Award-winning, self-published novels by independent writers published by Outskirts Press, one of the best self-publishing companies in the industry.

Outskirts Press reviews by award-winning self published fiction author Andrew Ceroni.

Author of 6 award-winning thriller books published by Outskirts Press.

Six books, SNOW MEN, MERIDIAN, THE RED SHORE, SPECIAL MEANS, IN THE BLACK and DAVID'S SLING—four 1st Place Awards from the Colorado Independent Publishers Association's EVVY Awards and four Outskirts Press Best Book of the Year Awards! How could I possibly ask for more?

DAVID'S SLING is the sixth novel I have published with Outskirts Press. The reason for that is simple. Without question, they are the absolute best in the wilderness of independent publishers. The OP teams I have worked with are a great bunch of professionals who know their business exceedingly well and made this latest novel the absolute best it could be. None better. You are all top-notch, first class, and I thank you for all the awesome efforts you’ve made on my behalf.

Outskirts Press reviews by award-winning self published fiction author Jane Gandolfo.

Author of 5 award-winning mystery books published by Outskirts Press.

Several years ago when I decided to write my first book, I searched diligently for a company that offered the quality options and support that I felt I required. Coming from a background in advertising and public relations as well as being the owner of an antique business, I knew from personal experience and from the trade that a lot of the outfits calling themselves "experts" to self-published authors were anything but. The horror stories were abundant!

I decided on Outskirts Press partly as a leap of faith and partly from their excellent track record. I'm delighted to say that my decision to trust Outskirts with "my baby" has paid off many times over. I am currently writing my fifth novel and will once again put my manuscript into their hands. The customer service is excellent and I have never doubted the skills of the editors, proofreaders, cover artists and author representatives that I have been assigned to work with.

I have won two CIPA EVVY Awards which would not have been possible without Outskirts Press. Am I happy with Outskirts Press? You'd better believe it!
