“Just as I began searching for a publishing house for my new book, Peeling Back the Layers. I had the golden opportunity to meet with a number of authors who had used various self-publishing companies. Many of them had horror stories of poor craftsmanship and poor customer service from the companies they had entrusted with their life’s dream work. However, one author’s work stood head-and-shoulders above the rest. That’s the author who had used the services of Outskirts Press. The quality of his book rivaled that of the biggest and best publishing houses in the country but for a fraction of the costs. Now that my book has received the dedicated services from Outskirts Press, I too am proud of the end results and the proof is in the interest and buzz it has generated. Visit: lawaynechildrey.com”
