MEMBERSHIP COMING SOON
We are in the process of creating more options based on where you are in your author career. We understand that not everyone is in a place to invest large amounts of money into their book marketing.
Because of this, it is important to us to provide you with a variety of choices that can fit into your budget and for those further along in their career opportunities to expand your reach. In August we plan to roll out our 3 levels of membership. There will always be a free level that allows authors access to certain areas of the site. At the higher levels, there will be discounts, special opportunities, and more options not available at the free level.
As soon as we finalize these levels we will send out information to all our Crave Books authors, giving you all the chance to take advantage of these memberships first.

Group Book Giveaways
This is the best way to build your email list without spending thousands of dollars on Facebook, Google, or other PPC (pay per click) ads. We gather together 6-12 authors of the same genre who are willing to give away three copies of their eBook. We then create a landing page and a custom Facebook campaign targeting readers to sign up for the giveaway (see here). When readers sign up, they agree to be contacted by the authors in the giveaway promotion.
Once the giveaway ends, we select three winners and distribute the books to those winners. The CSV file with all the reader’s email addresses is attached to the giveaway promotion on your account dashboard. Just download the emails into your newsletter program to add these new readers to your list.
