Announcing the Release of Slave to the Dream: Forever in Pursuit by Gaylan D. Wright, Published by Outskirts Press

March 28, 2017 – Denver, CO and Cheyenne, WY – Gaylan Wright’s recently released biography is a story of overcoming chaos and desperation, achieving personal change, and the wisdom one gains from a life of trials and triumphs. Slave to the Dream: Forever in Pursuit has been published by Outskirts Press—the fastest-growing full-service self-publishing and book marketing company.

Slave to the Dream tells of the author’s intense rebellion as a stubborn, emotionally blank teenager and the roadblocks that were thrown up in his path. “I’m telling this story with the hope that more people will realize they can still make a human contribution regardless of what they did way back in the seventh grade,” Gaylan explains. “As a youngster, I justified my wrongs by telling myself, ‘Just because I do bad things doesn't mean I was brought up that way.’”

Gaylan writes about his life being in twined with the healing powers of family support and divine intervention. Gaylan determined to change his life. He joined the U.S. Air Force, where he served for 21 years. He then served as a Wyoming Highway Patrol Trooper for 18 years before officially retiring and writing his inspirational memoir.

One reader review sums it up best: “Your transparency about your struggles and choices makes the reader examine and reflect on their own life. We seek meaning, purpose and love. Probably the statement in your book that stood out the most to me was when you described yourself as a teen that didn't feel anything; you felt no emotion. I wanted to grab the young man and shout, ‘Don't give up! Don't give in!’ Fortunately, you didn't give up. You have faced many struggles with others and yourself. I appreciate your heart not only willing to share your past, but your desire to encourage others. God's grace always amazes me. We all are sin-stained, but in Jesus we are forgiven. Thank you for sharing your life story!” (Gretchen Carlson)
