You’ve done it. Your book has been planned, drafted, written and re-written multiple times, sent to beta readers, sent to an editor and re-written again. You’ve created a cover design or hired someone to create one for you, suggested some changes and approved the updated version. You’ve formatted it, put together a launch plan and then, (finally), your shiny new book is published!
Authors have always been a community that I enjoy working with as a social media manager. I love the creativity and enthusiasm that authors have for their books and the characters they have created, and I have been introduced to the world of bookstagrammers and reading communities that delight in sharing their thoughts on their latest reads.
As the importance of social media has grown in terms of reaching a wider audience and converting them to sales, what I have discovered is that many authors struggle with the promotion and marketing of their new book, particularly when deciding on what imagery to use.
The issue isn’t that they don’t know what it is they want, but it is more having the time, the resources and the money to make their vision become a reality. Many don’t know where to start. What props should be used? Should I buy some lighting? Do I need backgrounds? What resolution should I be using on my social media? Professional photoshoots are wonderful, but usually super-expensive.
Here’s where I can help!
Welcome to my Book Photography Services for Authors!
Want to have professional, high resolution images of your books that can be used across all your social media platforms and / or on your website?
For the introductory launch price of £55 I am offering a limited number of spaces to authors.
Choose from light or dark (or a mixture of both), decide on a selection of props or pick a seasonal theme and you will get TEN high resolution images of different social media sizes emailed to you within five working days.
Here are just a few examples of the types of book photos I have done for author friends – thanks to all of them for allowing me to use their images!
S R Summers is the author of The Infinity Squared series. When she’s not penning the next adventures of Mysty, Daryl, Donny and the gang, she loves walking in the Cotswolds, finding good places to bust out a crazy yoga poses, rock climbing and dangling upside down on a hoop. The first three books – Indigo Lost, Indigo Star and Indigo Dares are available to purchase from her website here or are available on Amazon here!
