Have you self-published an amazing novel? An inspiring memoir? Are you looking to get your book in front a wider audience—an audience that includes publishing industry insiders and taste-makers? If so, you’ve come to the right place.
Every month, Publishers Weekly publishes PW Select, a supplement dedicated to covering the self-publishing industry that features interviews with authors, book announcements and listings, news, features, analysis, book reviews, and more.
PW Select is a great way to help your book stand out in a crowded market. When you sign up to participate in PW Select, you’ll be reaching Publishers Weekly’s readership of book and film agents, booksellers, editors, distributors, librarians, book reviewers, and national and international media--just the kind of people who can take a book and make it a bestseller. We’ve helped launch a few writing careers already. Maybe you’re next.
How Does PW Select Work?
When you register, your book receives an announcement listing in PW Select--which is bound into issues of Publishers Weekly and appears online at publishersweekly.com. Every announcement listing includes bibliographic, marketing, and editorial information about your book--so you can promote it to booksellers, publishers, agents, and industry insiders.
Additionally, every book listed in PW Select is automatically eligible for a review from Publishers Weekly. From the hundreds of books listed in each PW Select, approximately 25 percent are selected by our editors for a review. And, all authors registering with PW Select receive a six-month digital subscription to Publishers Weekly.
Which PW Select Program Is Right for You?
Publishers Weekly currently offers two PW Select programs:
If you’ve self-published your book in print or as an e-book (or as both), have your ISBN, and your book’s already available for sale, this option is for you.
PW Select Plus Vook
Publishers Weekly has partnered with e-book publisher Vook to offer authors the company’s rich e-book design and publishing platform in combination with the PW Select—this way you can publish and promote your e-book for one low price. If you've completed your manuscript but haven't published yet—or if you’ve published in print but not as an e-book—this option is for you.
