Outskirts Press, the country’s fastest growing self-publishing and book marketing company, now offers all authors — regardless of where they published — the opportunity to purchase promotional services for their books listed on Amazon.
July 27, 2010 – Denver, CO – Outskirts Press announced today it is now offering authors – regardless of where they have published – three a-la-carte options for promoting books on Amazon, as well as a 25% discount when they purchase all three at the same time.
“Outskirts Press is now making available to all authors these three unique marketing tools for their books, either individually or as a significantly discounted package,” Kelly Schuknecht, Outskirts Press Director of Author Support, said today. “Each of these options helps authors increase exposure for their books on Amazon and that exposure can result, of course, in more sales.”
The three a-la-carte Amazon options available through Outskirts Press are the Amazon Search Inside the Book submission, the Amazon keyword tag submission, and the Amazon Kindle edition. Alternatively, Outskirts Press offers all three options at a generous 25% discount with the all-inclusive Amazon Extreme Marketing Package, which includes a bonus copy of Sell Your Book on Amazon.
Books participating in Amazon’s Search Inside the Book program have been significantly more successful than books not using this program. Amazon’s Search Inside is the online equivalent of customers browsing through a book in a bookstore. Not only can viewers virtually flip through sections of a book, but the added online activity from this makes more accurate and effective search results and recommendations for each book.
The Amazon Keyword tag submission option also helps improve a book’s search results ranking on Amazon. Participating books are tagged with ten applicable keywords (“Tags”) on Amazon’s Product Details page, giving more weight to these terms in Amazon’s search results and providing more exposure for the book.
The third option Outskirts Press now offers to all self-publishing authors is the Amazon Kindle Edition. Amazon itself recently claimed that sales of its Kindle e-books are out-pacing hardback sales on its Amazon.com website. A Kindle Edition also allows self-publishing authors another direct revenue stream for their book as Outskirts Press claims no cut of the sales, leaving the author to earn between 30-70% as set directly with Amazon.

Sweetbread and Tattletale is now a picture book that anyone can buy on line at the
PublishAmerica bookstore. I sent the edited version to the publisher and they did a fine
job with the book.

Sweetbread and Tattletale
Tattletale—why…are you up in the tree! I’m playing Sweetbread. Well…you know, I can’t
come to you, I’m a dog. Dogs can’t climb trees. I wish, I could come to you—Tattletale.
If you don’t come down from there, I’m going to blame you if I start climbing this tree
and fall; dogs don’t climb trees—Tattletale…It’s against nature. Now…h…hold on—
Sweetbread; I’ll come down from here. I don’t want my b…b…best buddy…too fall and get hurt. Thank
God; I would have fell for sure—Tattletale. Tattletale—you’re my best friend. Well let
me…ease down from here…I don’t want to go fast…or I’ll fall. I’m taking my time. My claws are sharp.
Tattletale—why…do cats sharpen their claws— tell me…I’m clueless. Listen to me.
Sweetbread—cats sharpen their claws because of dogs. N…no, for real—Tattletale…you’re
kidding with me, I know you are. I’m sorry Sweetbread…it’s true. You mean that you and
I am not supposed to be friends. I can’t believe it. Sweetbread…I love you. I’m glad to be
out of the tree, I don’t know why cats enjoy climbing trees! Now—as far the other, this cat loves a dog.
This dog loves a cat. We’re buddies. We are good friends. We’ve been friends since the day
both of us were born. I’m glad we live in the same house with our masters. Yes—they
love us…we’re lucky to have good humans. It’s odd Sweetbread…we were born on the same day. I
want to ask you a question. Sure. Do you ever get the urge to chase me? I do sometimes.
Why is that, I don’t want to chase you. I get the urge…too run from you sometimes. I guess…
it’s my instinct. I trust you…Sweetbread. I would never hurt you…Tattletale. I know you wouldn’t.
This tree you just come down, I’m going to lift my back leg and relieve myself on this
tree, I like it. I mark my territory. I marked this tree because you like it…Tattletale. I
appreciate it…Sweetbread. I love you too. With you being a big bulldog, I’m glad you love me. Do you
ever regret me being a cat…Sweetbread, I hope not for our sakes. Tattletale…Tattletale…Tattletale,
you’re a cat—I wouldn’t have it any other way. We’re friends. As both of us walk, I’m
thinking you’re the best buddy. I’d say friend—but buddy sounds better. We’re comrades. Tattletale—
I agree. I hear our humans calling us. Listen. Tattletale…Tattletale—Sweetbread…Sweetbread,
come here…It’s time to come in…it’s late. Our humans love us. I know they do, we have a good
home…, I’m happy. I am too. Well the door is open. Let’s walk in the house. I’m going to lie
down on the floor, I’m tired. I’m lying down beside you. Sounds good…we’ll sleep some
before eating our food—I’m not that hungry. Look…, our humans are looking at us. Yes—I
believe we have the best humans in this world. I love our humans. I love our humans.
Well goodnight…Sweetbread, I’m snuggling next to you. Go ahead…Tattletale.
Look Frank…our two babies. A cat and dog—friends; Sweetbread and Tattletale look, as if, they will
be friends forever.
