Outskirts Press Featured Book of the Week

Both the email and blog post feature your book cover image, plus a button linked to your book's Amazon sales page, just like you see in the example above. This makes it extremely easy for readers to purchase your book and write reviews.

Yes, Amazon offers the ability to send emails like this manually, and you should certainly do that for your own targeted list of friends and family, too. But with this option, you get thousands of email recipients, plus exposure on our three most popular social media channels (our blog, our Facebook page and our X (formerly Twitter) account). You will receive a free tip sheet upon purchase with helpful tips on how to get the most out of your Amazon Featured Book-of-the-Week exposure.

Spots will fill up fast, so reserve your spot as soon as possible.

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 or 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 X (formerly 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.
