So why does Rachel keep coming back to Outskirts Press? We’ll let her tell you in her own words…

“Outskirts press made publishing as easy as 1-2-3.  Every step of the way there was a representative or consultant that expertly guided me through each stage of the publishing process.  The most fascinating part was watching the process.  It was like being in a cookie factory where one can see the first stage with the mixing of ingredients all the way to the final packaging of this perfectly made delicacy.  Exciting is imagining various scenes of my book and conveying that to the illustrator’s and magically there’s my most vivid imagination come to life through my book.  I purchased the Pearl package and to see my full-color illustration and hold it was the most wondrous thing.  To see this imagined character come to life in full-color and be more beautiful than expected is pretty amazing.  My experience with Outskirts was so amazing that I am working on my third Pearl book with them.”
