How would you like me to promote your book?


Advertising on this site is done via bundled packages. With each one you get a certain number of services. Except for the first package, which is set and you can't customize it, you are more than welcome to mix and match services as you'd like.

However, I highly recommend you choose to promote a post long term on Twitter. The initial promotion that all posts get is good, downright amazing by some standards, but the posts on this site that have the highest traffic are the ones with long term Twitter marketing.

Available Services

  • Promo Post
    • Synopsis, large cover, review quotes
  • Excerpt Post
    • (synopsis if the excerpt is short), large cover, excerpt
    • The final length of an excerpt post will be similar to a promo post.
  • Series Post
    • synopsis for one book, large cover for the same book, medium size covers to the other books in the series, and perhaps one review quote depending on the length of the synopsis
    • The length of a series post is about the same as a promo post. The real estate is just used for something different.
  • Author Interview Post
    • I haven't done very many of these, but I don't mind posting one if an author wanted it. 
    • I won't have any questions prepared, so the author would have to basically write the interview.
  • Character Interview Post
    • Same goes for this kind of interview.
  • Tweet Blast 
    • A series of tweets from various Twitter accounts during a short period of time to promote one or more posts, a giveaway, or a similar event. 
    • Although I will not guarantee a certain number of tweets, I will work on the blast for about half an hour or so, meaning there should be at least 50 tweets. 
  • Long Term Twitter Marketing of a Post (Recommended)
    • Tweets about a post occur randomly via various Twitter accounts over several weeks (even months). 
    • Counts as a service for each post promoted. 
    • More tweets in the long run compared to a tweet blast, but neither you or I have control over when the tweets go out, and they are more spread out. The scheduling process is automated.
  • Long Term Twitter Marketing of an Amazon page
    • Same as above but instead of promoting a post on my site, the link will be to an Amazon page (single book page, not author page)
  • Attach a giveaway to a post or series of posts (Package 3 & above)
    • Rafflecopter giveaway add-on. 
    • You may have as many entry options as you'd like, except for a scavenger hunt, which requires another service.
    • I put the giveaway together, but I do not provide the winning item(s). 
    • Comes with a small tweet blast.
    • To generate more interest in a giveaway, I'll promote it via a post with long term Twitter marketing, but you have to choose long term Twitter marketing as one of your services. (recommended)
  • Scavenger Hunt add-on (Package 3 & above)
    • Giveaway service required.
    • To earn more chances in a giveaway, people can answer questions about your book.
    • Answers will be found on one or more of your books' Amazon pages.
    • One question can point toward your website or blog.
    • Up to 5 questions total
      • Only 2 scavenger hunt questions if I have to compose them, and I will only compose questions for an Amazon page. 
  • Advertise to our book club (Packages 5 & 6)
    • I will send an email to our book club members that have signed up for your genre.
    • Available genres
      • Mystery
      • Available genres

      • Erotica
