The Author Yearbook is nearly full. I have exactly two spots left and then I’m going to close it for this year except to those who have me create a new website for them. Monday is my deadline on these spots and then I will just reserve them for my web design clients or something along those lines. If you’ve been looking for a way to promote your books without spending a fortune, this is a good deal. You get tons of promotions as a group and an individual through this program.
The NEW 2012 Author Yearbook
The Author Yearbook has been around since 1999, when we started with a handful of authors who wanted to combine promotions and a booklet that was printed at a local PIP store. Over the years, it has morphed into a promotional power tool. A listing in the yearbook helps you reach tens of thousands of readers and includes:
- Author Pages on the Author Yearbook website
- Authors can post news to the site on their own
- Featured author rotation begins on Author Yearbook and Promo Divas (in a special box for yearbook authors)
- YouTube snippets go up on my subscriber channel (you will have to supply these to me, but I am in the process of writing a tutorial for you)
- Author Interviews are posted on RatRaceMutiny.com (one at a time, so it may take a few weeks to appear)
- Free ad in quarterly newsletter sent to 30,000 + readers (if registering by November 2nd).
- Author Yearbook website with your bio and book featured.
- We may try the chats again. They were not very successful last time, so I think I’d rather book you to chat on other sites with a following already and try to get you to plug the yearbook one time to help everyone and then do a chat of your own.
- One week banner ad on the site featuring your book and link to place where it can be ordered. In addition, the banner will be posted on CrabbyHousewife.com and RatRaceMutiny.com
- Inclusion in Promo Divas quarterly promotional events where appropriate
- Yearbook is in print and e-book format. The print version is available on Amazon and review copies sent to select librarians and booksellers. The e-book version is automatically mailed to our 30,000+ mailing list and put on the website for anyone who wants to download a free copy. This year, I am also going to try to create a Podcast of some of the key elements in the book, such as excerpts and blurbs about authors. This is a trial thing, so we’ll see how it goes and what the response is.
- Yearbook authors can participate in Promo Divas quarterly promotions, such as our upcoming “Twas the Night Before…” promotion. This will help you network and reach even more readers who might not normally see your work.
In addition, the yearbook is advertised on Facebook, GoogleAds and on select websites and reader newsletters. These vary by year, but I place ads until our budget has run out.
Now, for the very best part. I know the economy is rough for many of us right now. My own family has experienced it. It’s important to get the most bang for your buck possible as we work through these times together. So, I spent countless hours researching new publishers for the print copy, asking if that was the best price they could offer and getting discounts. I also interviewed 30 different editors to find one who would charge a reasonable rate and who would work out of my house rather than on her own time frame, so we could be assured things would be completed in a timely manner. I have found an amazing editor at far less than my last editor charged. I also have worked out deals on ads, working out exchanges where possible.
I was able to cut the cost of a spot in the yearbook by HALF.
Two years ago, the cost was $300. Now, it is only $150. For $150, you get everything listed above, your author page on AuthorYearbook.com and of course a listing in the yearbook, which includes: photo, bio, list of books and link to your website. Most ads on websites and in publications will cost you at least this much and won’t give you even half the exposure you’ll be getting through the Author Yearbook.
There is only ONE catch!
Because I want the authors involved to get the maximum exposure possible (myself included), I do limit the number of author spaces. I’ve already sold first reserve spaces to authors who were involved in the last author yearbook, so I have a handful of spots left (Only 2 Spots Left!!!). I would love to fill those last few spots and be able to focus on getting the information in for the book and making it the best version ever. Did I mention the yearbook has a theme of “Then and Now”? Lots of fun! Anyway, if you want one of these last two slots, you can register with the link below. I suspect they will go very quickly.
Please e-mail me if you have any questions at all.
