Promotional/Marketing Services - A

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W XYZ

These are services that attempt to publicize your work once it's published or to give you an idea of how your work can best be marketed.

Some of these businesses work differently in that they promote unpublished works (primarily on the Internet) to actual literary agents. So far, P&E has heard that one of these sites claims to have assisted some writers place their manuscripts with agents or sell to publishers. We do not know if this is the beginning of a new way to do business in the literary industry or merely a fad. As always, P&E recommends using caution.
