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 Outskirt Press. Am I happy with Outskirts Press? You'd better believe it!
