Down Payment on Book Publishing
Start your full-service, high-quality publishing process today with a small down payment.
Do you have to pay this fee to get started? No! You may call us toll-free right now (our number is 888-672-6657), or schedule a free consultation at your convenience.
This small down-payment is if you want your manuscript evaluation and custom publishing quote before you pay for a package, or if you wish to start a payment plan. Either way, your deposit is automatically applied toward your book publishing service -- no extra cost! Outskirts Press is the only full-service publisher where you can start publishing with just a $35 down payment. Most other publishers require 50% or 100% of the publishing payment up-front. This is just the beginning of the benefits to publishing with Outskirts Press.
What's included with your down payment?
You will receive professional guidance on the best publishing package for your book and you will get all your publishing questions answered and receive personal help getting started on publishing your high-quality publication.

We will identify strengths in your manuscript and point out opportunities to improve it. Select manuscripts will also receive a free edit of the first 1,000 words. Even if your manuscript isn't done yet, we can help motivate you.
Every production team includes your publishing consultant, your author representative, your book designers, your title production supervisors, and your production manager. Depending upon what optional services you order your team may also include editors, illustrators, indexers, marketing assistants, etc.

Some words from Outskirts Press authors
Monica BouvierMy experience publishing my first book, In Search of Mr Wonderful, The Journey From Myth To Madness, with Outskirts Press was, and still is, phenomenal! I have never been treated in such a professional, supportive and relaxing manner. My dream of becoming a published author came true this August and I have not stopped receiving compliments on the book and its custom cover design yet. Saying thank you doesn't seem strong enough to say and show how you have made me feel but it is all I have. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Debra P. WhiteheadWow! My books look amazing. Outskirts Press made my lifelong dream come true. From the very beginning, I felt like I was the important one in the process.
Joy AndreasenFrom start to finish, my experience with Outskirts Press has been remarkable! I am really happy with the finished product, and all the helpful hints have been most useful. I am reading the daily emails containing lots of useful information on marketing. My book has only been out for a short time, but so far the public reaction as been nothing but positive. Thanks, Outskirts, for an incredible job!
