Down-home Community Secedes from Massachusetts: The Island of Macbeth Published by Outskirts Press

Outskirts Press announces the latest highly anticipated action and adventure fiction from author Mike Kostensky.


Denver, CO - Outskirts Press, Inc. has published The Island of Macbeth by Mike Kostensky.  The author's most recent book to date is a 5.5 x 8.5 paperback in the action and adventure fiction category and is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble.  The webpage at was launched simultaneously with the book's publication.

Mitch started his writing career with big dreams, but he’s settled into an empty life of one-night stands, late nights at the bar, and failed ambitions.  His latest assignment seems like a dead end: he’s been assigned to Macbeth, a tight-knit island community off the coast of Massachusetts, where the quaint down-home values of Norman Rockwell and Mayberry still hold sway.  

But this little piece of paradise isn’t immune to the modern world, and Mitch finds himself caught up in the unthinkable: Macbeth, lacking support from the mainland, yet not allowed to govern itself, secedes from Massachusetts.  The consequences of this decision are far-reaching, as a small community shakes the foundation of the United States, facing a bloody battle they would never have chosen…and their spokesman becomes Mitch, the journalist who learns that he is not the man he thought he was, as he becomes more enmeshed in the life of the islanders, and discovers what love really is.

A modern-day epic about the ways in which war impacts real people, The Island of Macbeth is a thought-provoking, inventive novel written to challenge and entertain readers.

379 pages in length, The Island of Macbeth is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the action and adventure fiction category.  With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, The Island of Macbeth meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $16.95.

Additionally, The Island of Macbeth can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press Direct bookstore at
