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!

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).

Second, starting the process now means you may be able to kick off the new year with a new book, or close to it. Depending on how much you have left to write, you might be able to pitch your newly minted tome to post-Christmas or Valentine’s Day shoppers. Boom — one resolution down, only a dozen or so to go!

And finally, you’ll save money. How? With $300 spending money from Outskirts Press! Purchase our Ultimate or Full-Color publishing package in August and we’ll throw in a credit of $300 you can use to purchase or pay down any Outskirts Press service you desire.

  1. Professional Copy Editing. An experienced copy editor will ensure a polished manuscript that is free of errors that could destroy credibility.
  2. Custom Cover Design. Book cover design can be as important as content in reeling in readers and increasing your odds of selling.
  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!

Here’s all you need to do to save:

  1. Add the Ultimate or Full-Color Publishing package to your shopping cart
