Publicious Book Marketing

As well as writing and publishing my own books for over twenty-years, I've been very fortunate to have worked with hundreds of writers, just like you, who have chosen the self-publishing path. Inevitably, the questions most asked are: 'Will you market my book?' or 'How do I market my book?' In answer to the first question, below you'll find the services and products we have to offer as well as details of our exciting new book The Publicious Marketing Tool Kit.

For the second question, the answer isn't as cut and dried as most newbie authors would like it to be. You see each book is different, a different product if you like. So too is each author. Each type of book will require different strategies for marketing.

There's no magic bullet or system that will market your book for you. At the end of the day it will be down to you, the self-published author, to take control of your marketing. This doesn't mean you can't seek help and assistance when required. And there's also a variety of tools that are available for you to reach your goal while managing to stay in control of your campaign.

Having said all of this, here are a few of the services we have available which are also included in some of our publishing packages:

  • ISBN supply and registrations. Not only will we open an account with the Thorpe and Bowker (the Australian ISBN agency) in your name, but we will also lodge all of your metadata and upload the necessary files required to ensure that your registration is complete and correct - included in Packages 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5

Book/Author promotion tools:

The Tiger Chase Poster

Book Signing Poster

Supplying in advance a professional poster to the venues where you have book signings or workshops etc, scheduled is a great way of advertising your event and creating interest during the days leading up to it. You'll notice the blank rectangle at the bottom of the sample on the left, this is optional but is a good idea for adding the time and date of the event with a marker by hand. Just let us know if you don't require this option.

We'll create the design using the images of your choice (3D book cover perhaps) and supply it to you as a printable PDF that can you can take to your local copy shop, printers or Office Works etc, where you can print as many copies as you like whenever you need them. This will save you having to purchase large quantities and have them lying around.

Read Our Testimonials

I am very grateful and honoured to have found Publicious. As a first time author, there was SO MUCH to learn, figure out and understand. I know that without the help and support of the Publicious team, I would not have achieved my dream. I contacted a few places last year regarding publishing, but I connected only with Andy, and that's why I chose to engage his services. It turned out to be an exceptional choice, pat myself on the back for that :-)

I asked media personality Ray Weeks about 'Publico'. He thought I was talking about 'Publicious' and said he had heard good reports. That's how I came to meet Andy McDermott. The spectacular cover design was a Publicious masterpiece, my sketches had been redrawn to illustration quality and my photographs inserted. Blitz was launched in good time for the February 19th 2012 Bombing of Darwin Day celebrations.
