fewer based on consciously evaluating of how many of the political promises, made during the election campaign, cannot be kept. In particular by Hillary. A political operator from yesterday, who seeks this office with cunning rhetoric and despair. A pied piper, who supposedly fights for the downtrodden. She does not possess a magic flute like the original one. Instead she too often uses quite angry sounding siren songs to lure voters into a realm of free flowing milk and honey provided by her utopian-style government—causing hurt for the many, who have to pay for her delusions. A fairy tale that has been going on for over seven decades. It led to nearly twenty trillions of debt for this nation and created an entitlement class, which is endangering the American dream for our children. To hell with self-reliance and personal responsibilities is this modern pied piper’s motto. The government will take care of you and plan your future. If you want to wind up living in a mind-numbing political atmosphere and accept handouts forever, please vote for this progressive siren and her party. They will be happy to be your puppet masters! If you agree with the founding fathers of this nation and demand less government and utmost individual freedom, this collection of fairy tales might sway you to reconsider.

About the Author

This is JK’s third book after publishing an insider book about mighty Microsoft titled Resolve and Fortitude and the fiction novel Pope Francis I—Crusader and Knight of Christ. A German immigrant and an astute observer of the political landscape he is retired and lives as a happily married family man in the North Western part of the United States.

Author Poll: Carole Molchany Needs Your Help With Her Book Cover

Carole Molchany is self-publishing a book with Outskirts Press, and she wants your help deciding on her book cover.

Book Summary

The Silent Speak Volumes follows one woman as she proves that painfully shy children can become successful, even when raised by an emotionally unstable mother.

In The Silent Speak Volumes, a mother responds to her grown child’s question: “Why don’t we know more about your childhood, Mom?” This sweet yet painfully honest memoir examines one woman’s formative years, in which her mother’s words and actions were not always rooted in loving guidance. Despite her resulting low self-esteem and crippling shyness, the author is able to overcome the emotional manipulation of her past in order to find success and happiness. Her memoir was written for her children, but it’s a story that will resonate with everyone.

About the Author

Carole Molchany was raised by an emotionally unstable parent, but she rose above, thanks to the influences of strong individuals who offered guidance, an ear, an arm around the shoulder, or just a place at their table. Carole is from New Jersey, and currently lives in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Please take a look at two possible covers below and then vote on the choice you recommend for Carole.

Author Poll: Janie Nugent Wants Your Help With Her Cover

Janie Nugent is self-publishing a book with Outskirts Press, and she wants your help deciding her upcoming book cover.

Book Summary:

Adopt a rescue dog and change both your lives!

Doug was eight years old when he arrived at a rescue facility, confused and scared. His owner had passed away, and her final wish was for Doug to have another loving family. She had raised and loved him since he was a five-week-old puppy and knew he would make another family as happy as he had made her. When eight-year-old Michael and his family adopted Doug from the shelter, a happy new chapter of his life began!

A Dog for Michael is the true story of Doug’s adoption and his new life. Anyone who spent time with Doug fell in love with this sweet, funny, and joyful dog. He has traveled throughout the USA with Michael and made friends in every city and town he visited. Many people have been motivated to adopt adult dogs after getting to know him.

Shelter dogs are desperate for a home, and adult dogs make wonderful companions. If you can’t adopt, consider supporting your local adoption facility, either financially or by volunteering—you will make a difference in the lives of the animals and the generous, committed people who run these organizations.

Author Bio:

Janie Nugent always dreamed of becoming a writer. As a lifelong supporter of animals both personally and financially, sharing Doug’s story was the perfect reason to write her first book. The opportunity to raise awareness and provide financial support with proceeds from this book is a dream come true.
