All advertisements will appear in the right hand sidebar, unless a header or footer ad is purchased.

  • We do not offer a graphic design service. Unless you provide us with coding for your ad, we will use a book cover with a link to (or another site if it is not available at Amazon).
  • If you’d like for the graphic to link to somewhere other than Amazon, let me know when placing your order.
  • If you’re ordering a skyscraper, header or footer banner, you have to provide the image/coding.
  • We will “bill” you via Paypal.
  • Payment is due before the Sunday the ad is to appear on the blog.
  • Failure to pay will postpone the ad until payment is received.
  • If you want the discount for a month long advertisement, you must pay for the month in advance. If you decide to pull the ad before the month is over, you will not be refunded. However, if we decide to take down the ad, you will receive a prorated refund.
  • If you have seen mentions of a discount on social media sites, please mention them in the form below to receive the discount. Let us know what the discount is for, where you saw it and when for validation.
  • Upon request, if the ad is linked to Amazon, we can provide click-thru stats.
