Here’s how to get that free shipping:

  1. Log in to your author account at www.OutskirtsPress.com, select “order books” and place an order for 50 or more copies of your book(s) in a single format before May 31.
  2. Select normal ground shipping with a delivery address within the continental United States and proceed with checkout.
  3. That’s it!

No promotion code is necessary. You will see the free shipping offer reflected in your total once you place your order.

If you’re not sure how to approach marketing your self-published book and haven’t yet taken advantage of Outskirts Press’ many promotional services, consider contacting a Personal Marketing Assistant to come up with a solid action plan for this summer!

How Published Outskirts Press Authors Can Save $16,000 (or More) During Free Shipping Month

Outskirts Press authors are able to take advantage of the most popular promotion of the entire year for the remainder of September – FREE SHIPPING!

Here’s how it works: you order 50+ copies (of the same format) of your book and pay nothing for UPS Ground shipping within the Continental U.S. That offers the oportunity to save a substantial amount of money when placing a book order. The more copies of your book you order, the more you save on shipping costs.

When you pair the shipping savings with the money you’ll save by placing a bulk order, you have an opportunity to potentially save hundreds (or thousands) of dollars!

Let’s assume your book is a 429 page hardback book with dustjacket. Here’s how much you can save:

Author Price (for Author Copies): $16.01
Shipping cost: $0 (due to free shipping promotion)
Total cost for 200 copies: $3,202

If that author orders 1000 copies, their price per copy drops by 35% to $10.41. That’s a savings of $5.60 per copy! Or, $5,600 – a greater savings than the cost of the 200 copy order!

To save even more, the author can purchase 2000 copies. Then, their price goes down by 50% to $8.01. Thats a savings of $8 per copy! That puts $16,000 back into the author’s pocket!

What if you don’t have a hardback book or don’t want to order 2000 copies? You can still save during our free shipping promotion. Let’s take an author purchase of a 320 page 6×9 cream paperback for example:

Author Price (for Author Copies): $8.08
Shipping cost (without this month’s free shipping promotion): $113.97
Total Cost for 100 copies: $921.97

That’s $9.22 per copy! This month, that author can save $113.97 on their order. Like above, if the author orders in bulk, they can save even more. This particular author can save $5,660 or more with an order of 2000+ copies!

Want to know how much money you can put back into your pocket when you place a bulk order? Click here to find out!

P.S. – While you’re there, don’t forget to place your order now so that you don’t miss out on the free shipping opportunity!

AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT & SUCCESS STORY
“This was my first experience publishing a book, and I’ve learned a lot! Outskirts Press made the experience as painless a possible for me, and my author representative was great! The greatest lesson I learned was to edit, edit, edit BEFORE starting the process. That way, the publishing experience can be most efficient and there will be few, if any, surprises. Thanks, Outskirts Press!”Bill Taylor has been an ordained Primitive Baptist minister for twenty years, serving churches in Alabama and Tennessee as a pastor. This is his first published book, and it is the result of his having written and distributed daily meditations on various Bible subjects for many years. This is not a heavy theological commentary; instead, it is a practical approach to understanding God’s word and how it is still, “quick and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword.”
– Bill Taylor, author of Men Of Like Passion

Author Spotlight & Success Story
“My experience with Outskirts from start to finish is a 10! I should add here that I have worked with traditional publishers (“Tricks of the Trade: A Real Estate Brokers Inside Advice in Buying and Selling a Home,” Adams Media Corporation, Avon Ma) and I have had a wonderful experience with them as well. This time working with Outskirts was an excellent call. I liked both the flexibility and the ability to retain 100% of the rights to my book. Working with the entire production team was a joy. I would recommend them and already have.” – Brendan J. Cunningham, author of The Seventh SenseAre you ready to experience your own success story?

Save up to 50% on self published copies

One of the advantages of on-demand publishing has always been “low inventory.”  Outskirts Press recognizes this by always offering our authors their low, below-wholesale author price on quantities of just 5 at a time.  With Outskirts Press, there’s no need to buy massive quantities of your own book just to get a below wholesale cost.

But many of our authors are having such extraordinary success with direct sales that we want to support those wonderful marketing efforts by offering even greater savings for larger orders.  Now, you can save up to 50% off your already-discounted author copy base price when ordering your book in larger quantities through your Author’s Center.

Specifically, full color (Pearl) books and hardcopy books in single order quantities of 2000 or more will receive a 50% discount on the author copy price. 

Black/white paperback books ordered in quantities of 2000 or more will receive a 35% discount.

The discounts begin at 1000 copies for hardback books and full-color (Pearl package) books.

Let’s take a look at an example. A 24 page full-color children’s book that retails for $13.95 and has an author copy base price of $7.64 is already receiving a 46% discount.  By taking advantage of the additional 50% savings, the author’s price drops to 3.82, which is an amazing 73% off the retail price.

To take advantage of these discounts, order the appropriate quantity in your author’s center and read the additional information that pops-up on your screen. This information includes details about alternate production schedules and turnaround times for these drastically discounted books. The quality remains the same superior OP quality you are accustomed to.
