What can you Buzz?
• BUZZ a new release, or remind everyone about a recent title that got a brilliant review, news of an award, or news about your book being released in paperback.
• BUZZ your tour or your availability to visit throughout the year. Let bookstore owners, librarians and readers know that you're available to come and talk to their groups in person, or over-the-phone.
• BUZZ a contest, ARC giveaway, book "video" trailer, signed bookplates or bookmarks to readers, booksellers and librarians.
• BUZZ an excerpt, an interview or a review. Booksellers and librarians are always looking for material to use in their own newsletters.
KidsBuzz Shelf Awareness, DearReader.com, and KidsBookClubBook.com newsletters aren't extra emails you hope someone opens, or spam or a website you hope people discover. They're top newsletters that are already being opened by your target audiences.
YOU CAN STAND IN A BOOKSTORE ALL DAY LONG,
OR YOU CAN JUST KIDS BUZZ.
