Have any of you used services like Book Bub, Book Gorilla, Early Bird, eReaderIQ, or The Fussy Librarian to promote your work? I know BookBub is pricey, and while it might be worth it, it’s not in my budget. The Fussy Librarian has a circulation of 75,000 readers, over 60,000 signed up for notices in my genre. You can get a one-time mention for $9 per book. That’s something I can afford, and submitting a book for approval was a very easy task. So, I’ve done it. I’ll let you know how it works, what the display looks like when the email with my listing comes around, and whether or not I see an increase in sales afterward. I figured for $18, it was worth a shot, but we’ll see how it goes.
