A Word from a Basic Author

Outskirts Press, and my representative, Lisa, are the definition of professional. I am Keith Mosher, author of On a Sphere's Edge. This was my first novel, but there are more to come. The publishing story, along with the writing, was a long and twisted path. I initially self-published as an ebook, and then as an audio book, knowing all along I had to get the novel in print. I did a good deal of research and opted for Outskirts Press, and I'm glad I did. The process was clear, clean, and effortless. Lisa and the rest of the team at Outskirts were helpful and accommodating, even when I requested some out-of-sequence changes to the cover. Thank you Outskirts Press.
