At this time of year there are many authors who are releasing books ahead of the main selling period in the year. As usual I will be doing Christmas promotions for books starting end of November, but between then and now, it is a perfect opportunity to make sure your new books are on the shelves of the Cafe and Bookstore and ready for promotion.
If you are in the Cafe and Bookstore already, then all I need is the link to Amazon where the book is either on pre-order or is available between now and Christmas.
You can check for your entry here and let me know if there are any changes to covers, new releases or recent reviews from August and September 2018 that I have missed: Sally’s Cafe and Bookstore Free Promotion
If you are not already in the Cafe and Bookstore, then this is the information I need to put together a promotion for you.
For the promotion I will need the following emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Link to Amazon for the book (preferably your author page even if you only have one book this is an essential marketing tool and makes it a great deal easier for people like myself who are promoting your work) Also if you have a central book link site on your blog or website that is useful.
- If you do not have an Amazon author page yet, then I will need an author profile photo or image and your official author’s bio. Please send any images attached to the email not inserted into it.
- You main social media links including website, blog, twitter, facebook, linkedin, goodreads and google+. Links in full please not short links, as they do not always work when inserted into WordPress.
- In my experience of promoting authors in the last 14 years, it is not as effective if you do not have some presence on social media and a central page on Amazon or Goodreads where readers can connect with you and see all your work together in one place.
- Please note that my blog has some young followers so I do not accept 18+ books.
Thanks for dropping by and look forward to hearing your news so that I can share on the blog and across social media. Sally
