With any extensive amount of exposure, progressive self-publishing authors are well-advised to start laying the ground work early, either through the distribution of a new press release, or by contacting bookstores where the media exposure will take place. In this case, New York City bookstores would be a good target for direct sales efforts. For instance, NY City’s largest independent bookstore chain is Strand Books and their website is at

Book Review Submission for Self-Published Authors

Book Review Submission Service

We have identified 10 book reviewers who, in our experience, have all demonstrated a tendency in the past to review alternatively published and self-published books.

With the Book Review Submission Service, we will administer the submission of your book to these ten book reviewers for you as an optional service. Included in the submission to these reviewers is everything the reviewers typically require to consider writing a review, like:

* a professional cover letter
* a professional press release
* your sales sheet
* a complimentary copy of your book for the reviewer to consider and keep

As always, remember that no one (including the author nor Outskirts Press) has any control over whether a book reviewer agrees to write a review, decides to share a review that is written, or what the review will say (positive or negative). Participation in the Book Review Submission Service in no way implies that a review will be written or that a review will be positive. On the other hand, positive reviews on popular websites and blogs or within popular journals can improve
sales and lead to positive word-of-mouth, which is a precursor to the viral publicity and “buzz” that all authors dream of.

Keep in mind you can save 25% on our most popular marketing options by ordering them all at the same time with the Book Blast Package. This package includes a Custom Press Release, PR Publicist Campaign, Book Review Submission Service, Book Video and Personal Marketing Assistant. These powerful marketing services will help you BLAST your book into the stratosphere!
