Denver, CO (PRWEB) January 16, 2008
Outskirts Press, Inc. (http://www.outskirtspress.com) announced this week an innovative new promotional package for its published authors that offers invaluable exposure to the attendees of four major international book fairs. Capturing the attention of publishing professionals has always been the hardest part of self-publishing and now this new optional service secures coverage for Outskirts Press authors at some of the biggest events in publishing.
The book tour, which kicks off in April at the London Book Fair, gives participating authors the chance to have their titles exposed to publishers, agents, editors, and buyers through prominent, face-out presentation on exclusive Outskirts Press shelves at each event. Backed by knowledgeable publishing representatives, who can answer inquiries and facilitate further personal contact with the authors, the Outskirts Press International Book Fair Tour is the perfect vehicle for getting self-published works into the hands of a wider audience.
"Oftentimes, self-published authors are left to fend for themselves when it comes to increasing awareness for their published books, but not at Outskirts Press," CEO Brent Sampson states. "This international book tour is just one more example of how Outskirts Press is constantly looking for new and valuable ways to get our writers' works noticed, whether in an author's home town or across the globe."
Stops on the international tour are:
-- London Book Fair. This annual fair, slated for April 14-16, is regarded by many as the most important spring publishing event, and welcomes 23,000 publishers, literary agents, librarians and buyers from more than 100 countries.
-- Book Expo of America. Set for May 29 to June 1 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, the BEA brings together more than 100,000 international attendees, authors, publishers, agents and buyers for the American market.
-- Beijing International Book Fair. Taking place Sept. 1-4, this event in one of the world's fastest-growing markets is a must for those looking to take advantage of the surging Chinese readership--which has publishers and translators desperate to feed the demand.
-- Frankfurt Book Fair. The world's premiere event for international publishers and buyers, this year's fair will take place Oct. 15-19, and draw more than 10,000 industry insiders.
Schedules for this marketing package, dubbed "The Platinum Package" are available online at http://outskirtspress.com/marketing/platinum.php .
