Luckily for us, Kerry 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 Poems of Love, From My Heart to Yours Vol. 1.

OP: Tell us a little bit about Poems of Love, From My Heart to Yours Vol.1. What is it about?

Kerry: My book is about two people in love who currently live on two different continents, who just happen to be my fiancée, Rukayatu and me.

OP: Why did you decide to write this story?

Kerry: I met Rukayatu, my fiancee, online. We started to talk and eventually fell deeply in love. During one of our conversations I told her that I was a poet. So, she asked me to prove that to her. So, I did. The first poem that I wrote for her was titled “My Ruky Love.” Since that first poem, the number of poems that I have written for her is now well over three hundred. Thus, comes my first book of love poems, all written for the woman that I love. And the love story of Kerry and Rukayatu is yet unfolding.

OP: How did you get your book published?

Kerry: I browsed the internet and investigated a few publishers and decide that I would self-publish through Outskirts Press. I am very satisfied with that decision.

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

Kerry: Any and every one with a heart for love. My book is not only tells a story through poetry about two people in love who are separated by an ocean, it also delves into the subject of love on many levels and the different facets of love in general.

OP: What is special about your book?

Kerry: The one thing that makes my book special is the fact that it contains my feelings, my emotions, as well as the contents of my heart in the form of written words of poetry that I am literally sending from my heart to Rukayatu’s heart. Thus the title, Poems of Love, From My Heart to Yours. My book is also special because it is allowing the world to look inside of mine and Rukayatu’s love.

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

Kerry: The main thing that differentiates my book of love poems from all the others is the fact that Kerry and Rukayatu are not fictitious characters, but instead, two people who are deeply in love with each other and their sole goal is to make the distance and the time between them vanish and one day look into each other eyes and say these three words, I love you. One other thing that I will add. Yes, my book is about the love that exists between Rukayatu and I. But love, in all senses of the word, in my heart is my passion. If I were to ever give a speech or speak at a social gathering the only subject that I would care to speak about is love. In the synopsis of my book I wrote these words “Love is the greatest power on earth, but mankind, as of yet, has failed to harness it and reap its true rewards.” To me those are not just words, in a way, they are the essence of my very being.

OP: Have you published any other books?

Kerry: No, Poems of Love, From My Heart to Yours, is my first book to be published. There will be other volumes that will continue to tell the story of Kerry’s and Rukayatu’s love. Volumes 2 and 3 will be published in the near future. They have already been written.

OP: Do you plan to publish more?

Kerry: Yes, many more. As a matter of fact, Rukayatu and I will be jointly writing and publishing the complete story of our love in the form of a romance novel that will give a detailed account of all the things that we have gone through in the quest to have our love.

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

miPhoneography by Eric Raddatz

Technology has made it easier than ever to reach wider audiences no matter where they are in the world. All it takes is a little thinking outside the box and you can market a self-published book in creative ways, affordably and impactfully. This is where book tours come in: Tours are a great way to connect with your readers and technology has made them easier and more cost effective than ever!

Author Eric Raddatz is taking his latest book miPhoneography, on tour — a Virtual Book Tour with Outskirts Press. This will allow Eric to take his book into the far corners of the globe, all from the comfort of his own home! Keep an eye out for Eric’s book as he will be featured on several blogs over the weeks and months ahead!


Luckily for us, Eric 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 miPhoneography.

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

Eric: It is made up of an eclectic group of images made with iPhone technology and editing apps such as Snapseed.

OP: Why did you decide to write this story?

Eric: I have been a photographer since the 70’s utilizing 35mm analog and digital SLR. In capturing the images, it has been me alone, a selfish endeavor, in the belief that I, like each of us, need to have something that is completely my own. But I don’t want to work in a vacuum, so I have entered contests, displayed in group and solo exhibitions in the US and the EU and have received a number of awards. This work reflects the changes in our world that were brought about by the smartphone cameras’ growth and enhancements. I wanted to share my vision beyond the social media outlets — that large amounts of equipment are not necessary in creating fine art photography. Like the song says, “Love the one you’re with!”

OP: How did you get your book published?

Eric: I looked up self-publishing on Google and found Outskirts Press and inquired. They returned stating their interest. They were great. You actually get to talk to a real person who guides you through the process from beginning to publishing, and even after, and all with patience and grace. Also, you get to spend a goodly amount of money but it was most definitely worth it.

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

Eric: I hope that any person into photography whether SLR or smartphone would
enjoy these pictures and the work involved. But also, any person who has given some thought to using their device beyond the snapshot and selfie would be inspired to step out and share their vision with us (though, granted, I have twisted the selfie for my art)

OP: What is special about your book?

Eric: I have seen any number of books or magazines devoted to the iPhone or the Droid in teaching the how and why. My vision is to share the result of my exploration and vision. The exposure beyond the community of mobile-artist to the general audience might truly bring new life and ways of seeing things differently.

OP: What differentiates your book?

Eric: It’s Mine

OP: Have you published any other books?

