Outskirts Press Complaint - Outskirts Press - Out of touch with public.

Review by terrydorn on 2010-07-04
DENVER, COLORADO -- Outskirts press produced a book for me, it looked good, but it was a hurried up job. Then came the real surprise, Marketing. BOOK BLAST: Now that you are published you need to broadcast your book to sell it. You need A Custom press release, PR Publicist Campaign, Personal Marketing Assistant, Book Review Submission Service, Book Blast Package – $999.00. Their help rushed through the services, spent very little time phoning and emailing me. The results NO BOOK SALES BY THEM! They as much as told me in an email that it was my fault that the book didn’t sell. Every where I go I have no trouble selling my book and people like it’s message. Outskirts Press is about $$$$, promise a lot grab a lot and then SORRY it’s not our fault! Terry Dorn – Author

Self publishing is just that - you use your own funds to have the press print your book. You can choose to market and distribute the book yourself, pay them to do it for you, or hire a third party marketing agency to do it.

Expecting a self publishing press to market your book for the cost of printing them is like expecting Kinko's to distribute fliers for you just because you used their photocopier.
