Book Blast - $550.00

Through the Book Blast contest, authors and publishers can quickly reach over 2,000 youth book club facilitators across the country. 

The Book Blast contest gives multiple book club members the chance to win copies of a book - and spread the word to fellow readers and book club members. Learn about opportunities to include author recipes when registering for the Book Blast contest.

The author or publisher selects the number of books (25-50) to be given away, and ships the books directly to each of the winning book club members. All names and addresses of book club members are the property of The Kids’ Book Club Book and may not be used for other solicitations.

The contest is promoted through a dedicated email announcement, sent to 2,000 book club facilitators and members. The promotional announcement features a photo of the book cover with links to the author’s website, and a brief synopsis of the book along with short review quotes.

The contest book cover is also featured on the Home and Contest pages of The Kids’ Book Club Book website for one month, and attracts regular online visitors of The Kids’ Book Club Book website.

The contest winners are announced in a subsequent issue of Book Beat, accompanied by a book cover photo and website link.

Two mailings per month are available for the Book Blast contest.  These slots, available on the 1st and 15th of each month, must be reserved in advance.

Featured Author Recipes   *New *

This service is free with the purchase of a Book Club Buzz promotion. For others, the cost is $250.00.

Book clubs love recipes, especially when they’re linked to books.  Authors whose books are featured in the Book Blast contest are invited to contribute a recipe that a book club might prepare when discussing their book. Authors may submit a recipe for a food mentioned in the book, a period recipe, or a recipe that they associate with the story and its creation, along with a brief introduction.  The recipe does not have to be original; it can come another source, such as a cookbook or magazine.

The author recipe is posted on the Featured Author Recipes page of our website, with a link to the page on the website’s Home and Contest pages, in the promotional announcement, and in Book Beat. Featured Author Recipes remain on the site for readers to enjoy. 


KidsBuzz puts children's and teen authors and illustrators of forthcoming and already published books directly in touch with readers, reading groups, booksellers and librarians, allowing them to offer excerpts, phone chats or visits with reading groups and book clubs, material for newsletters, info about contests and freebies, mentions of new reviews and awards, book trailers and “inside the studio” videos — anything and everything authors and illustrators want to share with their readers. 

For new and already published books, board and picture books, nonfiction and graphic novels, poetry, chapter and middle-grade books, and books for teens.  See a sample KidsBuzz newsletter
