Positive Outlook: what makes us, us.

OGSB is an ambitious site for the books of several authors.

We each provide material to the site, as time permits. We are not publishers. We just play to our strengths.

W.D. Edmiston MSCJ manages the site.

Edmiston has a book, Looking Backward, Forward, currently on Amazon – Kindle since 2018. It will return as a revised work in 2020.

When our books are almost ready to publish, we offer a number of things: Advanced Review Copies (ebooks only). If you respond with a critique or praise, you will get a free copy of the new book when published.

It would be great if you kept in touch. On our Contact Page there is a form that will get that done.  It’s not OK to ask you to post a review in exchange for a book. But, if you like any of our books or other media, we suggest you follow us and use the form to keep up with OGSB. We may even run a contest one day for you to guess what OGSB means. Keep your bedroll and wine choices dry.Free Stuff

Free Pages and Short Stories

Around each holiday, each of us will offer a short story fitting the season. Go to the Contact Page and tell us you want the “free stuff.” That’s all it will take. 

We would be delighted to send you an email, with cut and pasted pages of a Word document or pdf file about any of the W.D.Edmiston, Spencer A. Allen or Arlington J North books. Hit the follow button, add your email and I will work them into my daily chores. You can decide if you want to get either of Spence’s or J’s books now, a week to 8 weeks before they will be released in full. When they are, you will be notified that the book is going or has gone onto Amazon for publishing.

Go to their pages on the Menu to read the synopsis of the books and any reviews we have posted. If the book sounds interesting and one of us has a few pages ready, we might be able to send them to you right then. If not we will at least let you know when the book is ready for peer review. If you are interested sign up and let us know the specifics. We are not going to bury you in spam, promise.

Notice to the persnickety: Let’s be clear – Edmiston, Starr, our guest authors, and artists are all real people.  North and Allen are not – they are pen names for W.D. Edmiston.  Therefore, if you have ideas, heartburn, or are curious over anything we write, we want to hear about it. But, at the same time, you should not be surprised to find North and Spence are not writers. The names are taken from real people now deceased.  North was a mentor, Spence was an LEO partner of mine. Starr is my oldest friend, we are talking two guys who rode tricycles and watched Captain Kangaroo together. D. Larue Mahlke has all her contact information on the Art and Media page.  We are sure you are going to want to know where she is showing, teaching, and traveling all around the United States – especially the Southwest.  We have offered a space for a photographer as well.
