Virtual Book Tour: Verse for the Day, by Lincoln S. Kokaram

With the abundance of self-published authors, you have to come up with creative ways to market a self-published book.  While book tours are a great way to connect with your readers, they aren’t the most affordable method of promotion.  However, technology has made it possible for an alternative.

large

Take note from self-publishing Outskirts Press author, Lincoln S. Kokaram, who is taking his latest book, Verse for the Day, on tour – a virtual book tour, that is. He will be featured on several blogs over the weeks and months ahead so keep your eyes peeled to learn more about him and his book.

Luckily for us, Lincoln 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 Verse for the Day.


OP: Tell us a little bit about Verse for the Day.  What is it about?

Lincoln: This book is a Spiritual adjustment tool to help readers become more aware of the Divine intervention of the Holy Spirit in their daily lives. It will create tangible evidence of the presence of Jesus and how He impacts life – how He blesses; provides; protects; loves and forgives every day!

If this book is used as it is intended, relationships with Jesus will grow closer. People will have personal evidence of His presence. When trials and temptations to doubt, come (and they will), the physical evidence of the power of the Holy Spirit will equip people to be strong in faith and resist the temptations of the evil one.

This book could help people take their walk with the Holy Spirit to a higher level. Awareness empowers people to perform with confidence.

OP: Why did you decide to write this story?

Lincoln: To inspire people to walk closer to the Lord and become more aware of His Divine presence in their lives.

OP: How did you get your book published?

Lincoln: Self-Published through OutskirtsPress.com

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

Lincoln: Anyone who is looking for a guide to help them develop and live a closer relationship with Jesus.

OP: What is special about your book?  

Lincoln: It is simple, easy to read and understand.

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

Lincoln:  It is engaging as readers are encouraged to journal how God is blessing them; how they are serving Him and what they need to ask forgiveness for every day.

OP: Have you published any other books?

Lincoln: No

OP: Do you plan to publish more?

Lincoln: Already working on my second book; With P.A.S.S.I.O.N.©

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

Announcing One-Click Publishing for Christian Books!

picture1

You’ve probably heard the traditional rhyme before:

Something old,

something new,

something borrowed,

something blue,

and a silver sixpence in her shoe.

… and you’ve probably also heard about our One-Click Publishing packages if you’ve spent much time on our website at www.OutskirtsPress.com or reading our newsletters, blog posts, and emails. For those of you who are brand-new to Outskirts Press, however, these packages incorporate a range of services which make up, in many ways, some of our finest offerings and keep us a top-ranked self-publishing company by authors and third-party evaluators alike.

But what if you were looking to publish a Christian book? Is there a One-Click Publishing package for you? We are happy to announce that, due to popular demand, we have put together a new offering to meet that exact need—our One-Click Publishing package for Christian Books! This package will “borrow” the same level of quality service and range of stellar products our other One-Click packages are known for—Expedited Service, Professional Custom Cover Design, five hours of consultation with one of our Personal Marketing Assistants, and much more.  Better still, our One-Click Publishing package for Christian Books has been retooled to provide services tailored to the specific needs of Christian books, such as, Spring Arbor Distribution.

A true One-Click Publishing package is distinguished from all other options by its ease of use, and by the fact that the synergistic connection between packaged services means we can offer our award-winning services at steep discounts when sold as a single unit. Yes, there’s an upfront cost, but One-Clicks offer a far greater return on your investment than tucking a sixpence in your shoe.

Publishing packages like our One-Click Publishing for Christian Books provide a truly crucial service in helping preserve two of your most important resources: time and energy. If you, an author of a Christian work, find yourself pressed for time or struggling to put together the final printed product you desire, it might be a good time to look into our One-Click Publishing package for Christian Books.

If you’re an author of non-fiction, fiction, children’s, or otherwise spiritual literature, take a moment to look into all of our other available One-Click Publishing packages! We hope you’ll consider publishing with us at Outskirts Press, and if you have any questions you can find out more on our website (www.OutskirtsPress.com) or by contacting us by phone (1-888-672-6657) or live chat online.
