“My experience was great, and I tell people how great Outskirts Press is! The ONLY problem I had was my author’s hardback copies were a bit faded–the paperback was gorgeous (both print and pictures)–so they were replaced. I was disappointed that the photographs were still not as dark and crisp as they should have been, but the print was good.”
