We are currently accepting advertising for
the September/October 2015 issue and beyond.

FAQ’s:

Premiere ads are placed within the first 21 pages of the issue (see below for page assignments). These all come with premium ad design. Premiere ads get the most exposure and the highest views because of their top-rank placement.

Premium ads are generally a good fit for those looking for a little extra piazzas for their ad. They are custom created to match your book and/or author website to help retain consistent branding of your promotional message. Premium ads can generally allow for more books per ad (up to 4 for full page and up to 3 for half page).

Standard ads are created using our basic design templates. Standard ads are limited to a maximum of 2 books per ad for full and half page ads and 1 book for fourth page ads.

There are two main reasons we limit the number of books:

1. The size of the ad dictates how much space we have to include all your ad information (book covers, blurbs, headlines, purchase information, etc.) So, the smaller the ad, the less information we can place on it.

2. There is no additional design fee for standard ads (they cost the same as if you were to submit the completed ad yourself) however, they still require the work of a designer. Limiting the number of books on a standard ad helps us keep the cost down for our advertisers.

Generally, the amount of information and number of books you want to include in your ad will often dictate the size of the ad you should order. Here are some basic guidelines to help you choose:

  • Fourth Page ad – 1 book with a very short blurb and one link
  • Half Page Standard – 1 or 2 books, short blurbs, one purchase link per book
  • Half Page Premium – 1 to 3 books with short blurbs, includes custom design and one purchase link per book plus a link to your author website (if applicable)
  • Full Page Standard – 1 or 2 books, longer blurbs, one purchase link per book
  • Full Page Premium – 1 to 4 books with optional longer blurbs, includes custom design and one purchase link per book plus a link to your author website (if applicable)
  • Big Splash 2-page Ad – 1 to 10 books with optional longer blurbs and excerpts (depending on the number of books included,) includes custom design and one purchase link per book plus a link to your author website (if applicable)

Premiere and Elite Premiere Ads – Location. Location. Location. These ads are all about the placement. They come with premium ad design to match your cover or brand and gain maximum exposure within the first few pages of the magazine.

* While we can include longer blurbs on some of our larger and premium ads, we do not recommend using long blurbs. Short blurbs, punchy tag-lines and big, eye-catching book covers and design resonate really well with readers.

What our advertisers are saying about their experience with BTS:

“…what did work for me was a full-page ad in BTSemag (www.btsemag.com). It made an Amazon rating skyrocket on both books I promoted… I was shocked at how many books I sold the day of and after the issue came out. [The cost] was very, very reasonable for a full-page ad in an e-magazine.” – C.A. Szarek, March 2014

“Last year, at the same time I advertised with BTS, and Myra generously gave me a feature with short story spot in her magazine, my numbers shot upwards. BTS provides the most affordable venue for independent writers and publishers on the Internet. I advertise with BTS exclusively, and consider them a mainstay in my continued success.” – Bernard DeLeo, November 2013

“I am thrilled to report that my June 30th royalty payment was 5 times more than the previous quarter and, judging from continued sales, I also expect an additional 300% increase from that in my September payment… The rest I attribute to exposure through BTS and some promotion I have done via Facebook… BTS continues to reach a wide and diverse audience, which I feel is helpful in building a fan base. I am thrilled to be a part of the magazine and a part of your team and hope that things will continue to grow from here.” – Mary Manners, February 2014

“My sales skyrocketed after I started placing an ad in every issue. I shared my percentage increases in 2 issues; the Dec 2012 emag, page 10, and the March 2013 issue, page 8.” – Myra Nour, April 2014

Submitting Books for Review:

When purchasing an ad, you are welcome to also submit your book for review. After you have filled out the ad form and paid, you will be taken to a form to submit your book for review if you wish. Reviews are the opinion of the individual reviewers and not a reflection of BTS’s view of the author’s novels. Please note that purchasing an ad or submitting a review request does not secure a review within our emag.

*We CAN NOT guarantee that your review will be posted at the same time as your ad.

Note: You may submit your novel to BTS for review consideration without purchasing an ad. Authors who have purchased an ad with us get first consideration from the review team.
