Monthly Outskirts Press Newsletter

And the winner is...




Each year, we at Outskirts Press are impressed — and overwhelmed — by your entries in our annual “Show Us Your Love” contest which celebrates Valentine’s Day and Self-Publishing. The level of interest we see affirms our dedication to providing a rich and varied range of self-publishing services to authors looking to take the next step toward publication … and it inspires us to outdo ourselves, year after year, in making your dreams a reality. Thank you, one and all, for the love you’ve shown. Your success is our success.

And without further ado, the first-place winner is … Peter Springer, author of They Call Me Mom.

In his video, Peter shares his positive experience publishing with Outskirts Press and some valuable book marketing advice. “One thing I’m finding throughout this process is you can’t be afraid to put yourself out there.” Peter not only recorded a 10 minute video but submitted a selfie sporting his custom book t-shirt and displaying his promotional posters and bookmarks. For his efforts, Peter received the most votes and wins a brand new, HP Touch Screen Laptop Computer. Congratulations, Peter!
