 Marketing Options & Pricing 

When you publish with Palmetto Publishing, we will set up a 30-minute call with our dedicated marketing team to discuss our strategy for your book. We tailor each book marketing service to your goals, your genre, and your skill level. Whether you’re starting from scratch or refining your current efforts, our winning strategy will be guided by us while driven by the author. 

 Marketing Copy 

Our copy editors will create an attention-grabbing book description, back cover text, and professional author biography. We believe these are some of your marketing toolbox’s essential pieces because a sample of the story the person writing is often enough for a reader to give a new book a try. 

We provide you with five keywords to help optimize your book’s searchability and categorization. Optimization promotes your book on search engines and within book circles. Once you understand your potential readers’ age group and demographic, you can use the most efficient techniques for reaching your ideal audience.

 Press Release 

Why do you need a press release? Being newsworthy and connecting your book to real-life issues and current news events will automatically sell your expertise in specific areas and label you as a credible source. If editors and other writers need to tell stories and make references, connecting your story to recent or popular events helps your chances of success significantly. 

Our marketing professionals will compose a press release for you to send to various media outlets and for your use in all marketing and publicity efforts. ​With this, we build a list of media contacts from blog owners, journalists, and editors at the local regional, and national-level outlets for things like a book review, author interview, or other media feature!

 Press Release Distribution 

When your book is published, a targeted press release campaign is a very effective way to promote your book, increase your work’s visibility, and work your way up as you begin to earn coverage. We take care of the entire process needed to start this campaign.

*Media coverage is not guaranteed

 Author Website 

A dedicated author website is ideal for your readers, reviewers, editors, and producers to find out more about you. Your site should have your bio, links to your blog, social media, media coverage, reviews, and any scheduled appearances. 

The website must be well designed and use responsive web design to make it navigable on mobile devices. That’s why our design team will work with you every step of the way to create a custom website for you and your published works.

 Marketing Package 

Authors need to build a platform to pair with actionable book marketing techniques to drive your book’s awareness. It’s exciting to publish your book and go on book tours and book signings, but just as important is keeping up a presence on social media and responding to readers of your work.

  • Press release distribution
  • Marketing copy
