A Leap of Faith or a Surety? Self-Publishing Supports Writers of Faith

April is a month packed full of faith-centered celebrations––with Passover on the 11th, Easter on the 16th, and Lailat al Miraj on the 23rd––and the deep, poignant reflections which so often and naturally accompany them. Traditionally, April is a month of profound religious insight with an emphasis on peace, generosity, and pilgrimages both physical and spiritual.

What better way to honor the tenor of the month than to publish a book borne out of your faith? Practically speaking, there’s no better time of year to do so, and at Outskirts Press we offer a variety of a la carte services in addition to our stellar One-Click Publishing packages for Spiritual and Christian literature, packages tailored to meet your needs as an author of faith seeking to reach readers of similar interests. Whether you’re putting together a work of fiction, non-fiction, or something which defies the conventions of genre, we have something made to order.

Readers are hungry for religious and faith-based literature! Several years ago, Publishers Weekly released some research on the world of Christian books, highlighting the massive success which this particular category of books has had as a result of self-publishing. Says PW’s Andy Butcher, “Christian self-publishing has moved from the Rodney Dangerfield era to the Aretha Franklin age. Once they couldn’t get no respect, but now self-publishers in the category are singing Aretha’s chorus and asserting themselves as an important and viable option for faith-based authors.” And the numbers only continue to climb!

So what’s driving those sales? An ever-broadening range of self-publishing services populated with smart marketing strategies and expert insight from professionals is one driving factor; so too is self-publishing’s movement beyond stigma to respectability, a respectability it has earned in part because the covers get better and more beautiful each year, the content more refined and polished, and the variety of religious books available more diverse. The better the self-publishing services provided, the more authors are able to translate their dreams for publishing into reality.

And we at Outskirts Press are so proud to offer exactly that––quality self-publishing options designed to place your vision for your book at the heart of what we do, to produce the best possible book of which you can be proud––and with which you can inspire your readers with the faith and insight you have found in life. We hope you’ll consider publishing with us, and if you have any questions you can find out more on our website (www.OutskirtsPress.com) or contact us by phone (1-888-672-6657)—or even live chat with us online! Our Publishing Consultants are on hand and eager to set you up for success as you take a leap of faith into self-publishing!

Announcing One-Click Publishing for Christian Books!

picture1

You’ve probably heard the traditional rhyme before:

Something old,

something new,

something borrowed,

something blue,

and a silver sixpence in her shoe.

… and you’ve probably also heard about our One-Click Publishing packages if you’ve spent much time on our website at www.OutskirtsPress.com or reading our newsletters, blog posts, and emails. For those of you who are brand-new to Outskirts Press, however, these packages incorporate a range of services which make up, in many ways, some of our finest offerings and keep us a top-ranked self-publishing company by authors and third-party evaluators alike.

But what if you were looking to publish a Christian book? Is there a One-Click Publishing package for you? We are happy to announce that, due to popular demand, we have put together a new offering to meet that exact need—our One-Click Publishing package for Christian Books! This package will “borrow” the same level of quality service and range of stellar products our other One-Click packages are known for—Expedited Service, Professional Custom Cover Design, five hours of consultation with one of our Personal Marketing Assistants, and much more.  Better still, our One-Click Publishing package for Christian Books has been retooled to provide services tailored to the specific needs of Christian books, such as, Spring Arbor Distribution.

A true One-Click Publishing package is distinguished from all other options by its ease of use, and by the fact that the synergistic connection between packaged services means we can offer our award-winning services at steep discounts when sold as a single unit. Yes, there’s an upfront cost, but One-Clicks offer a far greater return on your investment than tucking a sixpence in your shoe.

Publishing packages like our One-Click Publishing for Christian Books provide a truly crucial service in helping preserve two of your most important resources: time and energy. If you, an author of a Christian work, find yourself pressed for time or struggling to put together the final printed product you desire, it might be a good time to look into our One-Click Publishing package for Christian Books.

