Make Sure Your Book is Going Places!
Networking is a powerful marketing tool—as a matter of fact, it's one of the most powerful tools, especially when it comes to international book marketing. The Outskirts Press's Global Book Tour is a great way to effortlessly network with industry professionals on a global scale. Get your book in front of:
- foreign publishers
- literary agents
- copyright dealmakers
- global licensers
- digital media companies
- film and production companies across print, audio, TV, film and digital channels
- distribution companies
- and more...
Translation is how words travel the world—it is the basis for cultures to respect diversity and understand on another. Securing literary translation rights is a big part of these events; and a huge opportunity for self-publishing authors—make sure your book is a part of that.
Imagine having a publicist on-site at these events who can promote your book to these industry insiders. That's "hands off" international book marketing at its finest.
Prepare for departure as the Outskirts Press Global Book Tour takes your self-published book around the world!
The best part is—you don't even have to leave your living room!
LONDON BOOK FAIR
Our first (and quite possibly, most exciting) stop is London, England, home to the annual London Book Fair.
Because this event is recognized as one of the most important spring publishing fairs, you have many capitalizing opportunities for exposing your book to key industry contacts like acquisitions agents, editors and translation rights agents. Make your book the story at this event!
Next Stop...Beijing, China...
BEIJING INTERNATIONAL BOOK FAIR
No other country has experienced the increase that China has on the world marketplace, and the readership in China represents an enormous opportunity—and a huge gap that needs to be filled. Chinese publishers are actively looking for English language content to sell all over China.
Over 30,000 industry professionals attend this event including publishers, distributors, literary agents, consumers, digital media companies, film and production companies, bookstores and distribution companies.
Last Stop... Frankfurt, Germany...
FRANKFURT BOOK FAIR
Our final destination—Frankfurt, Germany, home to the Frankfurt Book Fair (aka Frankfurter Buchmesse).
Each year, over 36,000 publishing professional and industry insiders converge on this event to find the best new voices in publishing.

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.

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
Outskirts Press has perfected the art of self-publishing. Their process is simple and seamless with everything happening in a timely manner, giving authors complete control over how their book will appear inside and out. And the people there are fantastic. They’re friendly, knowledgeable, courteous, patient and quick to reply to emails. What more can an author ask?
Needless to say, I’ve found a home here at Outskirts Press.

Outskirts Press changed my life for the better. They turned my adoption memoir into a book that is not only beautiful to look at, it is pleasurable to read, easy to purchase online, and in less than a month already has had a profound impact on many people.
