You’ve just had your first erotic book published. Or, maybe it’s your second or third, it really doesn’t matter. You’re feeling excited and ready for the next step as a published author: Your book’s promotion online.
You settle down in front of your computer and start to look for places to submit your book listing to but, it doesn’t take you long to realise there’s a big problem. You discover that your book, because of its subject matter/genre, is not accepted on 9 out of 10 of the book listing sites on the internet.
So, what do you do? How can you successfully market your erotic/adult book online if you are unable to list it on all these sites?
Well, this is where I come in. By searching endlessly for suitable places to list my adult e-book, Inner Sins, I’ve saved them all in my favourite’s folder for future reference. In this article I have listed some of them here for you, so all that you have do is to visit them and submit.
Easy! So, get ready to start promoting!
123 Storymania Direct
‘With StoryMania Direct you can sell your work directly to the public & buy works directly from authors.’ Listing includes Songs, Biography, Business & Finance, Children, Cooking and Romance to name a few. Create an author account for free and submit your book details including a cover image.
Despite its name, this site is more than just an article directory. It lists e-books, articles, books, classifieds, tools and links to help you promote your book. Create an account for free, list your books, create a classified ad and take advantage of the resources available to you.
‘The Free E-book Promotion Site.’ This is one site I’ve saved but have not yet submitted a listing. This is for two reasons: a) I’ve yet to receive a review for Inner Sins and b) At the time of writing, they’re not accepting new reviews as they’re currently updating the site but it’s still worth keeping an eye on.
‘The site where authors can promote their published books and e-books as well as share publishing successes.’ Free to create an account and list one book. If you wish to list more books and unlock some added promotional features then you can upgrade for a one time fee of $25. Also, has links to articles about book promotion and marketing.
‘…offers news and commentary; reviews of software, hardware, and content; a lending library; community forums; a huge e-book directory; reading lists; publisher listings, and much more.’ Free to create an account and list your book with an option to purchase the premium service if you wish. There is also a chance to request a review for your book.
Digital Fiction Links
Lists all possible genres of fiction. Doesn’t have a category for non-fiction, however. Free to submit and list.
HED: Hunt’s E-book Directory
Has a wide variety of categories including romance, erotica and gay & lesbian. I seriously wish there were more sites like this one. It also offers a topsite and banner exchange for extra promotion for book sites.
For ease of promotion it’s a good idea to bookmark all of these sites or, even better, save this article for future reference. By listing your book on most if not all of these sites, you can be assured of increasing your books exposure and your future sales.
