How are you spending your summer vacation? If you play your cards right, you can tell everyone you spent it getting published! It’s actually a great time to take the leap.

First, publishing ahead of the holidays gives you breathing room. You’re well ahead of the hustle and bustle of company parties, family gatherings and holiday baking. That means you can devote your energy and attention to making your book the best it can be before it goes to print (and ebook).

  3. Ebook Publishing. An ebook edition opens selling potential to millions of readers.
  4. Book Video Trailer. Capture imaginations in the virtual realm with a vivid book trailer, complete with professional graphics and set to music!

Publish Now and Receive 20% Off Ultimate and Full-Color Publishing

It helps to have goals. For instance, did you have a goal to finish that book you’re working on this year? Rolling into a new year with a complete manuscript is the ideal benchmark to get yourself motivated for the home stretch. Outskirts Press is offering 20% off our Ultimate and Full-Color Publishing packages to save you money, too … but more on that in a bit.

If your manuscript is close to done and everything else runs smoothly, it’s possible to get through a portion of the production process (formatting, cover art, distribution, etc.) in the coming months as well.

But even if your manuscript isn’t quite there, remember there are 21 weeks left in the year to finish writing, editing and proofreading, meaning you could be ready to begin production as you ring in 2019. At the very least, shooting for this lofty goal will motivate you to finish something you may not have gotten done so quickly—or at all.

Best of all, you don’t even need a finished manuscript to take advantage of Outskirts Press publishing sales! In fact, by selecting your publishing package ahead of time, your team of experts will be ready to go the moment your writing is done. To help you cross the finish line in affordable fashion, for a limited time only, Outskirts Press will take 20% off our Ultimate Publishing package or Full-Color Publishing package!
