Promotional Calendar

Thank you for your interest in promotions at Romancing the Book.

We are currently booking promotions for 2018.

*** If you request a promotion and do not get a reply from Jen within 48 hours,  please email her at promo.bookblog AT gmail.com to follow up.  *** 

As of November 2017, here are our new promotion guidelines:

  • We will not host guests on the weekends (no Saturday and Sunday promotions with the exception during some of our special events).
    • Due to the shear number of requests that we get, we will only host an author if they did NOT guest with us in 2017.
  • We only post one promotion a day.  There will be very few exceptions to this rule (mostly dealing with an accidental overbooking).
  • We expect that once a spot is scheduled that you will have all materials for the post to be returned no later than one (1) week before your date.  Do not expect us to send a reminder, although one *may* come.
    • Promotions will post no later than 6:00 am (Eastern) and will be the top posts that day.  Part of our service is to advertise your visit on Facebook & Twitter.  We expect you to do the same.
      • We do provide the post’s link at least the night before it goes live for your convenience.
    • We strongly suggest that guests stop by at some point during their promotion to respond to comments left by our readers.  It makes for a more rewarding visit for everyone.
  • We do NOT require a giveaway during promotions.  If you are looking for reader participation, we would recommend one.  However, you will be responsible for setting it up and choosing a winner.
  • We DO require a review for all promotions.
    • If you book your date early enough, we may be interested in reviewing some of your backlist as well, particularly if the book you want to promote is part of a series.

If you agree to these guidelines and would like to talk about scheduling a visit to RtB, please consult the calendar below to pick a few possible dates and then fill out the form at the end of the page.  You should receive a response within 48 hours.  If you do not receive a response, please email Jen at promo.bookblog AT gmail.com.

Please note, this calendar is searchable by using the arrows to advance to future months.

 

Promotional Request

If you would like to request a promotion with us, please fill out this form.
  • This is the name we will place on our calendar.
  • If this is different from the author's name (ie you are an assistant, publisher or you use a pen name)... who will I be emailing?
  • How are we to contact you?
  • Please provide a website so we can learn more about the author and their writing.
  • What book would we be promoting? Please provide the blurb and genre.
  • Please note that we no longer offer just a spotlight option, as this is generally not original content, which we require at RtB.
  • This would be your preference in open date on our calendar. Please refer to the calendar on this page and choose a date that is open.
  • In case someone has beaten you to your first choice, please give us a back up date from our calendar.
  • As of September 2014, all promotions will require a review of the book we are promoting. Please attach a PDF copy for review. If a review copy is not available at this time, please tell us when it will be in the comment section.
    Accepted file types: pdf.
  • Is there anything else we to know or to consider? Please also use this place to tell us when review copies will be available, if they aren't already.
  • We've been having problems with the form not always saving submissions (we're trying to figure out why). If the submission is saved, you will get an email confirmation from RtB, to the address you filled in the form, that contains all the information you submitted. If you don't immediately receive this confirmation, please email promo.bookblog@gmail.com with the information from the form to book your promotion.
