Your Book is Going on a Tour Around the Globe!

Houses of Parliament. Les Miserables. Big Ben.

First destination: London. The busy streets and pleasing personality of locals is enough to make you want this visit to never end. London’s also home to the book fair with the same name – the London Book Fair.

The London Book Fair is regarded by many as the most important spring publishing event and welcomes tens of thousands of attendees from all over the globe. Capitalize by exposing your book to key industry contacts like acquisitions agents, editors, and translation rights agents.

Hold on. We’re just getting started. You’re in for a year of fun!

The Statue of Liberty. Times Square. Broadway.

Welcome to the “city that never sleeps.” New York City! On the menu is all of the adventures above and an opportunity to take on BookExpo America (also known as BEA).

Every year BEA welcomes over 100,000 international attendees, authors, publishers, agents, and buyers. While the attendance is international, the focus is distinctly American, with American books, publishers, and authors receiving the main interest. Participation in this fair can get your book into the hands of an important contact that can further launch your career as an author. What can be better than taking in great sights and marketing your book?

That’s not all…

Emperor Hotel Bar. Shichahai Lakes. The Legation Quarter. 

That’s right. BEIJING! There are plenty of sights and sounds to drive your senses wild with excitement. And what else is in Beijing? One of the world’s largest book fairs – properly named the Beijing Book Fair.

No other country has experienced the increase that China has on the world marketplace, and the readership in China represents an enormous opportunity (and gap that needs to be filled) for translations and publishers seeking to feed the frenzy. It’s the perfect place for your book to get the exposure it deserves.

The journey doesn’t end there!

Stadel Museum. Palmgarten. German Film Museum.

Final destination: Frankfurt. Your trip ends with a stop in the location of the Frankfurt Book Fair.

Foreign rights sales and distribution beyond the shores of America take center stage in here, and each year, over 250,000 publishing professional and industry insiders converge on this event. Authors can plan to reach over 50% more international publishers than at BEA or other fairs.

Wow! What a ride!

Wouldn’t it be the opportunity of a lifetime to exhibit your book at all of the above fairs: London, BEA, Beijing, and Frankfurt? Even if you can’t travel to these locations personally, we can help you with achieving that dream (and possibly getting book sales and foreign rights negotiations out of the deal).

Our Global Book Tour is the perfect fit for the busy author who still desires representation at these fairs around the globe. Click here to learn more or reserve your space at the four book fairs today!

Take Your Book on a Global Tour!

How can you save 25% on one of the most powerful book marketing tactics there is? Keep reading to find out. It involves the power of networking combined with the convenience of full-service. And unlike book awards, it doesn’t matter when your book was published. The Global Book Tour is just as effective for book published five years ago as it is for book published five days ago!

Networking is a powerful marketing tool. As a matter of fact, it’s one of the most powerful tools for an author building his or her author platform. An author who is skilled at communicating their ideas to others can very well write their own ticket. The challenge is that far too many authors don’t know how to “network” their way to more sales.

The Outskirts Press Global Book Tour is a good way to effortlessly network with others around the world from the comfort of your own living room. You may not have the cash to go on a world tour, but you can probably send your book on one! With knowledgeable reps at every major book event who can sell a potential buyer on your book, you will experience easy, “hands off” book marketing at its finest.

The Global Book Tour includes stops at the London Book Fair, BookExpo America (BEA), Beijing International Book Fair, and the Frankfurt Book Fair. The exposure you will potentially receive is amazing, and with the full tour, you save 25% off the cost of placing your book at these fair individually.

During each of these events, your book will receive valuable, face-out exposure on an exclusive shelf with 4-7 other Outskirts Press titles (depending on the various sizes of the books) and a representative will be on-hand to personally answer questions about your book. Outskirts Press will provide the necessary copies of the book and all the necessary contact information for both the author and publisher, so interested parties can make further contact, during or after the fair. All inquiries Outskirts Press receives about your book will be forwarded directly to you for personal follow-up.

It just doesn’t get any easier or more convenient, and if you order now you will get a head start on 2013 by starting your tour with the very next book event on the calendar — Frankfurt!
Click here to watch the video, flip through the Global Book Tour guide book, and/or reserve your spot in all four international book fairs. Don’t wait. Space is available on a limited first come, first served basis.

Frankfurt International Book Fair for Self-Publishing Authors


Simply put, the Frankfurt International Book Fair is the largest and most important book fair in the world. While some might top Frankfurt’s 250 thousand in attendance, the multi-hall, mile long fair ground in Frankfurt hosts the largest contingent of publishing professionals of any book fair anywhere. 

The Frankfurt Book Fair is a meeting place for the industry’s experts – publishers, booksellers, agents, film producers and authors.  With more than 7,300 exhibitors from 100 countries, over 250,000 visitors and over 10,000 journalists, it is the most important marketplace for books, media, rights and licenses worldwide.  

As always, the Frankfurt International Book Fair will be held in mid-October at the Frankfurt Fair in Frankfurt, Germany.

Self-Publishing Authors Participating in the 2009 Frankfurt Book Fair

The Frankfurt Book Fair (Buchmesse) remains the publishing world’s most important annual book marketing event. Beyond the high-visibility sales and publicity campaigns, much more is going on behind the scenes. A quorum of the world’s international rights agents descend upon Frankfurt in search of fresh and exciting titles. And while larger contracts involving celebrity authors and major publishing houses are negotiated, signed, and announced during the show, the Buchmesse continues to offer an excellent forum for the discovery and contracting of titles from independent publishers. Since Frankfurt is a vital component of the publishing world’s economic engine, simply being part of the scene, on any scale, is sound business. Recognition at Frankfurt is a lesser-known title or author’s first important step onto the global stage.

The following books published by Outskirts Press participated in the Frankfurt Book Fair this year:

Book Fair space is available in limited quantities on a first-come, first served basis.  Outskirts Press authors can save 25% on 4 major book events throughout the year (London, BEA, Beijing, Frankfurt) with the Global Book Tour package.  Or, to register for the 2010 Frankfurt Book Fair a la carte, visit the Marketing Options screen of your author’s center today.
