One of the World’s Greatest Book Fairs Kicks Off Today in Frankfurt

It’s become an enormous annual tradition: The massive Frankfurt Book Fair kicks off today, running through October 18, and welcoming upwards of a quarter-million book industry guests from all around the world. From self-publishing authors to famous authors to agents, talent scouts and publishing giants, anyone and everyone is drawn to this massive, annual international event.

The Frankfurt International Book Fair is by far the largest and most important book fair in the world. While other international book events could exceed Frankfurt’s 250,000-plus attendance, the multi-hall, mile-long fairground in Frankfurt hosts the largest contingent of publishing professionals of any book fair anywhere, bar none.

The Frankfurt Book Fair is a meeting place for the industry’s experts: publishers, booksellers, agents, film producers and, of course, authors just like you. With more than 7,300 exhibitors from 100 countries, upward of 250,000 visitors and more than 10,000 journalists, it is the most important marketplace for books, media, rights and licenses worldwide.

The Frankfurt International Book Fair is held in mid-October annually at the Frankfurt Fair in Frankfurt, Germany. While it’s too late to get in on this year’s event, slated for October 14-18, we can help you get your existing and as-yet-unpublished books ready by next summer — plenty of time to take part in the 2016 Frankfurt International Book Fair!

Remember, you can save 25% on four major book events throughout the year (London, BEA, Beijing, Frankfurt) with our Global Book Tour marketing package.

2015 Beijing Book Fair Starts Today!

Thousands of authors, booksellers, literary agents – and, of course, the book-buying public – gather annually at the Beijing International Book Fair.

The 20th annual Beijing International Book Fair (BIBF) kicked off today at the China International Exhibition Center. Today through August 29th, thousands of authors from around the world will gather at the fair to display their work. It’s also a one-of-a-kind opportunity to mix, mingle and network with booksellers, publisher, literary agents and other book-related professionals on the lookout for talent and compelling books.

No other country has experienced the growth in the world marketplace that China has, and that impact has been greatly felt in the publishing and bookselling world. Blossoming readership in China represents an enormous opportunity for authors to take advantage of the growing demand for book translations, and publishers are scrambling to feed the frenzy. There is surging consumer demand for all types of books, and getting your book in front of this potential market can have a tremendously positive effect on the success of your book.

With the 2015 event now it full swing, it’s too late to get in on BIBF for this year; however, registrations for the Beijing International Book Fair are currently being accepted for the 2016 event – why not plan ahead for an exciting international trip?

Outskirts Press published authors who are interested in participating in the fair next year can find details and ordering information in the Author’s Center (or find out how to save 25% on all four book fair events throughout the year with the Global Book Tour package).

The world-famous London Book Fair kicks off tomorrow and runs through April 16, welcoming more than 1,500 exhibitors, and tens of thousands of publishers, booksellers, literary agents, librarians, media and of course traditional and London Book Fair in Olympia, West Londonself-publishing authors to one of the largest publishing industry trade shows in the world. More than 100 countries are represented as attendees gather at the global marketplace, situated amidst famous London attractions that highlight the UK’s rich literary history and longstanding cultural ties to nearly all of near and far East Asia, Africa, Australia and New Zealand.

This year, the 44th year, the Fair returns to Olympia, West London. This location places all the action near the heart of Kensington, the seat of the Monarchy since 1689. When not hobnobbing with movers and shakers in the publishing industry, fair-goers will have access to all the fabulous historical sites, landmarks and unrivaled shopping opportunities the area affords. But the real appeal of the London Book Fair is the exposure that comes right to you in the spacious and bustling event space.

If you missed out this time around, don’t worry: There are plenty of other chances to gain valuable book fair exposure in exotic locales throughout the year (Bologna, Frankfurt, Beijing, New York and more). Talk with your Personal Marketing Assistant about a Global Book Tour through Outskirts Press to get in on the action in late 2015 and 2016.

It’s National Poetry Month! Celebrate by Using a Poetry Formatting Kit to Publish Your Own Book

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
It’s National Poetry Month –
What’s a self-publishing poet to do?

Celebrate, that’s what! Founded by the Academy of American Poets in 1996, National Poetry Month is held every April. Together, schools, publishers, libraries, booksellers and poets all across the country celebrate poetry and its vital place in American arts culture through a variety of events, from poetry readings to full-fledged festivals. It’s only fitting to choose this month as the time to contribute your own verses to the art of poetry – and it’s much easier than you might think!

With help from Outskirts Press, you have the power to quickly and easily publish a fully-formatted, professionally-designed volume of your works with our affordable and convenient Poetry Formatting Kit. Formatting elements like justification, centering, page spreads, margins, page numbering, graphical elements, and title drops – elements that can take a writer a great deal of time to set up – are done for you, allowing you to simply cut and paste your work into a pre-formatted document.
Each Poetry Formatting Kit comes with two document files:

Use the “Easy” file …

  • as building blocks to add more pages
  • move poems around
  • add or replace included graphics
  • further customize your book however you want

Or use the “Easier” file …

  • to simply cut and paste up to 30 poems directly into the file
  • add each respective title above each of your poems
  • accommodate a wide variety of poetry lengths

When you’re ready to publish your book of poetry, you will have a beautiful, professionally-formatted and print-ready manuscript (in 6×9 trim) to submit as-is for high-quality black/white printing.

Are you ready to get started with the Poetry Formatting Kit?
