Denver, CO (PRWEB) January 30, 2008
Solidifying its position as the self-publisher of choice for black/white text and now children's books, Outskirts Press, Inc. (http://www.outskirtspress.com) this week announced a new suite of full-color illustration packages that brings the company's emphasis on service and customer control to children's book illustrations--all while providing substantial savings.
The custom illustration packages simplify the process of publishing a children's book by offering authors a fast and easy way to add gorgeous, full-color original artwork to their stories.
"Up until now, self-publishing an illustrated children's book has been very difficult, even with the advances in print-on-demand publishing." Outskirts Press CEO Brent Sampson states. "Finding the right artistic style, negotiating rights with the artist, absorbing the expense - these were among the most daunting parts of children's publishing. It shouldn't be that way."
With the announcement of the new custom illustration packages, the hurdles to children's publishing are now gone. With at least 10 different styles to choose from within a range of pricing tiers, the new packages take the guesswork out of children's illustrations. "Finally, it is economically feasible to publish a full-color children's book," Sampson continues. "The prices are affordable and the artwork is extraordinary." Furthermore, the author does not have to split their royalty earnings with the artist, which is common with other publishers.
Of course, authors still receive all the support and guidance they need through Outskirts Press' helpful Author Representatives, as well as everything else included in the Full-Color Pearl publishing package: Professional interior layout; placement online with Amazon and Barnes & Noble; extensive wholesale distribution; a customized author web page and more. As a full-service self-publisher, Outskirts also offers a slew of other options--addressing everything from marketing to editing--so authors are not left to fend for themselves.
In addition to the Pearl package, Outskirts provides other flexible publishing packages designed for just about any publishing need. More details about the full color illustration packages are available at http://www.outskirtspress.com/art.
