If you are a local author with a publishing contract with a New York publisher, we would love to get an advance reading copy of your forthcoming book so that we can help start some early buzz for you. We can read print or digital galleys. They can be sent to the store at:
1175 Woods Crossing Rd #2
Greenville, SC 29607
Many authors are part of a writing group. Click here to see a list of local writing groups. The link contains contact information, so if you are interested in joining, please contact these groups directly.
If your group is open to the public but is not listed, please contact us if you would like your group added to our web page.
Your best source for local illustrators is the Carolinas chapter of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI).
You could also try the local arts high schools, the SC Governor's School for the Arts and Humanities and the Greenville County Schools Fine Arts Center.
If your book is available in print, please list Bookshop as a source for ordering your book, alongside Amazon and/or Barnes & Noble. Bookshop supports independent bookstores, instead of competing with them. You can create your own Bookshop affiliate account as an author or you can use our affiliate link when linking to your book. To use our link, simply replace ISBN with your ISBN in this URL: https://bookshop.org/a/25/ISBN (such as https://bookshop.org/a/25/9781938383045)
You can also link to Fiction Addiction directly by replacing the ISBN in this URL: https://www.fiction-addiction.com/si/ISBN.html. Make sure to leave the N, such as https://www.fiction-addiction.com/si/9780985112202.html
If your book is available as a Kobo ebook, we would greatly appreciate it if you would include our affiliate code in any Kobo links on your website. All you do is add ?utm_medium=web&utm_source=ABA20G7881 to the end of whatever URL you were planning to use. For instance, the regular link to my dad's book, Penelope, is http://store.kobobooks.com/en-US/ebook/penelope-a-novel-of-new-amsterdam. The version with our affiliate code is: http://store.kobobooks.com/en-US/ebook/penelope-a-novel-of-new-amsterdam?utm_medium=web&utm_source=ABA20G7881. With the code, if someone creates a new Kobo account from your link, they become an affiliate of Fiction Addiction. The code does not affect pricing or customers who already had a Kobo account.
If you control your ebook rights then it is free to publish your book on Kobo. Simply visit Kobo Writing Life to learn more. If you need help converting your book to epub format, my dad sells this service to authors. Just email me and I'll put you in touch with him.
