)-- Outskirts Press, Inc. has published Syria's Song, The Melody That Ended Too Soon: Living With Bipolar Disorder, Manic Depression, and Surviving Suicide by Joscylan Adams. The author's most recent book to date is a 5.5 x 8.5 paperback in the depression and self-help category and is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The webpage at www.outskirtspress.com/syriassong was launched simultaneously with the book's publication.
“What is your song, your life’s song?” asks the author. “Is it a song filled with beautiful lyrics? Or does it move through the melancholy of a classic blues chord progression? Most of us will encounter a wide range of songs on our life’s journey. Life presents us with days when we’re singing the blues, and that’s okay – it’s a natural part of life. It’s how we respond to those blue days that makes a difference.”
Syria’s Song is a powerful tribute to a young woman whose song became tragically and permanently pitched in a minor key. With clear-sighted honesty and a remarkable depth of compassion, Joscylan Adams shares the too-brief life of her niece, Syria, who suffered from bipolar disorder and who ended up taking her own life. Determined to find a greater meaning in the life and death of the beautiful, funny, educated young woman who had resources available that she chose not to use, Adams set out to learn more about mental illness and suicide. In clear, nonjudgmental, realistic terms, Adams shows what it’s like to love and support someone with a mental illness. And with simple, direct language that anyone can follow, she explains depression, bipolar disorder, and suicide.
An invaluable resource for anyone whose life has been touched by mental illness or the tragedy of suicide, Syria’s Song creates warm, loving, safe space for an issue that is often seen as too difficult to talk about.
85 pages in length, Syria's Song, The Melody That Ended Too Soon: Living With Bipolar Disorder, Manic Depression, and Surviving Suicide is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the depression and self-help category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Syria's Song, The Melody That Ended Too Soon meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $11.95.

About the author:
Joscylan Adams was born and raised in Houston, Texas, and reading and writing have been her passion for more than thirty years. Due to a heart condition, she was forced to prematurely leave a job she had held for more than twenty years. During this already difficult period, she suffered the loss of her beloved niece, Syria, and then her father, nine months later. These tragedies gave her a greater sense of the fragility of life, and she decided to begin a journey of living her life’s calling. Her motto is: “Do things while you can, before you want to, and can’t.” Joscylan now lives in Fresno, Texas. This is her first book – and she plans many more to come.
