Reading is one of the greatest joys in life, the pure magic of storytelling on paper. Samati Press chooses books to publish based on the belief that all good books should bring something positive—make you think, make you laugh, remind you of precious memories, teach you about history or different cultures, or provide pure entertainment. That positive effect will then be reflected through the readers to the world at large.
Samati Press is not a traditional publisher, nor is it a standard hybrid with specific packages for authors to choose from. Our goal is to abide by the highest professional standards of writing, editing and publishing, while nurturing and supporting the individual writer's own personal voice. That means our agreements and arrangements with authors we publish are individually tailored to that book and that author's vision, while adhering to our high publishing criteria.
Samati Press has published a wide variety of books. We do not, however, publish either erotica or children's books. Erotica has a large following, but does not suit our publishing mission. Children's books require specialized skills, both for text and illustrations, and are best suited for publishers who are experts in that genre. If you need a publisher for your Erotica or Children's book, please send me a message (contact us), or via the "Let's Chat!" box, and we will try to provide you with a referral link.

Could it be that whenever we say, "I can't do that," or "I don't have time to try that," or "I don't want to do that," we're ignoring an opportunity? Could it be that saying yes more often in life almost guarantees more opportunities? The author believes that nothing in life is an accident, and wrote this book to inspire and entertain readers with true stories covering an amazing range of widely divergent subjects. Some of the subjects covered are common to most people, birth, death, family problems, as well as business successes and failures. Others dealt with include mental health issues (bi-polar, Alzheimer's, and autism) kittens, ghosts, animal communications, a congressman, spirituality, a knife-wielding hitchhiker, Hell's Angels.....and more.
Her hope is that readers will be entertained and inspired by the stories, as they are reminded of occasions in their own lives which have taught and strengthened them.

The Talking Badge is a collection of true stories, fictionalized as necessary, by a cop who worked the streets for 30 years—twenty as a K-9 and bomb squad officer. Straight from the heart, self-described “crazy cop” Mike Garner tells you what it’s like to serve and protect the public. You'll experience what it's like to go on some of the funniest, saddest, and most exciting radio calls that can be imagined,
You will never look at a cop on the street the same way after reading The Talking Badge. Learn why police officers do what they do and see why even the simplest traffic stop can become a life-or-death moment. Learn through a cop’s eye view why so many police officers are at risk of stress-related illnesses, divorce, alcoholism, and suicide.
The Talking Badge shows you the cold truth of what it was like to be a cop during Mike's tenure, but also explains why many procedures have changed. The book discusses what still needs to be changed to help both the officers and their families cope with the physical dangers and incredible mental stresses of the job.
Names have been changed to protect the guilty and the innocent, and some incidents have been adapted to protect privacy while still conveying the essence of a police officer’s life and work.
Adult language and graphic, sometimes very disturbing, content.
