At Outskirts Press, we are extremely proud of our authors’ many accomplishments including raving reviews, prestigious awards, and even full-length movies. We have featured author Amy Jordan several times on this blog for her 1st Place EVVY Award and most recently for the debut of Amy’s Victory Dance, a documentary film based on her inspirational autobiographical book, Dance Because You Can (a 2019 Outskirts Press Best Book of the Year Finalist).
As the publisher of Amy’s books, Dance Because You Can and 26 Tips FOR Easier Living with Diabetes, we are delighted with her success and proud to be part of her story. Please watch the video testimonial below to learn more about Amy’s experience publishing with Outskirts Press, the only A+ rated and #1-rated self-publishing company according to the Better Business Bureau and Top Consumer Reviews respectively.
Are you ready to publish your masterpiece and join the ranks of award-winning authors like Amy Jordan?
It wasn’t too long ago we shared the news that Outskirts Press author Stephen S. Janes had a movie in the works based upon his book, The Prayer Wheel Odyssey; that Skip Stover had a movie in the works based upon his Outskirts Press book, The Ghost of Governor’s Bridge; and that A-list actor Chris Pine had just finished starring in a TNT mini-series based upon author Fauna Hodel’s remarkable memoir, One Day She’ll Darken, initially published by Outskirts Press before being picked up by a traditional publisher in time for the series premiere.
Here we are again, this time to announce another exciting project in the works, this one an inspirational documentary based upon the real-life trauma and triumph of one of Outskirts Press’s most motivating and captivating authors, speakers, and coaches: Amy Jordan.
The full-length documentary is based upon Amy Jordan’s autobiographical self-help book, Dance Because You Can: 5 Steps to Transform Trauma into Triumph, and is nearing completion. It is directed by two-time Emmy Nominee Brian Thomas, who has previously worked with Michael Jackson, Pink, Jaimie Foxx, and Beyonce, among many others.
Dance Because You Can is a direct pathway to getting through any obstacle and transforming trauma into triumph. Amy Jordan is a critically acclaimed award-winning author, speaker, coach, and choreographer, and she passionately walks you through her five-step system of D.A.N.C.E. By the end you have a tool kit that works for pretty much any adversity in life.
Her professional company, The Victory Dance Project, has honored legends of dance and stage including Chita Rivera. Jordan’s work has been featured in The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, NY Post, and FORTUNE magazine among others. Amy is an in- demand motivational speaker and coach speaking for groups from ten to ten thousand, including corporations, organizations, youth programs, leadership development, health organizations, and schools.
Her speaking, interviewing, and promotional circuit for both the book and the upcoming documentary is too extensive to list here, but you can find all sorts of interviews, behind-the-scenes showcases, and dance performances on Vimeo, including the trailer for the documentary, which you can watch right here:
What a true inspiration she is, to authors, dancers, and, in fact, to human beings everywhere. Way to go, Amy! Outskirts Press is with you. Thank you for sharing your amazing story with the world.
