Author Network

BookJet Publicity's Author Network is a collection of services. It contains all of the necessary services for advertising books at book launches. In rare situations, the technique can be tweaked to assist resurrect sales of a previously published or backlisted book.

There are two categories, each with a six-month retainer period. We can add extra services and establish a custom retainer for extended time periods based on your needs.

Tier One Author Network

Book Reviews

To obtain book evaluations, a variety of tactics are employed. We use a multi-pronged strategy that incorporates traditional book publishing channels as well as our own team of BookJet Publicity's Book Bloggers.

  • For advanced reviews, a three-month listing on NetGalley is available. (Dates are subject to change.)

  • Books or advanced reader copies (ARCs) sent to Bookjet Publicity's Book Bloggers—we have a team of nearly 40 book bloggers.

  • Instagram, Facebook, Amazon, Goodreads, a reviewer's own blog or website, and other social media profiles are common places to find book reviews.

Press Release

BookJet Publicity has a database of over 15,000 media connections. We create a personalized list that focuses on media that is relevant to your book and the story behind the story. Your press release will promote your book or another issue of interest to the public.

  • At least 3,000 email addresses will be included in your personalized list.

  • The press release can be published on BookJet Publicity's or your own website, giving you a link to share on social media and SEO benefits.

  • There are two revisions included in the price (extra revisions are $75 each).

Press and Media Pitching

Members of the press and media will be offered you and your book. They might wish to write a review, incorporate it in an article, or conduct an author interview with you.

  • Tip sheets with a list of authors/books to consider are provided to our media list.

  • Once a month, you will be included. (After their press release is distributed, pre-launch books are included.)

  • BBC, Marketwatch, USA Today blog, Forbes, CNN International, KTLA Morning News, LA Talk Radio, Fox News, Vertikal Life Magazine, The DISHH, Associated Press, The Good Men Project, Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, ESPN Radio, LA Wave Magazine, Tolucan Times, com, and others are examples of media placements and interest we've received for previous clients.

  • For TV and top-tier channels, more robust media pitching packages are available — contact us for an unique quote.

Pre-released books may be featured as a teaser (coming soon) book for at least one month before their official publication.

  • Articles are written in accordance with a well planned editorial calendar that takes into account current trends, consumer reading habits, and seasonal purchasing patterns.

  • There will be a link to your Amazon book page, your website, or other retailers.

  • Driving traffic to Amazon and merchants like Barnes & Noble helps promote your book via their remarketing and advertising channels.
