Brent Sampson blog updates

It’s been a while since my last post. June has been busy at Outskirts Press, with a lot going on, so priorities have not allowed the volume of updates to my blog that I would like. When I last posted, we were hosting our free social media webinar, which was our highest attended free webinar yet. Thank you to Elise in our Marketing Support group for putting that together for our authors and those from our social communities who registered.

Two days after that the polls closed on our Best Book of the Year contest and Susan Mercer was recognized as the 2011 Outskirts Press Best Book of the Year award-winner. Congratulations, Susan!

That following Monday we opened up a “sneak peek” for our authors to our new Book Your Trip to Hollywood suite of services designed to help authors turn their books into movies or a television series. And the following Friday we launched those first two Hollywood services officially.

And yesterday we announced additional styles to our growing suite of custom, full-color illustration packages.  Yes, a lot has been going on as Outskirts Press continues to help authors write, publish, and market the book of their dreams. I’ll discuss all of these events in more detail in the coming days/weeks.
