A year or so ago, I created a “sampler” for authors at Wings Epress to use in special promotional days where five authors were featured each month. My suggestion was to create an e-book to offer all readers who participate in the special days. This would give everyone something to take home and it would also provide the opportunity to give a simple promotional plug for the other authors who will participate in the following months.
When I started getting feedback from other authors, I realized this would be a nice item to create for other authors and almost any business owner.
I’m figuring the costs to create a custom product for other authors or businesses. This would be a great giveaway for authors who have multiple books in publication or authors who have various short stories they would like to share with their readers. You could sell this item or offer it as a way to entice new readers to buy your books.

|I’m using an introductory price starting at $75 per ebook – but the final price depends on how much information you want to include. If you have special ideas and information that you would like to incorporate into a Custom Promotional Creation for your business or your books, feel free to contact me at email@example.com and we can discuss some options.
My goal is to make this a PERSONAL and CUSTOM creation that will reflect you and your style.
I have several promotional e-books. There is one for each of my Nikki Leigh series and one for my business books. These are very easy to email, can be linked to a blog page for download or they can be burned to CD to make a very nice promotional piece for you. They are great to send to bookstores or other businesses that you want to consider your book.
Mine include the following information
- The Cover art and title
- The Table of Contents
- The Introduction
- Chapter 1
- Setting information and pictures (if applicable)
- Author Bio
- Character Details (for novels)
- Details about each book in a series

- Contact Information
- Relevant sample articles from author
- Information about services the author offers
- Testimonials for the author

- Almost anything can be included – these are just some suggestions of things I have used
The possibilities of what to include and what to promote are unlimited. What would you like to promote with a promotional e-book? I’d love to talk with you about what you would like to promote. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
