Did You NaNoWriMo? Yes or No, You Can CoREDoPa! Learn What It Is and How to Get It

There’s nothing like signing up for a challenge to force ourselves out of our comfort zones. Whether it’s a half marathon, fire-walking or a writing competition, big challenges push us to achieve something seemingly impossible.

This is what thousands of determined writers do every November when they tackle the fun and ambitious National Novel Writing Month, also known as NaNoWriMo. The annual writing marathon calls on writers to jot at least 50,000 words — about the length of the average novel — in a scant 31 days. It’s no small feat but what a sense of accomplishment it brings!

If you conquered the NaNoWriMo challenge in November — or if you completed a book by any other method — treat yourself in December to CoREDoPa: That’s FREE Copyright Registration and Editing Down Payment with the purchase of the Ultimate or Full-Color publishing package! We can’t think of a better way to quickly polish and publish the manuscript you labored over.

With this special offer, you’ll receive free Copyright Registration valued at $249, plus we’ll waive your $240 Editing Down Payment. That’s $489 worth of free services — and the peace of mind that your hard-won manuscript is on its way to publication.

To get published with hundreds of dollars’ worth of free services — namely, free Copyright Registration and complimentary Editing Down Payment — simply place the Ultimate or Full-Color publishing package in your shopping cart and enter promo code FreeCopyEdit at checkout. But hurry! This offer ends soon.

Capture Readers with a Free Custom Cover!

You’ve heard this many times here: They say you can’t judge a book by its cover … but book shoppers always do. Always.

Like it or not, readers have little to go on, other than first impressions, as they pare down thousands of book choices to the few they wish to explore further. That means your cover may well be the single most powerful marketing and selling tool in your arsenal.

An eye-catching professional cover design has a huge job to do. It must entice the specific readers you’re after, instantly. It must make them want to take a closer look at what’s inside. Once you’ve attracted the right audience, your cover must also impart vital information about your book at a glance: genre and content, tone or mood, and even the quality of the writing itself. If your book cover does all that, your audience is more likely to buy.

So, how do you create a book cover that meets those lofty goals? Publish with Outskirts Press now and it’s our gift to you! We’ll give you a FREE Custom Cover Design (valued at $399) for your book when you purchase the Ultimate or Full-Color publishing package during this limited-time offer!

To enhance your book with a sales-boosting, professional custom cover, just place the publishing package of your choice in your shopping cart and enter the promo code October_FreeCover at checkout. It’s the best marketing decision you could make!
