A new year and some new resolutions

For the first time since 2014, “losing weight” was NOT the #1 New Year’s Resolution, according to Marist College Institute for Public Opinion. The new #1 is “being a better person.”

Losing weight and exercising more tied for 2nd place.

In third place was spending less and saving more money.

And that’s where Outskirts Press can help you, especially if publishing a book is ALSO one of your New Year’s Resolutions, as it often is for many, many people every year.

All month long you can save 17% on the a la carte package of your choice. See all the details here: http://outskirtspress.com/book-publishing.html

Here’s to your great successes in the coming year!

 

 

Celebrating our Authors’ Accomplishments in 2016

2016 has been quite a year for Outskirts Press authors!  For the first time ever, one of our authors has back-to-back wins in our annual Best Book of the Year Awards. Andrew Ceroni followed-up on last year’s win for Snow Men with another win this year with MERIDIAN. He is now leveraging those successes to land a literary agent and a publishing contract.

In fact, so many of our authors win so many awards for their books, it becomes impossible to list all of them. That’s why we have a Pinterest board devoted to all our award-winning books. Take a look!

And that’s why we interview so many of our amazing authors, like just recently…

Publishing a book is such an empowering experience, and all our authors have such amazing stories to share! Keep an eye on the Self Publishing News blog for even more interviews from, and feature spotlights on, our prolific and award-winning authors in 2017, like…


Dr. Dawn Menge
Who has published 7 children’s books thus far, and each one of them has won at least 3 awards!



Dr. T. Charles Brantley
Who has published 21 books thus far, and counts among our most prolific clients!




Brooke Lewis
Who just published book #2, with many more to come. See her red carpet interview here, and just a few of her many television appearances here and here.

Nikki DuBose
Who just published book #1, but what a book it is — a tell-all memoir and a bombshell to the modeling industry! See just a few of her many television interviews here and here.

 

But awards and interviews are just a small example of all the amazing accomplishments our authors have enjoyed over the past year. For instance, Landria Onkka’s first of two books with Outskirts Press, The Rooftop Christmas Tree, was optioned for a cable television movie earlier this year and went into production soon thereafter.

It stars Michelle Morgan and Tim Reid and it is premiered on Up TV on November 27th.  Check out the trailer here and be sure to watch this heart-warming family movie-based-upon-the-book as it airs throughout the holiday season.

There are so many more success stories from 2016 — when you publish around 1500 books a year by around 1000 talented writers, success stories occur daily– and you can read about a newly published author every day here.

Congratulations to them all! And here’s to an equally amazing 2017!

Award-Winning Books by Outskirts Press Authors

In the continuing theme of giving thanks this month, and recognizing the accomplishments of our amazing authors at Outskirts Press, I wanted to bring everyone’s attention to our Pinterest Boards at http://pinterest.com/outskirtspress, particularly the Board that lists our award-winning authors and their books.  We have several boards that do this, including one devoted to our Best Book of the Year awards; but as impressive as that is, perhaps even more impressive is this one, which lists all our award-winning books that we know of (if your book should be on this board and isn’t, please tell us):

The direct link to our Award-Winning Books by Outskirts Press Authors Pinterest board is at: https://www.pinterest.com/outskirtspress/award-winning-books-by-outskirts-press-authors/

We’ve always said Outskirts Press is where award-winning writers publish award-winning books. And now you can see why…

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

What a year for Outskirts Press authors!

In the spirit of the season, I would like to take a moment to thank our clients for entrusting us with the important task of publishing their manuscripts. Many of us are writers ourselves, so we understand the fear or uncertainty that can sometimes accompany handing over your book to a team of professionals.  Speaking of which, I would also like to thank all the talented people who work tirelessly to publish so many high-quality, professional, and award-winning books for our clients every day.   Just a quick glance at our new releases demonstrates the love and attention we give to every book we publish.

It has been an exciting year at Outskirts Press and 2017 promises to be even better!  For the first time ever, one of our authors has back-to-back wins in our annual Best Book of the Year Awards. Andrew Ceroni followed-up on last year’s win for Snow Men with another win this year with MERIDIAN.

In fact, so many of our authors win so many awards for their books, it becomes impossible to list all of them, but we try our best on our Outskirts Press blog, where you can see all this year’s EVVY Winners,  and interviews with select winners like Ellen Deery Freeman and Marie-Yolaine Williams and Diane M. Bassett.  Keep an eye out for even more interviews from our award-winning authors this holiday season and in 2017.

But awards and interviews are just a small example of all the amazing accomplishments our authors have enjoyed over the past year. For instance, Landria Onkka’s first of two books with Outskirts Press, The Rooftop Christmas Tree, was optioned for a cable television movie earlier this year and went into production soon thereafter.

It stars Michelle Morgan and Tim Reid and it is premiering on Up TV on November 27th.  Check out the trailer here and be sure to watch this heart-warming family movie-based-upon-the-book when it airs throughout the holiday season.  Yes, we’ll be interviewing Landria about her amazing experience, and maybe, just maybe, she will shed a little light on how you can get a movie made out of your book, too!

Of course, that is just a very small sample of all the amazing successes our authors have had in 2016.  Congratulations to all of them. Keep up the great work!

And thank you!
