The best I've found so far.
So I hear that you have written a book?
An achievement of note.
I mean it, well done,
But that’s not the end
You’ve hardly begun!
Get it spell checked, edited, even reviewed
Is it long enough, are chapters complete?
Consider a cover, one which will be viewed
Now, I suspect you are feeling the heat?
Well take my advice as I’ve been there before
Publishing promises you can sometimes afford
Yes they’ll publish your book and even on-line
But book sales desert them, now the book’s mine.
That was my finding until OUTSKIRTS PRESS
Was found to my delight, I now had their address.
A tutor to guide me through pre print and cover
Understanding the questions of an errant book lover.
They announced one day the birth of my book!
I have it to hold, caress and bespoke.
Now that’s where most publishers give up and give in.
On line and on web, for spiders to spin.
OUTSKIRTS PRESS then come into action
The cost for all this is even a fraction
Advertising, promoting, book festivals too
Their client remains, the Author, that’s YOU.
That’s why I trust OUTSKIRTS PRESS
I’ve tried others with little success
But now it’s all change, I wish you to know
Take my advice and your book earnings will have started to grow.
