‘buzzing’ about their books.”
With the Outskirts Press Kirkus Guaranteed Review, authors will have two copies of their book submitted to Kirkus for a standard service review. Kirkus qualified reviewers include librarians, business executives, journalists from national publications, PhD’s in religion and literature, and creative executives in the entertainment and publishing industries. A full review of two to three hundred words will be ready within ten to twelve weeks and authors can use the review as they see fit: on the back cover of their books, on their own sites, in letters to agents, publishers, librarians or book store owners, or in any of their other marketing collateral.
Kirkus reviews can be cantankerous or complimentary, but they are always known for their honesty. Consequently, even one praiseworthy phrase from a Kirkus reviewer becomes potent advertising copy for a new author’s book.
For a limited time, Outskirts Press published authors can get 25% off the Kirkus Guaranteed Review option with the promotion code KIRKUS25.
