Are you an LDS* author of fiction?
Has your NOVEL been published this year?
Then you can (probably) have a FREE spotlight post on this website!
Effective January 1, 2023: Spotlight post options have changed. Please read through the updated information below.
Free Spotlight Post
To get a Free Spotlight post for your novel on this site, you need to do TWO things before completing my form:
- List your book on Amazon.com. Book must be listed in at least one format (print, ebook, or audio) and available for sale or pre-order.
