Watch Your Book Sales Skyrocket with Barnes & Noble Read Instantly

As more and more books are purchased online, the “experience” of flipping through the pages prior to buying has become a thing of the past. But there’s just no substitute for taking a glance inside the book when considering a book purchase.

Introducing “Barnes & Noble Read Instantly,” the new book marketing service from Outskirts Press that allows your potential customers the ability to literally “flip through” the digital pages of your book on the Barnes & Noble website.

Browsers become buyers and that is why the new Barnes & Noble Read Instantly marketing option is so powerful, offering the online equivalent to browsing a bookstore. Books that participate feature a “Read Instantly” icon superimposed over their Barnes & Noble paperback, hardback, and/or NOOK cover image, which identifies those books as Read Instantly-Capable.

Are you ready to boost your Barnes & Noble book sales. Buy now.


Would You Like a Book to Go With The Coffee?

How long does it take to get a cup of coffee from your local Starbucks?

This is not a trick question.

From standing in the queue to getting your steaming espresso – 2 minutes, tops?

How long does it take to order and print a book?

2 days? An hour?

Think again!

If the newest Time Magazine’s “Invention of the Year” is anything to go by, then you can have your book ordered and printed in less than 1 minute!

If your reaction right now is one of total amazement, you are not alone! I felt the same way when I saw that Outskirts Press were offering access to the Espesso Book Machine (EBM), an option that will make your book available from multiple sales channels within record time.

What is Espresso Book Machine (EBM)?

KDP SelectPut simply, the EBM is an automated book-making machine. The operator selects a title to print, and within a few minutes a book emerges, with a full-color cover, trimmed to an exact size, and indistinguishable from the publisher version.

At present, the EBM is the only unique digital-to-print retail solution on the market. The content of these books is fed to the machine via EspressNet, On Demand Books’ growing digital network, consisting of over seven million titles. The benefits of EBM (if you haven’t already figured them out), include:

  • Made to order books, printed and compiled within minutes.
  • Increased points of sale, available at numerous EBM locations.
  • Increased exposure within the publishing industry.
So thing about it, how would you feel if you walked into a coffee shop, and saw a reader sipping Latte with one hand, and flipping pages of your recently published and printed “hot-of-the-press” book.

New Marketing Option for Self-Publishing Authors: ForeWord Clarion Guaranteed Book Review

Obtaining book reviews is an important part of your overall book promotion strategy. A positive review from an unbiased reader can often help boost the sales of a book. A book review can help a reader make a decision on one book over another. As important as these reviews are, many books receive either very few or no reviews. As a self-publishing author, how often have you submitted your book to a blogger or other reviewer only to receive no response in return? Or worse yet, have you dreaded even the thought of submitting your book to reviewers?

ForeWord Clarion Guaranteed Book ReviewWhat if you could submit your book for review and actually receive a response — and in a timely fashion? Now Outskirts Press self-publishing authors can now take advantage of our ForeWord Clarion Guaranteed Book Review option. This service allows you to get an unbiased and (most importantly) guaranteed review of your book. You can be confident that the review you receive will be both honest and credible. Also, you know that your book will be reviewed and you won’t have to wait several months like with other reviewers (authors typically receive their review in about ten weeks).

The reviews are written by a professional Clarion reviewer, typically consist of about 200-300 words, and are 100% honest. That means that you could possibly receive a negative review. However, even negative reviews contain elements that can be extracted for marketing purposes and can even be used to improve upon your writing for your next book.
