Win a FREE laptop when you Show Us Your Love this February

self publishing

Outskirts Press is bursting with LOVE for self-publishing authors this February. Would you love to share in the love?

Better yet, would you love to win a free laptop computer with Windows 8?

Here’s your chance to do both: Announcing our 2nd Annual “Show Us Your Love” social media event and video contest.

One talented author will be the lucky winner of this sparkling black HP Pavillion laptop computer!

Outskirts Press authors, grab your video cameras, smartphones, or iPads and expand your artistic creativity by recording a 1-3 minute video that creatively highlights your love for your book & your love for Outskirts Press.

Email your video file to by midnight on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2013. **Submission deadline has been extended until 11:59pm EST February 22nd.

It’s just that simple!

We will share your video on our Facebook Page, YouTube Channel, and Twitter Feed, increasing exposure for you and your book.  The sooner you submit your video, the more exposure you’ll receive.  Be sure to share your video on your own social media channels, too, and have all your friends and family visit our Facebook page at to “like” your video.

The three finalists receiving the most “likes” on our Facebook page from among all the posted entries will be selected for a public vote on this blog to determine the winner during the last week of February.

The winner of the free HP laptop computer with Windows 8 will be announced on Friday, March 1, 2013.

That’s it!  Happy recording, and good luck!

Here’s the video created by last year’s winner, Patricia A. Hawkenson, author of Magnetic Repulsion:100 Poems From Desire to Disgust:
