You don't know of any because there aren't many, in contrast to ebooks.

I haven't used them recently, but Audavoxx advertises audio books, and some of their ad options are cheap enough that it's easy to achieve a positive ROI with even a couple of sales. http://audavoxx.com/promote-with-us/

I notice Findaway Voices is pushing for simultaneous release of ebooks and audiobooks. I don't have the patience for that, but I can see it becoming more of a thing, in which case more promoters may include an audio option. The only ones I can recall with audio links are ENT and Fussy Librarian, but there may be others by now.

Ah, very cool, Bill. Thanks! I'll have to keep them in mind.

    I can't believe it's already August...where has 2018 gone??  ???

    Another prime book release season is coming up soon. Are you ready? Give me a shout if there's any way I can give you a hand.

    UPDATE: New Venue Added + Discount!

    I've added on the advertising services of The Masque of the Red Pen to my Promo Stacker list and I'll be using them in selective Book Rank pre-priced campaigns.

    The Masque of the Red Pen specializes in romance but also offers non-romance promotions on all sorts of literature: Science Fiction, Poetry, Prepper/SHTF fiction, Cozy Mystery...and more.

    They have a well-engaged list of over 12k subscribers and have close availability (1-2 weeks in most cases).

    My clients will save $15 on Solo and Featured ads and $5 on Regular ads with them. :)

    I went to look at this new site that you added. All the features are from 2015 cover reveals etc.


    I am very interested in your service since it looks like it would be helpful when I release my first book, but this site has me questioning it a bit.

    I checked and the top two listed new releases are from August 6 and July 31 of this year. I think the problem is that the website has a "You May Also Like" routine that pulls similar (but outdated) listings in under the current features. The site might well be better off without that, though if a reader wasn't just interested in promotional pricing, they might find some similar books that way.
    I have not consented to the new Terms of Service, which were implemented without any announcement and without the ability to accept or reject them. My continued participation on the forum is related only to addressing this issue and cannot be construed as implied consent.  9/19/2018

    I understand where you're coming from. A few things:

    -This site is new to my list and is on a sort of probationary period. I vetted them as thoroughly as I could, but yes, they must past muster and provide a reasonably effective service for the price. I managed to negotiate a pretty hefty discount to help bring the prices in line with what other, similar services provide based on list size, engagement, etc. This is what I try to do with every site that makes it to my list. Most make it, but over the last year and a half others have been removed for various reasons.

    -The services I'm offering to clients from this service are simple newsletter promotions. The cover reveals and such that you are seeing on their site are not on offer. Also, like Bill mentioned, the old listings are just part of some image carousel they have on the site - they have done plenty of recent promotions (as recent as yesterday).

    -My clients are always free to leave off sites they don't want when either ordering via the Promo Stacker or when purchasing a pre-priced campaign. If you don't want me to use them (or any other site), I won't. Simple as that.

    I'm very happy to hear that you're interested in the service and hopefully I'll get a chance to work with you soon. Let me know if you have any other concerns whatsoever and I'd be happy to address them.  ;D

    UPDATE: New Romance Venue Added

    I've added Pillow Talk Books to my romance Promo Stacker list and will incorporating their promotions into select Book Rank packages. They accept all genres of romance and specialize in Steamy, Contemporary, Erotica, New Adult, Suspense & Sweet.

    Promo Stacker & Book Rank clients will receive promotions at discount. PTB will also accept new releases from my clients so an ASIN is not necessary.

    Hurricane Florence is headed my way so if you're placing orders and unable to reach me or don't get my usual quick response, it's probably because I've lost power/internet/I'm underwater/I'm rag-dolling through the air/one of the above.

    Hang in there and I'll get back with you as soon as I can!

    (loads shotgun to fire "warning shots" at hurricane as it approaches)  :P

    Thanks, guys! Looks like Florence is outta here completely now. The worst we had included downed branches and a bit of light rain. I'd say the Charleston area of the Low Country got lucky this time.

    Sympathies to anyone affected more negatively by this storm- it was certainly a doozy.

    Anyway, all my orders are caught up right now so my availability is pretty much instant. If you need promotions anytime soon put your order in and I'll take care of you.  8)

    For those of you who have the time, I'd love some feedback if possible:

    -How or where do you typically concentrate most of your advertising these days? AMS? Facebook? Something else?

    -What percentage of your ad budget do you typically spend on email marketing/newsletter venues?

    -What service or product could Book Rank offer you that it isn't already? My goal is to save you time and reduce your workload. If I'm also able to save you money in the process, bonus!

    -Is there something I'm doing wrong or something that I could do better?

    Thanks!

    Thanks! You too, Vinny!

    I totally love working with my clients and helping them reach their goals. Watching an author's book do well and knowing I had even a small hand in that success is always a bit of a thrill.
