“Outskirts press is outstanding. As a first-time author, I was full of tons of questions. I researched several publishing companies and I am so glad I decided on Outskirts Press. Now that the book is in print, I can look back at the publishing process with a huge sigh of relief. What makes Outskirts Press outstanding is their communication. When I look back at my emails, there was never a time that they did not respond in a timely fashion to put this author at ease that everything was moving along as planned. You see, they could see into the future where I could not. I love the transition in the communication from the first email I received from the Manuscript Review Specialist to each representative that followed. They were professional and made me feel like my questions were valid (trust me there were tons) I am so thankful for each of the following departments, pre-production specialist, author representative, production team, and production manager, I didn’t understand at the time how valuable each one was to the overall success of my book. I am glad they are experts in their fields. Now that the book is in print what impresses me the most is the follow-up emails from the Marketing COACHes, I truly feel like Outskirts Press wants me to succeed.”
