Every published author knows the satisfaction of seeing their hard work transformed into a beautiful new book to hold and share with friends and family. Authors who self-publish through Outskirts Press especially know the joy of holding their professionally designed books in hand. But there’s a huge group of loyal “e-readers” looking for electronic editions-potential fans who won’t have access to your book if it’s only in print form!
Along with the paperback or hardcover edition that is included with the various Outskirts Press publishing packages, authors have the option of releasing an e-book edition of their books-whether it’s for Kindle, Nook, Google and/or iPad.
If your goal is to reach as many readers as possible, consider taking advantage of this easy, affordable option and release your book in multiple formats!
Printed books will always be coveted by diehard booklovers. We love libraries and bookstores and eye-catching covers, and we love filling our shelves at home with our favorite titles. Most books still do best in physical form, but there is a growing number of bibliophiles who love their electronic reading devices…and tend to shop for digital editions of books as well as hard copies. Is YOUR book reaching this important demographic?
Digital editions also make an easy an inexpensive way to provide reviewers with a free copy of your book or to hold a contest where the winner receives your digital edition.
Independent authors should take advantage of this digital technology and deliver their books into the hands of an enormous group of consumers. And Outskirts Press authors have the advantage of a team of publishing professionals to make it happen. After all, more formats of your book mean more exposure, and more exposure translates to more success for you!

When Private Wotjek joined the Allied fight during World War II, his comrades could not imagine the impact his presence would have in the war. However, soon after his arrival, they realized what a valuable asset Wotjek would prove to be. There was only one small problem: Wotjek was a bear. “Once A Hero” is a historical novel of a Syrian brown bear cub that was orphaned and later, through serendipity, landed in the hands of Polish soldiers escaping the Soviet gulags. The tale is not only endearing, but also based on true events. The bear in the story is today honored and celebrated in several countries for his heroic actions during World War II. The story profiles the bear from birth to adulthood. The journey of a band of Polish soldiers is interwoven in the plot as they travel from their homes in war torn Europe, escape from the Siberian gulags, and travel through the Middle East into Africa. Eventually the paths of the bear and the soldiers cross, and the ten-pound cub is adopted as the troops’ mascot. “Once A Hero” is rich in historically and culturally accurate detail. The characters are well-developed and endearing. Vignettes of colorful escapades are written in a delightfully humorous tone keeping the reader entertained though out.
