K. Raymond Zabielski, author of The Cantrill Book One

“Let’s face it. Getting a literary agent is extremely difficult. Luckily I came across Outskirts Press and after digging deeper as to how they work and what they offer, I decided it was exactly what I was looking for. All questions were answered right up front. My Author Representative was always there to help guide me. This gave me the freedom to continue writing, while they took care of the nuts and bolts of getting a book out into the market. I presently have my first book published, the second manuscript being edited now with a third in queue. I look forward to having all six books in this series published by Outskirts Press and I couldn’t be happier.”

K. Raymond Zabielski is a native of Long Island New York, where he spent time hiking and camping in the Catskill and Adirondack mountains, reinforcing his deep love of nature. He started writing The Cantrill series there. In addition to his passion for storytelling, he loves animals. After a stint in Florida, Zabielski moved to Colorado, back to the mountains, which continue to inspire him as a writer.”

Here is a story of devastation and anguish and slavery…and the ensuing triumph and celebration. Lord Draegahn descends upon Earth, under the guise of a friend, but with aspirations of total world domination. He brings havoc and despondency to an unsuspecting world from where he is a stranger. Yet somehow, out of this iniquity, a curious friendship emerges between Siris — one of the wrongly convicted aliens — and four likewise incarcerated Earthlings.

This story is Siris’s journey as a detainee of injustice, a fugitive, an abated former soldier, a military prisoner and a military commander. All the while, Siris finds himself a mentor to his four Earthling friends who are destined to rise from the ashes of the alien invasion to become Earth’s most famous third-millennium superheroes: the Night Crusaders. Yet Siris has his own personal demons against which to struggle; his own insecurities haunting him night and day. But the moment of truth seizes Siris when he finally comes face-to-face with Lord Draegahn. Can Siris stand against his greatest fears, advancing toward him all at once? Siris will have to master his morality, conquer his insecurities and rediscover his great determination and strength if he will have any hope of leading the campaign to end the alien invasion on Earth once and for all!

“Very nice,” Luca said, evidently impressed. I would have made a snide comment, but I was too happy so I just laughed and nodded along. I pulled into our spot, parked, got out and did a happy dance. Luca watched and laughed. “I’m going to really miss you, you know,” he said watching my dance. On the inside, I felt my heart drop an inch. On the outside, I walked up to him and punched him on his arm. “I know,” I said, sticking my tongue out, our faces less than two feet apart. He gave me a smile and I knew that if I didn’t move at this very second, something bad would happen. So I morphed into a mockingbird and flew away, behind a tree. It was the first time his smile gave me butterflies in my stomach.

Introducing Larry Baughn, author of The Ghost Hunter

“This is the first novel I have ever written, let alone publish, and Outskirts Press was there for me all-the-way! They walked me through all the intricacies associated with preparing and editing my book, which I was totally unaware of, and when I had too many questions for a simple email, my representative contacted me by phone and led me through all the ins and outs. I’m now a published author and Outskirts Press is still there for me, answering post publication questions and giving me excellent information about marketing my book. I will definitely choose them again when I finish with my second novel!”
