Rootstock Book Publicity & Promotion Services

            We not only grow our books in Montpelier, Vermont, but we support our authors with an entire menu of promotion, marketing and publicity efforts.  For authors who partner with us as their publisher, these support services run the full gamut from editing and design to promotion, advertising and social media support, and are included in our two different levels of partnerships with authors.

Working with Self-Published and Other Authors

Because of our over 30 years of experience producing and supporting music and book projects, we now offer our skills and expertise directly to authors who are publishing elsewhere but who wish to acquire professional promotional services to support their work.

            If you are working with another small publisher or you intend to self-publish, we can support your book in many different ways:

  • Create an author/book website;
  • Help create a book page on Facebook;
  • Support your efforts to promote and publicize your book through social media campaigns on Facebook,Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and other social media platforms;
  • Create your sell-sheet/tip sheet;
  • Show you how to obtain your ISBN and LCCN;
  • Assist you in attracting blurbs and reviews;
  • Assist in creating your press kit;
  • Assist in writing an effective press release;
  • Advise you about possible advertisements and their costs;
  • Set up and create your email database and email promotional campaigns;
  • Create a snail-mail promotional campaign to specific audiences like bookstores and libraries;
  • Show you how to target bookstores in your state, regionally or on a national scale;
  • Provide alternatives and ways to obtain the most effective online eBook selling presence possible;
  • Recommend awards entries;
  • Recommend possible conventions and trade shows to attend or, if you are on a shoe-string budget, to co-op with.

Contact us and we will devise a set of support services for you and your book, according to your needs and budget.
