COMPLAINTS about Outskirts Press / OutskirtsPress.com

AUTHOR JADIE LEWIS IS ASKING OTHER OUTSKIRTS AUTHORS TO CONTACT HER VIA EMAIL: elisyah@att.net

We compete directly with Outskirts Press. When we reject a manuscript, we never refer those authors to Outskirts Press.

Here’s why: 

Better Business Bureau – 22 complaints

RipOffReport.com – 12 complaints

Yelp.com – 2 negative reviews

ComplaintsBoard.com – 3 complaints

GlassDoor.com – What their employees/contractors have said.

The Alliance of Independent Authors has given a “Caution” rating to Outskirts Press.

Outskirts Press published a book by a convicted serial killer. Solicitor General Mike Morris asked Amazon to stop carrying the book.

And, this book is still up for sale:
Stupid, Sloppy, Sleazy: The Strange Story of Vanity Publisher Outskirts Press. How Do They Stay in Business? I guess Outskirts Press’ lawsuit against the author didn’t work.

Writer Beware has mentioned Outskirts a few times.

About The Author

AngelaPortrait72dpismall_400x400

Angela Hoy is the publisher of WritersWeekly.com, the author of 19 books, and the co-owner of BookLocker.com (one of the original POD publishers that still gets books to market in less than a month), PubPreppers.com (print and ebook design for authors who truly want to self-publish), and Abuzz Press (the publishing co-op that charges no setup fees).

Angela lives on a 52' Irwin Center Cockpit Ketch (sailboat) with her family and pets. Keep up with her family's adventurous liveaboard lifestyle at GotNoTanLines.com

WritersWeekly.com - the free marketing ezine for writers, which features new paying markets and freelance job listings every Wednesday.

BookLocker.com - According to attorney Mark Levine, author of The Fine Print, BookLocker is: "As close to perfection as you're going to find in the world of ebook and POD publishing. The ebook royalties are the highest I've ever seen, and the print royalties are better than average. BookLocker understands what new authors experience, and have put together a package that is the best in the business. You can't go wrong here. Plus, they're selective and won't publish any manuscript just because it's accompanied by a check. Also, the web site is well trafficked. If you can find a POD or epublisher with as much integrity and dedication to selling authors' books, but with lower POD publishing fees, please let me know."

Abuzz Press offers FAST and FREE book publication, but only accepts a small percentage of submissions, and only works with U.S. authors.

PubPreppers.com - "We Prep, You Publish!" Print and ebook design for authors who truly want to self-publish. Offers formatting and design services only, and then provides simple instructions for authors on where to sign up to have the print and ebook editions printed/listed/sold. Cut out the middle man. Keep 100% of what bookstores pay for your book!

Angela's POD Secrets Revealed Series can be found HERE.

Have a POD Book with another publisher? See if BookLocker can give you a better deal. (BookLocker offers "disgruntled author discounts" to those who want to move from other POD services.)