Eric: Yes. My first book was published through Blurb. It is the sharing of images and words of my mother’s passing “Memories Dying Dream.” I shot it using a flip phone which of course has its limitations, but I was able to surmount them and produce a meaningful and heartfelt experience both as a book and an exhibition. The second one I also produced through Blurb, “Eric L. Raddatz Photography: A Retrospective.” In it are images from my days using 35mm SLR and Digital SLR plus some early iPhone, both of the cameras and lenses are tucked away in a drawer of my dresser.

OP: Do you plan to publish more?

Eric: I continue to go out and explore my world through my lense (s) and am always discovering new images and ideas. I love taking time to rework the images to create something totally new. The possibility of additional publications is ever present. I will take it one book at a time.

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

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Eric Raddatz lives in Raleigh, North Carolina with his wife, Bonnie. They have three children who are off on their own adventures. Eric works as Chaplain for Heartland Hospice. Photography has been his way of taking care of himself in the face of the issues that challenge the individuals he serves, finding peace and comfort as he walks the greenways and streets in the world in which he lives.

Here Comes Ingo by Odeta Xheka

Technology has made it easier than ever to reach wider audiences no matter where they are in the world. All it takes is a little thinking outside the box and you can market a self-published book in creative ways, affordably and impactfully. This is where book tours come in: Tours are a great way to connect with your readers, and technology has made them easier and more cost effective than ever!

Author Odeta Xheka is taking her latest book Here Comes Ingo, on tour — a Virtual Book Tour with Outskirts Press. This will allow Odeta to take her book into the far corners of the globe, all from the comfort of her own home! Keep an eye out for Odeta’s book as she will be featured on several blogs over the weeks and months ahead!


Luckily for us, Odeta 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 Here Comes Ingo.

OP: Tell us a little bit about Here Comes Ingo. What is it about?

Odeta: Here Comes Ingo is the story of Ingo, a scarlet macaw who while nursing her eggs in the hole of a dead canopy tree drifts off to sleep and dreams of flying about into the lush evergreen forest she calls home. Ingo’s dream is a beautiful visual story that exemplifies a progression of thinking leading towards love, kindness and inclusion because the world needs more empathetic, understanding and tolerant children. At first, things may not seem to make much sense. After all, it is not every day that 4-8-year olds get to come face to face with a shark eating cupcakes with gusto or a merry band of birds & frogs piggybacking on a chubby fish or even a solitary wolf improbably wrapped in a rainbow. Yet, page after page of exquisitely crafted compositions encourage children to resist feeling discouraged or scared in front of the unexpected and the unknown. Much like Ingo, they are to rely on their own ability to embrace what at first may seem strange in order to fully enjoy the book. Equally importantly, Ingo’s flying adventures invite children to put their thinking hats on and figure out what the characters are thinking, feeling and doing thus teaching them about setting, structure flow and attention to detail. As with the best of books, at the conclusion of the story, the journey is not over. Ingo invites children to visit again, and again in order to expand on Ingo’s dream world following into the tradition of classic books such as Good Night, Gorilla, The Adventures of Polo, Tuesday, Where’s Walrus, Sea of Dreams and The Red Book.

OP: Why did you decide to write this story?

Odeta: I believe that all books for children should offer a truthful depiction of reality all the while promoting a positive worldview. Here Comes Ingo is my honest attempt as an artist and a parent of young children to provide my young readers with a set of creative tools that can serve them in the future to push back against intolerance based on fear of the unknown. At the same time, this book is uniquely crafted to embrace children’s imagination and their innate sense of coloring, wonder and fun as they are invited to expand the story by drawing, coloring and painting on the page.

OP: How did you get your book published?

Odeta: This time around, I decided to go the self- publishing route in order to have complete artistic control over the aesthetics of what is for all purposes an art book. I am very happy with the way each paper collage stands out as a unique illustration drenched in superb colors.

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

Odeta: I believe that artistic expression is a crucial part of human development and while Here Comes Ingo is officially intended for 4-8-year olds, this picture book strives to create a sensory experience for the whole family. In conjunction with wall decals available through my art store the book illustrations create an interactive space for children to become the artist, not simply observe the art. Children, parents, grandparents, guardians and sitters alike are encouraged to incorporate Ingo and her friends into their everyday lives through play, crafting, games, writing, coloring, drawing and doodling on each picture. Ideal for kindergarten and grade school children this book may also be especially helpful to teachers who seek out opportunities for art projects, creative writing and other education avenues that grip young readers’ imagination while teaching them valuable lessons about comprehension (look at this picture- what do you think is happening?), predicting (what do you think will happen next?), inferring (what makes you think that?), reasoning (what do you think that happened?), sequencing (what happened first? next? last?)

OP: What is special about your book?

