Outskirts Press reviews by published memoir author Diane Dettmann.

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

Twenty-Eight Snow Angels is my second publishing experience with Outskirts Press. Once the book was completed and, in my hands, I fell in love with the custom cover and the photos that were integrated into the text added such a warm and personal touch. The positive reader response to my memoir, Twenty-Eight Snow Angels, makes my heart soar! Many thanks to Outskirts Press.

Outskirts Press reviews by published autobiography author George Machado.

Memoir author published by Outskirts Press.

Outskirts Press has been a great partner in the process of writing and publishing my book Horns and Halos. Jamie and Dana were great to work with. They were professional, supportive, and excellent communicators.

Writing a book and publishing it can be a grind! It is work and takes dedication, persistence, and commitment. I felt the team at Outskirts Press stood with me during the entire experience. If they did not have the answer right away, they made sure they found out and communicated with me promptly.

I tip my hat to Outskirts Press and thank them for a job well done! Jaimie and Dana were the absolute best!
