Mediocrity in America: A Point of View

by Andrew Rodriguez

Price: $12.95

Andrew Rodriguez’s “Mediocrity in America: A Point of View.” A warning has been issued to future generations about mediocrity in America and the fragility of freedom. Will we walk through life without teaching and without learning? Will we become a dogmatic, narrow-minded, inflexible group to fill the vacuum and establish a paralyzed society that will disintegrate as mediocrity becomes the norm?

Your Book Can Make a Great First Impression with a FREE Custom Cover!

There’s a saying: “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” But we do! It’s a fact. And more than this, we judge quickly. First impressions matter in the world of book publishing, and self-published authors sometimes find themselves at a disadvantage. A custom cover, however, can establish your book as a standout on every bookshelf—and reap all the benefits of making a good first impression. Your book will:

  • look professional, lending you credibility as an author;
  • be visible, hooking potential readers’ attention as they browse through their options;
  • reach your ideal readers, and be encoded with all of the subtle visual hints specific to their favorite genres; and
  • be informative and comprehensive, providing all of the necessary components to make your book marketable, including details like ISBN numbers and details to convey your book’s story, characters, themes, motivations and underlying messages.

But how do you acquire a custom cover for your book, especially if you have a limited budget? We at Outskirts Press have the best of all possible solutions! For a limited time during the month of March, we will be offering a FREE Custom Cover Design (valued at $399) with the purchase one of our Ultimate or Full-Color publishing packages. All you need to do to participate is select one of the eligible publishing solutions, above, and enter the promotional code FreeCover at checkout. It really is that simple! But hurry because this offer will only be available for a limited time during the month of March.

Our dedication to putting together high-quality publishing solutions and services for authors doesn’t end with even such a stellar offer as this. Our staff and customer support, as well as the comprehensive and affordable nature of our packages, placed us among the top tier of self-publishing companies last year, a trend we intend to continue.

To learn more about our publishing packages and services, call us at 888-672-6657 (OP-BOOKS) or communicate with one of our staff using the live chat option on our website, www.OutskirtsPress.com.

The British Are Coming … to the London Book Fair, March 14-16!

Tens of thousands of authors, editors, agents, booksellers and other literary industry pros will be converging on London March 14-16 for the annual London Book Fair. Since 1971, the Fair has served as a global marketplace where attendees exhibit, network and negotiate for rights and the sale and distribution of content across print, audio, TV, film and digital channels.

So, why should you care? Because it’s one of the largest literary gatherings in the world … and because Outskirts Press could help you be part of it!

This year, an estimated 25,000 fairgoers from 124 countries will gather in Olympia, West London, to showcase their books before attendees from all corners of the globe and gain valuable exposure. It’s the largest and most popular industry book fair and publishing event in the UK—a place where authors can put their works before legions of fans (and potential fans) and make inroads with powerful industry players. Each year, Outskirts Press represents its self-published authors at the fair, gaining priceless exposure and gathering valuable industry leads.

When you arrange exhibition at the London Book Fair through Outskirts Press, you get the benefit of personal representation without having to book an expensive flight and navigate leads on your own. With our help, authors receive:

  • highly visible, front-facing shelf space with only four Outskirts Press books
  • an Outskirts Press representative who will personally advocate for your book with industry players, and answer vital questions
  • industry leads gathered on your behalf and forwarded directly to you for personal follow-up
  • a full post-fair report with all leads, pictures and a summary of the happenings

It’s a cost-effective way to give your book a huge international marketing boost, without leaving the comfort of your own home! While it’s too late to get involved in the 2017 London Book Fair, Outskirts Press can make sure you’re represented at next year’s event to get the most benefit from every exciting lead!

So, think ahead to 2018 and take your book global at the next London Book Fair with representation from Outskirts Press. Space is limited, so reserve your spot!
