1. How will people be able to buy my book once it is published?

Your book will be for sale online through many different book retailers such as:
  • Amazon
  • Barnes & Noble
  • Borders

Additionally, you receive your own free webpage (don't worry, we design it for you, but you may modify it whenever you want without any programming).

Your book will be distributed through wholesalers and publication databases like:
  • Ingram
  • Baker & Taylor
  • Bowkers Books-in-Print

2. How do you help me market and promote my book after publication?

No other publisher offers what we offer. The exclusive Outskirts Press Marketing COACH offers Creative Online Assistance, Coaching, and Help by sharing marketing tactics, promotional opportunities, and general recommendations via email for years after your book is published.

Your free author tool kit inside your Author's Center allows you to manage your free Author Webpage whenever you want. And you can produce (and modify) professional sales sheets whenever you need them.

We offer all the marketing materials you will need, including bookmarks, business cards, postcards and two different sizes of posters. Whatever you order is designed and shipped straight to your house. Not just templates that you have to print elsewhere. These are the real marketing materials featuring your book that you can immediately start using.

Plus, every book we publish receives its own Internet webpage, which you can customize with your book synopsis, a sample chapter, and you author biography. You can even change the content of your webpage whenever you want, and your changes are made instantly.

3. How do I get paid?

Every quarter Outskirts Press mails royalty checks via first-class mail ranging from hundreds to tens-of-thousands of dollars.

The royalty amount you earn is up to you. (Isn't that a refreshing idea?) Your publication process allows you to set your own retail price, pricing plan, author discount, and royalty in advance so you know all your pricing beforehand.

4. How do I know I can trust you?

Outskirts Press is a member in good standing with the Better Business Bureau.  In fact, we have an A+ rating with the BBB Online.

"To say that I am thoroughly impressed with the incomparable service I received from Outskirts Press would be a gross understatement. Simply put, there are no words to describe my over-the-moon reaction when I opened the shipment of my free author copies. The finished product far exceeded my wildest expectations - it was the perfect culmination of a working relationship that was absolutely professional from start to finish. I am hard at work on my second book and would not even remotely consider using any publisher other than Outskirts Press. Thank you for making my dream come true!"
