‘Tis the Season for Self-Publishing Authors to Give Back with Winning Recipes

Can’t you just hear those ladles jinglin’, and those whisks ring-ting-tinglin’ too? It’s that time of year when our utensils and kitchen appliances are in constant high gear, hot out of the oven, or worn to the nub with batch after batch of holiday goodness.

‘Tis the season of giving, so share that goodness with the world – for a good cause! Submit your recipes to Outskirts Press via Facebook for a chance to be included in the 2013 Holiday Recipe Book. Our entire social networking community will have a chance to vote this Tuesday on which charity will receive proceeds from the sale of the Recipe Book. Be sure to visit the Outskirts Press blog on Tuesday to place your vote!

Do you make a killer cookie that is to die for? Is your holiday punch the talk of the town? Now is not the time to keep these culinary secrets under wraps. Get the word out on Facebook for a chance to get that mouthwatering recipe published.

Submitting your recipes for consideration is simple. Here’s what to do:

  1. Become an Outskirts Press Facebook fan by “liking” our Facebook page. If you’ve already liked us, great!
  2. Post your recipe as a “Note” on Facebook. Then tag the Outskirts Press Facebook Page in your Note.
  3. Enlist your friends to vote for your submission by “liking” it.

Recipes with the highest number of votes will be considered for inclusion in our upcoming Holiday Recipe Book. Proceeds from the sale of the cookbook will be donated to the charity selected by our social community. Submissions can be anything — appetizers, entrees, desserts and more!

By submitting a recipe, you grant us a non-exclusive right to use the materials you submit
through our social media channels and within the Facebook community when it is published and distributed. Furthermore, you understand that royalties from the sale of the Holiday Recipe Book are not split among the contributors, but instead are donated to charity.

The 2013 Holiday Recipe Book will be published and ready for sale just in time for the holiday season. Let the giving begin!

Steve Pollard is a freelance writer who was born and raised in Southern Nevada. He is the third youngest of eleven siblings and enjoys the challenges of creativity. Normal is his first novel.

Dexter is a young boy who knows many things but understands very little. Faced with the burden of two mental disorders, his life is a challenge both at school and among his peers. Despite his mother’s unconditional love, there is nothing Dexter wants more than to be like everyone else. He just wants to be “normal.” And when he tries to achieve this goal, his decision will change his life and the lives of those around him…forever. Normal is the poignant story of a child dealing with the all-too-real effects of a dual diagnosis of Down syndrome and autism spectrum disorder.

– Steve Pollard, author of Normal
