Silly advice from Kelly Schuknecht of Outskirts Press
Kelly Schuknecht is VP at inept and dishonest pay-to-publish company Outskirts Press.
She previously was "Director of Author Support" at Outskirts, and before that was "Press Release Coordinator." Despite this apparent career advancement, Kelly's Linkedin page says she is interested in "job inquiries." Is she trying to leave a sinking ship?
Kelly is apparently responsible for Outskirts's dreadful press releases, and her blog advises writers. Her own writing is frequently laughable. Kelly says she has a B.A. degree in "Modern Foreign Languages" from James Madison University. Too bad she didn't major In ENGLISH!
She wrote: "If the book is published after 2007, the ISBN is 13 digits long. Prior to 2007, ISBNs were 10 digits long."
And if it was published during 2007, apparently no ISBN was needed.
Kelly, it's time to start reading what you write.
