If you’re an author, you’re probably always looking for ways to get your books the attention they deserve. Emailing book bloggers, book clubs, online reading groups, etc. is an excellent way to drum up interest in your books. However, before you even consider approaching busy book bloggers and other reading groups you should have a clear and concise email message prepared. It’s important to be professional when asking for book reviews so plan what you will say ahead of time.
As a book blogger, book marketer and author promoter I’m often surprised at the lack of information presented in an initial email contact. It’s critical that authors make things as convenient and easy as possible for potential reviewers to decide whether or not to accept your book for review. Including as much information about who you are, what your book is about and where it can be purchased can mean the difference between enticing a book blogger to read and review your book or simply deleting your email.
An informational book media kit, kept on hand, will make things tremendously simple for authors as well as book bloggers. Each time you reach out to a potential contact you can simply attach your media kit zip file.
