Who Can Promote Books with LitNuts

  • Authors and publishers of any book published by an independent, university, small, or micro press. 
  • Authors who have put in the time, money, and hard work to publish a quality book on their own. 

    Pricing Your Book

    Many other book promotion newsletters focus solely on bargain books. Some require that the e-book edition be on sale for $2.99 or less. We are more flexible.

    LitNuts does not require that your book be on sale. We recommend pricing aggressively ($4.99 or less for the e-book edition, for example), but pricing is entirely up to you.  

        Please note: 
        1. On the day of your book promotion, you are responsible for making sure the price of your book matches the price you submitted to LitNuts. If not, we will modify or cancel the promotion.
        2. We do not solicit or accept book promotions from the Big Five publishers or their imprints. However, we are supportive of authors who want to promote their own work, so we accept book promotions from the author of any professionally published book.
        3. We do not promote erotica, pornography, or books that may be considered offensive to any race, gender, religion, etc.
        4. We reserve the right to refuse to promote a book for any reason.
