“This whole experience has been brilliant. I have never written a book so didn’t know what to expect. Uphill is incredibly emotional. The stories are real and I have been torn to pieces. Writing it, editing it and editing again for printing was hard work. We got there. I am just in awe, honestly. Speechless… Thank you. It has been a privilege. I have written the first chapter of my next book, a fictional thriller. Fantastic. I am shocked and humbled.” — Geoffrey Bott, author of Uphill: An Inspirational Story of Suffering, Greed, Carnage, Immense Courage and Gut-Determination

3 Reasons a Social Media Strategy Can Help Your Book Promotion

With the exploding popularity of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest and other social media platforms, it’s easier than ever to connect with people all around the world — if you know how to do it. Many, if not most, of the people who would want to buy your book are active on at least one social media platform and, better still, promoting yourself as an author on social media usually costs nothing! With today’s social distancing, social media is more important than ever, and here are 3 reasons to take advantage of it right now:

1. A coordinated strategy across all major platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Linked-In, etc.) creates cartloads of credibility.

2. Each platform reaches a somewhat different demographic, so by targeting multiple social media platforms, you increase your potential readership!

3. Right now, Outskirts Press is offering an instant 10% savings on the Social Media Set-Up & Strategy Toolkit. Just enter the promo code socialten during check-out.

The votes are in! The winner of the 2020 Best Book of the Year is Whispers of Love!

Selecting the Outskirts Press Best Book of the Year is no small feat as all of our authors’ works deserves to be recognized. This year, Life in the Morgue by Lance Anderson, Musings from Cowboy Country by George Rhoades, and Whispers of Love by Gina Simone were our top three finalists and we are proud of them and their great achievements.

All three finalists already won 1st Place in their categories at this year’s Colorado Independent Publishers Association’s EVVY Awards, but only one can claim our highest honor as the Outskirts Press Best Book of the Year!

You’ve weighed your choices and voted for your favorites in a public poll on this blog.

And now, drum roll please. The 2020 Outskirts Press Best Book of the Year is… Whispers of Love by Gina Simone. Congratulations, Gina!

Whispers of Love

Death is never final — and you are never alone …From a young age, Gina knew she was different. She could never safely share her reality with her family — the reality that she could see and communicate with Spirit. But as she matured, she realized her life’s calling as a Spirit Medium was to help people connect with deceased loved ones. With warm, witty honesty, Gina shares landmark moments in her own life — from embracing the gift that was so misunderstood in her early life, to the devastating death of her 27-year-old son. Whispers of Love will introduce you to the messages, signs, and specific ways that Spirit and loved ones share their language of love. Are you struggling with storms in your life that you can’t overcome or has the weight of unbearable grief brought your life to a halt? With understanding messages from Spirit and your loved ones always around, finally hope can arise from heartbreak. Truly inspired, Whispers of Love compassionately introduces you to a deep exploration of why we are here, how to connect with Spirit, and how we can find meaning in life’s hardest challenges. Gina teaches us the impressive lesson that remaining frozen in pain is not the path to freedom. We must embrace our lives with Spirit on board so that every step can unfold in Divine order, with less drama and perhaps even a new found perspective on grief.

About Author Gina Simone

Gina Simone is a Spirit Medium certified through the Forever Family Foundation. At the age of 11, she began to notice and feel Spirit and energy around her. Not knowing what these gifts were, she always felt different and isolated. A traumatic pool accident with her toddler son catapulted her into finding the meaning behind life, Spirit, lessons, and karma. She left a comfortable corporate finance career to answer her calling to connect you with your loved ones and with your own innate intuition and higher consciousness. She has been a featured medium on Gwyneth Paltrow’s GOOP.com, has been voted Long Island Best Medium several years in a row, and is also a featured medium on WBLI 106.1 morning show.
