One Self-Publishing Author Will Win a New Laptop Computer in the annual Outskirts Press “Show Us Your Love” Contest

We are excited to hear from our authors at all times, of course, but we are extra-excited to invite you to join us in sharing those experiences during our Annual “Show Us Your Love” social media event and image/video contest. All you have to do to be eligible for a win is count the ways you love Outskirts Press and your published book!

The annual event, appropriately enough, takes place around Valentine’s Day, and we’re spreading the self-publishing love to you with a fabulous grand prize: a brand-new laptop computer. Please note, previous Show Us Your Love contest winners are not eligible to enter the contest within three years with the same book. The deadline to enter “Show Us Your Love” is Friday, February 15th.

Showing your love is easy. Here’s how the contest works:

  • Record a brief video between 1 and 3 minutes long that demonstrates your deep and abiding love for your book, your publishing experience and Outskirts Press. The more creative, the better.
  • Or alternatively, take a fantastic photo commemorating your love for your Outskirts Press publication. Creativity counts!
  • Email your video file in an .mp4 or .mov format or your image in a .jpg or .png format to love@outskirtspress.com. The contest is open through February 15th.
  • Outskirts Press will share your video or image(s) on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and, if applicable, Instagram, increasing exposure for you and your book. (Please Note: By submitting a video or photograph(s) for this contest, authors grant Outskirts Press permission to post said videos or photograph(s) to its social media platforms for promotional purposes.)
  • The three finalists who receive the most “likes” on Facebook for their entries will be selected for a public vote on the Outskirts Press blog from February 18th — February 23rd to determine the winner. Be sure you follow us on Facebook, Twitter and elsewhere so you can “like” your favorite videos or images and visit our blog to vote!
  • The winner of the laptop computer will be announced via the blog on February 28.

Submit your video or photo(s) as early as you can! The sooner your submission goes live, the more exposure you’ll receive and the more “likes” you can collect. Share the link to your submission once we post it to our Facebook page with all of your friends, family members, fans, and social media followers! (And of course, don’t forget to “like” your own submission on our social media accounts.) Contests such as this one serve as valuable—and free! —promotion for your book, so we hope you have a chance to sit down and whip up a great video or photograph(s) in the days to come!

And that’s all the information you need to get started. We’ll be standing by to receive and share your submissions, as well as to answer any questions you might have. Swing on by our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/OutskirtsPress or our YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/OutskirtsPress to get a glimpse of some spectacular self-publishing love!

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.
