Official Outskirts Press EVVY Award Nominees

The EVVY Awards recognize excellence in self-published books. Each fall, approximately 5% of the books published by Outskirts Press become finalists for official Outskirts Press nomination by receiving an invitation to participate from Outskirts Press.

Exemplary Outskirts Press books are nominated by the Author Support Department and OP Executive Team for submission to the EVVY Awards in the fall of the year of their copyright. For example, this past November select books with a copyright date of 2009  were invited to participate in the 2010 EVVY Awards by receiving an invitation via email from our Director of Author Support.

All the books published with our Diamond and Pearl packages are automatically eligible for EVVY Award Nominee consideration, but not all Diamond and Pearl books receive an official nomination. What makes a good EVVY Award Nominee? The same thing that makes any good award-winning book:  A fantastic cover, strong, well-written content, and copyediting. These are the cornerstones of any good book. Fortunately, Outskirts Press offers the optional services necessary to turn an average book into a good one, and a good book into an award-winning one!

So, without further ado, please join us in congratulating this year’s Official Outskirts Press EVVY Award Nominees:
