In the throes of seasonal baking, pumpkin spice lattes and long, leisurely drives to take in the fall foliage, it’s easy to forget that big things lie just around the bend. In no time at all, you’ll be readying yourself for the sweet and savory feasts of Halloween and Thanksgiving, followed by the closeness and revelry of Christmas and New Year’s Day — all of which are prime marketing opportunities for self-publishing authors like you! So, if fall “leaves” you empty-handed in terms of author copies, you know it’s time to “rake” in the supplies you need for a successful season of giving — and selling!
It’s a good idea to have extra copies of your book on hand for those upcoming holidays, as well as for the readings, giveaways, book fairs and holiday book tours. Stocking up for holiday book-selling just when you’re starting to purchase gifts might feel overwhelming, but we at Outskirts Press want to lift some of the burden so that you make the most of your big opportunities to sell.
To help you prepare, we’re offering our published authors FREE SHIPPING on orders of 50 or more copies of their books within the continental U.S. during the month of October — just in time for that first big holiday sales push! By combining this free shipping offer with our high-volume discounts, you’ll be ready when selling opportunities come your way, without unduly depleting your bank account.
Here’s how to get free shipping:
- Log in to your Publishing Center, select “order books” and place an order for 50 or more copies of your book(s) in a single format before October 31
- Select normal ground shipping with a delivery address within the continental United States and proceed with checkout. (No promotion code is necessary. You will see the free shipping offer reflected in your total once you place your order)
- Kick back and finish that latte …
