Save a Tree—and Save 10% on the Elite E-book Bundle

With the celebration of Earth Day on April 22, it seems an appropriate time to reach out to more of the planet—and help keep Mother Nature looking lush in the process! Publish your book as an e-book in April and get 10% OFF the Elite E-book Bundle from Outskirts Press.

While hardcover and paperback books still reign supreme, environmentally conscious bookworms are spending approximately $3 billion a year on downloadable digital versions. In fact, it’s projected that in 2018 e-books will account for 25% of book sales—that’s a lot of selling opportunity!

With the Elite E-book Bundle your book could quickly be available to millions of e-book consumers, no matter what device they use or where they live. The package includes formatting and distribution of your book in all of the most popular digital formats:

  • Amazon Kindle E-book Edition with distribution on Amazon
  • Apple iPad/iPhone E-book Edition with distribution through iTunes and the iBooks bookstore
  • Barnes & Noble NOOK E-book Edition with distribution through the NOOK bookstore on Barnes & Noble’s website

Once your e-book is released, readers can purchase and download your book instantly … from anywhere in the world. Want to expand your reach globally and save 10% on e-book publishing? It’s so simple:

Your Book Can Make a Great First Impression with a FREE Custom Cover!

There’s a saying: “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” But we do! It’s a fact. And more than this, we judge quickly. First impressions matter in the world of book publishing, and self-published authors sometimes find themselves at a disadvantage. A custom cover, however, can establish your book as a standout on every bookshelf—and reap all the benefits of making a good first impression. Your book will:

  • look professional, lending you credibility as an author;
  • be visible, hooking potential readers’ attention as they browse through their options;
  • reach your ideal readers, and be encoded with all of the subtle visual hints specific to their favorite genres; and
  • be informative and comprehensive, providing all of the necessary components to make your book marketable, including details like ISBN numbers and details to convey your book’s story, characters, themes, motivations and underlying messages.

But how do you acquire a custom cover for your book, especially if you have a limited budget? We at Outskirts Press have the best of all possible solutions! For a limited time during the month of March, we will be offering a FREE Custom Cover Design (valued at $399) with the purchase one of our Ultimate or Full-Color publishing packages. All you need to do to participate is select one of the eligible publishing solutions, above, and enter the promotional code FreeCover at checkout. It really is that simple! But hurry because this offer will only be available for a limited time during the month of March.

Our dedication to putting together high-quality publishing solutions and services for authors doesn’t end with even such a stellar offer as this. Our staff and customer support, as well as the comprehensive and affordable nature of our packages, placed us among the top tier of self-publishing companies last year, a trend we intend to continue.

Book Synopsis of  “The Lost Branch”:
The story of my Sicily connection is fun to tell. I hope you enjoy learning a little bit about Sicily, and how our family in America reconnected with our relatives across the sea. There were two brothers that were separated at a young age because of the strict rules of immigration back in the early 1900’s. A hundred years later, a reunion of two families finally took place. There were sad times, happy adventures and special moments and memories that will last a lifetime.

Here is how the voting stacked up for our top 3 videos. Thank you to everyone that submitted a video to us this year.
