Arlington, Virginia – Authors now have a new marketing tool that makes it easy and affordable to reach book lovers on the web. ForBookLoversOnly.com combines a well-organized, Amazon-style website with its own internet TV show where viewers get to know authors and their books. The TV show, Between the Covers for Book Lovers and the website are marketed through popular social networks and online ads directed at people who enjoy reading.
The system is unique because authors pay a small annual fee ($97 per year at the time of launch) to promote their books on the site and keep all sales proceeds. They can also choose upgraded packages allowing them to be featured both in their very own two-minute video promo piece and on the internet TV show in an interview published to YouTube and other online video sites. A link to the video is also included in their book listing.
“I created this program to provide authors with a simple, effective and affordable way to reach readers,” says Robert Brown, a former practicing attorney with a passion for books. “No other company which markets books has our unique combination of social media, multi-media and affordability.”
“We are very excited that Rob has formed an alliance with us to produce his TV show on our internet TV network,” says Glenn Garnes, founder of Village Connector Media. “Our company will be supporting this project by distributing the Between the Covers TV interviews to viewers across the United States on the ROKU.com network, YouTube, Vimeo and other popular video sites.”
“This social media marketing and communications system will be of particular interest to self-published authors who have limited resources to promote their books,” Brown said. “There are scarce opportunities for authors on the web to be personally interviewed about their books. Even if there is a bookseller currently online who interviews authors, the author selection process is extremely confusing and largely unavailable for writers whose last name isn’t Grisham or Evanovich.”
Brown has created two special opportunities for the first 100 authors interested in being early adopters. The first opportunity includes a two-years-for-the-price-of-one listing for a single book or listing up to five books for one year – both at $97. He is also offering 20% off of the price of the two-minute video promo and the Between the Covers TV interview. Brown says the year will begin to run on the official launch of the program to the public, which he has scheduled for May 1st, 2015.
