Do you want to boost your book’s visibility and potentially increase your sales for the holidays? Or, maybe you have an award-winning title you want to promote? Story Monsters LLC invites you to join other authors to be part of our “12 Days of Book-a-mas” National Marketing Campaign Co-op.
25% of books purchased each year are bought as gifts. ‘Tis always the season to give books, but according to Google Trends, searches relating to “gifts” in the United States dramatically rises from early-mid November through Christmas Day, which makes the holidays the perfect opportunity for authors and publishers to expand their marketing strategies for new and older titles.
Our co-op allows you to maximize your efforts without breaking the bank! And, you don’t have to be a children’s author to participate—we are accepting titles for grown-ups, too!
All materials must be received ON OR BEFORE Thursday, October 10, 2019.
