The Man Came and Took it Away by W.G. Bowser

Repossessions

The first true story of life inside the repossession field!

One of the most electrifying and significant documents ever written about the repossession field, “THE MAN CAME AND TOOK IT AWAY” is the authentic story of this controversial profession as seen through the eyes of the dynamic man who owned the world’s largest agency. Bill Bowser, who spent 45 years battling drug pushers, hardcore criminals, sexual deviates, police harassment, deadbeats and even the Mafia, now has disclosed with horrific clarity the dangerous, intriguing, challenging, baffling and outrageous situations which the repossessor meets in an average day’s work. He has repossessed everything from hearing aids on deceased persons, to airliners, and everything in between, including cars,trucks, tractors, pigs, dogs,boats, wooden legs, buildings, tombstones and stallions.

Bowser, probably the most dedicated man ever to enter this field, was determined to get every job done, regardless of personal danger. While performing what perhaps is the most hush-hush, but very necessary, task involved in the preservation of the financial structure of the U.S., death was his ever-present companion. Bowser has been pistol-whipped, shot at, run off the highway at high speeds and burned out, but never was stopped, not even for a day.

First published in 1972. Newly republished with Outskirts Press in 2011.

We were lucky enough for Bill (W.G.) to stop by and answer a few questions about his book and the Outskirts Press publishing experience.

OP: What made you decide that self-publishing would be the best way to publish your book?

“I was told I had a lot of stories and should write a book in 1970, so I did. That book was self-published. I ran out of those books and couldn’t get anymore. I was getting so many request for books that I decided to redo my book and re-publish it.”

OP: Why did you decide to publish with Outskirts Press?

“My wife, daughter and I looked into several self-publishing companies. My daughter found Outskirts and it seemed to us that Outskirts had a lot more to offer than any of the other companies, at a much more reasonable price.”

OP: Can you share a bit about your book promotion strategy?

“I know a lot of people, and it seems that even more people know me. Through friends and several organizations that I’m affiliated with, I have been able to set up four book signing events so far. (One has already taken place and was very successful.) Since the book came out I have also been asked to give several speeches, which I feel will give me opportunities for book sales. I am also thinking about advertising in several magazines.”

OP: Describe your book in 140 characters or less.

The Man Came And Took It Away is an autobiography of my career as a repossessor in the early days, 1955 to 1970.”

OP: How long did it take you to write your book?

“It took about a year and a half to write the book, although it was not a full time endeavor.”

OP: Are you planning to publish any other books?

“Possibly. If this book does fairly well, I might write another book which would be my career from 1970 to my retirement in 2002. I still have a lot of stories and experiences to tell about.”

Here is one of this month’s bestselling authors:

A Glimpse into the Inner Workings of My God by Michael L. Watson

What Organized Religions Don’t Know About Your God

Like no other book in history A Glimpse Into the Inner Workings of My God is a 21st century book on personalizing your relationship with your God and discovering “inner peace” in a world at war with itself! Each day’s new discoveries collide with humanity’s struggle to find its moral conscience.

Natural disasters with tragic consequences are adding insult to injury as powerful drug resistant diseases serve as constant reminders of just how fragile creatures God intended us to be. With so much cruelty, hatefulness, insanely driven violence, and greed in the world, today’s true believers in God are discovering that organized religions are ill-equipped to serve humanity’s insatiable need to better understand the “whys” of God’s nature.

Believers and non-believers in God want to know why endless struggles create more pain and suffering than transitory joy? Did God create evolution or did evolution create God? Are there reasons other than blind faith to believe in an afterlife? Throughout the book, I expose my human frailties, that when combined with spiritual materialistic virtues of reason, intuitive knowledge, and humility, will help point the way for better understanding God’s purpose for you in this life.

With chapters such as “God’s SOUL: Source Of Ultimate Love” and “CHANGE: Century that Humankind Acknowledges that Nature is God’s path to Eternity,” your soul will come alive with a “reality-based” euphoria as your spiritual journey leads you to a one-of-a-kind personal relationship with your God! By the end of the book, your perception of organized religion’s impact upon your relationship with God will forever be changed.
