BUZZING ABOUT BOOKS NEWSLETTER
Buzzing About Books provides an opportunity for authors and publishers to introduce new and forthcoming books to over 8,000 book club members, along with visitors of bookclubcookbook.com.
Each issue of Buzzing About Books features up to 5 books. Authors can include a brief letter to readers, book description, reviews, and links, and give away 5-20 books to readers.
The featured book, along with a destination link, is also promoted on the Home page and Buzzing About Books page of our website for one month. Each Buzzing About Books newsletter will also be posted on our website.
If you combine Buzzing About Books with another promotion, including Book Club Buzz, or display advertising with Author Recipe Page, you’ll receive a 10% discount on the second promotion.
Those who have purchased a Buzzing About Books promotion will receive a $50 discount off the price of an Author Recipe Page.
BOOK CLUB BUZZ GIVEAWAY CONTEST
Through the Book Club Buzz, authors and publishers can quickly reach 8,000 book club members across the country through a dedicated direct email blast.
The Book Club Buzz gives multiple book club members the chance to win copies of a book – and spread the word to fellow readers and book club members. Each author featured in the Book Club Buzz receives a permanent Author Recipe Page and the opportunity to participate in our Guest Author Blog.
Each contest is promoted through a dedicated email announcement, sent to over 8,000 book club members, featuring a photo of the book cover with links to the author’s website, blog and recipe page, and a brief synopsis of the book along with short review quotes.
The book cover is also featured on the Home and Contest pages of bookclubcookbook.com for one month, and attracts regular online visitors of bookclubcookbook.com.
The author or publisher selects the number of books (50 or 75) to be given away, and sends the books directly to each of the winning book club members. The books may be paperbacks, hardcovers, or review copies. All names and addresses of book club members are the property of bookclubcookbook.com and may not be used for other solicitations.
Please note that our readers and subscribers enjoy books with food themes as well as cookbooks, but the featured books do not need to have a culinary tie-in. We enjoy promoting the best fiction and non-fiction titles for book clubs. We’re happy to help authors develop recipes to accompany their promotions.
The contest is promoted in Book Bytes, our quarterly e-newsletter, and winners are announced on our website, accompanied by a book cover photo and website link.
