Introducing Sean Senovich, author of The Slayer Chronicles: Community: Book 1 of the Homeland Trilogy

“With all the butterflies that came with my first publishing, Outskirts provided a great environment and helpful services. Their services were first class. Overall grade of A+”


Sean Senovich was born in 1978, growing up in a good home that saw the development of the cable system and home video, I watched it all! From the classic black and white horror movies my dad grew up with, to the B-rated seventies stuff, to the eighties horror classics and beyond, my questions were always, “Well, what happens after?” and “Why don’t more people fight?” Well, here’s how I see it…

Introducing Gabriel F.W. Koch, author of Paradox Effect: Time Travel and Purified DNA Merge to Halt the Collapse of Human Existence

Paradox Effect is my first publication experience with Outskirts Press. Since I felt skeptical about the process, I kept my expectations low. However, I could’ve set my expectations as high as I might imagine and y’all would’ve exceeded them. The experience was more a journey that led me along a path through a forest where rays of light speared through overhead foliage lighting my doubts with assurances. The end result was, I felt, and still do quite amazing. I highly recommend Outskirt Press to any writer frustrated with the more commercial means of publication. Heck, I recommend them to any writer period. They’re that good.”

Gabriel F.W. Koch is a 2004 winner of the L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future Award, a 2016 winner of the CIPA EVVY Award for Fiction/Science Fiction. He is the 2nd place winner of the Outskirts Press Best Book of the Year award, as well as an award-winning photographer.

Book description…

In 2554, the World is Coming to its End, unless an impossible mission through 600 years of time travel succeeds. Maternal instinct knows no boundaries, including the nano-neural-net intravenously installed in Dannia Weston’s mind to repress her identity, allowing her to perform a mission 300 years before her time. Transported to the year 1954, Dannia becomes a woman with a mid-twentieth century persona, college educated with an aptitude for mechanical invention. Due to her work during the war, she is employed by the U.S. government on a secret project. But what no one knows—including Dannia or those who sent her back to tinker with the mechanical past to reduce future pollution—is what might happen should she become emotionally involved in 1954. The 2254 science team programmed the nano-net to prevent the possibility of pregnancy, but each person reacts to strong emotional stimuli differently, and using birth control not available in 1954 is out of the question. When Dannia falls in love with Peter Hersh and becomes pregnant, her hormones erode a small section of the nano-chained network that stabilizes her new identity, triggering a mild memory rebirth…and threatening her mission and the fate of the world. 2017 Next Generation Indie Book Awards Finalist Science Fiction, Best Book of the Year Finalist, CIPA EVVY Second Place Science Fiction Award

Book description…

The doctor droned on, but all Jon could hear were the words “fatal” and “unbearable pain”. “Are you familiar with the Departure Option, Jon?” In the year 2050 the “enlightened method of dealing with terminal illness” is both pragmatic and efficient, but to deeply religious Millie Spencer it presents a moral dilemma. How can she allow husband Jon, recently diagnosed with a strange, new, fatal illness, to linger in the throes of a long, drawn-out, painful death? Although it is clear to Millie and her family that Departure would be the “best thing” to do, to her it could never be the “right thing”. Would subsequent events resolve her inner conflict? Would Millie ever find inner peace? We empathize with Millie and her family as they endure this crisis. Also interwoven into this tale is the heart-rending love story of son Sean and his mysteriously alienated wife Karen. A futuristic tale with strong characterization, The Departure may arouse in the reader a spark of fear that, perhaps one day this fantasy could become reality … and if it did, how would you react in a similar situation? Would you opt for Departure?
