Luckily for us, Maisha Daniels 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 In The Event I Die: Instruction Manual and Information Guide In The Event I Pass Away.

Outskirts Press: Tell us a little bit about In The Event I Die: Instruction Manual and Information Guide In The Event I Pass Away. What is it about?

Maisha: My book is a wealth transfer tool where individuals can list their beneficiaries, life policies, properties owned, etc. all in one spot. Loved ones no longer have to wait to see what comes in the mail to take care of final preparations; all assets can be found in this book.

Outskirts Press: Why did you decide to write this story?

Maisha: My paternal grandmother passed away in August of 2021. She was the matriarch and business woman of the family. Unfortunately, when she passed, we had no idea where her life insurance polies were, bank accounts, etc. It was a stressful time on top of grieving and I thought to myself this is ridiculous, there should be something where someone can keep a log of their assets and important information. That is exactly where the inspiration for me to write this book came from.

Outskirts Press: What types of readers would be interested in this story?
Maisha: Business owners, grandparents, adult children, etc. This book will honestly help so many people, especially those who don’t have wills in place or are unable to afford an attorney.

Outskirts Press: What is special about your book?  

Maisha: With my background in life insurance and the experience in losing my grandmother, this book was carefully thought out to fill in the gaps or missing pieces that people may have not thought about.

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

Maisha: This book gives so many different types of assets that people may not have thought of such as passwords and pin numbers listed, different financial apps people may have. It also has a page where you can have your wishes notarized.

Outskirts Press: Have you published any other books? Do you plan to publish more?

Maisha: I haven’t published any other books, but I am in the process of writing a book on growing a business. I managed portfolios as a wealth manager for clients that had net worth upwards of 5 million. I assisted in growing their businesses and assisting with strategies for income and growth. I will be pouring my experience and expertise into this book.

Join Lionel “L Boogie” Binyard and One Out Of Ten as they appear in features and interviews (such as the one below) in the weeks and months ahead!


Luckily for us, Lionel “L Boogie” Binyard 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 One Out Of Ten.

Outskirts Press: Tell us a little bit about One Out Of Ten. What is it about?

Lionel: The book follows the path of Lance who is our main character. It follows life’s ups & downs as Lance navigates life through his Junior year of college. The book takes a nostalgic look back at 1980’s HBCU college life.

Outskirts Press: Why did you decide to write this story?

Lionel: I decided to write the book to reminisce about college life and have a chance to relive the best of times which were the 1980’s. I wanted to give those who were attending college life during that time a chance to relive some of the memories they experienced during that time. And for those that are too young and didn’t get a chance to experience what life was like during those times I wanted to give them some insight as to what life was like and what was going on during 1988-1989.

Outskirts Press: What types of readers would be interested in this story?
Lionel: The readers who would be interested in my book would be those students especially Africa-American who were attending Historically Black College & Universities during that time. Also those readers who are into the 1980’s who would like to reminisce about the music, the fashion, the entertainment, news etc.

Outskirts Press: What is special about your book?  

Lionel: What makes the books special to me is all the references to music and fashion. The music references especially help set the mood and tone for the book. It’s like a late 1980’s playlist of hip hop, R&B and club music.

Outskirts Press: Have you published any other books? Do you plan to publish more?

Lionel: I have not published any other books as of now, however I do have some ideas for new books. I am thinking about working on a sequel to my book One Out Of Ten. I’m also considering some other ideas, such as short stories.

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

Lionel: my book is being told from personal experience and those from family and friends whose shared experiences helped provide the content for the book. Each experience is unique and this provides a fresh and different perspective from other books in the same category.

Outskirts Press: How can someone learn more about your book or purchase it?

Lionel: They can visit my author webpage at Outskirts Press. I am also on Instagram.
Additionally my book One Out Of Ten is on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Outskirts Press: Thanks for your time, Lionel! We look forward to learning more about you as you visit other bloggers!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Lionel “L Boogie” Binyard is an author, entrepreneur, business owner and writer. He has been writing for over 20 years.

The Tickle Tarantula

by John Morgan

 

(5 out of 5 Stars – 1 Customer Reviews)

Price: $15.95 Paperback & $26.95 Hardback

From a young age the power of a great story has always had a powerful impact on my life; whether it was my grandmother reading the classics or the Fair Haven Loafers and Liars Club in upstate New York keeping local history alive from the bench in front of a two pump Sinclair gas station. A lifelong passion for volunteering as coach, scout leader, robotics mentor, and historical docent became my outlet for inspiring youth through story telling. Now with my first grandchild on the near horizon it was time to put some of those stories in print.

