To help authors spread the word and promote their books, we offer four services and options that will meet every author's needs and budget. Although, 3 out of 4 services are paid for, the fee to be paid is very minimal and very affordable. Here are our services in brief:
Regular / Free Listing:
You can submit your book to be listed under one literary genre / category for Free. You will have a permanent dedicated page for each book which will contain rating and sharing tools and accepts comments. In addition to the book page, the author gets a permanent author's personal profile page, which will also include summary of all his/her listed books. These pages will be announced and shared on social media. Processed within three to four weeks from the time of submission, this listing is done for FREE.
In addition to the features of the Regular / Free Listing, Power Listing receives an expedited treatment; books will be given priority for review and be listed within 48 hours. Power Listing books will also receive extensive sharing on social media (Twenty tweets on Twitter, be posted to several reading and book Facebook groups and communities and more). Power Listings will also be included in the Random Book block, which surface on many pages of the website and acts like an additional advertisement. All of these features will help in giving your book more the exposure and attention it deserves. This Listing fee is USD 4.99.
