The trend of turning books into shows and movies is booming, and I’m always looking to “read it before I stream it.” With years of experience promoting books turned to media (check out our post on The Shapes Trilogy), we were thrilled to help Sourcebook reach Netflix streamers for My Life with the Walter Boys by Ali Novak!
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!
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.
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!
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!
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.
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!
Take a gorgeous beach locale, toss in some family drama with a bit of romance and betrayal, and you’ve got yourself the perfect vacation read. The Great Godden by bestselling, award-winning author Meg Rosoff checks all the boxes. AdBiblio online advertising helped Candlewick spread the word about this “taut page-turner” (People).
