Eastsound, WA, June 22, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Outskirts Press, Inc. has published West of the Parthenon: My Memoir by George Karnikis. The author's most recent book to date is a 5.5 x 8.5 paperback in the adventurers and explorers autobiography category and is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The webpage at www.outskirtspress.com/West_of_the_Parthenon was launched simultaneously with the book's publication.
From the dialogues with Kirandonakis, the author’s mentor:
Q: “Why I am here, what’s the meaning of me being here as a human being, and who made us?”
A: “You and I, and all other human beings, and every living thing are here by accident; no one made us. Be a good man because you want to, not because someone puts the fear of god in you, or someone orders you to.”
West of the Parthenon, by the sea of Keratsini, and by the mountains to the north, is where George Karnikas saw the first light upon coming in this world. Later, on those February mornings in 1948, breakfast was his only incentive to go to school. Greece was recovering from the German occupation and civil war. As he neared the school, he could almost taste the hot cocoa.
291 pages in length, West of the Parthenon: My Memoir is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the adventurers and explorers autobiography category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, West of the Parthenon meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $15.95.
Additionally, West of the Parthenon can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press Direct bookstore at www.outskirtspress.com/bookstore.
Format: 5.5 x 8.5 paperback white
