Self Publishing Authors in ForeWord Magazine

ForeWord Magazine is a bi-monthly journal that is delivered to librarians, booksellers, agents, and other industry professionals. Additionally, ForeWord is sent directly to small press buyers at the chains (B&N, Borders, Chapters, Books-A-Million, etc). ABA’s Booksense also requests 500 copies of each issue for delivery direct to their members. ForeWord Magazine also is placed in the hands of agents and editors at larger houses, who may be looking for leads to bring into their fold from the small press sector.

All told, the ForeWord circulation is approximately 85% librarians, 12% bookstores, and 3% publishing professionals.

Now you can reach this influential readership with a Co-Op advertisement. Outskirts Press handles all the details for its authors.

Here’s a sample of the Outskirts Press full page, full color author co-op.


Co-Op Advertising allows you to secure premium, full-color exposure for your book in a high-quality trade publication for a minimal amount of money. Your book will occupy a 2″ x 2.5″ space along with 11 other Outskirts Press titles within a full-color, full-page ad. Your ad space will include a full color cover image, an abbreviated synopsis, the ISBN, and retail price. All books will include retail and wholesale ordering information.BONUS: If you have the Retail Returns Option, your participating ISBN(s) will be indicated as being fully returnable through Ingram — a little tidbit buyers are particularly interested in.
