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.

Kay Rickenbaugh, author of Dear Tallulah
As a first-time author who is not much of a techie, it was great to have my Author Representative there to guide me and provide great instructions. As I am out of the country a lot, I could not believe how quickly my book was published. Using the internet was great. It was a great cover design that your team came up with. I just wanted you to know how pleased I am.

Suzanne Liff, author of Smarter Than You Think: Accessing Your Personal Powers to Triumph in College
I made the right choice with Outskirts Press. It was a bit daunting going it alone in the world of self-publishing. While I loved my autonomy, I was never alone. I felt guided and supported by my Author Representative and the talents of the design and production team. They listened, respected my ideas, responded to every detail, and offered wonderful options. The book totally reflects my vision for this special, reader-friendly text for college students. Thank you so much OP.

Kimberly Arms Shirk, author of Remote Fears & Silver Linings: In all of life’s challenge there comes a Silver Lining…Can you find it?
Thank you Outskirts Press for helping me successfully publish my first book, Remote Fears & Silver Linings. After a devastating electrical accident that almost took my life it has been a dream to share my story so that others might find hope in the midst of tragedy. For all of the ways that you have walked me through the publishing process and the many answered questions from a journalist, thank you so very much!

Douglas Toal, author of The Champions of Anna’s Mill
Outskirts Press is the best self-publishing company and I have been very pleased with my experience. My wife presented me with the Outskirts Press Publishing package as a Christmas gift. I wrote the book twenty years ago but I received no interest from traditional publishers and the manuscript collected dust since then. This experience has inspired me to continue writing and I’ve decided to create two novels from my original work. My second novel is currently being written and I will be sure to use Outskirts Press as my publisher.
