You can increase your book publicity at BiblioScribe.com, a site where authors and publishers can still market their books in the same place that they can be purchased. BiblioScribe.com allows members to use free article and Press release tools that embeds their book as part of the article, and readers have the opportunity of locating and buying the subject book directly from Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, Powell’s, as well as corresponding UK and Canadian online booksellers. Additionally, the Biblioscribe.com members’ public profile provides links to multiple books specified by the member, as well as the memner's own website. BiblioScribe membership is also free as well as an account on the BiblioScribe Blog.

BiblioScribe.com appears to be associated with vanity press iUniverse. However, it also appears that the services they say are free on BiblioScribe are really free, so I'm allowing this ad to stand--for now.

Deborah,

BiblioScribe.com is not associated in any way with iUniverse, however, iUnivers as well as Lulu and Booksurge advertise on our site.

BiblioScribe.com is a site from Poor Richard web press, LLC that looks to provide free services to authors - especially new authors - who need help marketing their books.
