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.

We work with fiction, non-fiction and, through our KidsBuzz service, young-adult as well as middle-grade and picture books. We also offer Ads Plus campaigns using 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 website and archived indefinitely.

How Ads Plus Works

We choose the right media for your budget - from 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.
