“Being a first time author, I was bewildered. Fortunately, my Author Representatives walked me through the steps easily. They were always willing to answer my questions or concerns within 24 hours. I picked the right place to self-publish for sure. And I get daily emails from my marketing coach that are very helpful. I watch for those emails daily! With Outskirts Marketing Coach, I know I will get great sales. I have had my first book signing and it went very well. Thanks to all the advice I have received.”
