Author Marketing Services Overview

Maybe you recently published a book or decided to get some help increasing sales with marketing and publicizing a book you put out quite some time ago. Or maybe you decided that a professionally designed book cover was actually a good idea when you first created yours.

If you’re new to the self-publishing game, you’ll be required to wear several hats as you market and distribute your book. Perhaps some of you didn’t realize just how many pieces there are to the publishing puzzle. We liken it to Dorothy peeling back the curtain to discover the Wizard of Oz manipulating all those levers and buttons. That’s what a traditional publisher is typically doing for you. Perhaps you’ve gone with a small publisher, and you’re expected to wear some of those hats yourself.

We’ve broken down the publishing process, so you know what to expect. Perhaps you want to wear ALL of these hats, but if you decide that some of these tasks are a bit out of your league, it’s okay to lean on us for help. Tap into our combined 50 years of book marketing, publishing, and retail experience.


You’ll find the array of author services we offer up there ^^ in our menu under Author Marketing Services.


“I turned to City Book Review to help me focus on the marketing of my recently launched self-published book. My main goal was to get unstuck and develop a solid marketing plan to help me move forward. Heidi and Ross provided me with support, focus and the objectivity I needed to set priorities and create a plan. They are full of wonderful, creative and thoughtful ideas. I highly recommend City Book Review for book marketing strategies and support.”
