What Is AuthorBuzz?

“There's a simple advertising maxim that applies to publishing: 'Tell people over and over that a book exists — and many of them will buy it.' The trick is in knowing how to tell them, where to tell them, and for how long. That's where AuthorBuzz earns its keep. They know the answers to all of those questions. Listen to them. You won't be sorry.”NYT bestseller Steve Berry​
AuthorBuzz is a marketing service that puts authors directly in touch with readers, reading groups, booksellers and librarians. Since 2005 we have provided the foremost opportunity for authors to make personal connections and offer extra perks to the people who buy, sell, read and recommend their books.

As an author, AuthorBuzz is your marketing partner. We get your buzz out by partnering with successful online publications including Shelf-Awareness.com, DearReader.com, BookMovement.com, PublishersMarketplace.com and KindleNationDaily.com.

We work with fiction, non-fiction and, through our KidsBuzz service, young-adult as well as middle-grade and picture books. We also offer Blog Ads Plus campaigns using a combination of blogs as well as Facebook, Goodreads, and other online services depending on your budget and needs.

How AuthorBuzz Works

As an author, you compose short notes, to booksellers & librarians, readers and leaders of bookclubs (when applicable). These can include any promotional information you choose, such as:
  • Links to websites, blogs and excerpts
  • Info on setting up phone chats or reading group visits
  • Materials for newsletters
  • Info about contests or giveaways
  • Mentions of new reviews
The notes will be sent out, along with the book cover and in some cases an author photo, via the newsletters or websites. The notes will also be featured for one week on the AuthorBuzz.com website and archived indefinitely.

How Blog Ads Plus Works

We choose the right media for your budget - from popular blogs, Facebook, and Goodreads to a host of other online services. We will write, design and create the ads and then run and monitor them. Read more.
