What Is AuthorBuzz?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 WorksAs 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
How Blog Ads Plus WorksWe 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.
