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.

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.

John Sager, author of Places I’ve Been
I do believe it was worth it! This was a much different kind of novel, using many photos that I’ve collected over the years, all in color and it took a little longer than last time.

Top notch company with professionals who are willing to walk you through the entire publishing process. The entire team was knowledgeable, helpful, and extremely easy to work with! I came into the process as a first-time author who knew nothing about publishing a book. I was impressed with the ease of the process and the many tools available to authors to help create, publish, and market a book. I highly recommend!

Gina Simone, author of Whispers of Love: Spirit’s Messages from Heartbreak to Hope
I chose Outskirts Press as my publishing company because of the incredible reputation they hold in the industry for self publishers. Their website is user friendly. My Author Representative was always ready to rectify an issue or answer any questions. They take the stress out of the process of self publishing by streamlining the entire operation. My first-time author experience was made SO easy by working with Outskirts Press. They explained the process every step of the way, their editing and graphics team were a joy to work with, and even after my book was published, they offer marketing/selling/publicity information on how to expand your book’s outreach in the market. The vision I held in my head of this book coming to life, has manifested in my hands, all due to the professionalism and experience of Outskirts Press. Thank you!
