In addition to being posted as part of the daily blog, BOOK OF THE DAY is also highlighted in a specifically dedicated sidebar on the blog. This remains up for 24 hours. Specific dates are booked on a first come basis and require a minimum of one week advance notice.

6)  BANNER advertising options.

Please contact us for availability dates. Payment is required to reserve a date.

Please note that the provider of the HTML script bears responsibility for its functioning as intended (e.g. animation).

Select the option you want to use and make your minimum donation either via PayPal to flurriesofwords@yahoo.co.uk or through the Donate button on the upper left of the main blog page.  Then, send us an email to either flurriesofwords@yahoo.co.uk or flurriesofwords@gmail.com with links to the book(s) and dates you would like the listing to appear as well as the name on the account from which your donation came (so I can match payment to book/ad). Please give us at least 48 hours advance notice. In the title of your email, please specify which advertising option you want as well as the specific dates to be covered. Please send a separate email for each book you would like listed.

All listings will be in the form of a blog post which will be shared on Facebook, Twitter and Google+. These ads entail posting of the cover image, book blurb and purchase links on the Flurries of Words' daily blog feed. The blogs are archived so you will still be able to reference it after the advertising date has passed.

The above pricing matrix covers one iteration of an ad.  Should authors wish to change the content (e.g. switch campaigns, alter the description, change artwork) after the ad has been created, additional charges may apply.  This will be handled on a case by case basis.

Please make sure you follow the blog, re-Tweet, share et cetera and encourage your followers to do the same. Please also leave comments on the Flurries of Words blog, Facebook et cetera as this will increase visibility and traffic, which should translate into more sales!

APOLOGIES BUT WE DO NOT TAKE PORN, EROTICA OR GRATUITOUSLY VIOLENT BOOKS (or any of the various euphemisms for these).  We would be grateful if authors would please respect this policy and refrain from submitting such books as it wastes both our time and yours. To clarify, think of your book as a movie.  Anything that would get an 'R' rating is acceptable but anything that would be rated 'NR', 'NC-17' or 'X' would not be.


Please note that if a donation is given for a book of this type, we will notify the author that the book is unsuitable for the site and ask for submission of alternate titles that fall within our specified parameters.  In such cases REFUNDS WILL NOT BE ISSUED given that our parameters are explicitly stated. The decision about what constitutes porn, erotica and/or gratuitously violent is solely the site moderator's.  This decision is final.  If in doubt, please write to us before sending a donation.


PLEASE NOTE that prices are subject to change.  

ALSO PLEASE NOTE, these prices are for one rendition of an ad only.  Because of the labor involved in creating and changing the ads, once the ads have been created, additional charges may apply if the author wants to subsequently modify the ad (e.g. change the description, artwork, advertising options).  This will be handled on a case by case basis.

  3. With regard to the "indie new releases" option, our titles are not new in PRINT but are new in eBOOK - do they still qualify under that program?

    Most are $9.99+ at Amazon.com, B&N, iTunes, etc.. - we have to base epub on the retail price of the print book thru our distributor services on the ebooks.


    Our books are mainly community cookbooks from self-publishing authors and non-profit groups.


    So, let me know if your site would be a good fit for our eCookbooks.

  8. To make your email link work, you put this code in:
    mailto:Flurriesofwords@gmail.com which will open the reader's email program. You don't have to use the actual address. You can do something like this on the HTML side (not the design side):
