Each Legacy Isle client who indicates that they have plans to promote their book to the general public receives a Publicity Kit that includes our Book Marketing Guidelines and a professionally-written press release tailored to your title; a 30-day “Recent Releases” placement on our website; and a listing on our Legacy Isle Client Bookshelf.
With the exception of inclusion in our portfolio of past projects, clients who publish a minimal quantity of books strictly for sharing with friends and family will not receive the services below. Clients may request to be excluded from our project portfolio.
Book Marketing Guidelines — Advice from our Director of Sales & Marketing on the basics of book marketing, covering everything from the essential materials you need to have on hand when pitching the media; how to pitch to broadcast, print and online media; what to expect in a media interview; what to bring to a book signing; setting up your social media profiles and more. These are the same effective marketing tools that we employ every day at our traditional publishing division, Watermark Publishing.
Personally Tailored Press Release — After reading your manuscript and an Author Questionnaire completed by you, our team will craft an industry standard press release for you to distribute.
Legacy Isle Client Spotlight Feature — Your book will be featured for a minimum of 30 days on our homepage. Clicking on the title will direct visitors to your Legacy Isle Client Bookshelf page (see below).
Legacy Isle Client Bookshelf — Our Bookshelf features past client projects (if you prefer to keep your project private, you may opt out of the Bookshelf and Spotlight components). Each client’s Bookshelf page includes a description of the project, cover and interior sample images, and a “Buy the Book” link to the client’s website and/or point-of-purchase for the book. If your book is not for sale, the link will be modified to read, “For more information.” The main Bookshelf page features the book cover and title.
