This was the third anthology we have published. The first was a collection from five of our highly successful authors and is titled The Highly Effective Habits of 5 Successful Authors.

The second was a collection of submissions made by our Facebook friends titled Fandemonium. In an effort to experiment with “collaborative, social publishing” our Facebook fans were involved with certain aspects of the production process, like determining the look of the cover, the pricing, and even the charity to receive the royalties — all determined by social voting.

Thank you to everyone who has submitted to our various anthologies. And if your submission hasn’t yet appeared, don’t worry! We are working on another anthology to feature 50 more submissions. We will let you know when it is published.

In the meantime, you can order Royal Flush on Amazon right now. Be sure to write a review to help your fellow Outskirts Press authors earn greater exposure for their work.


I have been extremely blessed by a God who has given me more gifts than one person should have. I was drawn to writing as soon as I was able to read and write. A childhood Christmas gift, a play typewriter, was where I saw my thoughts in print and realized I was much better at writing things down than expressing myself vocally. Much of my writing has had spiritual or moral threads running through it because of my faith. If you’re a believer this book will give you chills. If not, maybe you will find a bit of hope in between the lines as you realize dying is not the end of the road but truly the beginning. I hope this book inspires you as much as writing it hasinspired me.”As a first time author the process of self publishing could have been one of stress and frustration. Who needs more of that? The Outskirts team took incredible care to insure I was on the right track at all times. They delivered what they said they would, and the day my author copies arrived at my home I could have exploded with excitement. I’m glad that I didn’t, as I plan to publish my next book with this very professional, capable publishing company.”

– Susan Fries, author of When Pigs Fly
