How Do I Promote my Book

Aurora House has a number of book promotion plans in place, to give your book the very best start in its life. 

 

Aurora House Book Promotion Plans

The Basic Book promotion plan is included in all our comprehensive publishing packages.

BASIC: $750 (+ 10% GST)
This promotion will run over 2 months, and includes the following:

  • Your book will be submitted to Readers’ Favorite for a review opportunity
  • Your book promoter will write a press release and, once you have approved it, they will send it out to our mailing list of newspapers and magazines.
  • If anyone is interested in interviewing you or writing a review, the book promoter will pass on those details to you.
  • Your book promoter will schedule your ebook to be free on Amazon Kindle for 5 days.
  • Leading up to your ebook sale on Amazon, your book promoter will arrange for your book to be advertised on multiple free and paid websites, such as Freebooksy and The Fussy Librarian, to increase the number of downloads you receive while your book is free.
  • Once your ebook sale is over, your book promoter will email you a report of how many downloads you received and from what countries.
  • Your book promotion information is sent to a number of book shops in Australia, which includes a Full info sheet, Press Release, Book cover and Excerpt from the book. 

Additional add on: $150 (+ 10% GST)

One-month NetGalley feature: NetGalley is a website where readers can request your book in exchange for an honest review.

INTERMEDIATE: $980 (+ 10% GST)
This promotion will run over 3 months, and includes everything on the Budget plan, but with the following extras:

  • Your press release will be sent to our mailing list of radio and TV shows, as well as our list of newspapers and magazines.
  • Instead of having 1 free ebook sale on Amazon, your book will be scheduled for 2. The first will run for 3 days, and the second will run for 2 days (the second promotion will take place at least 1 month after the first promotion).
  • Your upcoming ebook sale will be advertised on more paid websites than in the Budget.
  • Your book will be featured on NetGalley for 1 month (NetGalley is a website where readers can request your book in exchange for an honest review).

PREMIUM: $1300 (+ 10% GST)
This promotion will run over 3 months, and includes everything on the Intermediate plan, but with the following extras:

  • Your 2 ebook sales will be advertised on more paid websites than in the Intermediate.
  • You will receive a book trailer of your book (you can choose to have a blog tour instead, if you’d prefer).

CONTINUED PROMOTION: $650 (+ 10% GST)
Continued promotion can be purchased after one of the above promotion plans has run. This promotion plan will run for 3 months, and includes the following:

  • 2 free ebook sales on Amazon. The first will run for 3 days, and the second will run for 2 days (the second promotion will take place at least 1 month after the first promotion).
  • Your upcoming ebook sales will be advertised on free and paid websites.
  • Once each of your ebook sales is over, your book promoter will email you a report of how many downloads you received and from what countries.
  • An Amazon Ad Campaign will run throughout the duration of your 3-month promotion plan.

If you wish, you can ‘add on’ to the packages – if you choose a lower priced promotion package, it is possible to ‘upgrade’ by adding the balance of cost between them. We can also customise a book promotion package for you.
