Confession time: I have a slight obsession with Aaron Blabey. I mean, just check out some of his ridiculously adorable characters below. Not to mention his hysterical rhymes and wacky drawings are the best way to make bedtime reading so fun! So, I was thrilled when Scholastic came to us for help in promoting several of his books, including Piranhas Don’t Eat Bananas!
Several years ago my Dad got me into Foyle’s War, and so began my slight obsession with British detectives. I’ve watch them all: Broadchurch, Luther, Sherlock, and even dabbled in Midsomer Murders (google it.) So, I was thrilled when Soho Press came to us for help in spreading the word about British mystery and thriller novelist Mick Herron. He’s gaining popularity here in the States, and we loved helping promote Joe Country –the sixth book in his Slough House series!
While browsing Bustle the other day, I came across this article: 8 Reasons to Give the Gift of Poetry This Season. As it points out, there’s so many reasons to love poetry: it’s timeless, deeply personal, offers perspective – and so much more! I’ve long been a fan of poetry, even if I grapple with the meaning behind some of them (but I guess that’s part of the fun!). So, I was super thrilled when Simon & Schuster came to us to help promote the 2018 edition of The Best American Poetry.
If there’s one bromance that has everyone talking, it’s between former President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden. So much so that the POTUS bromance has come to be known as a “BROTUS”. And now – the duo have come together not just as our favorite memes, but to solve mysteries! Move over Watson and Holmes, Hope Never Dies: An Obama-Biden Mystery is now on bookshelves. Working with Quirk Books to help them promote this fun & humorous thriller has been nothing short of an absolute blast!
Peg + Cat are back for another adventure! These adorably fun books about a young girl and her talking cat (spoiler alert) are based on the children’s book The Chicken Problem, which was published in 2012 by Billy Aronson and Jennifer Oxley. Since then, the series has become an Emmy Award-winning animated TV series. We were really excited to help Candlewick spread the word about the most recent book in the series, Peg + Cat: The Eid al-Adha Adventure!
If you’re deciding whether or not to read An American Marriage by Tayari Jones, just ask Oprah. In addition to being chosen as a Book Club 2018 pick by the Queen reader herself, An American Marriage is a New York Times Instant Bestseller and holds rave reviews from widespread publications including People, The Atlantic and Nylon. Not to mention Oprah is planning on turning it into a movie! When we first got our hands on Tayari Jones’s debut, we knew (like Oprah) that it was something special, so we were beyond excited when Algonquin asked for help in keeping the excitement alive for this book!
Food, glorious food! We were incredibly excited to work with S&S on promoting Elettra Weidemann’s new cookbook, Impatient Foodie. As a busy millennial herself, she asks in her cookbook, “Why did good food always go hand-in-hand with slowing down? Wasn’t there a way to have slow, sustainable, delicious food without the ‘slow’?”Impatient Foodie helps busy bees to find the time to put the best healthy weeknight dinners on the table!
Book advertising is, of course, AdBibio’s forte. We pride ourselves on being the best – and only – programmatic ad solution for book publishers and authors. But when a publisher like Candlewick wants to advertise a non-book product, like a podcast, we’re always excited to take on a new challenge!
AdBiblio thrives on integrating ourselves with the digital trends of the future. Which is why we’re excited to announce AdBiblio Native Ads! Native advertising mimics the style and format of organic posts on websites, letting your book ad blend in seamlessly with the content around it. We tapped into this native technology to help Kensington continue to get the word out about Lisa Jackson’s thrilling new novel, You Will Pay!
