The Reader Views 2010 Literary Award Finalists have been announced and Outskirts Press published more finalists  than any other publisher.

In fact, we recently received a wonderful unsolicited email from the owner of Reader Views, Irene Watson.  Through Reader Views, Irene comes in contact with a LOT of books from a LOT of self-publishing companies.  She granted us permission to share her recent email with our viewers.  Here’s what she had to say:

I’m very impressed with the quality of books that come from Outskirts Press.  We get a lot of self-published books and many are horribly (that’s the most gentle word I could find) produced. The quality just isn’t up to par.  Yours match any large traditional publishing company to a T. Occasionally we do review a book that hasn’t been properly edited but we know that’s the choice of the author.  If only, if only…there was a way to instill into the authors the importance of editing.

In fact, I am so impressed I recommended Outskirts Press to my assistant for her book. It’s in production now with your company.


Winners will be announced by today, March 3rd, 2011. Congratulations (and good luck) to the following Outskirts Press Finalists:

    1. Hi Wendy! We know you won and congratulations. We’re waiting for your book to come out of revision status so we can add it to the list since currently your webpage isn’t accessible and your book isn’t available for ordering during the revision. When your book is back in published status we’ll add your cover and link to your webpage. Congratulations again!
