Introduce your book to libraries, bookstores, media, reviewers, bloggers and readers by running a quarter page full-color ad along with a free preview of your first chapter in this catalog for three consecutive months.

For more information, scroll down to the Product Details section below.

As a published author one of your goals may be to get your book into a library or independent book store.  First Chapter Preview Library Distribution promotes your book's first chapter to libraries, bookstores, buyers, readers, and more!  This increased exposure can help your book be discovered.  

With First Chapter Preview Library Distribution, your book cover, synopsis, pricing information and ordering details will run for three consecutive months in a quarter page ad in First Chapter Plus, a monthly catalog where viewers/customers can download and preview the first chapter of your book.  Those who are interested in buying copies will have all the ordering details right there in the catalog for their convenience, and your benefit.  

Here is a sample of the quarter page ad, which includes a full-color image of your cover, synopsis information, title information, and a link to the first chapter of your book.  Buyers are more apt to buy your book if they can preview the first chapter in advance.

Outskirts Press will handle all of the submission details for you, including creating a secure PDF file of the first chapter.  Outskirts Press will send you the catalog via email when your ad first appears.  Your book will appear in the catalog for three consecutive months for maximum exposure.

Brenda Marie Black, author of The Bella Rose & Dianthus Bobby
Thanks to the entire team at Outskirts Press! As a first-time author, there’s been much I’ve learned about getting a book published and I am glad Outskirts Press was recommended to me by an author friend who was published with Outskirts Press. Indeed, my publishing experience with Outskirts Press has been rewarding and positive; and, I received guidance and assistance along the way. The quality of my book in all versions is outstanding.

It’s been a marvelous experience, having eight books published by Outskirts Press. My Author Representative was remarkable, smart, kind, and helpful and she has coddled me through it all. And all the others! Thank you everyone.

Rick Lawin, author of Legend of Tierra del Puma
I’m new at this writing stuff and self-publishing. And, being a guy, I have a hard time reading directions! But, I took the plunge. My initial contact with Outskirts quickly responded to my emails then did several telephonic follow-ups with me. Her knowledge and honest assessments of my needs convinced me to fly with Outskirts. In a world of electrons and emails, it is refreshing to deal with folks who are professional, know their craft and show a personal side. Please ensure my thank you goes to all involved in this project. If I am crazy enough to do this again, it will be Outskirts that will bear the brunt of my attempts to scribble words into readability.
