Outskirts Press Benefits

self publishingAre you publishing a book? Say good-bye to the rejection of traditional publishers and the two-year publishing cycle.  Say good-bye to the hassles of independent self-publishing, like guessing print-runs, managing inventory, and the responsibility of order fulfillment.

Say hello to the flexibility and control of self-publishing combined with the full-service support and confidence of a book publishing company, all under one roof. 

Outskirts Press offers you the best of both worlds by combining the advantages of independent self-publishing with the advantages of traditional book publishing.  Before, during, and after publication you will receive the assistance of a dedicated group of publishing professionals, all the while maintaining 100% of  your publishing rights and 100% of your profits.  With our Private Label Imprint and ISBN option, you can even own your own ISBN assigned directly by R.R. Bowker (for 20% less than they charge you).
