Join our Christmas and Holiday Book Festival and reach readers!
We're pleased to announce sign-ups are open for our 4th annual Christmas and Holiday Book Festival. December is the month when people from all around the world celebrate the holidays, whether it is Christmas, Hanukkah, Diwali, Yule, Winter Solstice, Rohatsu (Bodhi Day), plus others. What better way to celebrate all these great holidays than with a book festival?
What is our Christmas and Holiday Book Festival? It's a month-long series of spotlights (like the Binge-Worthy Book Festival and New Year New Books Fete events) in December where readers can get their fill of any genre, any format (e-copy, print or audiobook) books that readers won't get enough of (new releases or backlist) plus enter to win a $75 Amazon gift card.
Your book can be any genre, new release or backlist, at any price. Your book needs to be either holiday-themed or take place in December. The holiday doesn't need to be the main theme but it needs to be somewhere in your story. We want everything from middle grade to erotic romance, and everything in between. If you have nonfiction, we'd love to feature those books as well. This event will be promoted as a holiday-themed event.
If you have a sale or a new release in December, this is a smart way to promote your sale or new release for a low price. We can schedule your spot to go live on your release day or on your sale day. Please be sure to tell us the dates so we can coordinate.
Note: your book does NOT need to be on sale for it to qualify for this event.
We'd love to reserve you a spot. The price is $15 USD per book and all heat levels are welcome. As an added bonus for our dedicated clientele, you can purchase social media follower add-ons for $8 per platform. Your options are TikTok, website, newsletter, blog, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Bookbub, Amazon, Goodreads, YouTube, Book + Main, Tumblr, TikTok, LinkedIn, and Snapchat. This is an inexpensive way to gain followers the organic way.
When signing up for an add-on, please make sure you already have an account. We don't create an account for you. The entrants will need to sign up voluntarily, as per GDPR and CAN-SPAM rules. We don't collect email addresses and hand them out to you in an Excel spreadsheet like other promotional companies do.
Each book spotlight will be posted on N. N. Light's Book Heaven on a scheduled day throughout December. We don't post them all up at once but staggered throughout the month. It's a proven marketing technique as our readers love coming back each day to see what books are being featured. We're also giving out a customized graphic ($11 value) for every book featured in this event. To see an example, please scroll up to the very top of this post to see the graphic.
Like all of our promotions, the Christmas and Holiday Book Festival will have its own event page, will be promoted every day and we will hand out promotional materials (like we do for our monthly giveaway program) which includes graphics and promo copy before the event starts.
The Christmas and Holiday Book Festival will go live December 1 so sign up today. There's a limited number of spots so don't delay. I don't want you to miss out on this inexpensive and successful promo to market your books.
Click the link below to be taken to our general contact page. Put "December Author Event" in the subject line so I know which event you're signing up for. Please be sure to include: author name, book title(s), how many book spots you want to reserve, how many social media follower add-ons you'd like along with which platforms and your Paypal address.
Please share with your author groups and friends. We'd love to have them join us for our Christmas and Holiday Book Festival.
