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!

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!

Luckily for us, Joe B. Stallings, Jr. 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 Tales from the Joe Zone: Sixteen Entertaining Stories.

OP: Tell us a little bit about Tales from the Joe Zone: Sixteen Entertaining Stories. What is it about?

Joe: This book is a collection of short stories. The stories are quite varied: someone being blackmailed, someone working at the Department of Agriculture, a teen girl tunneling into a bank, a young boy who’s in elementary school getting on the wrong bus to go home, a man who wins the lottery, a man and his wife discussing tattoos, and much more.

OP: Why did you decide to write this story?

Joe: After I retired, I started writing stories for fun. When I began, I had no plans to publish a book. I have two college degrees, but I don’t remember being taught grammar in school. About ten years ago, I got very interested in grammar. I wrote the stories partly to understand grammar better and use my imagination . . . and it turned out to be so much fun!

OP: What types of readers would be interested in this story?
Joe: People who have a sense of humor and who like being surprised will be interested in my book. That’s my best guess, but who knows . . .

OP: What is special about your book?  

Joe: Special—I don’t think you’ll get bored or have read anything like them. Uniquely personal—I like to throw facts into the stories in a fun way.

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

Joe: No, I have not. I think I will publish more. I may publish another collection of short stories and maybe a novella.

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

Joe: For five or six years, I subscribed to fifteen or so literary journals so I could read a variety of short stories. And I bought other journals in bookstores. Also, I subscribed to several magazines, such as The New Yorker. I probably read at least a thousand short stories—and found almost all of them dull. So I kept track and rated them. My stories are fast-paced, keep you interested, and almost always surprise you.

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

Joe: Learn more—I don’t know, as I’m not on social media and don’t want to be. My books can be purchased at most online bookstores.

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

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

I’ve lived a normal life except perhaps in my youth during the 1960s and 1970s, when I lived in both Spain and Germany as an Air Force brat. My career as an accountant and financial planner required little if any imagination, creativity, or knowledge of grammar. Reading was of no interest to me until I reached the eleventh grade. Grammar was of no interest until a few years ago, when I asked my wife, “When should I use affect, and when should I use effect?” I didn’t understand how effect could be a noun. Wasn’t a noun supposed to be a person, place, or thing? I’ve been reading grammar books, diagramming sentences, trying to learn new words, and writing ever since. Dictionaries are my constant companions, and I have nine close at hand, one copyrighted in the 1930s. I’ve never had so much fun!
