Outskirts Press Authors in the News...

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

In the wake of new stories about traditionally published authors earning “six figure advances” Outskirts Press author Gang Chen earns six figures in six months and keeps all his rights, which means he can earn another six figures in another six months, long after a traditional advance would be gone.


Self Publishing Author Earns Over $100,000
in Just Six Months with Outskirts Press

Denver, CO and Irvine, CA – Outskirts Press, the fastest-growing full-service self publishing and book marketing company, today announced that one of its authors has earned over $100,000 in author royalties in six short months.

Gang Chen, the self published author of Planting Design Illustrated and LEED AP Exam Guide, received a royalty check in the amount of $77,611.88 for books sold between January-March. This follows a royalty check of $33,679.56 that Chen received from Outskirts Press for books sold the previous October-December.

"Earning $111,000 in six months is an amazing accomplishment," Outskirts Press CEO Brent Sampson commented. "Of course, publishing with Outskirts Press certainly helps. We extend heartfelt congratulations to Mr. Chen, and also want to thank him for graciously granting us permission to publicize his success."

Gang Chen, an expert in the field of architecture, with a master’s degree from USC and over 20 years of professional experience responded, "I’m in the process of publishing my next book in the LEED Exam Guide series through Outskirts Press, along with a book on architecture, so I hope to break this record soon."

After contacting hundreds of traditional publishers for his first book Planting Design Illustrated, Chen finally landed a deal with one major publisher, only to discover that he was dissatisfied with the substantial revisions they were suggesting. He promptly cancelled the traditional publishing contract and decided to publish the book himself. He compared various publishing options and chose Outskirts Press. "Their services do not end after the book is published," Chen stated. "They continue to provide excellent marketing advice, as well."

Outskirts Press understands that marketing is a huge part of an author’s success and, unlike most self-publishing firms, offer promotional advice and marketing services extending for years after publication. States CEO Brent Sampson, “Successful authors have the potential to separate themselves from the pack by publishing with a full-service, custom publishing company that provides support before, during, and after publication.”
