Today, we open those gifts we’ve been eyeing under the tree for weeks, and we watch our loved ones open the gifts we have been putting together for equally as long, if not longer. But the gift-giving season doesn’t end today, or even when the ball drops in Times Square to mark the beginning of a new year. It’s true, there’s something special about Christmas and the other holidays clustered around the 25th of December, but there’s also something special about you and what you do, and you get to carry that with you forever. Your generosity of spirit has helped make Outskirts Press an industry leader, a standout success among the ranks of other possibilities you might have chosen but didn’t, and we want to honor you and that choice.
Today is special because you’re in it, and because you’re in our lives. Yes, we want to wish you a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukkah, a Joyous Kwanzaa, and Reason’s Greetings to those who mark Newtonmas. We truly hope and wish that the holiday season will be rich with happiness and healing after a long year in the trenches. The fact that you have entrusted us with your books, your stories, and your friendship is a constant blessing and a constant challenge to raise the bar, improve our services, and do our very best to transform your vision into reality. Let’s put it this way: We wouldn’t have won a #1 ranking from Top Consumer Reviews without you!
You, our authors, are at the heart of what we do and who we are at Outskirts Press. You are, like the books you write, authors and avatars of a beautiful, colorful, diverse, and exciting future which we can’t wait to inhabit. And we hope that, as we progress through the last days of 2016, that you continue to choose us as your partners in the self-publishing process.
2016 has, in point of fact, been a stellar year for our authors! Whether we’re talking about Amazon bestsellers like Mirtha Michelle Castro Mármol’s Letters, To The Men I Have Loved and Elusive Loves; Amores Esquivos or books successfully adapted for film and television like Landria Onkka’s The Rooftop Christmas Tree, whimsical illustrated children’s picture books like Super Mia and the Good Luck Duo – Rescued is the New Black by Marie-Yolaine Williams or works of serious nonfiction like Donald Deignan’s The Shadow of Sacrifice: The True Story of a Pearl Harbor Survivor and his Nephew and Namesake, our authors never cease to amaze us and make us proud to be your publishing company. And that’s just to name a few! Our bookstore is packed with incredible options for the discerning reader.
This Christmas, we hope you’ll take a moment or two to celebrate yourself, your hard work, and the labor of so many other fellow authors who have come together to be published through Outskirts Press. So shake out that tinsel and rip open those presents–and take a moment to join us in pondering all the good things that the Outskirts Press community has accomplished in 2016. We’re proud of you.
