Please send your publicity/promotional information (press kit) in html format along with your book review request, interview, or guest post, to one of the blog authors listed on our About page. The html instructions are at the bottom of this page. This will save you a step and save us hours of time searching for links and downloading and uploading pictures. You can use this same html document over and over again to send other bloggers for book tours and the like. Sending a pre-written html post will help convince reluctant bloggers to feature your book because you’ll look professional–and it’s one less post they’ll have to write.
What to include:
1. book cover picture
3. book video (if you have one)
4. praise (You must first obtain permission to reprint review excerpts.)
5. purchase links
6. short author bio(s)
7. social media links such as website, blog, Facebook, Google+, Twitter, etc.
8. contact information. You want fan letters, right? At least fan emails.
Instructions: How to make your kit in HTML
As mentioned above, you can send the same html document to every blogger. They use as is or adjust as needed for their website (we don’t all have the same width or background colors) Of course, once you’ve created your post you may decide to use a blog as part of your author platform. Just remember how much time it took to create one post and subtract that from your writing time each day. If you’re interested, we’re always looking for guest posters and/or collaborators for an author co-operative to cross-promote each other and get back more writing time. Same genre rules as above.
