Make an Impression with a FREE Custom Cover

self publishing publishing promotion

Ever heard the line "Don’t judge a book by its cover"? The fact of the matter is, people do, and first impressions matter a great deal when it comes to creating a cover which will make a book stand out on a crowded bookshelf. But it’s not all bad news! You can take advantage of this pattern of behavior and make your book a standout no matter what company it keeps.

All you need is a custom cover! But what if you don't have the resources to make one yourself? Is it possible to acquire a custom cover without breaking the bank?

We have the solution!

For a limited time during the month of March, Outskirts Press will be offering a FREE Custom Cover Design (valued at $399) when new authors purchase one of our Ultimate or Full-Color Publishing Packages! All you need to do to participate is select one of the eligible publishing solutions, above, and enter the promotional code FreeCover at checkout.

We at Outskirts Press are dedicated to putting together high-quality publishing solutions and services for authors looking to make the next leap forward in publishing, and we are committed to making this process as simple and affordable as possible. To learn more about what’s included in each package, call us at 888-672-6657 (OP-BOOKS) or communicate with one of our staff using the live chat option on our website.

We know authors like you have many self-publishing options available to you; many of them are even free. But before you select "free" or "low-cost" publishing, consider the many advantages Outskirts Press offers that those other publishers don't.

Outskirts Press is ranked #1 in Self-Publishing Services by Top Consumer Reviews, thanks to our high level of service and affordable pricing. Our book publishing packages are designed to eliminate needless hours of confusing and frustrating DIY time required with "free" publishing. Every affordable publishing package from Outskirts Press comes with personal service that saves you time—and, in the long run, money:

  • Live, U.S.-based customer service from start to finish
  • Professional interior book formatting—saving you the time and hassle of figuring out how to submit print-ready files
  • Comprehensive publishing packages with everything you need to publish, including worldwide distribution
  • Affordable publishing options—such as professional editing and custom cover design—to help you achieve the most professional-looking book possible
  • You keep 100% of your book royalties, regardless of where the book is sold!

In addition to all these priceless benefits, Outskirts Press offers a number of affordable marketing options to help you sell more books, sooner.

Remember, "free" publishing isn't free if it costs you time you can't afford—time you could be spending making money from sales of your book! Let Outskirts Press give you the peace of mind that comes with a professional-looking book, and the jumpstart you need to start selling quickly.

It's easy to take the first step towards publishing your book with Outskirts Press by making a $35 down payment on a Publishing Package.
