The book provided a user-friendly refresher. And, just as importantly, it helped us all keep a sense of humor during a stressful period.” ---Christie Peck, Parent "The best college counseling book that I have ever read. It truly gets to the essence of what choosing a college is REALLY about." --Dr. Alicia Acey, Adolescent Psychologist “Concise, thorough and powerful. Patrick O’Connor, one of our nation’s giants in the college counseling arena, has hit a grand slam with this guidebook. Frank, honest and fun, the book helps students navigate this sometimes-daunting process without having to, in effect, ‘add another course’ in order to understand its nuances.” ---Raymond Brown, Dean of Admissions, Texas Christian University “Given the contemporary madness which characterizes the college application process, the novice and experienced parent will greatly appreciate the substantial, practical advice contained in this manual.” --Lori Lutz, Parent

From the beginning, and throughout the process of publishing my first book, I felt that I was in the hands of a pro. Dana always took the time to answer my questions in detail and swiftly, and if she didn't have 100% confidence, she researched the question and got back to me. I was very pleased with her and I am also thankful that I was paired with her as an Author Rep.

I am looking forward to our next project together. I have recommended Outskirts Press to several freelance authors in my area. Thank you for making a potentially hectic journey so enjoyable and so satisfying.

The one-on-one with Lisa was great. Especially the phone call picking out styles, font, cover template etc. She even got a vote on the color. I so wanted to have my daughter's painting as the art work on the cover and she gave me a way to do that. Her guidance helped turn my dream into a reality and sometimes it is still hard to believe until I look at my book. Thank you.

Their professional guidance and clear instructions when I needed help was crucial to feeling I could tackle the next step. I look forward to the experience with the marketing team. Thanks, Outskirts Press.
