Press Release Services For Authors
Due to staffing constraints with the COVID-19 shelter-in-place orders, we are temporarily not offering Press Release services.
Press releases are primarily targeted at journalists, but many sites use them for content either automatically or on a curated basis. A well-written press release may end up with additional press coverage, or just the automatic coverage from the release being posted on hundreds of media sites.
If you’ve had a 4 or 5 star review from one of the City Book Review publications, we’ll deduct $50 off the price of the press release promoting your review. For an discounted fee, City Book Review will send out a press release announcing your review from each of the publications. The press release will contain a summary of the review, a pull quote from the review and a link to the author’s web page and/or the review of the book.
“We’re happy to start adding in this new critical service for authors to help them break through the crowd and get more attention to their work”, said City Book Review publisher Heidi Komlofske-Rojek.
With your press release coming from the San Francisco or Manhattan Book Review, you’ll get extra authority in your news release, and we’ll post your release on our site as well.
