Introducing Amy Jordan, author of Dance Because You Can: 5 Steps to Transform Trauma into Triumph

“Outskirts Press has published and marketed two books I have written: ‘Dance Because You Can: 5 Steps to Transform Trauma into Triumph’ and ’26 Tips for Easier Living with Diabetes.’ This was my first foray into publishing a book. What was paramount for me with Outskirts is my ability to maintain full ownership of the content of my books. This is relevant due to the documentary feature film about my life premiering soon. I was able to communicate my vision to the editing and author support team. I had specific design ideas that were completely created to my specifications. The marketing team supported the book on Amazon, Barnes & Noble along with countless other author platforms. ‘Dance Because You Can’ was represented at the National Book Fair in New York City. The book was also the 2019 EVVY Award Winner for best self-help. Thank you Outskirts for supporting my intention to spread hope and possibility through my writing.”
