Promote your books so readers can shake off those doldrums... #bookmarketing #marketing #authorevent
We're pleased to announce sign-ups are open for our third annual Shake Off Winter Doldrums Book Festival. March is typically when we all grow a little weary of winter and yearn for spring. Readers are also craving something, anything, to get them through until spring arrives. We believe your books are the perfect solution to the winter blues and we'd love to promote your books in our upcoming event. Shake Off Winter Doldrums Book Festival is a month-long series of spotlights (like the Spring Break Bookapalooza and Fall Into These Great Reads Bookathon events) in March 2022 where readers can get their fill of any format (e-copy, print or audiobook) books (new releases or backlist) in any genre plus enter to win a $75 Amazon gift card. Your book can be any genre, new release or backlist, any format. We want everything from middle grade to erotic romance, and everything in between. If you have nonfiction, we'd love to feature those as well. If you have a boxed set or anthology you're taking part in, this is a great promo for you as well. This event will be promoted as a beat those winter blahs with these books event.
If you have a book sale or a new release in March, 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. Just 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.
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, LinkedIn, Mix, 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. We don't collect email addresses and hand them out to you in an Excel spreadsheet.
Each spotlight will be posted on N. N. Light's Book Heaven on a scheduled day throughout March. 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.
Like all of our promotions, the Shake Off Winter Doldrums 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.
Shake Off Winter Doldrums Book Festival will go live on March 1 so sign-up today. There's a limited number of spots so sign up soon. I don't want you to miss out on this inexpensive and successful promo to market your books.
