Each year, Fandemonium brings Outskirts Press Facebook members together to experience the joy of publishing with Outskirts Press first-hand.

The result of this unique crowdsourcing effort is a collection of superior writing from the Outskirts Press Facebook community, the profits of which provide much-needed funding to the American Red Cross on behalf of Outskirts Press and its Facebook fans.

We’d like to thank the many writers and Facebook fans who shared their talent and good work with Outskirts Press. And an especially big tip of the hat to our Fandemonium Volume 4 finalists, who rose to the top of a very competitive field of authors. The featured authors in Fandemonium Volume 4 are:

Self-Publishing Author Spotlight: Amirali Dossa

Outskirts Press is regularly impressed with the creativity of our self-publishing authors. It takes a great deal of discipline and devotion to produce a book — much less several! Today we tip our hat to a mother-daughter writing team responsible for several a series of inspiring memoirs — Cheryl Cusick and Jamie Lynn Cusick.

Together, the Cusicks have published four books through Outskirts Press that center on Jamie’s experiences with a neuromuscular disease, as well as the stories of others with similar experiences.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:Amirali Dossa
Amirali Dossa was born in East Africa and educated on the east coast and has a successful computer career in California. The inspiration for his books was a collective thought process he experienced throughout his life. There was an exhaustive compilation process before the first book was presented in its current form. Dossa found great humor in the book, and hopes everyone also finds great humor within it.

Join Outskirts Press for Memoir Month for Self-Publishing Authors

Memoir Writing KitOutskirts Press is excited to celebrate its second “Memoir Month” throughout July — and we want you to celebrate with us!

One of the most valuable pieces of literature can be a person’s own story — touching recollections and valuable personal history they pass down to future generations. For the remainder of July, we want our self-publishing writers to share their life experiences and be able to pass their stories on to future generations of their families.

The Memoir Writing Kit from Outskirts Press offers 140 pages of memory-provoking questions to help inspire the writer. All the writer has to do is answer the questions in complete sentences, remove the questions themselves, and the memoir practically writes itself!

Everyone’s life experience is unique. The beauty of the Memoir Writing Kit is that it is flexible and comprehensive enough to help any writer start and complete their memoirs, no matter what sort of life they have led. The writer can simply delete sections that don’t apply to them or add details and stories that do. The structure is roughly chronological, beginning with “The Dawn of Life” and ending with “The Sunset.” The years between are organized by similarly themed chapters, ranging from “Childhood Holidays and Celebrations” to “Serving My Country” to “A Taste for Life.”

Get an up-close look at how the Memoir Writing Kit from Outskirts Press actually works, throughout the month of July. Each day, we’ll post questions from the kit on the Outskirts Press Facebook page. Feel free to chime in with your memories as they relate to these questions, and get an insider’s glimpse of the memoir-writing process!
