Book Description

Publicity: It sounds like something that only big publishing houses can afford to do, yet any author can increase their publicity and their book sales - and do so on a shoestring budget.

"Author Publicity Pack" will outline over 750 places that authors of all genres can get publicity for themselves and their books.

NOTE:  This book was updated on December 6th, 2013 with over 600 additional resources as described below.  

What is included in this book:
  • 41 Places to Promote Your Book For Free
  • 600+ Places for Authors to Get Exposure for Their Books Through Guest Blogging
  • 8 Free Press Releases Submission Sites
  • 8 Places to Get Book Reviews
  • 20 Book Awards for Which You Can Submit Your Book
  • 5 Media Sources for Authors
  • 43 Paid Advertising Resources
  • 5 Virtual Bookshelves and Forums
  • 34 Facebook Groups for Book Promotion
  • And More!
Because we have personally published many Christian books, we have also included 100+ additional resources specifically for Christian authors.

And in the back of the book, you get access to our bonus 20-page PDF, "Places to Submit Your Free KDP Select Promotion."  We have been using the KDP Select program since January 2011 and have seen our book royalties increase tremendously.  This PDF shares the process I take for each of my free promotions.

Join us and take your marketing to the next level by publicizing your book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Resource February 21, 2013
By Carol
Format:Kindle Edition
I have done extensive research on marketing my books, and I thought that I'd found most of the more popular promotional venues, but Shelley and Heather have really done their homework and discovered even more. They have funneled hours worth of research into one easy-to-read directory that is simple to use and understand. Whether you are just starting out as a writer or you are a seasoned author, I'm sure that you will find new marketing tools in this book.

Note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic bargain for the price July 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I purchased this last night as an impulse buy. I bought it based on Shelley Hitz's reputation as a book marketing expert. It wasn't disappointed.

Before I bought this book, I was convinced that I'd exhausted the list of places where I could promote my books. But after reading this guide, I realize that I wasn't even close. I've found several great places to promote my books, and I really appreciate the fact that there are some sources for free giveaways, 99 cent sales, and ongoing promotion.

The only critique I have is that I wished the listings for sites would specify what kind of books each site will accept. For example, Slake will only list romance books, which means that my own books would not qualify.

All in all, this is an incredibly valuable resource that will save you hours of research.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! February 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a Bestselling author in Religion and Spirituality through Amazon, I can tell you that this "Author Publicity Pack," is an AMAZING resource! I am confident that the resources within this book are going to take my sales to the next level. In fact, I'd recommend using this as a checklist for marketing your book, I'm not sure you need ANYTHING else. I can hardly wait to get started applying what Shelley and Heather have put together. This is truly the most exciting time to be an author, Amazon has provided the avenue for dreams to be achieved and lives to be changed. "Author Publicity Pack" will put you on the fast track to giving your book every opportunity to be successful!

I HIGHLY recommend this book and will be featuring it to all of my clients through WriteSourcePublishingServices.com
Shelley and Heather have eliminated my work in guiding my clients into publishing success.
In fact, I'm considering including this book as part of my publishing package as a "gift" to my clients!

4.0 out of 5 stars Legwork is all done! February 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The authors have given a thorough list of ways to get the word out about your book. There is so much information here! They have compiled hours of legwork into this comprehensive little book. Be aware that some of the links and resources won't apply to all book genres. As a Christian author, I appreciate the sections specifically for Christian markets.

Note: I received a free copy of this eBook in exchange for my honest opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Author Publicity Pack Is Amazing!!! February 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
All of the previous reviewers expressed exactly what I wanted to say about this book. It is truly AMAZING! As an Author, writing takes up a great deal of my time and with a husband and lots of furry pets, I really don't have much time for active research.

I feel as though Shelley and Heather have done me an enormous favor and I am truly grateful to them for all of their hard work.

Truth be told, this book is worth way much more than the asking price.

These two gals are great and I fully intent to keep them on My Favorite Authors List.

I highly recommend this to everyone!

The list of resources alone is well worth the publication. If you don't do at least some of Shelly's recommendations you don't get it.
