Book Publicity Services and Prices

Services Offered by Authors, Large and Small

Exploratory package, for $300
Ideal to test the viability of a title before investing in a publicity
campaign.  Your book will be read by our team of experts and sample
reviewing readers who will give feedback, post online community reviews,
or both.  After 90 days you will get a final report indicating if a
publicity campaign is likely to yield positive results and, if not,
pinpoint obstacles to the title’s success and offer suggestions to
overcome them.
Emerging Author package, for $750
Best for self published books and small press books that are not
distributed to all retail stores.  We will generate an email pitch and
press release based on your work, locate and list relevant bloggers and
news media outlets (TV, newspaper, and radio) for your genre, send the
press release and your pitch out to bloggers, community reviewers and
media until you receive at least five comprehensive, well-written
reviews of your work or, at least one radio appearance, or a newspaper
calendar mention, or whatever else we determine together makes the most
sense to promote your book.  Provide comprehensive consultation specific
to the needs of the author and the book and, where appropriate, make
connections and provide contact information to pursue opportunities to
advance  the title. After 6 months you will get a final report itemizing
the results and make suggestions for going forward.
