Jamie BeltPublishing Consultant
I live in California with my husband and two very spoiled rats - "the boys." I am an avid reader who loves writing, cooking, crafting, and fitness. The perfect weekend morning starts with a quick run and a trip to one of the local farmers' markets. My three children are all grown with children of their own, so I have nine grandchildren ranging from 8 months to high school age. I am active in my church and am also the Chaplain for the local American Legion. When I find a bit of sit-down time, I love to crochet and have started to reteach myself knitting. Finally, I'm also something of a nerd and am a complete sci-fi junkie, so if you have a science fiction manuscript, I can't wait to see it!

Collette Jackson-Fink, author of Daughters of TwilightOutskirts Press was amazing! Brie was outstanding and quickly handled any problems that I had. Jamie and Jackie were also awesome in helping me get through some very tough spots. The production team were professional and patient and I would recommend outskirts press to anyone who has a dream to write. You guys are fantastic! I look forward to working with you again!
Chinyere Echefu, author of The Indubitable BattleI have a lot of praises to give concerning the Outskirts Press. You people are good at what you do. You are well organized. The idea of giving each author an author representative makes the publishing work less cumbersome. This strategy makes it easy for the authors to communicate freely and easily with the entire publisher. I do not know how all author representatives behave to their authors but I would say I had the best. I wish to work with Lisa J again. She was patient with me throughout. Thank you Lisa.
I still have more to say and I will do it soon. God bless everyone who participated in making my publishing dream come true with less stress though I had no opportunity of knowing you all. It is my believe that if I stick with you longer, I will know you all as I know Lisa J and Jamie. Thank you Jamie. Outskirts you are well organized, thank you for all the encouragement and labor.
Jimmy Jimmy, author of World RebirthFrom my first contact Liz to Jamie, Justene and all that I have worked with, it has been an experienceIi couldn't have imagined. It was also a learning experience with me. Jamie and Justene had the patience of Angels. Thanks to the entire team. Am putting final touches to my second book.
Jeanine McGee, author of Lost and Found in Sea Isle CityIt was a wonderful experience. The publishing consultant, Jamie, was dynamite! She made the process seamless. Bridget, the author rep. was incredibly informative and laser focused. And Jackie was so efficient with the digital aspect. It took me two years to write this book and my husband, Dennis, researched independent publishing companies during that time. We both have come to realize that Outskirts Press was truly a blessing. Thank you, Outskirts, for your integrity and your enthusiasm for excellence. Great job!
Rod Lewin, author of The Carrizo ConundrumThis is my second publication with Outskirts Press. As with my first novel, everything was handled professionally, expeditiously and courteously. I appreciate all the work you do to make it easy on me, and as with the first book, the layout, interior formatting and especially the custom cover, were exceptional! Lisa Buckley was also, as with my first attempt, a great asset and I appreciate all she - and all your other staff - do to make this publishing effortless! Thanks Lisa, Anna, Jackie, Larry, Jamie and everyone else who worked on my book.
