Outskirts Press is now accepting submissions from its Facebook fans of short literary works to be included in Fandemonium Volume 5, now through April 30.
Fandemonium has become an anticipated annual tradition for the self-publishing community. This unique crowdsourcing effort is not only a collection of superior writing from the Outskirts Press Facebook community, but the profits also provide much-needed funding to a worthy cause. So, once again, Outskirts Press is calling out to that community online for contributions of short literary works for the annual Fandemonium anthology, slated to hit the bookshelves this summer.
The annual Fandemonium compilation includes a variety of literary works: short stories, poetry and other short-form literary works submitted by fans of the Outskirts Press Facebook page. Over the past four years, Fandemonium has brought Outskirts Press Facebook members together to experience the joy of publishing first-hand, while benefiting a great cause. Proceeds from the sale of the 2015 Fandemonium collection will be donated to a charity of choice on behalf of Outskirts Press and its Facebook fans. The American Red Cross will receive the proceeds from the sale of the Fandemonium Volume 5 anthology.
Members of the Outskirts Press Facebook community can submit poetry, short stories, excerpts, recipes or anecdotes for free publication – you’re limited only by your imagination! Submissions can be fiction, non-fiction or poetry, though entries of fewer than 5,000 words will be considered first. Getting published in the Facebook Fandemonium is simple:
- Submit your entry as a comment on our Facebook Page before April 30th.
- Encourage your Facebook friends to “like” your entry by visiting our Facebook page.
- You can also “share” your post with your Facebook friends to encourage more “likes.”
Submissions with the highest number of likes will be considered for inclusion in Fandemonium Volume 5.

|AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT & SUCCESS STORY|
“I was very impressed with the speed in which my first book was published (just 8-1/2 weeks from submission to publication). The additional charge for expedited service was a sound investment. Even more amazing was the quality of the books themselves and the imaginative custom cover design! I will definitely choose Outskirts Press to publish my second book.”
Vickie McGillis is a native of Winona, Minnesota. Although this is her debut novel, she is a seasoned, award-winning published poet, as well as a longtime supporter of animal rights groups. Vickie and her wonderfully-supportive husband still reside in the Winona area, along with their rescued four-legged companions.
Katie Munson was a struggling, poor young mother with four small children. At just 22 years of age, and freshly divorced, Katie had relocated her young family to their new home in a small rural town in southeastern Minnesota. In the comfort of her new surroundings, Katie presumed that she, along with her son and three baby girls, were safe from harm’s way. She believed they had escaped the iniquity from her past and were free to begin a renewed and happy life together. While Katie prepared for the toddler’s birthday party, nothing could have prepared her for the unforeseeable winter storm that was blowing in her direction, or the unspeakable terror that accompanied it. This particular day would prove to be just the beginning of a perpetual, formidable journey for Katie and her young family in their pursuit of peace and happiness.
