Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) September 20, 2006 –-
Custom, personal gifts are all the rage. Custom cars, custom cell phones, custom I-pods, custom ring-tones. Now one publisher is offering customized children’s books that earn royalties with Amazon and Barnes & Noble book sales.
Outskirts Press, Inc, located on the outskirts of Denver, Colorado introduces the first fully-illustrated customized children’s books for the 2006 holiday season. Several companies like Kodak and Yahoo have been offering custom photo-albums for a number of years, but only one copy is available, usually at a cost ranging from $40 to $60. Another copy for friends or family members costs another $40 – $60 each.
Custom children’s book publishing with Outskirts Press is different. The $299 package price includes true publication and distribution of each customized book, with the consumer as the recognized author on the book. Each book receives a unique ISBN and barcode for distribution. The book is automatically distributed online with e-retailers like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Borders, Powells, and Books-a-Million.
Each book has a retail price of $9.95 so friends or family members can purchase a copy for themselves. The parents are now published authors, earning a healthy 20% royalty for each book sold online. Or the child can be the designated author for a truly spectacular present. Additional full-color copies of the book are available to the author personally for the wholesale price of $7.99. Best of all, the child and author receive their own author webpage that showcases the book and where to buy it online.
Online orders are already being received and processed. The quick, customized ordering procedure begins at http://www.outskirtspress.com/kids by indicating whether the star of the book will be a boy or a girl. The colors change to blue or pink, respectively, and the site asks for the names of the main character, the main character’s friend, and the puppy that joins in on the adventure. After a short registration process the entire book, including the personalized story and full-color illustrations, is immediately available to view in its entirety absolutely free. Every child this season will want to be in their own children’s book that they can show-off on Amazon.com.
