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. An author who is skilled at communicating their ideas to others can very well write their own ticket. The challenge is that far too many authors don't know how to "network" their way into more sales.
The Outskirts Press Global Book Tour is a good way to effortlessly network with others not only within the author's home city/state/country, but in countries around the world. Imagine having a personal assistant who can sell a potential buyer on your book. That's "hands off" international book marketing at its finest.
Fasten your seatbelts -- the Outskirts Press Global Book Tour option takes your book around the world.
The best part is -- you don't 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.
All aboard! The next stop is the USA, home to the annual BookExpo event. The event has taken place in different locations, major cities throughout the states, although New York is the most consistent host in recent years.
Every year the BookExpo welcomes over 100,000 international attendees, authors, publishers, agents, and buyers. While the attendance is international, the focus is distinctly American, with American books, publishers, and authors receiving the main interest.
BEIJING INTERNATIONAL BOOK FAIR
Next Stop... Beijing, China...
No other country has experienced the increase that China has on the world marketplace, and the readership in China represents an enormous opportunity (and gap that needs to be filled) for translations and publishers seeking to feed the frenzy. There is surging consumer demand for all types of books.
FRANKFURT BOOK FAIR
Our final destination -- Frankfurt, Germany, home to the Frankfurt International Book Fair.
Each year, nearly 10,000 publishing professional and industry insiders converge on this event, which hosts over 50% more international publishers than Book Expo.
Are the tours effective?
For the right author, the tours are very effective. There's an opportunity to have your book put into the hands of book publishing industry professionals who can serve as a stepping stone to enhancing your writing career.

- A Self-Help book quintupled (yes, 5x) their average book sales following the events.
- A Religious book more than doubled sales.
- A History book sold 140% more books following the event.
Can it happen to you? Yes! These are real authors who self-published their book just like you!
