Advertising and Spotlights

We offer a variety of spotlights and advertisement here on Books Are My Fandom and across our individual social media platforms. These are purely to help spread the word about your book. We would ensure that each is noted as being a paid advertisement to our followers. Depending on the advertisement, there is a varying amount of a deposit to be made. See below for details. All transactions will be through Paypal. If you are sending from a Paypal account in a different currency, please let us know so we can calculate the fee in that currency. We use Google’s exchange rate calculation at time of transaction. For more information, email us at hello@booksaremyfandom.com or see contact us through our Enquires page.

Fees are subject to change. Please note that our prices are in British Pound Sterling. 

Spotlight Posts: £15 per post (+ Varying Prices for any “Extras”)

Much like a spotlight post for a blog tour, you can host your book here on Books Are My Fandom, exclusively. We take pride in the appearance of our blog posts and would ensure the quality of our post meets your standards by showing you a preview of it before it is published. As well, we would schedule it for optimal viewing both in Europe and North America. Books Are My Fandom is unique in that we hail from two different time zones: Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and Eastern Standard Time (EST).

Advertising on Instagram: Varying Prices

For our Instagram advertisements, we want our brand and your novel to come across in the photo. Therefore, we would take up to a total of twelve photos to choose from for the Instagram post. (i.e. if you purchase one photo, three pictures will be taken; for three photos, eight pictures will be taken; for five photos, twelve photos would be taken.) We would ensure that the book title and author name are legible and clearly shown in the picture. Each photo will be “tagged” with our username on it. Please feel free to ask for one of us specifically if you enjoy our style of Instagram. The photo would be posted at 15:00 GMT and stay as the first photo on our account for at least six hours before another photo was added. The photo will also be cross-posted to our individual Twitter accounts (@booksandladders and @dani_reviews) and to the @booksaremyfandm account.
