Compare Outskirts Press Pricing
(details are below the chart)

self publishing advantages

Now you can compare the Outskirts Press publishing packages (Ultimate, Basic, Economy, Emerald) side by side against our 3 top competitors (Publisher A, Publisher U, and Publisher X).

This example is for a 288 page paperback book that was published with our Basic package. The author chose Price Plan 25 and set his retail price at $13.95.

Making sense of the chart is easier than it looks, and since it involves your book's pricing and profit, it's pretty important. Don't worry, I will explain it below.

The first graph shows the retail price for this book at $13.95 compared with what our competitors would set the retail price for. This is for the same 288 page paperback.

One of our advantages is that the author can set their own retail price (our pricing calculator sets the parameters). The higher you set your retail price, the higher your profit.

Now look at the next graph. Even with a lower, more competitive retail price, our author is making MORE MONEY on Amazon than with any other publisher! This $13.95 book can earn a Ultimate author over $3.50 each time it sells on Amazon. That's over 300% more than Publisher A pays.

No wonder so many published authors are switching to Outskirts Press and so many new authors are choosing to publish all their books with us.
