Congratulations and Good Luck to the 2021 Outskirts Press EVVY Award Nominees!

This year, Outskirts Press has an impressive 68 EVVY Award nominees to thank for their dedication and high-quality work as self-published authors. The EVVYs are an acclaimed annual book award program sponsored by the Colorado Independent Publishers’ Association (CIPA), which recognizes superior independently published books. The EVVYs are judged by a panel of professionals on a qualitative scale of merit in dozens of distinct book categories.

Each year, Outskirts Press nominates a small percentage of the books published during the year for submission to the EVVY Awards. Since a nomination is the first step toward the Outskirts Press Best Book of the Year Award, the standards are high and these nominations represent the very best of our publications as determined by our executives and members of our production teams.

Outskirts Press official nominees and winners receive additional exposure for their books in featured Outskirts Press marketing channels, including our blog, social media networks, and in our email newsletters. We will be announcing the EVVY Award Finalists and Awards Ceremony details soon on Self-Publishing News so keep an eye out for the blog post and email.

Congratulations to this year’s Official Outskirts Press EVVY Award nominees, presented here in no particular order:

Get A Publishing Upgrade AND an Amazon Kindle Edition!

As you embark on your self-publishing journey, you will discover there are a lot of decisions to be made. From choosing the best self-publishing company to choosing the best options for your book. These choices often depend on your needs as an author, your vision for your book, and your book’s genre. For example, do you have images (illustrations, charts, graphs) in the interior of your book? Does your book have color text or pictures in the interior? What about the cover, trim size, price, and profit margin…?

Now is that time! When you start today, Outskirts Press will add a complimentary upgrade to your publishing package — up to a $500 value! Purchase the Basic Black & White publishing package and we will upgrade you to the more comprehensive Ultimate Black & White or Full-Color package.
