AdBiblio Case Study: Hot and Badgered from Kensington Books

With a title like Hot and Badgered, we knew this was going to be a fun campaign. Then we watched the book trailer, and we REALLY knew this was going to be a whole lot of fun! Hot and Badgered is part of a hot and quirky new series by Shelly Laurenston, the NY Times bestselling author of many paranormal romance titles, including Wolf with Benefits, Bear Meets Girl, and the Magnus Pack series. We’ve helped promote some of these titles in the past, but this was the first time we’d be promoting one of her book trailers!

Reach passionate summer readers!

When it comes to vacation reading, I always think of my best friend Kristina who intensely searched a Miami Walgreens at 9pm for the hottest romance books. She was on the hunt for a whole bunch of steamy novels to devour over our 4 day vacation. I’m pretty sure she bought around 5 books, so I’d say the trip was a total success. The Bastard Billionaire series by Jessica Lemmon became her obsession. She still talks about it.

AdBiblio Case Study: History is All You Left Me from Soho Teen

Here’s what Nicola Yoon, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Everything, Everything, has to say about Adam Silvera’s History is All You Left Me “This book will make you cry, think, and then cry some more.”

Hmm…a YA book that will make you cry and cry? SIGN. ME. UP. I’m a huge fan of tearing up with a good YA read, especially those that take me back to my extreme emotions of my teenage years. So when Soho Teen came to us looking to target this emotional teen read from Silvera, I was excited to meet with the team to plan an awesome campaign.

BEA Proximity Targeting: The Holy Grail

Book Expo America. 


It’s certainly on all our minds. Some might call it an absolute bibliophile’s dream. Others might call it five grueling days of just a smidgen of stress (smidgen’s a word, right?) Either way, it’s almost here. And as we all know, it’s the perfect opportunity to connect with just about everyone in the book industry world, from readers to authors to librarians, booksellers, and publishers. It’s the #1 book event in America. Which begs the question…in the chaos of the biggest and best book event, how will you make sure you stand out?

AdBiblio Case Study: HMH Call Me Zebra

In describing the novel Call Me Zebra, The Millions says “This is a miss your stop on the subway and ignore your to-do list kind of book.” Now I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love when a book makes me stay in my bed during an entire Saturday. And Call Me Zebra is no exception. It’s a book that will draw you in and not let go, until you HAVE to put it down to go to the bathroom. We were so excited to be a part of helping HMH to promote this gorgeous and addicting new work of fiction!

AdBiblio Case Study: Candlewick Knightology

When I was in sixth grade, I was a “victim of the plague” at my middle school medieval festival. It is, to this day, my best performance. I LOVED the medieval time period as a kid, but, you know, more-so the knights, princesses and castles rather than the actual plague. When Candlewick reached out for help in promoting Knightology, I was reminded just how much my twelve year old self would love this book!
