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!
