There’s something so special about reading a debut novel and discovering an author’s unique voice for the first time. And sometimes, you’re so blown away by the initial read that you realize you can’t wait to see what else the author has in store! Such is the case with author Jamila Minnicks and her new novel, Moonrise over New Jessup. We were thrilled to help Algonquin Books reach literary enthusiasts everywhere to promote this powerhouse of a debut!

AdBiblio Case Study: Tales of a Seventh Grade Lizard Boy from Candlewick
Oh, middle school. What an incredibly awkward time. Especially if you happen to be a….lizard boy! We loved helping Candlewick spread the word about Tales of a Seventh Grade Lizard Boy — the hilarious and heartfelt tween graphic novel from Jonathan Hill.
AdBiblio Case Study: The Luminaries from Tor Books
If there’s one thing I can truly appreciate, it’s a kick-ass female lead in a fantasy series. Katniss Everdeen. Zélie Adebola. Feyre Archeron. Just to name a few. And now I’ve got a new one to add to the list: Winnie Wednesday from The Luminaries! We were thrilled to help Tor Books promote this heart-pounding fantasy from bestselling author Susan Dennard.
AdBiblio Case Study: The Complicities from Algonquin Books
There’s the stories we tell ourselves, and then there’s the truth. And sometimes they aren’t one and the same. This is exactly what award winning author Stacey D’Erasmo’s examines in her newest novel, The Complicities. We were thrilled to help Algonquin spread the word about this haunting and compelling story that’s a perfect pick for book clubs!
AdBiblio Case Study: Something about Grandma from Candlewick Press
For so many of us, there really is something special about Grandmas. For me, it was spending hours in the kitchen making big Sunday dinners, and binge watching The Bold and the Beautiful (still true to this day!). Something about Grandma by Tania de Regil is a gorgeous picture book that celebrates that special bond between grandchild and grandmother. We loved helping Candlewick share this heartfelt book with the world, just in time for Grandparents’ Day!
AdBiblio Case Study: Surely Books Launch from ABRAMS
We love that queer representation is being brought to the forefront of comics, graphic novels, and manga. From fan favorites like Heartstopper and The Witch Boy to series like The Legend of Korra and Lumberjanes, LGBTQIA+ creators and stories are more popular than ever. When we heard about the launch of Surely Books – the new line of LGBTQIA graphic novels from ABRAMS – we jumped on board to help spread the word with AdBiblio book advertising!
AdBiblio Case Study: Fat Girls Hiking from Timber Press
Let me shout it louder for the people in the back…TRAILS NOT SCALES! Connecting with nature is something everyone should be able to do, no matter their size or ability. In Fat Girls Hiking: An Inclusive Guide to Getting Outdoors at Any Size or Ability, author Summer Michaud-Skog creates a safe space for people of all body types to find joy in the outdoors. We were thrilled to promote such an empowering and inclusive book!
AdBiblio Case Study: Out of His League from Wattpad Books
The year was 2001. The movie: Summer Catch. I think I watched it 4 or 5 times that year going into high school. Flash forward to 2005, and I couldn’t get enough of the movie Fever Pitch. So it all adds up to why I was so excited about promoting a baseball romance! We loved helping Wattpad Books use AdBiblio book advertising to promote Caroline Richardson’s super fun and steamy novel, Out of His League.
AdBiblio Case Study: The Aquanaut from Scholastic
Children’s graphic novels and comics are having a big moment, and we’re here for it! It thrills us that authors like Dan Santat are getting even the most reluctant young readers excited about books. We loved using our targeted book advertising to help Scholastic reach parents, librarians and more for Santat’s adventurous new graphic novel The Aquanaut!
AdBiblio Case Study: The Light in Hidden Places & Bluebird from Scholastic
I, like so many, am a complete sucker for a WWII era book. Every story of bravery and courage, especially when deeply researched and based on real historical events, is a harrowing yet uplifting reminder of the extraordinary heroes that have come before us. NY Times bestselling author Sharon Cameron is fantastic at writing such stories, like in her YA novels The Light in Hidden Places and Bluebird. We loved helping Scholastic use targeted book advertising to spread the word about these inspiring reads!
