I applied for a book manager position for Booktrope Publishing. I love helping other authors promote their novels and have been doing so since I set up my blog. I post author interviews, guest posts, writing tips and review books.
I wanted to get even more involved in the promotional and marketing aspect, and not only help others, but learn new things myself.
I was thrilled when I was accepted! And I have four authors under my wing to date – two contemporary fiction authors, and two thriller / mystery authors. I am on hand to give them advice daily, create book teasers for them, marketing strategy plans, help with their cover design ideas, organise book reviews, blog tours, and ensuring their book is promoted as best as possible.
It’s great, but really hard work! I spend hours researching, contacting people and discussing things with my authors. But it’s rewarding, my authors are great, and Booktrope are really good to work with!
Below are my marketing manuals, and the folder I’ve created to store all my authors cases, and writing/promotional stuff.
Booktrope are accepting submission now! If you write erotica, chick-lit, women’s fiction etc, then check out my profile and who knows, we could work together in the future! 🙂
