Author Poll: Genesis T. Yengoh Needs Help Choosing his Cover

Genesis T. Yengoh is self-publishing a book with Outskirts Press, and he wants your help deciding his book cover.

Book Summary:

Nsiemboh Ngoske is the most successful member of his family. Intelligent, educated, and poised on the brink of a career promotion, he has blessed his parents and siblings with wealth and comfort formerly beyond their reach. His parents, Elias and Lydia Ngoske, want to do all they can to protect and support their son. Lydia Ngoske believes in the Christian God—that wonderful heavenly Father who has so much to give, and who asks only prayer and belief of His followers. She prays fervently for protection and favor from God, but she knows that won’t be enough in a world where personal agendas are advanced through the powers of the occult. She demands that her son be protected by traditional medicine, and enlists Elias Ngoske’s brother, Nsanen Jude, to find the most powerful protection available. He recommends Mforme Tata, a renowned traditionalist sought after by the most influential men in the country. He agrees to give the Ngoske family what they want…but inexorable rules govern the world of the occult, and the Ngoskes find that they are given something unexpected, which neither the dark arts nor the Christian God can control. In a compelling, richly atmospheric, beautifully characterized exploration of how belief shapes destiny, God and the Gods draws you into a world of intricate ritual and family love, where one person’s mistake may have irreversible consequences.

The Trouble With Peer Pressure A Simple “My ADHD Story” for Young Teens by Darlene R. Wood Virtual Book Tour

With the abundance of self-published authors, you have to come up with creative ways to market a self-published book.  While book tours are a great way to connect with your readers, they aren’t the most affordable method of promotion.  However, technology has made it possible for an alternative.

Take note from self-publishing Outskirts Press author, Darlene R. Wood, who is taking her latest book, The Trouble With Peer Pressure
A Simple “My ADHD Story” for Young Teens,
on tour – a virtual book tour, that is. She will be featured on several blogs over the weeks and months ahead so keep your eyes peeled to learn more about her and her book.


Luckily for us, Darlene 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 The Trouble With Peer Pressure
A Simple “My ADHD Story” for Young Teens
.

The Trouble With Peer Pressure A Simple “My ADHD Story” for Young Teens book cover

OP: Tell us a little bit about The Trouble With Peer Pressure
A Simple “My ADHD Story” for Young Teens
. What is it about?

DRW: Peer pressure compounded with ADHD – this book is a practical guide to help you navigate every day life at home and in school from a young age to adulthood.  It includes ways to think about the consequences of your actions whether it be from drinking to using drugs, to getting along with others or just being happy within your own skin.  Coping with every day issues that may seem simple for others can be a harder task for a child with ADHD to handle.

OP: Why did you decide to write this story?

DRW: It is based on my son’s life story who has ADHD and the challenges he had to overcome while growing up including socializing, using drugs and alcohol, and dealing with peer pressure.  He is an adult now and sober for several years and definitely contributing to society in a very healthy and positive manner.

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

DRW: It is for children ages 8 to 13.  If we reach out the our young youth and explain how their actions affect everything they do in life, hopefully, we can get them to chose going down the right path before it is too late; otherwise, they could end up in our jails and detention centers.

OP: What is special about your book?  What differentiates it from other books in the same category?

DRW: Due to the fact that ADHD in itself means, attention deficit (short attention span to hold onto a subject), this book is short, to the point, and covers a real life child’s journey from childhood to adulthood in a easy to read (with pictures) book.  It asks a lot of questions to make the child THINK about their answers and perhaps the consequences of their actions and how the final outcome of their life could be successful as the books’ final words read:  SUCCESS IS THE ONLY OPTION.

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

DRW: This is my very first book.  I wrote it a long time ago,but I never acted on it until recently.  I do plan to write a followup book on the consequences it takes on siblings growing up in the families’ toxic environment.

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

Warburton's Winning System Tapping and Other Transformational Mental Training Tools for Athletes book cover

OP: You’ve published three books with Outskirts Press.

First, please tell us about the first two, Warburton’s Winning System and the complementary Fast-Start Guide to Warburton’s Winning System…?

 What led to writing Warburton’s Winning System?

