Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) August 22, 2005
Following in the footsteps of the alternative film and music industries, a local publishing company in Parker is making it possible for anybody to publish a book and list it on Amazon.com for sale.
It is so easy, in fact, that now publishing a book is easier than reading one, if you happen to be reading ÂSelf-Publishing SimplifiedÂ which became available as a free e-book today from the Outskirts Press website at http://www.OutskirtsPress.com.
ÂThe Industrial Revolution revolutionized publishing once, the Digital Revolution is doing it again,Â Outskirts Press President and published author Brent Sampson stated.
Within four months, an author can turn an electronic manuscript in a word processor into a published book on Amazon.com by following the steps outlined in ÂSelf-Publishing Simplified.Â Authors have been doing this for years, but ÂSelf-Publishing SimplifiedÂ tells them how to avoid the 55% discount required by AmazonÂs ÂAdvantageÂ program, how to acquire single ISBN numbers and barcodes, and how to secure distribution via Ingram and Baker & Taylor.
ÂBy taking advantage of the turn-key publishing packages offered by Outskirts Press, authors can get published, distributed, and listed online without exerting any more effort than submitting their manuscript via email as a word processor file.Â
Why would a writer elect self-publishing rather than a traditional publishing contract? The same reason a famous author like Stephen King would, who rattled the publishing industry when he offered free installments of ÂThe PlantÂ from his own website.
ÂAll authors want to set their own pricing, maintain all their publishing rights, and control their own destiny,Â Brent Sampson summarized. ÂNow it is possible with Outskirts Press.Â
