Denver, CO (PRWEB) August 13, 2008
Getting published just got a whole lot easier, thanks to the relaunched Web site of Outskirts Press that boasts a fresh look and more efficient access to tools, services and resources.
Version 2.0 of http://www.outskirtspress.com recently went live, sporting a more streamlined, user-friendly interface and several new features for self-publishing writers. The new site allows writers to kick-start their book publication even faster than before through a turbo-charged Author's resource Center that empowers authors to approve book publication within hours and even start the pre-production steps before spending a cent. Further enhancements allow authors to choose from special book pricing plans and exercise more pricing control than ever.
"We've always prided ourselves on taking the sting out of getting published, with author-driven publishing packages that grant writers full control over their pricing and profit," states CEO Brent Sampson. "Our new website furthers that feeling by delivering a faster, more customized way for writers to become published authors. Naturally, all the benefits that have made Outskirts Press the fastest-growing full-service publisher remain: authors still keep 100% of their rights and 100% of their royalties."
Visitors to http://www.outskirtspress.com will notice a fresher look on top of familiar consistencies. Along the left-hand side you will still find easy access to author testimonials, promotions, newsletters, publishing guides, and the author bookstore. The top of the site features a new search component along with a menu of tabs that take users to specific sections of the website, devoted to writing, publishing, and marketing. Children's book authors can even see sample artwork and price lists for the award-winning (and royalty-free) full-color illustration packages only available with Outskirts Press, at http://www.outskirtspress.com/art
A "Get Published" button is prominently displayed on each page, which takes writers to the Author's Resource Center. It's the heart of http://www.outskirtspress.com, where authors begin the simple, four-step process of seeing their dream of publication realized. From there, writers may select their professional Author Representative--a personal point of contact who will help them through each step of the process as needed by each author.
"Whenever authors need help, our full-service author representatives are just a click away. Of course, the new Author's Center is so user-friendly and full of online information that authors routinely register and approve production of their book within an hour," Sampson adds. "This new online production process directly benefits our writers. After all, the quicker authors get published, the faster they start receiving the 100% royalties we pay."
