“My experience with the Outskirts Press team was excellent in producing a beautiful children’s book. Responses to my questions were always timely and on point. At appropriate times, I was briefed on what to expect at different stages in the publishing process and found this information to be extremely helpful going forward. I never felt alone; my author representative was wonderful. She provided sound advice and effective guidance throughout this journey. There were a couple of times that I could have made a serious mistake in my choice of action and she did not let that happen. I am very grateful to her for her professionalism. Since my book is a children’s story, illustrations were crucial. The Illustration Specialist who facilitated the synergy of my detailed scene descriptions with the wonderful artistry of an Outskirts Press illustrator in creating the book’s ten illustrations was very helpful ensuring that the images met my approval. I am currently working on a suspense novel and another children’s book and look forward to working with Outskirts Press again for both of these books. Thank you Outskirts Press!”
