5 Self-Published Books for the Special Moms in Your Life

One of my favorite quotes about motherhood is “To the world you are a mother, but to your family, you are the world.” Moms are amazing. They work around the clock caring for their families, they sacrifice so much to provide for their children, and they do it all with little thanks or recognition. Mother’s Day is an opportunity to thank the amazing mothers in your life. Whether that special lady is a mom-to-be, new mom in the trenches of the newborn stage, or a seasoned professional, Outskirts Press offers books that make wonderful Mother’s Day gifts. Here are five of our favorites.

Gramma Darling by Lissa Schroeder  is an EVVY award nominee. Beautifully written and stunningly illustrated, this delightful book for children, parents, and grandparents paints a nostalgic picture of unhurried summer days at a dear grandmother’s house. Seen and felt through the eyes of a child, every discovery is full of innocence and wonder.
Milk & Ink  is a charity project created out of the belief that starting with small acts of generosity and the wealth of relationships we can make changes and help others. While the Milk & Ink anthology focuses on the experience of motherhood, the creators also hope that the stories speak to fathers, daughters, and sons.
Parenthood: A Life Sentence by Robert Nicoletti, PhD  describes what parenthood requires from the moment of conception all the way to the role of grandparent, and possibly great grandparent. Each chapter in the book dwells on a particular period in the lives of children and their parents.
The Back-up Mom: A Stepmother’s Journey by Laura K. Wanger  focuses on the unique gifts and challenges of stepparenting that are rarely discussed. The Back-Up Mom is an invaluable, candid guide to stepparenting from the personal experience of a mom who has been there.
The Poetry of Motherhood: Baby-Inspired Wisdom from Their First Year by Rachel Bruhnke  is for new and seasoned moms. Different than any “baby advice” book, The Poetry of Motherhood gives both insight and inspiration to moms in that incredibly emotional and wonderful first year of their baby’s life. Through baby-inspired haiku poetry and reflections, many of the comical, practical, and poignant lessons of first-year motherhood and babyhood are represented.

All of these books, along with other Outskirts Press titles, are available from the major online book retailers like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Powell’s, Books-A-Million and others, plus conveniently from the Outskirts Press bookstore.

The Path to Self-Publishing is Smoother Than Ever!

If you will indulge us just a moment, we’d like to compare the self-publishing process to conflict resolution and the scientific method. Wait, what? Each of these things has been distilled down to five simple steps, as we have done with the publishing process. Just as with conflict resolution, self-publishing is a negotiation of complex relationships–and just as with the scientific method, self-publishing through Outskirts Press is a careful, thoughtful, and exploratory enterprise which produces reliable–and sometimes revelatory—results!

The comparison, perhaps, ends there. But when we talk about five steps to self-publishing success, we’re not being overly simplistic or reductive. Within those five steps:

  1. Registering for a (free) Author’s Account
  2. Getting in touch with a Publishing Consultant and receiving a Custom Publishing Profile
  3. Submitting your manuscript
  4. Reviewing your digital files and approving them for print
  5. Sending your book out into the world to meet its eager readers

Well, within these five steps is contained the entire Outskirts Press publishing experience, including everything that will be done both by you and by our team of experts who will labor, behind the scenes, to ensure your masterful vision for your book is fully realized. It is no simple thing, producing a masterpiece–but we are committed to ensuring that you retain full creative control as well as full rights and royalties, without having to spend invaluable hours in labor or your hard-earned dollars in dimes on services which might not pan out. At Outskirts Press, we put your investment to work and commit ourselves every day to walking you through these five easy steps!

Outskirts Press is here to make your life—and your work—easier. We’re here to answer your questions, and we encourage you to visit the Outskirts Press website to chat with a representative www.OutskirtsPress.com or call us at 1-888-672-6657!
