That was the word-of-the-day for me the day my author’s copies arrived. I said the word 'unbelievable' so many times that day, I lost count.

The look of my book met every single one of my expectations and then some. I never realized that the vision for the book I had in my head since day one could be so fully and so easily realized.

A mere three months after initially contacting Outskirts, I’m a published author!

Unbelievable! With the help of my author rep, Michelle, and, of course, Chris (Director of Author Support), my book is an actual, three-dimensional object that others can buy. For anyone who wants to keep their manuscript exactly as they intended and have complete control over every aspect of the publishing process, Outskirts Press is your best option, too."

"I just wanted to tell you how happy I am with my book. The final product exceeded my expectations. Outskirts Press did a wonderful job.

Words cannot express the joy I am experiencing now. The professionalism and the courtesy that was displayed by my author representative Lora is immeasurable. I will not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone I know who wishes to publish their book.

My friends and family are piling up to get their copy. Many have complimented me on the cover design. The layout is awesome! I am sure I will be using Outskirts Press again in the near future. "
