Our Facebook Anthology has already proven to be very popular. Since announcing the opportunity for writers to get published for free through Outskirts Press simply by becoming a Facebook Fan and then submitting a short story, poem, recipe or excerpt, our Fan Base has grown quickly past 1,000 active members. Thank you for the support!
There’s still time to submit your content. Just visit our Facebook Page and then open a comment on this status report and enter your submission. Be sure to read the other submissions and “like”/comment on those you are fond of.
We’re also looking for Title Suggestions. We have possible titles that we will suggest next week when the voting begins, but if you have an idea for the title of our Facebook Anthology, submit your ideas via our Facebook Page. “Like” the title suggestions other members have made which you are fond of. Next Monday, January 10th, this blog will have a public vote/survey of five possible Title suggestions and the most popular title, as determined by you, will be the one we use.
The same process applies to the Charity. As we’ve mentioned, the royalties of the Facebook Anthology are going to be donated to a charity. We already have some in mind, but if you have a charity you’d like to see “in the running” for consideration, suggest it on our Facebook Page. “Like” other charity ideas that have been submitted by others. Then, everyone will be invited to vote for the final charity next week.
We’re going to take care of the editing and the interior formatting. But that leaves the cover, and tomorrow’s blog will discuss that.