Outskirts Press Presents Bob Wilber, author of “How Far?”

Author Bob Wilber is taking his latest book, How Far? on tour – a Virtual Book Tour, that is, with Outskirts Press! Technology has created a wide variety of ways to reach audiences all over the world. All it takes is a little thinking outside the box, and nowadays you can market a self-published book in a variety of affordable and impactful ways. Virtual book tours, for example, are a great way to connect with readers from all corners of the globe, all from the comfort of your own home. Join Bob Wilber and How Far?: A Tale of Determination, DNA, and Drama as they appear in features and interviews (such as the one below) in the weeks and months ahead!


Luckily for us, Bob Wilber 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 How Far?.

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

Bob: “How Far?” focuses on two fictional sports characters navigating their way through real life in a factual setting. A “surfer dude” baseball player from Southern California and an overachieving hockey player from Minnesota meet, develop a deep friendship, and learn the lessons of great success and even greater hardship. It is a story of friendship and support, seen through a sports lens.

OP: Why did you decide to write this story?

Bob: After my autobiography “Bats, Balls, & Burnouts” was written and then published by Outskirts Press in 2016, I spent more than a year promoting it around the country to much acclaim and rave reviews. It gave me the confidence to get out of my comfort zone and find the next “thing” for me as an author. It was, in other words, time to find the next writing challenge. I wanted to stretch out into a new genre and put myself into a place of discomfort as I wrote, hoping to feel myself growing as a writer and creator of this sort of stuff. The historical fiction angle seemed to be everything I was looking for. The characters came to me organically, basically out of thin air, as did the story line. Writing it, for basically two years, pretty much consumed me but the two main characters got me through it. I heard their voices in my head, so it almost felt like I was just transcribing versus actually writing fiction. I know these two guys now. They live in my head, rent-free!

OP: What types of readers would be interested in this story?
Bob: I sure hoped it would be for everyone who loves a tale of success, hardship, challenges, emotion, glory, and failure, all wrapped up in two likable but flawed yet understandable characters from vastly different backgrounds. It is a life book, for readers of all types. So far, the reviews and comments bear that out. It’s not just for sports geeks. There are more life lessons, I think, than their are strikeouts or goals.

OP: What is special about your book?  

Bob: As a former professional athlete (baseball) and a fan of nearly all sports, including hockey, my world has been full of unique people just like my two main fictional characters. I also come from a sports family. I grew up as the son of a former Major League ballplayer who went on to a scouting, coaching, and managing career for decades. My mom was a radio personality, a baseball executive, and then opened her own PR agency. They say you can’t pick your parents, so it’s pretty obvious I won the lottery in that regard. That was all part of growing up in the Wilber family. It’s in my DNA. I know the ball fields and the hockey rinks very well. I can still smell the dirt and the pine tar from every baseball game I ever played, and I know the sound of skates on the ice and checks into the boards deep within me. I know the joy of success and the heartbreak of defeat. I’ve been there. I’ve experienced it. I’ve been at the top of my game and have sunk to depressing lows when the injuries and unforeseen failures brought me crashing down. These two characters and the world around them are very personal to me. In many ways, they are part of me, and I’m part of them.

OP: Have you published any other books? Do you plan to publish more?

Bob: I published my autobiography “Bats, Balls & Burnouts” in 2016 with Outskirts Press, and that success made me more confident in trying something more difficult. I tell people the first book made me realize I wasn’t just a writer. I could be an author. That was an audacious “step up” for me. The new book proved to me that the author title was earned and legitimate. Will there be a third book? I would surely think so and hope so. I’m not sure what it will be yet, and I need to recharge a bit before I think about it. The grind of writing “How Far?” wasn’t just mental, it was also very physical. I ended up in the hospital for five days, just a week or so after finishing primary writing. I’d literally worn myself out and about starved myself of both sustenance and sleep getting it done. I’ve learned to pace myself and take better care of myself because of that. There will be another one, but we’ll just have to find out when I will tackle it and what it will be about.

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

Bob: The setting is sports, so the other “real” characters and events are often well known and famous. As you might imagine, the amount of research to make that happen was really enormous and time consuming. For months on end, it felt more like I was just a researcher instead of a writer, but it all paid off. The two main characters weave their way through this real world as if they are truly part of it, while they are clearly part of each other’s lives. Because of the research, what goes on around them and in their lives is very real and very historic.

OP: How can someone learn more about your book or purchase it?

Bob: They can head to bobwilber.net to order both books on Amazon and learn all about the author who created them.

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