Amah and Think Beyond The Cause as they appear in features and interviews (such as the one below) in the weeks and months ahead!


Luckily for us, Godfred 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 Think Beyond The Cause.

OP: Tell us a little bit about Think Beyond The Cause. What is it about?

Godfred: How Evil spirits affect humans.

OP: Why did you decide to write this story?

Godfred: My life is a good example of a life frustrated, if not destroyed in many aspects by witchcraft or obstructive spiritual activity. To anyone being told this or listening, this claim will appear laughable and hardly believable. The book explains and shows how possible, real and ongoing, the role of evil spirits is present and responsible for many of humanity’s problems.

OP: How did you get your book published?

Godfred: By doing some research, identifying Outskirts Press, and contacting them for the publication.

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

Godfred: Everyone who is literate will find this book interesting to read and will learn a lot about a much neglected and unsuspecting origin of many problems, and their solutions.

OP: What is special about your book?

Godfred: It opens a window into an invisible world or spiritual realm and makes it possibly visible.

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

Godfred: This is an account of a lived experience, not learned academic knowledge or summarized facts. The book introduces something important that has been erroneously ignored.

OP: Have you published any other books?

Godfred: No, this is my first book.

OP: Do you plan to publish more?

Godfred: Yes.

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

Hitler’s Last Christmas by Donald F. Kilburg, Jr.

Author Donald F. Kilburg, Jr.is taking his latest book Hitler’s Last Christmas: The Day the Entire Mighty Eighth Air Force Joined the Battle of the Bulge 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 Donald F. Kilburg, Jr. and Hitler’s Last Christmas as they appear in features and interviews (such as the one below) in the weeks and months ahead!


Luckily for us, Donald 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 Hitler’s Last Christmas.

OP: Tell us a little bit about Hitler’s Last Christmas. What is it about?

Donald: It is a documentary based on archived records and the firsthand accounts of the airmen who participated in the largest aerial bombing mission in history, one that involved every flyable bomber and fighter in the 8th Air Force. The mission enabled ground troops to turn the tide against Hitler’s surprise last major offensive of the war, his surprise Ardennes Offensive…

OP: Why did you decide to write this story?

Donald: Actually, I was “volunteered” to write it. My late father was a member of the 487th Bomb Group and served as a Bombardier on a B-17. He, like many of the WWII veterans, didn’t talk much about the war after it was over. Eventually, he began to look for and contact some he served with. Then he discovered the 487th Bomb Group Association, a group of the vets and their families who met annually around the country to renew old friendships and share old stories. At one of these reunions, there was a discussion about a most frightening mission that many of the surviving members had participated in. A member said, “We know that the Christmas Eve Mission in 1944 was the largest mission of the war and likely the largest mission ever since. We remember it because we were there. We suffered serious losses. We lost dear friends. Many of us still have nightmares about it. But the full story has never been told. Someone needs to write it.” I was sitting next to my Dad. Within seconds he grabbed my wrist and was waving my hand in the air. “My son will do it. He’s done lots of writing. He’ll do it.” How do you say “no” at that point with a room full of octogenarians applauding? So that is how I “decided” to research and write the book. I learned that my Dad had been the Lead Bombardier on this mission after General Castle’s plane was blown out of the air. I learned for the first time that my Dad, his pilot, and navigator received the Distinguished Flying Cross for their actions that day. I am proud to document and preserve the memory of these great men.

OP: How did you get your book published?

Donald: I concluded early on that I would self-publish. My enthusiastic audience was extremely interested in seeing their story and they were quickly reaching the end of their lives. I researched a number of publishers, evaluated their services, checked their reviews, and contracted with Outskirts Press.

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

Donald: This is clearly a “niche” book. It details the events of the day and is full of firsthand stories from many who were there. These are definitely of interest to World War II historians, veterans, and veterans’ family members and friends. There were more than 20,000 airmen directly involved in the subject mission and many of their children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren are just now learning about their progenitor’s heroic participation. It is also of interest to people with personal interest in things military, pertinent to the Air Force in general and the 8th Air Force in particular.

OP: What is special about your book?

Donald: It reveals a story that has not previously been told – an accounting of the collaboration of mammoth air power and determined ground troop advancement that brought Hitler’s ambitious dreams to a disappointing retreat, a beginning of the end of Hitler’s destructive war.

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

Donald: The underlying story of the Christmas Eve 1944 mission was obscured by the tragic loss of the mission commander, General Frederick Castle in a surprise attack over “friendly” territory. Castle was the only American General killed in enemy combat in the European Theater. He had been one of the original seven “Eaker’s Amateurs” who established the 8th Army Air Force in England in 1942. General Henry “Hap” Arnold, Commander of the Army Air Forces was his Godfather. The story of Castle’s tragic loss became the story of the day. After the war ended, the 8th Air Force mission records for the mission were misfiled in the National Archives Air Force history stacks. They remained “lost” until I began researching this book and found them in a box labelled for the previous mission. They had been in the wrong box since the early 1950s.

OP: Have you published any other books?

Donald: I am a retired manufacturing executive and writing has been a sideline hobby. I have written one previous book of an entirely different genre. Titled Neither Virgin nor Martyr, it is a history of saints who do not fit into the traditional model of the Catholic Church. My other military history writings have primarily been articles in military related publications, many for the 8th Air Force Historical Society.

OP: Do you plan to publish more?

Donald: Presently none are in the works.

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