You can use AllAuthor for free or pay to upgrade. I was impressed at the number promotional tools you can get for free. My budget for promotion is small so anything free at this stage is very welcome. I already had my books on Goodreads but you can’t spread the net wide enough when you are marketing your books so I’m always on the hunt for possible outlets.
It’s easy to sign up to AllAuthor and you can generate mock up banners, gifs, video banners, book teasers and AllAuthor will also create tweets to promote your books. Every week you will get emailed a mock up banner for you to post on social media or however you wish. I couldn’t believe how much you could get totally free! It’s a fun and very useful site to use.
It is simple to add the URL for your books and start promoting straight away.
AllAuthor run fun things like cover competitions for you to enter (again this is free). You can add book awards, connect with other authors, add quotes.
If you have some spare marketing cash you can upgrade at a pretty affordable price. There are plenty of good reviews to encourage you.
If you are a reader it’s a great way to find new authors books and you can even buy signed copies.
I’m not being paid to promote AllAuthor, I just want to share information with you that I pick up along the way, totally impartial tips!
Let me know if it works for you or if you know of any other sites you’d like to recommend to writers and readers.
In other news I had a fabulous little crop from the balcony garden this week. At last the tomatoes ripened and I had a handful to pop in a salad. I’m excited to see that it won’t be too long before I have some red hot chilli peppers to enjoy too. The weather has turned wet so I’m stuck inside writing this week. Fingers crossed I’ll be out working on the balcony again next week…
