Outskirts Press offers self-publishing authors another bright solution to their marketing challenges with its new option to have their book reviewed professionally by well-known and well-respected Kirkus Indie.

 June 7, 2011 – Denver, CO – Outskirts Press, the fastest growing self-publishing and book marketing company, announced today the release of its new Kirkus Guaranteed Review service. With this effective new marketing option, an author can get his or her book into the hands of a reviewer who is passionate about writing reviews and who will provide one hundred percent honest feedback that can be used by an author as a promotional tool.

Founded in 1933, Kirkus has built up a longstanding reputation within the publishing industry as an unbiased and trusted reviewer of new books.  Kirkus’ Indie reviews now offer self-published authors the same candid and professional reviews as their traditional publishing house book reviews, and because of the prestige of a good Kirkus review, a new author can use it as a highly effective promotional tool.


“Because of the importance given to a Kirkus review by librarians, literary agents, booksellers, film producers and avid readers, the new Kirkus Guaranteed Review offered by Outskirts Press can be a powerful feather in the marketing cap of our authors,” said Outskirts Press Director of Author Support Kelly Schuknecht.  “It’s an excellent way for authors to quickly get people ‘buzzing’ about their books.”

With the Outskirts Press Kirkus Guaranteed Review, authors will have two copies of their book submitted to Kirkus for a standard service review.   Kirkus qualified reviewers include librarians, business executives, journalists from national publications, PhD’s in religion and literature, and creative executives in the entertainment and publishing industries.  A full review of two to three hundred words will be ready within ten to twelve weeks and authors can use the review as they see fit: on the back cover of their books, on their own sites, in letters to agents, publishers, librarians or book store owners, or in any of their other marketing collateral.

Kirkus reviews can be cantankerous or complimentary, but they are always known for their honesty.  Consequently, even one praiseworthy phrase from a Kirkus reviewer becomes potent advertising copy for a new author’s book.

For a limited time, Outskirts Press published authors can get 25% off the Kirkus Guaranteed Review option with the promotion code KIRKUS25.


Outskirts Press offers high-quality, full-service self-publishing and book marketing services for writers and professionals who are seeking a cost-effective, fast, and flexible way to publish and distribute their books worldwide while retaining 100% of their rights, 100% of their profits, and 100% of the creative control. www.outskirtspress.com.
