It’s hard to market a book by yourself.
That’s why I’m offering cross-promotions for sapphic fiction authors on the Sapphic Quill. Teaming up with fellow authors allows you to tap into the platforms your colleagues have already built. It increases your visibility and introduces your book to more readers than you could reach on your own.
Requirements for participating in a cross-promotion
For most promotions, any author of sapphic fiction can participate, no matter if they’re an indie author or traditionally published. There’s only one requirement: Every author has to help promote the event.
Cross-promotions only work if everyone helps to spread the word. Authors who don’t promote won’t be invited back because it’s not fair to the other participating authors.
How to cross-promote
I’ve put together a blog post with my top 5 tips for successful cross-promotions. It contains the dos and don’ts of how to participate in a cross-promo.
Cross-promotions for sapphic fiction authors
The following cross-promotions are open to any author of sapphic fiction:
- Sapphic Book Bingo 2023 (January 1 – December 31, 2023)
- Sapphic Book Bingo 2024 (January 1 – December 31, 2024)
- Giveaway of the Week (Ongoing)
- Ultimate Sapphic Holiday Romance list (Ongoing/December)
Marketing opportunities for new authors
Authors who have published no more than two novels can submit a book to the following two promo opportunities.
IMPORTANT: If you publish under multiple pen names and have published more than 2 novels across all pen names, you are NOT a new author. The “new author” spots are meant to help authors just starting out, not authors who are trying to establish a new pen name. I offer other opportunities to more experienced authors.
- New author post of the Sapphic Book Bingo (posted on July 6, 2023, but I can still add new authors after that date since the post will stay up)
- New Author of the Month (Ongoing)
There’s a limited number of spots for these two cross-promotions, so these events will be by invitation only.
I’ll reach out to authors who have proven to share cross-promotions reliably in the past because I believe that being a team player should pay off.
- Sapphic Book Advent Calendar (December 1-25, 2023)
