40 Book Promoting Sites – Part 1

 

When publishing a book, the key to success is promotion and distribution. Both are meant to give books as much exposure as possible. In order to gain time, it is best to know where to find opportunities to gain exposure easily. This is why we are now creating a list of websites offering  book promotion opportunities.

In the coming weeks, each Tuesday will be devoted to 5 book promoting sites with a short profile of each site.

In addition to the book promoting sites on the list, advertisement space is available on this blog.

    The lower the ranking number, the better the site? I didn’t get that. I would have thought the higher the ranking number, the better the site…

    1. Well, to be on the podium in any competition, you have to be Number 1, 2 or 3. If you are number 6 million and some, you might have a high number, but you need to work a lot more to get a medal. Ranking works according to the same logic.

    Hey, Thanks for taking my podcast logo (which I paid for), downloading it, cropping it, and then using it as the graphic for this series of posts.

    I suppose that was easier than creating an image of your own from scratch. Asking for my permission to do this would have been a nice gesture.

    You’ll find my full podcast logo here

    But, of course, you already did that.

    Patricia,

    unfortunately the list is a bit outdated.
    I worked it, went to every link….

    Please check them all again.

    Cheers, Doris

  5. Thank you for this great idea and all your effort in putting it together.

  6. The Author Tree link doesn’t work. Where should I go? Thanks for this, it’s a great series.

    Awesome idea for a blog series. Definitely getting bookmarked.

    Although, being in the web industry, Alexa rankings don’t carry nearly the same weight as they once did. Still, it’s better than guessing. 🙂