GW: Athletes, parents and coaches need practical methods for how to apply the constant advice to be mentally tough, keep your emotions off the field and play with confidence. I was frustrated to notice that there was still advice only being given…

So I create a down-to-earth system to practice and added the innovative body-energy based methods to rapidly and dependably relax…

Athletes don’t want just advice…THEY WANT TO KNOW WHAT THEY CAN LEARN AND PRACTICE TO RELAX IN THEIR SPORT…SO THEIR BODY CAN DO WHAT THEY HAVE TRAINED IT TO DO…

Championship Mental Training…Adding the Missing “How to/What to” Practice

This is the practical, down-to-earth mental training that athletes, parents and coaches have wanted for generations. You will be introduced to a complete, step-by-step system for how to truly get started managing your mental game. You will learn innovative, specific techniques that you were never taught in school, nor on the athletic field.  You will learn how to practice so that you dependably compete with a relaxed body and calm mind from start to finish…the ideal performance state.  These are mental-and-emotional self-management skills you can actually do. Imagine the value of knowing how to manage stress and anxiety when competing under pressure when it matters most. No more fighting your head to stay calm. No more butterflies and no more slumps!  Players say, “Now mental training is fun.” A decade later, many players who have been part of College Division I Conference and/or National Championships have chosen to add my mental training.

OP: Who is the target audience for Warburton’s Winning System?

GW: My goal is to teach what I call, Mental and Emotional Self-Management, for the athletic field, the classroom and in life to as many middle school, high school and college athletes, including parents and coaches as I can.

Also for recreational athletes

Professional athletes could benefit from the information as well

The young athletes are excited to learn what they can actually practice to consistently compete with a relaxed body, calm mind…no more big butterflies/big anxiety to begin a performance (Practice, practice, practice mental training)

AND

They like learning that they are strong and are operating on “the courage to admit there are some trouble spots in their performance and are taking action to fix it”  instead of the old belief that if they meet with someone/ or coach wants them to meet with someone it means there is something wrong with them and they are weak.

I also wrote a companion Fast-Start Guide for Warburton’s Winning System…the guts of the system for those who want to jump right in and start practicing mental training.

OP: Tell us about your most recent book, Ask More, Tell Less…? What types of readers would be interested in Ask More, Tell Less?

GW: My target audience is parents, teachers, counselors…any who want to build a big collection of practical and effective skills/fill their “tool box”…instead of

Any and all in those groups who are weary of the ineffectiveness of being a three-practices-only parent…The I “TRY” parent … TRY standing for:

Telling (kids/teens what to do), Reminding (kids/teens what they are supposed to do) and Yelling (at kids/teens when they aren’t doing what they are supposed to be doing)

The reviews are really strong…with the independent review below speaking specifically about why I wrote the book rooted in her experience of and description of the usefulness of my book…

OP: What do you feel differentiates this book from other books in the parenting genre?

GW: It is about asking both parents and children, WHAT KIND OF PARENT/WHAT KIND OF CHILD DO YOU WANT TO BE? instead of telling them what to do.

I SPENT THE PAST 25 YEARS WRITING THIS BOOK BECAUSE THE PEOPLE I SERVED AS A MENTAL HEALTH/SCHOOL COUNSELOR FOUND MY METHODS VERY PRACTICAL AND HELPFUL AND ASKED ME TO WRITE ABOUT THEM BECAUSE THEY COULDN’T FIND THEM IN ANY BOOKS.

It takes pressure off parents because the questions effectively cause kids/teens to progressively do more and more of their own thinking, talking, listening, remembering, truth-telling and deciding about what they are going to do in their life all along the getting on with growing up pathway

I think it is the most comprehensive collection of practical skills/tools for working with kids/teens and boost esteem and move them onto the self-reliance pathway ON THE MARKET TODAY.!

It teaches parents, teachers, counselors how to use language creatively to communicate with kids/teens

OP: Tell us a little about publishing with Outskirts Press. What was that like?

GW: Outskirts Press is superb operating in a critical nice in the publishing world where they provide a complete book product  (including front matter, ISBN, etc.), sales pages/information for talking with book stores and providing marketing service as well…this all gives self-published authors a big advantage over merely using something like “create space” for a Print-on-demand book.

The staff have worked with me to address any concerns I may have had and have assisted me with finishing my book projects

Further, I recently had the pleasure of meeting and talking with OP President, Brent Sampson. I learned he is approachable, truly listens to author experiences using OP services and is tirelessly working to build a superb and complete self-publishing service company for aspiring authors.

OP: Are you currently writing another book? Tell us about it…?

GW: I am not currently writing another book…though have some ideas percolating…

Given the strong reviews for my books I am working with OP on generating marketing and publicity to share the information with the whole wide world.

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