  • The advertising cost includes promotion on our feed, on Twitter, Facebook, and GoodReads, as well as a permanent page on this website. When you advertise with us, we also review your book. Your cover will link to the review, which will contain a sales link and/or link to your website. The book review will be an unbiased review, written by a professional book reviewer. It is not a paid review, so there is no extra charge for this service.
