What Is a Book Press Release?
Back in the day when the news was only printed in newspapers, editors and writers had a certain amount of space they could fit a story. However, with the internet, that is not true.
Writers and journalists are always looking for good story opportunities to post on their publication’s website – no matter the size or amount. In many cases, any legitimate story is better than no story.
So what does all this mean for you as an author?
Simply put, if you are able to package information about your book into a format which grabs a journalist’s attention, make it so they don’t have to put much work into your article to publish it, and it seems like it would be of interest to their audience, then Bingo! You’ve won the holy grail of free publicity.
And in some cases, as we’ll discuss later, there are new agency sub-affiliates that will accept just about anything – so long as it’s a properly formatted press release.
