I’ve subscribed to the BookBub.com email for about four years garnering my fair share of free and discounted books. However, I had no idea that as an author you could join their database by adding your books for other members to discover. The site itself isn’t the most friendly but if you can get past that there are some advantages to joining.
AuthorityPub shares how to Join BookBub which then gives you the opportunity to purchase an ad with them:
How to apply:
Go to BookBub.com and scroll down to the bottom of the homepage.
Click on “Submit New Deal” under the Publishers and Authors column on the footer.
You can also create a BookBub author page. (This option pulls your info from Amazon.)
Fill out the form, including the price drop, dates, and Amazon links.
Add your comments (highly recommended).
They should email you back within two to three days to let you know if your book got accepted or not.
Confirm the date and schedule your promo right then and there.
It is important that you make sure that whatever book you’re pitching is available for a promo on Amazon.
They will remind you two days and one day before your BookBub promo runs.
I couldn’t afford to place an ad but I did get my books added into their database. Better yet, once you have joined their site, you can “recommend” books to other readers/authors.
If you are a book reviewer, this is an additional place where you can share your reviews in addition to Amazon and GoodReads. Take the extra step and make your reviews count! <3
