A word from an author about the Book Marketing Specialist...
My budget was low, but I listened to Outskirts Press' advice in terms of what you do once its published. And lets face it, the point of publishing it is to get it out there. So I invested in the Book Marketing Specialist option.
My Book Marketing Specialist phoned me in no time, and considering she is in the US and I am in Australia, I was very impressed. She was supportive and animated and gave me motivation and reassurance that there was someone out there who cared about making my book visible to the world.
She wrote a great submission letter and sent it to some radio stations and it worked! I am doing my first radio interview in October. She also sent me lists of other radio stations I can tackle and other helpful info.
In addition to this she set up a blog, as I wouldn’t have had a clue. She created a great article and circulated it, keeping my name and the book in the media. She really has guided me on my journey as a new author.
Thank you to Outskirts Press for giving me this valuable option. Without it, it’s a no brainer; you really are on your own!"Courtney J. Webb, award-winning author of Immaculate Deception

My representative Jamie was always extremely professional and helpful during the entire process of my book publication. She always responded very quickly to requests and was always helpful throughout the entire process. She is a great role model and a great asset to the Outskirts Press family. I will highly recommend Outskirts Press to my friends and associates and also look forward to doing more business in the future. I am extremely pleased with my book publication and consider this a major milestone in my life . Thank you all very much...
Lawrence N. Weston
author of Avoiding Self Imposed Adversities
From the beginning, and throughout the process of publishing my first book, I felt that I was in the hands of a pro. Dana always took the time to answer my questions in detail and swiftly, and if she didn't have 100% confidence, she researched the question and got back to me. I was very pleased with her and I am also thankful that I was paired with her as an Author Rep.

Bridget, as well as the entire Outskirts Press team working with me, are exceptional. They held my hand through the entire process in addition to providing me with welcomed support and encouragement. I am looking forward to our next project together. I have recommended Outskirts Press to several freelance authors in my area. Thank you for making a potentially hectic journey so enjoyable and so satisfying.

I was very happy with my author rep's responses to me. She did a superb job of answering my questions and helping me through the editing process. She was always available when I needed her. I'm delighted with the outcome--my book looks good and it's selling! Thank you.

A great experience with Outskirts Press. I learned a lot in this process. I will do it all over again. Thank you so much.
Esther A. Ota
author of Children: My Heritage - A Testimony
The one-on-one with Lisa was great. Especially the phone call picking out styles, font, cover template etc. She even got a vote on the color. I so wanted to have my daughter's painting as the art work on the cover and she gave me a way to do that. Her guidance helped turn my dream into a reality and sometimes it is still hard to believe until I look at my book. Thank you.
Nancy L. Regas
author of The Art of Being a School Counselor
What a blockbuster learning experience I had being a part of self publishing with Outskirts Press! I felt empowered to the next challenge by both Allison and Dana. Their professional guidance and clear instructions when I needed help was crucial to feeling I could tackle the next step. I look forward to the experience with the marketing team. Thanks, Outskirts Press.
