The Kirkus Basic service combines two effective and powerful platforms for promoting self-published titles to literary agents, traditional publishing houses, booksellers and, most importantly, book buyers.
With this package, you will get the following:
- Kirkus Standard Review
This paid review provides an honest, caveat-emptor evaluation under the same impartial rubric and in the same format and style as a traditional Kirkus review. Kirkus Indie posts these reviews on their website and the reviews are also eligible for inclusion in the Kirkus Indie monthly eNewsletter, which highlights the best submissions to the program at no extra cost. The eNewsletter goes to a targeted base of subscribers, including agents, editors, and librarians.
- Kirkus Catalogue (Quarter Page)
A quarter-page advertisement in a full-color catalogue distributed to Kirkus’ database of industry influencers, which includes librarians, publishers, book sellers, book buyers and decision makers.
*This bundle includes a cover revision option for authors to include a review blurb on their book cover.
