Outskirts Press Announces the Release of Giving My Self to the Wind: Stories, Essays, and More by Kathryn Atkins

November 1, 2017 – Denver, CO and Los Alamitos, CA – Outskirts Press, the fastest-growing, full-service self-publishing, and book marketing company, is pleased to announce the release of Giving My Self to the Wind: Stories, Essays, and More by Kathryn Atkins.

The book’s title comes from the penultimate line of a poem “Light the Light” that Ms. Atkins wrote in her teens. Her adoptive mother embroidered the poem word for word in a sampler (a photo of it is in the book) that became a source of inspiration for Kathryn—a reason to write. Her book opens with a quote by Gustave Flaubert, “The art of writing is the art of discovering what you believe,” which is why she published Giving My Self to the Wind. “It’s a way to discover what I believe, who I am,” she explains, “and to say I was here.”

The collection includes a helpful index. Without being over-the-top dense, the index saves the reader’s time when searching for topics and themes like Adoption. Aging. Caffeine. A convertible. Forts. Meditation. Pain. Pajamas. Showing up. Snoring. Writing. Hookers, moms, and dads. And peanut butter .
