Book Marketing Consultants and Book Promotion Services

This page features book marketing and book promotion services which specialize in working with book authors and publishers. We try to be comprehensive in these listings, so we list anyone who is offering a book marketing service. A listing does not mean a recommendation by us. Before signing with any book marketing service, check out their references.

Please note that this is a work in progress. If you'd like to nominate a book marketing service, please email John Kremer, the book promotion expert. I know that I have missed some companies I truly would like to add to this list. Your book marketing service might be one of those. Thanks for your support.

You will find no other book marketing service, book promotion expert, or book marketing consultant who lists all his or her competitors on a page like this. I do for one simple reason: I don't have any competitors. Yes, I am biased. But justly so. — John Kremer, author of 1001 Ways to Market Your Books
