Complimentary Marketing for Every JCP Author

 

Being a JCP author comes with more perks than just getting to hold your book in your hands. We make it our mission to ensure our authors are well taken care of and receive the exposure their books deserve!

 

This is a non-comprehensive list of our complimentary marketing. JCP is continuously seeking new ways to market our books. We explore opportunities as we find them for individual authors and our author family as a whole.

  • JCP sends a press release for every newly published book. These press releases are sent to JCP’s local market, the author’s local market, and reach national and international markets. Not to mention, JCP sends press releases to any email address the author may supply to us, either on the PPC (Pre-Production Checklist) or after their book has been released.

  • JCP announces every newly published book in Voice Magazine for Women. This includes our print and online reach. Books are also announced across our social media platforms.

  • We also request authors inform us of any events or appearances they may have scheduled and include that information in Voice Magazine for Women and on our website.

  • JCP regularly shares authors’ social media posts to our own social media. This includes posts that we are tagged in or are sent to us by email. We are also available to share posts to our social media pages upon request, free of charge. Furthermore, we are continuously interacting with authors and readers on social media, including liking and commenting on posts to help maintain cross promotion and outreach.

  • JCP includes five books from our catalog to feature in Voice Magazine each month. These books are also featured individually through social media and an emailed newsletter throughout the month. These books are selected by JCP staff and based on the various themes of the month. As this process continues, every JCP book will be featured.

  • JCP helps authors communicate with venues, as some venues require contact with the publisher to set up events and book signings.

  • We will gladly submit up to five copies of an author’s book per year to reviewers, free of charge. These submissions are made upon request from the author.
