"Every story needs a book"

Marketing

 

Without readers, a book is just some ink on paper. Books and authors need readers, reviewers, a following, and a strategic plan to obtain and maintain all those relationships. The good news is, if you've published a book through JCP you are already receiving complimentary marketing! Learn about the complimentary marketing JCP provides to our authors here.

 

Still, it can be hard to juggle branding and marketing yourself and your book(s) while also focusing on being a writer.

Jan-Carol Publishing can plant the seeds of your creative marketing solution, so that you can reap the reward.

 

With our 75+ years combined experience, JCP offers creative marketing solutions for published authors and their books. Each marketing plan is customizable to the needs of you and your work. Whether you're looking to start a website, reach out on social media, or have professional reviews, we have the experience and technical expertise to take your book marketing campaign to the next level.
