All it takes is a little thinking outside the box, and nowadays you can market a self-published book in a variety of affordable and impactful ways.

Join Katherine Zartman and Cost of Freedom as they appear in features and interviews (such as the one below) in the weeks and months ahead!


Luckily for us, Katherine was kind enough to answer a few questions as the tour was getting started so that we can give you a sneak peek into the mind of the creator of Cost of Freedom.

OP: Tell us a little bit about Cost of Freedom. What is it about?

Katherine: Cost of Freedom is a love story between a maimed veteran and the experienced, sensitive nurse he falls for.

OP: Why did you decide to write this story?

Katherine: I wrote this book out of a passion for veterans. I am a veteran myself, as was my older brother and our father, who was a World War II colonel. I’ve seen firsthand the suffering war demands of its combatants and perhaps my words will help readers understand the pain.

OP: What types of readers would be interested in this story?

Katherine: Seniors, veterans, caregivers and all that feel the passion to help others.

OP: What is special about your book?  

Katherine: The ability to reveal intimate details that only youth, not seniors, expect from a novel of this kind.

OP: What differentiates it from other books in the same category?

Katherine: The intuitive reach this unusual couple experience navigating the challenges presented to each.

OP: Have you published any other books? Do you plan to publish more?

Katherine: My first book, Lavender Moon, was published in March 2020. I currently have three other books in progress, including the sequel to Cost of Freedom (Cost of Freedom: Book Two), along with two psychological thrillers, The Alpha and The Hybrid, both due in summer of 2020.

OP: How can someone learn more about your book or purchase it?

Katherine: My book can be found on Amazon.com, as well as other retailers like Barnes and Noble; there is also a Kindle version, as well.

OP: Thanks for your time, Katherine! We look forward to learning more about you as you visit other bloggers!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Daughter of a WWII colonel, a Vietnam era veteran, mother of three, grandmother of six and great grandmother of one. As an author I always want my words to convey to the reader the same raw emotions, frailties, love and tears my characters possess.

10 Reasons to Customize Your Marketing Materials this July

Join Outskirts Press in celebrating our very own “Customized Marketing Month” this July with 10 great reasons to create personally-branded promotional materials to help you market your book with professionalism and success.

1. Every author needs a business card to include in press kits and at author events. What better way to promote your book and yourself at the same time than with professionally designed and personally branded business cards that feature your book’s cover on one side and your contact/sales information on the other?
2. Custom bookmarks are a wonderful promotional item to pass out because people rarely throw them away; they actually keep them, use them, and see them over and over! Take advantage of that marketing opportunity by ensuring that those promotional bookmarks promote your book in a customized and professionally-branded way.
3. Posters serve two unique purposes that other promotional materials cannot. They’re great for book signings and other events where you need some large presentation pieces framed upon your table or hanging from your “space” to draw attention to your book. Additionally, posters are great for framing and hanging on the wall in your home and/or office. Between a framed movie poster and a framed poster of your own book cover, we know which we would recommend for available wall space. Talk about motivational!
4. Postcards are the most effective direct mail piece because they require a lower postage rate, offer a high-quality presentation of your cover, and contain book and ordering information on the reverse side, all presented in a customized promotional way that everybody is already accustomed to receiving in the mail.
5. If you have a professionally designed custom cover (and if you received one with Outskirts Press, we’re already betting that you do), customized promotional materials offer a beautiful way to showcase your book’s artistry in a variety of highly-effective ways.
6. To celebrate “Customized Marketing Month” you can save 10% instantly on 500 customized bookmarks with the promotion code bookmarksave through July 11 if you’ve published with Outskirts Press.
7. Continue celebrating “Customized Marketing Month” with Outskirts Press between July 12-18, and Outskirts Press authors can receive an instant 10% discount on 500 custom business cards with the promotion code: buscards
8. July 19-25 is the week Outskirts Press authors can save 10% instantly on your very own customized postcards (500 count) with promotion code: postcards.
9. The last week of “Customized Marketing Month” (July 26-31) brings an instant 10% discount to Outskirts Press authors who order 25 small posters that feature the front cover of your book. Simply enter promotion code smposters at check-out.
10. Would you rather get everything you need all at once and save even MORE in the process?

Congratulations to Andrew Ceroni’s Book-Cover-of-the-Month Award!

AC-Book-Cover-Award

And we’re happy to say, the results speak for themselves!

Summary

CIA agents must play catch-up in order to stop powerful men in Homeland Security and the Defense Department from overthrowing the President and his administration.

Escalating gang violence in Denver, Colorado, and in other large U.S. cities captures the attention of the first term President. He wants a solution, and he wants it NOW—but legislation takes years. The Director of Homeland Security suggests that the remedy to the deteriorating situation may be a highly classified program deep within the special charter of FEMA known as Annex K. This deep-black program, nicknamed STARDUST, would be executed beneath the heaviest cloak of secrecy and without the informed consent of Congress.

When the CIA sends Agent Dave McClure to Denver to investigate inexplicable lethal violence being waged with advanced weaponry against organized street gangs, McClure discovers that what has been unleashed is a sinister solution far worse than the problem. He unearths a nightmarish plot to do much more than eliminate gangs in America—rather, it’s an attempt to seize the military district of Washington and overthrow the federal government. McClure’s own life is now at especially high risk, and the CIA must act quickly and with overwhelming force.

But time is short…and the clock is ticking!
