Testimonial About Outskirt Press

Several years ago, when I decided to write my first book, I searched diligently for a company that offered the quality options and support that I felt I required.  Coming from a background in advertising and public relations as well as being the owner of an antique business, I knew from personal experience and from the trade that a lot of the outfits calling themselves “experts” to self-published authors were anything but.  The horror stories were abundant! 

I decided on Outskirts Press partly as a leap of faith and partly from their excellent track record.  I’m delighted to say that my decision to trust Outskirts with “my baby” has paid off many times over.  I am currently writing my fifth novel and will once again put my manuscript into their hands.  The customer service is excellent and I have never doubted the skills of the editors, proofreaders, cover artists and author representatives that I have been assigned to work with.

I have won two CIPA EVVY Awards which would not have been possible without Outskirt Press.

Am I happy with Outskirts Press?  You’d better believe it!

A quick word from a self-published author

“As a new author, I had impossible chances of publishing a book with my original message, while owning the rights of the book, and seeing it listed with Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Borders… until now.

Thank you so much, Outskirts Press, for making my impossible dream come true. You have streamlined and professionalized the publishing process, making it accessible and affordable. This kind of system simply did not exist before. You have opened doors that were previously sealed shut to a new author, like me. You have preserved the freedom of speech, and allowed people to be able to read the authentic ideas of authors, without the restrictive manipulations of large publishers, which change and control words and ideas to fit their stereotypes.

Bravo, Outskirts Press, you’re the best!”

– Amy Gibson, author of The Book of Encouragement
