THE CLOCK IS TICKING…DON’T’ MISS THIS
The exciting LA Times Festival of Books is coming up in April. Last year this event was attended by nearly 130,000 people. In addition to selling books, our team handed out over 50,000 pieces of marketing material to attendees. This year, BFB is putting together a special catalogue to promote the work of self published authors from across the country. If you want your book or books listed in this year’s marketing, e-mail us at email@example.com to sign up.
For only $95. your listing includes a full color cover image, book bio and links or locations where your book can be purchased (including e-books.) Do you have more than one title? Add additional titles for only $25. each. This catalogue will also be included in our 2nd quarter direct mail to indie stores.
The deadline to sign up is March 15th. This is a one-time offer, but watch our website for other exciting marketing opportunities for self published authors. (Fees and artwork must be received by 3/15 to be included)
Brass Frog Bookworks is Hoppin’ – Now Offering National Marketing to Self-Published Authors
It’s only February and BFB already has five titles in the pipeline. This is going to be a defining year in the publishing industry as the e-market reaches the top of its bubble and more and more retailers leave out the middleman and buy direct from producers. This is an opportunity we have been waiting for! Over the past year we have studied the market trends and based on the results of those studies we have been building the infrastructure for a massive national marketing outreach that will include e-marketing, direct mail, book shows, reviews, independent bookstore placements and web sales. This program will be open to self published authors all across the country – not just BFB published authors. We welcome authors needing affordable assistance with marketing their work. Our innovative program helps self published authors reach far beyond anything previously available.
Get a return on your investment and get hoppin’ with Brass Frog Bookworks, a leader in Independent publishing and marketing services. Watch for our upcoming program fact sheet, or you can contact us by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to receive free, no obligation information about the new marketing program.
BFB Raises the Bar
Brass Frog Bookworks has become a member of the prestigious Association of American Publishers. This relationship provides access to a myriad of resources and market information that will directly benefit our clients. In addition, BFB has the opportunity to participate on national and regional committees that deal with everything from libraries to legislation that impacts publishing and copyright law. BFB is excited to start 2012 by taking this big leap.
During the month of March, Brass Frog Bookworks put out a challenge to high school students all around Mesa County to participate in a creative writing essay contest. The entries are in and the scores tallied! The winners were announced and the monetary awards, provided by Bank of Colorado, were handed out at a special reception to be held at the Bookcliff Country Club on Saturday, April 17th.
Parents, teachers, students, representatives from School District 51 and Western Colorado Community College joined the contest sponsors, Bank of Colorado and Brass Frog Bookworks, to meet and honor the winners. Phil Castle, editor at the Grand Valley Business Times was the keynote speaker.
Winners included: Danielle C. Riggs (1st place) from Fruita High School with her essay entitled The Black Heart; Sara Cooper, also of Fruita (2nd place) with Elfintide; and Jonathan Conners from Central High (3rd place) with Dream Sequence. An honorable mention was given to Tanner Willms also of Central for his story, The Box.
Brass Frog intends to grow this event and offer a writers’ boot camp for students next year.
