)-- Outskirts Press, Inc. has published Unfinished Business: Stories of Amazing Ordinary People by Margie Melvin Long. The author's most recent book to date is a 5.5 x 8.5 paperback in the biography category and is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The webpage at www.outskirtspress.com/unfinishedbusiness was launched simultaneously with the book's publication.
According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, legacy is “something transmitted by or received from an ancestor or predecessor or from the past.” The author believes that all of us have a legacy we leave behind when we complete our earthly journey. Some will leave behind children they have raised to carry on a family’s brand. Others will be remembered for their life’s work, whatever form that may take. While still others leave behind the impressions they’ve made on the people they have encountered.
She also believes each of us is sent here with a purpose. Often that purpose is not revealed to us here on this earth plane, but it’s her belief that ultimately we will know why we were here. It’s one of life’s great mysteries.
The people in this book are ordinary people who lived among us for one year to thirty-nine years. They are not celebrities or otherwise well-known to the world. But as readers will learn, each and every one of them has a legacy they’ve left behind, and each unfortunately left unfinished business. They most certainly would have done more had their time on earth been longer, but readers will be amazed at how many lives have been impacted by this handful of ordinary people.
These stories are told from the perspectives of those who lost a loved one.
393 pages in length, Unfinished Business: Stories of Amazing Ordinary People is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the biography category.