If you’re an author of non-fiction, fiction, children’s, or otherwise spiritual literature, take a moment to look into all of our other available One-Click Publishing packages! We hope you’ll consider publishing with us at Outskirts Press, and if you have any questions you can find out more on our website (www.OutskirtsPress.com) or by contacting us by phone (1-888-672-6657) or live chat online.

The New York Times Holiday Edition features self-publishing author Nikki DuBose.

About the Author

Nikki DuBose is a former model, host, and commercial actress who has appeared on the covers of and in editorials for magazines such as Maxim, Glamour, Vogue and Vanity Fair. She is now a writer and public speaker. She is an advocate for mental health and uses her experiences to connect with others.

Washed Away: From Darkness to Light

Nikki DuBose recently turned her career focus towards writing, public speaking, and mental health advocacy and draws firsthand experience from a long-standing battle with childhood abuse, sexual victimization, self-harm, addictions, eating disorders and various mental health issues. Her articles appear regularly online for The Huffington Post, the National Eating Disorders Association, Eating Disorder Hope, Recovery Warriors and Clinical Addiction Recovery Institute (C.A.R.I.).

Her recovery story and advocacy work have been profiled on CBS Los Angeles, People, The Inquisitr, L.A. Weekly and Esquire, among many others. In addition to writing, speaking and advocacy, Nikki is pursuing her degree in psychology, with the goal of one day obtaining her Ph.D.

With the help of James Johanson, who is a strategy consultant and the author of The Road to Wellness: Mastering Mind, Body and Environment, Nikki brings her story to the world with her personal memoir in Washed Away: From Darkness to Light.

Washed Away: From Darkness to Light is an incredible story of one brave woman’s perseverance in the face of daunting life circumstances. Nikki DuBose details her chilling experiences with an eating disorder, childhood sexual abuse, alcoholism and drug abuse – and how she found the strength to rise above and find recovery. This powerful read will inspire those in their own recovery journeys.” —Kristina Saffran, Co-Founder and Co-Executive Director at Project HEAL

“I was truly amazed by her determination to live life. I saw a woman that had every reason to quit and remain silent, but she chose to break through every obstacle that challenged her. I am very grateful that she has taken on the challenge to not only speak about her experiences, but to fight for change in laws that will empower children and survivors to protect themselves. We all need to learn from Nikki and use our voices to create positive change. It is no longer okay for the silence to outweigh the tough discussion. Ignorance will not stop child sex predators from harming our children.” —Matthew Sandusky, Founder & Executive Director of Peaceful Hearts Foundation, Author (Undaunted: Breaking My Silence to Overcome the Trauma of Child Sexual Abuse), Speaker

cover-1The Old Guy Goes

On his 40th birthday, community college teacher Eldred Duker feels he’s getting older faster and faster. Childless, he and his wife Marie visit the orphanage he and his now-estranged sister Anne lived in as small children and, as Marie has long wanted to do, end up adopting six-year-old Hope. Hope is sexually assaulted at age 16. Herself molested by one of their mother’s male friends as a child, Anne comes for a visit to help. After Hope is on her own, Marie is killed in a car accident. Slowly at first, Duke starts losing his grip on reality. He seeks revenge on the man whose vehicle killed Marie, looks for relief of his pain by taking a yoga class, falls in love with the instructor Rachel, marries her, sees his daughter Hope married to Dirk and helps Rachel bury her mother. During these years, Duke’s judgment deteriorates. He causes a car accident that kills Rachel, starts drinking regularly and tracks down the man who killed Marie to forgive him and thus himself. Hope and Anne eventually realize that he is no longer capable of taking care of himself and place him a Continuing Care Retirement Community. There, when ER tests given after he breaks a leg reveal that he has a fast-acting fatal disease, they move him back to his old home. Having separated from Dirk, Hope moves in to take care of him and arranges for hospice care. Along with her now-adult children, she and Anne attend his death.
