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.
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.
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."
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.”
