Special Advertising Opportunities through AuthorBuzz + IndieReader

ShelfAwareness Pro + Readers*


Your ad will run in ShelfAwareness Pro, an industry trade publication and ShelfAwareness Readers, which combined reaches over 400,000 readers, 5,000 librarians, 1,000s of bloggers and other industry pros.

How AuthorBuzz Basics Work
As the author, you compose short notes to librarians, readers and bookclub leaders (where applicable). These can include any promotional info you choose, such as:

  • Links to your website, blog or book excerpts
  • Info on setting up phone chats or reading group visits
  • Materials for newsletters
  • Info about contests or giveaways
  • Mention of new reviews

The notes will be sent out, along with your book cover—and in some cases your author photo, via the selected newsletters or websites. The notes will also be featured for one week on the AuthorBuzz.com website and archived.

*These ads are not available for Kindle Unlimited (KU) books. 



Includes four weeks in the Bookmovement newsletter and four weeks on the home page at Bookmovement.com which reaches 100,000 book club leaders/ members, representing 67,000 book clubs (over 430,000 readers!).

Also, includes a giveaway of five books to one book club.

In addition to what’s included in Bookclubbing, you’ll also get a newsletter buzz in DearReader.com, BookTrib.com and BookBrowse.com which reaches 500,000 readers and 10,000 librarians

Karina Halle

New York Times bestselling author

“I’ve used AuthorBuzz on more than one occasion and they’ve always been so easy to work with. M.J. and her team really know their stuff and their expertise can help corner the ad market which enables me to concentrate on what I do best: writing. One of my last releases, Before I Ever Met You, made USA Today twice in a row and I know AuthorBuzz was a big help in getting that book in front of reader’s eyes.”

Steve Berry

New York Times bestselling author

“There is 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, and 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.”
