When a reader finds himself immersed in the world created by a talented author, it’s easy to forget the person behind the captivating tale. Not so with Glen’s work—and that’s a good thing! With Recovery Turns Rescue, Glen weaves a dramatic story of calamity and salvation — that just happens to be true! Learn more about Glen Michael Morgan and his riveting memoir in this week’s Self-Publishing Author Spotlight.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
An accomplished professional speaker and published author, Glen Michael Morgan brings his heart and soul to this true story of survival. In this extraordinary memoir, he and his wife Connie share their words, and those of their daughter Kristin, on her journey from near-death to healing.
Recovery Turns Rescue
An Amazing True Story of Survival Against All Odds!
Kristin Hopkins, a dedicated single mother of four children, was working and getting her life in order with her family’s support. One day, she left for work…and never came home. The victim of a terrible accident, Kristin spent six days in her overturned car without food or water, and when a passerby happened to see her car, nobody thought she was alive. But when the first responders arrived at the car to retrieve her body, they found to their amazement that she was still breathing, though her body temperature was dangerously low, and she had almost no blood pressure. This is the agonizing, inspiring true story of Kristin’s road to recovery through incredible courage and persistence. Follow Kristin and her family from the first terrifying realization that she was missing, through the ordeals of the ICU and the shock of finding out that her feet would need to be amputated to save her life…and then share with them the miracle of Kristin’s recovery and learning to walk again. This heartfelt story of everyday heroes will restore your faith in humanity and inspire you with a demonstration of what the human spirit can overcome.

Facebook Fandemonium gives writers the rare opportunity to get their work published and benefit a great cause at the same time by submitting their works for publication through Facebook for a limited time. If you haven‘t yet, there’s still time to get your work seen! Outskirts Press is accepting submissions through April 30.
Need to get inspired? Check out what writers like yourself contributed to the Fandemonium collection, Volume 1-4. Hundreds of members of the Outskirts Press Facebook community submitted an impressive array of poetry, short stories, excerpts, recipes, anecdotes and more since 2011, and the best of them were included in the collection.
In addition to free publication and priceless exposure, inclusion in Fandemonium gives authors the satisfaction of knowing that they’ve put their talents to use for a good cause. Proceeds from the sale of Fandemonium collections are donated to the American Red Cross on behalf of Outskirts Press and its Facebook fans.
Getting published in the Facebook Fandemonium is simple: Authors can post their submission directly to the Outskirts Press Facebook page. Be sure to invite your friends and family to “Like” your submission. The submissions with the highest number of “Likes” will be considered for inclusion in Fandemonium Volume 5. Submissions can be fiction, non-fiction or poetry, and entries under 5,000 words will be considered first.
The world-famous London Book Fair kicks off tomorrow and runs through April 16, welcoming more than 1,500 exhibitors, and tens of thousands of publishers, booksellers, literary agents, librarians, media and of course traditional and self-publishing authors to one of the largest publishing industry trade shows in the world. More than 100 countries are represented as attendees gather at the global marketplace, situated amidst famous London attractions that highlight the UK’s rich literary history and longstanding cultural ties to nearly all of near and far East Asia, Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
This year, the 44th year, the Fair returns to Olympia, West London. This location places all the action near the heart of Kensington, the seat of the Monarchy since 1689. When not hobnobbing with movers and shakers in the publishing industry, fair-goers will have access to all the fabulous historical sites, landmarks and unrivaled shopping opportunities the area affords. But the real appeal of the London Book Fair is the exposure that comes right to you in the spacious and bustling event space.
If you missed out this time around, don’t worry: There are plenty of other chances to gain valuable book fair exposure in exotic locales throughout the year (Bologna, Frankfurt, Beijing, New York and more). Talk with your Personal Marketing Assistant about a Global Book Tour through Outskirts Press to get in on the action in late 2015 and 2016.

Before you head out the door for a giant turkey dinner at your parents’ house, there’s one last important — and money-saving — thing to do: Order your Amazon Extreme marketing package before it’s too late!
Authors who begin their publishing efforts by purchasing the Diamond or full-color Pearl publishing packages will receive nearly $250 of Amazon marketing options free: an Amazon Kindle edition of their published book, Amazon’s Search Inside the Book submission service and the Amazon Cover Enhancement once their book is listed on Amazon.com. These authors also receive a complimentary copy of the Amazon bestseller, “Sell Your Book” on Amazon by Outskirts Press CEO and publishing expert Brent Sampson. It’s everything an author needs to jump-start book sales on Amazon.com — just in time for the gift-buying boom.
The benefits of these free marketing products is clear:
An Amazon Kindle edition is a way to offer one’s book to the fast-growing audience of Kindle ebook reading device owners. Amazon sells millions of Kindles annually. Because Amazon.com customers still love reading actual books, Kindle is an inexpensive way for them to sample a book before buying the paperback or hardback edition. This is especially true for their readers who love fiction.
With Amazon’s Search Inside the Book feature, authors can dramatically increase chances to sell their books. Being able to browse through sections of the book increases the confidence the customer has in the product and makes it far more likely they’ll purchase a copy of the book.
The Amazon Cover Enhancement service gets your cover image submitted to Ingram at the time of publication. Ingram, in turn, distributes your cover image to online retailers like Amazon. By manually interfacing directly with Amazon, we can override Amazon and Ingram’s automatic process and get your cover image on Amazon much faster, usually within two to three business days, rather than the standard 30-45 days.
Take advantage of the Outskirts Press Amazon Extreme marketing package by entering the promotional code, available on the Outskirts Press website at http://www.outskirtspress.com/promotion.html, when you order your Diamond or Pearl publishing package and place it in your online shopping cart.
