I love a good self-published fantasy or sci-fi book. Self-published books never seem to get enough love. Marketing them can be daunting. Outreach to bloggers and reviewers can seem overwhelming and terrifying.
Marketing and outreach don’t have to be scary. There are lots of bloggers, like myself, who would love to help you with your self-published book.
So if you want your book to be shared with my audience, then submit it here. I will get back to you soon!

Why Should Self-Published Authors Work with Bloggers?
This is a question I see a lot, and I want to give you a little bit of insight into why you should be working with content creators and bloggers to market your self-published books.
Working with creators has pros and cons, and no two creators are alike. Sadly, there are times when you may have a bad experience that sours you to all creators. There is even this significant stigma against “influencers” where people think they “don’t work” and add nothing of value to society. As a content creator and digital marketer working on the other end of the industry, I must say that creators are extremely valuable.
For one, when a content creator recommends something they genuinely enjoy, their audience is likelier to pick up that product than if they just saw a TV commercial or targeted Facebook Ad. That is because their audience looks at them similarly to how they view their friends. People take recommendations from friends much more often than they do from celebrities and ads.
These creators spend time and effort creating quality content and building their audience. Even with a small audience, creators can have a huge impact depending on their niche. For example, you can reach an audience of 2K+ fantasy book readers audience when you work with a small niche BookTube channel like mine. It may be small, but it is highly targeted.
This is the tip of the iceberg when working with bookish content creators. There are so many benefits, and even if you’ve had a bad experience in the past, you should really consider working with other creators.
I will say that you should focus more on micro-influencers. Smaller channels with highly targeted audiences. These will be the people who are most likely to be super excited to work with you and hype your new release. They are the ones who have formed a relationship with their audience and constantly engage with them. Also, smaller content creators are the ones that are probably within your budget. When you start wanting to work with creators with massive followings, they are going to want compensation outside of just a copy of your book. While there is nothing wrong with creators being paid for their work, as a new self-published author, it is probably not in the budget.
Many creators, like myself, are doing this for fun, so we are more than willing to accept a book for review without expecting marketing compensation.
If you are an author, or anyone really, who is interested in more marketing tips, let me know! I would be happy to talk more in-depth about digital marketing and give you all the inside scoop.
