Incredible as it may seem, it is absolutely possible to still have your new literary work published, printed and in-hand in time for gift-giving!

While publishing with traditional publishing houses can drag on for months, even years, before the book rolls off the press, authors who publish through Outskirts Press can see the finished product in a mere matter of weeks. That means a manuscript you submit to us in October could be nestled into a loved one’s stocking by Christmas.
