Book Marketing and Publicity Support Services for Small Publishers and Self-Published Authors
In addition to our full publicity campaigns, we have a number of additional services that are designed to provide professional book publicity and marketing marketing support to self-published authors and small publishers who are running their own promotion campaigns.
Our book marketing and publicity services include
Two Week Book Publicity Service
A great way to use our professional skills and contacts to get you started with your own publicity, or for a more targeted campaign.
We create a professionally designed press release and personally pitch your book to at least two subject areas, including as much follow-up as we are able to do within the time period. At the end of the service we will provide you with a list of media contacts who have shown interest in your project for you to follow-up yourself.
NetGalley Book Review Services
NetGalley (www.netgalley.com) is an online review network for ebooks. Essentially, it is a way for publishers and publicists to get ebooks into the hands of media professionals, reviewers, bloggers and librarians in the format that they need for their ebook reading device. It is a fantastic way for authors to start generating reviews, establish marketing activity and build their author platform.
We upload your book, book cover, blurb, author information, website links and metadata to the site. Reviewers can learn about your book and, if interested, request to download your book. That request comes to us for approval and if we approve them they are able to download and read your book for free. Their download is DRM protected, cannot be copied or forwarded and has an expiry date.
There are over 100,000 reviewers registered with NetGalley and about 75% of responses come from the US (the remainder are worldwide) so we recommend that books are or soon will be available as ebooks in the US for the best results. Please also keep in mind that reviews are always honest and can be glowing, critical or anywhere in between.
We have two levels of service for NetGalley:
Standard NetGalley Listing
Your book will be uploaded and listed on NetGalley for 4 weeks. We will administer download requests for you and pass any reviews on to you.
Your book will be uploaded and listed on NetGalley for 6 weeks. We will administer download requests for you and pass any reviews on to you. Toward the end of the NetGalley listing term we will personally contact all of the readers who have downloaded your book to encourage them to review the book. We will also urge reviewers to post their reviews on their blog, Amazon and/or Goodreads as well as NetGalley.
Book Press Release Service
A bespoke professional press release created after consultation with the author. Designed to target the book to its best media audience and to provide information to media contacts in a way that they will respond to.
Book Media Pitch Service
You provide us with a press release (or we can create a professional press release for you as above) and we send out your press release to a list of media targeted by subject with a professionally created covering email highlighting relevant media interest points. The number of media contacts reached varies according to the subject but is generally between 200 and 500 named people working across television, radio, newspapers, magazines and online media. All responses will be passed on to you for follow-up.