Odeta: The book has a very clear message, that of open mindedness in front of the unknown- a most timely message. At a time when old and young alike are continuously asked to think of the immigrant, the gender fluid, the poor, “the other” in terms that instill fear and confusion, Here Comes Ingo is the type of book that allocates agency to its young readers. The message is clear albeit a bit more direct and maybe a little less preachy than most books for young children. Let’s just say that as a longtime fan of Maurice Sendak and mother to a very inquisitive 8-year-old. boy and 6-year-old. girl I don’t believe in sugar coating reality. To me, this is another way of approaching children with truth, honesty and authenticity. Real life is not just colorful and happy; life also has darkness. I don’t believe we should coddle children and shelter them from life. With this book, I intend to make it safe for children to face things with their eyes open and to accept that things can be confusing and that not “getting” something at first glance is totally acceptable. They are invited to look harder, probe deeper and make sense of what is in front of them.

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

Odeta: Although Here Comes Ingo is technically a picture book for children, it can easily qualify as an art book. This book is a well-orchestrated visual story that familiarizes children with figurative collage, an ancient art technique. Each illustration is a multilayered collage on paper (made by hand) with special attention paid to the Disney-like palette and the carefully orchestrated arrangement of various animal, insects, birds, grass and trees paper cut outs in order to come up with a final composition that is as Surreal as it is imbued in suggestive possibilities. In other words, each book page collage is “a painting made with scissors” as Henri Matisse famously put it in reference to his paper compositions. Here Comes Ingo‘s artistic language is very inclusive and issues an open invitation to the readers to add to the story and take it as far as their imagination can stretch.

OP: Have you published any other books?

Odeta: Yes, years and years ago. It’s a collection of short poems. Although it was written in another land, another language and another cultural & social milieu Bosh Me Te Bardhe (Whitening Emptiness) offers clear parallels with Here Comes Ingo, my most recent book for children. It goes to show that I have always felt a sense of responsibility in tackling “heavy subjects” in order to come up with insightful and honest depictions of reality.

OP: Do you plan to publish more?

Odeta: Most definitely. I am already mapping out (visual) ideas about my next book. I’m at the stage when the giddiness of infinite creative avenues has not yet been dampened by the technical and practical aspects of bringing a book to life so my imagination is going wild. No matter the final direction of this next book, just like Here Comes Ingo, it will extend children the same message of being understanding, tolerant and kind beings.

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

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Odeta Xheka is a mother, visual storyteller and fine artist who is busy raising her children and nurturing her art practice.

Rise of the Gig Leaders by Neil Grant

Technology has made it easier than ever to reach wider audiences no matter where they are in the world. All it takes is a little thinking outside the box and you can market a self-published book in creative ways, affordably and impactfully. This is where book tours come in: Tours are a great way to connect with your readers and technology has made them easier and more cost effective than ever!

Author Neil Grant is taking his latest book Rise of the Gig Leaders: Why Interim Leaders Are Vital In Today’s Organizations, on tour — a Virtual Book Tour with Outskirts Press. This will allow Neil to take his book into the far corners of the globe, all from the comfort of his own home! Keep an eye out for Neil’s book as he will be featured on several blogs over the weeks and months ahead!


Luckily for us, Neil 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 Rise of the Gig Leaders: Why Interim Leaders Are Vital In Today’s Organizations.

OP: Tell us a little bit about Rise of the Gig Leaders. What is it about?

Neil: Change is constant. Organizations are facing a crisis of leading ever-increasing change projects as well as tackling day-to-day operations. Asking internal leaders to take charge of these projects is challenging — they are a finite resource. Consultancies don’t necessarily have the industry or specialist experience to tackle complex change programs. Interim leaders are senior leaders who have held senior leadership roles and who are adept at leading change. An interim leader has no interest in a permanent career with a client organization, but is focused on delivery, pace, and excellence.

Gig Leaders provides a contemporary and thorough review of interim leadership with specific insight into its focus, business case, and potential. The book discusses the context of the gig economy, features testimonials from interim leaders as well as executives who have engaged interim services and provides numerous examples of interim leadership in action. A model is described which articulates interim leadership, competencies are defined which characterize how interims operate, and the distinctive value of interim leaders is featured.

OP: Why did you decide to write this story?

Neil: I have been an interim leader for 17 years. There is a real need for senior leaders to understand the potential of interim leadership as a vital component in their leadership resourcing strategy. Other books on interim leadership are showing their age, and do not provide such a comprehensive analysis of this type of leadership resource for leading change.

OP: How did you get your book published?

Neil: I self-published the book through Outskirts Press.

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

Neil: All organizational leaders (business and non-profit), HR leaders, change leaders, and interim leaders both present and aspiring.

OP: What is special about your book?

Neil: Interim leadership is set in the context of the booming gig economy. The SCILL model© of interim leadership defines the DNA of an interim leader — this gives real insight into the motivation, potential, contribution, and character of an interim leader.

OP: What differentiates your book?

Neil: No other book on interim leadership provides a model that defines the DNA of an interim leader. Gig Leaders incorporates feedback from executives and interim leaders to show both sides of successful relationships. The book provides practical help with the recruitment of interim leaders as well an assessment for leaders to consider their suitability for an interim leadership career.

OP: Have you published any other books?

Neil: No, I have not.

OP: Do you plan to publish more?

Neil: Possibly

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