What You Get:
- The Behind the Storey Online Book-Signing Event: Join up to three fellow authors for an hour-long online event. Similar to a live webinar, guests will be able to log in and interact directly with you in real time. A host will monitor the event, asking prepared questions, fostering discussion and moderating questions and comments from guests. As a featured author, you will have your own virtual book-signing display that highlights your author bio and information about your book for all participating guests to see. We will help promote your event in an effort to attract the most new readers possible. Up to 200 people may register for the event on a first-come, first-served basis. Each attendee will receive a free digital BookStub, "signed" by you, the author.
- 100 BookStubs: Play to the industry’s evolution, and give today’s readers what they want: an e-book. With these small stylish cards — perfect for handing out at a moment’s notice or at planned promotional events — you can easily give interested readers access to a free download of your title. Your BookStubs will be custom-designed to showcase your book’s cover* and will provide readers with a URL and QR code that they can use to claim one free copy of your e-book at their convenience. As these pocket-sized cards pass from the author’s hand to their new reader’s hands, BookStubs transform from a unique marketing tool into a free e-book. Learn More »
* BookStubs will be created using existing design elements from the cover of your book. All efforts will be made to ensure the closest match possible to the colour palette used on the cover of your book. Due to the nature of printing on different materials (i.e. paper versus plastic) as well as other variables, there may be some variation in colour and appearance between the printed book cover and the reproduction on the card. Based on these factors, requests for colour adjustment will not be entertained.
