These are the marketing products and tactics determined to be most popular by our authors for the month of May 2013, listed below in alphabetical order:
|Amazon Extreme Package: Save 25% on 3 of our marketing services focused on Amazon.com. This package includes a Kindle Edition of your book, participation in the Amazon Search Inside the Book and Amazon Cover Enhancement.|
|Amazon Kindle Submission Service: Make your book available on Amazon’s Kindle ebook reading device. More formats on Amazon means more exposure on Amazon, and the Kindle is heavily promoted by Amazon.|

|Barnes & Noble NOOK Submission Service: Millions of books are available on Barnes & Noble’s NOOK. If your book isn’t one of them, you are missing out on tapping a very important, and growing, market of readers.|
|Barnes & Noble See Inside: Barnes & Noble’s answer to Amazon’s “Search Inside the Book” program. Books that participate in this program receive a “See Inside” icon next to their Barnes & Noble cover image, which invites potential customers to electronically “flip” through a small section of the book.|
|Book Review Submission Service: Securing positive book reviews is the first step toward building word-of-mouth buzz for your book. In addition to receiving a complimentary copy of your book, the reviewers will also receive a professional cover letter, a coy of your press, and your sales sheet. We take care of all of that for you, including sending the review copy!|

Yes, like many of our a la carte marketing services, you don’t have to have published with Outskirts Press in order to benefit from them (although you often save a little bit if you have). But in either case, the marketing bundles, like the E-book package, are all great values. Here’s the link: http://outskirtspress.com/p/ebookpackage
