Details Of Monthly Promotions
With all of our monthly promotions listed below, your book has the potential of being seen by 29K + readers! Previous newsletters can be viewed here.
2: £5 First Chapter Spotlight
What better way to find new readers than to offer them a few chapters to read. If they like the book they will download the book and you get book sales.
Give at least 5 chapters if not more to hook them in ~ up to a point early in your story where you believe they will not be able to put the book down and will rush over to Amazon to download the book to see what happens next. Talk about being caught, hook, line and sinker.
From as little as £5 you'll be growing your mailing list with new reader subscribers because you provide a link on your website or via your emailing provider. Like the other promotions mentioned above, this is very easily done in MailChimp and you can even set up an automated 'welcome' message when they sign up to get your free chapters, which gives them the download link. Your free chapters will be featured in our next newsletter after you make the booking.
You may want to consider a Bronze Membership as Book Hub offers you the chance to promote your first few chapters in each of our monthly newsletters with this membership.

4: £15 Review Requests
Each month we send a list of books looking for reviews to our readers. Readers are asked to apply to review the books directly from the author's website or mailing list provider, such as MailChimp.
This gives the author new readers and the chance to engage with these readers in future either by asking their new readers to review more books or telling them about new books being published. Of course, the author also gets a review from the reader.
We ask the reader to review within 30 days of receiving the book and our review response rates are extremely high. This link below shows author's who have used the review request service and how pleased they are with the results.
Our readers love fiction so any fiction review requests tends to perform significantly better than nonfiction. Your offer can link to a page on your website or to directly to your mailing list, (your choice). Either way, you get the email address of everyone who signs up to review your book. Your offer should conform to Amazon's current book review policies, find our details here.
You may want to consider a Bronze Membership
