Instead of doing my Book Talk Tuesday author interview, I’m posting a list of free places an author can use to promote their books. Every author knows how difficult it is to promote their novels. It’s a time consuming and overwelming process to make yourself and your work visible. I hope you find these helpful. 🙂
As an author you can rate your own book for the readers. Pretty cool. Note: “You need to have at least five reviews on the Amazon US website before you can post.”
Got a free book coming up on Amazon.com in the next 30 days? Pixel of Ink will try to feature your book on the day its free (time and space permitted)
Offers authors different plans (paid and free). Their free plan includes the Book Tweeter which “markets and promotes your book on Twitter. You can schedule auto-tweets on Twitter but in a way that does not irritate or annoy your followers. Perfect to gain additional exposure on Twitter without wasting hours of your day everyday.”
Guest Blogging Opportunity and Book Cover Feature!
“We’re currently recruiting for article and post writers for the Black Lion Bulletin, our monthly newsletter. These are great opportunities for free promotion of your writing and/or blogs.
When an article is submitted, and approved, the author or blogger will also receive a ½ page feature in the newsletter. We will be accepting 2-3 articles per month. Submission is free, but must follow our guidelines. For this purpose those are: Clean content and it must be an article related to, or beneficial to writers and readers.
We’re also accepting up to five author features per month. This is free to authors who would like a ½ page feature in the monthly newsletter.
Book Cover feature! We’re going to hold a monthly contest for a book cover feature. The winning cover will be featured as a full-page, with up to three author and book links.”
“On the day that you would like your book featured please send me a Twitter or Facebook message with the details of your promotion. I will attempt to feature it, however I cannot guarantee that your book will be spotlighted.”
Offers an OPEN BOOK FRIDAY on their Facebook page.
“…a place where you post your own article about your title and can reach the readers.” They don’t review book. “We give you a platform to tell everyone what do you think is most interesting about your book and what you think will interest readers so much that they will go and buy your book.”
An Amazon forum were writers can talk about their books.
Post your book in our New Books section! A great way to share your book with readers.
