Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

Book promotion on Reddit


[Sorry everyone: this thread seems to have been discontinued, I now discover in 2016!]

This might be helpful to writers out there who have a book they’re trying to market. It’s a subreddit where you can promote your work without fear of the dreaded spam rap. As the site describes it:

This is a place for Redditors to post links and descriptions of their finished magnum opi. All genres of literature and graphic novels are welcome with no length requirements, so long as it is a completed, published work. Shameless self-promotion is the entire purpose of this subreddit, so share your published stories without fear of being vilified as a spammer.

There are specific guidelines as to how your message must be structured, so pay attention to that. As of right now there are over 500 registered readers on board, so that’s a reasonable number of eyeballs (x 2) to parade your stuff in front of.

Not sure if you can re-post your book there. Presumably new stuff pushes old stuff down the queue, so maybe the bump from this is short-lived.

Anybody already using it?
