Outskirts Press

Outskirts Press is a Denver, Colorado-based book publisher which caters to self-publishing authors.


The company is based in Parker, Colorado, and offers print on demand self-publishing services, wholesale digital distribution to Ingram Content Group and Baker & Taylor, and online-order fulfillment.

Around 150 contractors (as of July 2007) throughout the United States are used to assist authors with production issues such as editing, formatting, illustrations and cover design.[1]

In 2004, Outskirts Press and F&W Publications reached a sponsorship agreement whereby Outskirts Press would publish the annual Writer’s Digest Writing Competition Collection.[2] As of 2008 the arrangement continued for the fifth year running.[3]

The company was founded by an author, Brent Sampson, as a result of his frustration in trying to get his own work published, and incorporated in 2003.[1] Between 2004 and 2007 revenue rose rapidly, from $95,000[1] to $3.2 million[4] and in 2007 the Denver Business Journal called it the third fastest-growing privately held company in the state.[4]

In 2009, Outskirts Press was recognized by Inc. 500 as the fastest-growing self publishing company.[5][6]

In 2016, the company claimed it was duped by convicted serial killer Robert Pickton into agreeing to publish a book about him.[7][8] Outskirts Press said it would cease publication of the book and asked Amazon.com to remove the book from its website.[8]
