Reviews of your book greatly enhance this option so make sure to have at least one review on Amazon.
Frequently Asked Questions
When will my book be featured?
Books are featured on a first come, first served basis. This is a very popular option as authors love having their book featured on our Self-Publishing News blog (http://selfpublishingnews.com) a few months after publication. This delay gives you time to get reviews for your book—because you will get better results with this service if your book has several good reviews. Reviews sell books and people rarely buy books will no reviews.
Can Outskirts Press post a review for me on Amazon? How do I post my Readers Favorite ror Blue Ink review on Amazon.
You can add positive reviews to your book's Amazon sales page through your Author Central account at authorcentral.amazon.com or you can have Outskirts Press optimize your Amazon listing for you as part of our popular Amazon Launch Bundle. The reviews you post yourself through Author Central won't go into the "Review" section, they'll go somewhere better—into the Description section, which is higher up on your sales page and therefore more visible to browsers.
Will my book be featured on Amazon?
Your book will be featured on the Self-Publishing News Blog, the Outskirts Press Facebook Page, the Outskirts Press Twitter account, and emailed directly to approximately 37,000 readers and writers. Each feature email and posting contains direct links to Amazon so buyers can easily purchase your book.

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.

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.

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. A truly amazing company with a heart. Deepest gratitude!
