Prepare for a Summer of Book Sales with FREE Shipping In May!

There are many reasons to be excited about summer this year. With COVID-19 vaccinations on the rise and hospitalizations on the decline, businesses are reopening and we are starting to gather again with family and friends.

Many authors are making plans to start marketing their book(s) again with in-person events such as book fairs, book signings, and tours. It is important to make sure you are ready when these marketing opportunities arise by having plenty of copies of your book on hand. Not only are author copies a great marketing tool but people love the convenience of buying directly from you instead of having to go to a store or order online. For more ideas on how to effectively use author copies to market your book, check out the free flipbook in your Book Marketing COACH Dashboard titled Ten Local Ways to Use Your Author Copies.

To help you prepare for the summer book marketing season, we are currently offering FREE SHIPPING within the continental United States on orders of 50 or more copies of your book. And when you combine free shipping with high-volume bulk discounts to receive up to an additional 50% off your printing costs, you can save even more!

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to save! Order your author copies before the FREE SHIPPING offer expires on May 31st! No promotion code is necessary.

Get 3 Top Upgrades when you start Publishing

Promo Code: coverkdedi

What are the two most important elements to a high-quality, successful self-published book? Many readers would say professional copyediting and a professional custom cover. Both services help in securing stronger book sales and better book reviews. These are integral to every self-published author trying to get their book “out there.”

Your book cover’s importance cannot be stated enough. A custom cover allows a designer to create a completely unique cover that captures the essence of your book. Undoubtedly, this makes your book more appealing to readers (which equals more book sales). Your designer will create two covers for you, so you can choose and modify the one you like best.

Copyediting is a necessity, as any book with obvious spelling errors will be overlooked and your book sales may suffer as a result. With a full copyedit, your professional editor will conduct a thorough basic edit over your entire manuscript’s punctuation, spelling, and grammar.

When you start publishing today with the promotion code, we will edit the first 15,000 words of your manuscript for free to help you determine if a full edit of your manuscript is a worthwhile investment.  And since people DO judge books by their covers, you will also receive a free professional custom cover design (a $499 value).  By starting right now, we will also publish and distribute an Amazon Kindle eBook Edition of your book for free (a $299 value). That’s over $1000 of additional value to make your book the best it can be! Just enter promo code coverkdedi in your shopping cart during checkout.

Free Shipping (and a Social-Distancing Book Marketing Guide) for Outskirts Press Authors

Book marketing may have changed, but it doesn’t have to stop.

They seek human connections, and they live to bring peace, joy, education, and entertainment to one another. Books have been doing exactly that for centuries.

Boost Your Sales With 10% Off Our Promotional Materials Bundle!

Have you ever promoted your book at a local fair? What about at the library? At the movie theatre or a local restaurant? This is a season of promotions, book fairs, and festivals–making it the perfect time of year around which to build your marketing plan! And the perfect event requires, even demands, the perfect complementary takeaway for attendees to remember you and your book by.

I’m talking about promotional materials! This month, we’re offering our Promotional Materials Bundle for 10% off the already bundled price. You get great savings on the design and printing of five different types of materials, all of which adds up to a fantastically useful and affordable range of over 1,525 custom promotional items featuring your book’s beautiful cover! More specifically, this package provides:

  • 500 bookmarks
  • 500 business cards
  • 500 postcards
  • 25 small posters

This bundle normally sells for $599 but order today and you can receive all 1,525 items for just $539.10. To take advantage of this limited-time offer, simply enter promo code Save10PromoPack at checkout!

But … what do you do with these items? Where does an author get started? We’ve put together a list of our top five tips for getting the most out of your promotional events and materials!

  • Use the 500 bookmarks included in this package to stock the counters of local businesses, libraries, and bookstores; anywhere that people read, or have to take a pause while reading, is perfect
  • Hand out the 500 business cards at public readings, book signings, and other events where you’ll meet potential future readers
  • Mail the 500 postcards to distant friends or to those likely to purchase copies of your book, or recruit friends and family to use them in place of regular correspondence! Two birds with one stone, right?
  • Use the 25 small posters to paper the town! Inquire at local businesses, including grocers, movie theaters, and restaurants, if they wouldn’t mind you putting up a poster on their public bulletin boards or paste it in their shop front windows!
  • Whatever else you do, make sure it’s portable! You literally want your promotional materials to walk out the door, so make it easy! Stock materials that will really move, tucked away neatly in a wallet or pocket or book, and stock them in places or at events where people won’t hesitate to grab one and take it home!
