Outskirts Press Self-Publishing Author Takes Top Spot in ForeWord’s 2014 IndieFab Awards

Outskirts Press is fortunate to boast many award-winning authors and books over the years, and today we add one more to list. We’re proud to announce that Outskirts Press author J.M. Erickson has taken Gold in the Science Fiction category in ForeWord’s Book of the Year Awards for Future Prometheus II, the second book in a series.

ForeWord’s Book of the Year Awards program was created to spotlight distinctive books from independent publishers. The judges—working librarians and booksellers—review the entries based upon on their experiences with patrons and customers. The annual ForeWord IndieFab Awards has for the past 18 years recognized the best in independent/self-published books. Winners are awarded cash prizes, along with priceless industry recognition that helps indie authors continue to make connections with readers and publishing insiders. More than 1,300 entries in 63 categories were considered for the awards, which represent the best in small publishing offerings. Foreword Reviews announced the winners at the annual ALA Conference in June.

Congratulations to J.M. Erickson for the big win in the 2014 awards!

TOP 5 PUBLISHING HEADLINES
AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT & SUCCESS STORY

“I’m both pleased and encouraged by my experience with Outskirts Press. The thrill of seeing the stunning, colorful cover and feeling the comfortable heft of my book in hand has been terrific. Outskirts Press had demonstrated professionalism throughout the publishing process. They handled everything respectfully and completed each publication step in a timely manner. I will happily return to Outskirts Press with my next project!”

Paul J. Nyerick grew up in Southington, Connecticut. He attended Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Connecticut before serving as a United States Marine Corps forward observer in Vietnam. Although stricken with multiple sclerosis, he completed his BVE (Bachelor of Vocational Education) and MA degrees at California State University San Bernardino so he could move from the physical demands of firefighting to teaching firefighters. Paul explores writing and photography to maintain personal balance. Paul lives with his wife and dogs in Connecticut and Florida.

Vietnam veteran Jerry Johnson peacefully sits on a quiet mountainside, watching a storm brewing to the west. He notes a small plane flying toward his lofty perch when a blinding flash strikes the approaching aircraft. A single parachute floats to earth, and the crippled bird crashes into the canyon below, kindling a wildfire that licks its way toward the fallen pilot. As Jerry cuts the harness away from the pilot, who appears to be unconscious, he is surprised to find a redheaded girl staring back at him from the rocky canyon floor. After regaining her senses, E.D. Struction seems more concerned about a box she lost falling to earth than the danger from the ensuing conflagration. After escaping the fire, Jerry and the beautiful pilot set out to retrieve the mysterious yellow box-a box with symbols from most of the ancient peoples who flourished in the Western Hemisphere inlayed on the lid. They must find it before Harlan Diamond, the fourth richest person on the planet, gets his hands on the prize.
– Paul J. Nyerick, author of Windfalling

Amazon Featured Book-of-the-Week

Here’s this week’s Featured Book-of-the-Week available now on Amazon.com!


Checkmate Run

by Allan Alexander

(5 Stars – 12 Customer Reviews)

Price: $24.95

Allan Alexander’s “Checkmate Run.” The KGB agents are vicious, and they are closing in… His odds of escaping are bleak… Will he prevail although everything is muddled in a treacherous love triangle? Whom can he trust? The inevitable checkmate could bring him freedom … or death. Checkmate Run is an adrenaline rush of a story about a precocious young man’s deadly struggle to survive the brutal Soviet regime. Alex Loevsky is a medical student and an inspiringly rebellious poet. He becomes enmeshed in a breakneck battle against the rampant cruelty of the totalitarian state, where just the desire to think freely is nearly a crime on par with treason, and being born Jewish is more than a mere hindrance. Will he be able to cross the Iron Curtain?
