Who will work with me on my book?
A dedicated member of the Diversion Books team will work with you on every aspect of your project, managing the production process from the copyedit and cover design, to formatting and conversion of the book files, to distribution to all retailers, as well as overseeing marketing and publicity strategy and implementation. This team member will be someone you can come to with ideas for the full term of publication, to answer questions, brainstorm new ideas for promotion, and help you to continue building out and optimizing your online presence.
Where will you distribute my book?

How will my book be promoted?
There are a variety of ways in which Diversion Books will promote your book, and it’s important to note that all of these efforts will be ongoing throughout the life of your book:
We will help you leverage and grow your existing platform to raise visibility for you and your book. Once your project has been accepted by Diversion, we will audit your online presence, regarding everything from your website to your Twitter and Goodreads accounts, with feedback on how it can be made stronger and more effective.
In addition to full distribution through all major online retailers, our team works hands on with contacts at each of those retailers to secure any available on-site promotional placement for your book, where appropriate. Promotional examples can include, but are not limited to, seasonal placement, or placement surrounding a timely event that ties in with your book.
The in-house Diversion Books marketing team will pay special attention to optimizing your metadata (BISAC codes, web copy SEO, etc.), so you and your book pull higher in organic searches online, and on the sites of the major online retailers, for popular keyword terms. We will also include your book in our monthly e-newsletter, and in all of our social media marketing efforts, and will make an excerpt available for our website, and further marketing outreach, such as book clubs.
A full publicity push will be made for your book, including outreach to key media contacts and bloggers, to secure reviews and coverage.
