New in 2015!


Because we at West of Mars believe that promotion should be fast, easy, and engaging, we’re expanding beyond just the Featured New Book Spotlight. Now we’re bringing you Lines of Distinction.

You can submit lines of your own book, your friend’s book, some total stranger’s book. A new book, an old book… it doesn’t matter! If you see something that strikes you and makes you pause, share it here and the promotions team here at West of Mars will post it for you.

The rules are simple:

Send the line(s) you’d like to have featured to Yes, it can be a teaser graphic — I love those! So long as the copyrights on the artwork (and words, of course) are available to be used in this manner, send it.

Include the book cover and buy links.

Be patient! We’re busy over here and admittedly lousy with responding to e-mails. But we will, and you’ll get the next available date*.

Unlike the Featured New Book, Lines of Distinction will run whenever we’ve got an open spot.

There is a ten-line limit per book that you may submit to Lines of Distinction. However, they must be different lines! No overlap, either, please; this isn’t a way to excerpt a chunk of your book for free*.

* If you want to reserve a specific date for your Lines of Distinction, as with the Featured New Book, we impose a $5 fee.
