Five Steps to Publishing

Infographic on Five Easy Steps to Becoming a Self-Published Author

If you will indulge us for just a moment, we’d like to compare the self-publishing process to conflict resolution and the scientific method.

Wait, what? Each of these things has been distilled down to five simple steps, as we have done with the publishing process. Just as with conflict resolution, self-publishing is a negotiation of complex relationships. And just like the scientific method, self-publishing through Outskirts Press is a careful, thoughtful, and exploratory enterprise which produces reliable—and sometimes revelatory—results!

The comparison, perhaps, ends there. But when we talk about five steps to self-publishing success, we’re not being overly simplistic or reductive. Within those five steps, you are:

  1. Registering for a (free) Author’s Account
  2. Contacting a Publishing Consultant and receiving a Custom Publishing Profile
  3. Submitting your manuscript
  4. Reviewing your digital files and approving them for print
  5. Sending your book out into the world to meet its eager readers
