~~~~~~~~~~~ TNBBC Publicity ~~~~~~~~~~
In 2013, TNBBC began dipping its toes into the world of book marketing and publicity and discovered that we like it!
Publicity opportunities include:
* Blog tours - your choice of one or two week tour stops
* Individualized book pitches to well-researched bloggers, literary journals, and niche websites that match the style and genre of your book
* Final proof editing - to save you from the embarrassment of missing commas and misspelled or missing words - before your book hits the printers
*Social Media support - for those who are social media newbies or for those who are just looking to build a better, stronger brand, I can point you in the right direction!
Prices vary. I reserve the right to decline your book if I do not feel I can promote it effectively.
Here's what some of the authors I've worked with have to say:
"It's a rare treat for a writer to find someone so passionate about spreading the word about books, and when Lori's in your corner you know people are going to hear about your work. It's been an honor to have her in my corner as a reader, a supporter, and for her grassroots publicity efforts. Every writer needs Lori Hettler on their side." - Ryan W Bradley, author of Code For Failure and The Waiting Tide, among others
"Lori set up a blog tour for my independently released fantasy novel The Gamble of the Godless, through which I was able to connect with bloggers, reviewers and readers both here in the US and worldwide, in places as far-flung as Australia and Israel. I gave interviews, wrote guest blog posts, and received many reviews. I have no doubt that many if not most of the sales for that book were generated from that tour and the ensuing word-of-mouth ripples it engendered. Closer to home, Lori single-handedly set up book launches for my novel An Age of Madness in New York City, at the KGB Lit Bar in Manhattan and Book Thug Nation in Brooklyn. Lori is the kind of person you want in your corner: tireless, upbeat, well-connected and relentlessly enthusiastic." - David Maine, author of An Age of Madness, and The Gamble of the Godless, among others
"As the pub date approached for my debut novel, Beatitude, I found myself faced with a triple promotional challenge: I was a first-time author, my novel was literary fiction and I was published by a small independent press (Rebel Satori). How to attract attention? My research for independent-literature aficionados brought me to Lori and TNBBC. Several emails later, Lori agreed to read Beatitude. Within a month, she wrote a nuanced and insightful review and then asked if I would be interested in doing an author blog tour. Within a few days the tour was in place: Lori had lined up six smart and talented fellow indie-lit lovers who agreed to review Beatitude, conduct author interviews and publish author-written articles and photography about the book. The tour remains one of the highlights of my author experiences. Lori is knowledgeable, enthusiastic, organized and well connected. What more could you ask?" -Larry Closs, author of Beatitude
"Lori Hettler organized a two-week blog tour for my novel "Fight Song," and her diligence and work ethic exceeded my expectations. I was able to talk directly to a wide array of book lovers and find a bigger audience. Indie publishing is a grass roots phenomenon, and in that spirit, Lori's dedication, zeal, and vivacity were a productive pleasure to work with." - Joshua Mohr, author of All This Life, and Fight Song, among others
"Lori was an incredible resource for me in terms of both line-editing and promoting my short story collection Romance for Delinquents. She not only aided in finding errors which other editors had missed, but also enabled my book to find a wealth of new readers by selecting it for The Next Best Book Club and organizing a week-long discussion between myself and readers. I can't stress enough what a valuable resource she has been for me, and would recommend her services to any author." - Michael Wayne Hampton, author of Romance for Delinquents and Roller Girls Love Bobby Knight
"Lori Hettler is not only the Queen of Goodreads, but she’s also a smart and savvy reader of contemporary literature. She’s built an amazing network through her years of grassroots advocacy, and she knows how to connect with readers who care about great books." - David Schneiderman, author of[SIC], among others
