New Blog Chock Full Of Book Publishing News

A new self-publishing blog from Outskirts Press is keeping authors up to date with must-read news on publishing industry trends, book marketing tips, and inspiring success stories from published writers.

The Self-Publishing News blog, launched Aug. 1 at, provides insider perspective on self-publishing tailored to the needs of authors. With a rapid posting schedule of at least 3-times-a-week, posts have already included interviews with two successful self-published writers, expert advice on increasing a book's chances of being a hit, and insight into the self-publishing industry's future. Upcoming posts will spotlight author accolades, examples of hot new marketing tools (such as book video trailers) and case studies of what's working for other self-published authors.

"At Outskirts Press, we never want our authors to feel like they're in this business alone. Our new Self-Publishing News blog is one more way we support all writers before, during and after publication," states CEO Brent Sampson. "At the same time, we envision the Self-Publishing News blog as a place to recognize the vast accomplishments of our Outskirts Press authors specifically, including awards and marketing triumphs."

As with any blog, Self-Publishing News is open for anyone, whether or not they are published with Outskirts Press. The blog offers valuable insight into the industry along with cutting-edge media, rich in graphics, video, and audio presentations.
