Romance Writers! ⭐ 2020 Novella Series Registration Now Open!

Click Here for More Information & Author Registration

 

Pure Textuality PR is organizing a series of novella sets for the purposes of cross-promotion with other authors in #Romancelandia. Each series has 10 spaces available at $100.00 for each novella (please note we will not be adding spaces at a later date). Royalties are paid directly to you by Amazon and your registration fee covers everything from the cover and formatting to a full marketing package which includes physical marketing materials.

Registrations are first come, first served and registration fees are non-refundable. This is a Pure Textuality PR project funded by a bare minimum registration, not for the purposes of a large profit margin. Registration fees pay for the time of the staff needed to prepare everything for publication, the cost of cover stock and art, the giveaway prizes, and more.

We have 4 romance novella sets available for registration right now:

  • Dark Hearts Series Adult Paranormal
  • Steamy Essentials Series Adult Steamy Contemporary
  • Hearts Afire Series New Adult Fantasy
  • Sweethearts & Soulmates Series Sweet/Clean Contemporary

STORY PUBLICATION HISTORY REQUIREMENTS & STORY LENGTH

Length – 25,000 – 30,000 words

Publication History Requirement – An original story (previously unpublished) is not required for any of these novella series. However, for the best sales results, new content is preferred.

SERIES SHELF LIFE & DUE DATES

The shelf life of your novella is up to you. We only require that it be available as part of the romance novella series for a period of 6 months. After that 6 month period is over, you may unpublish your story, leave it as is, or rebrand and republish it. As long as it’s presented as part of the series (with your PTPR supplied cover), it will continually be promoted by Pure Textuality PR.

Each series will have the same timeline of due dates:

DUE DATE #1) Your finished novella must be submitted to Pure Textuality PR for ebook formatting, paperback formatting, and paperback flat (cover) adjustments at least 70 days prior to publication.

DUE DATE #2) This due date is actually ours. Your publication ready files will be returned to you by Pure Textuality PR within 5 days of receipt.

DUE DATE #3) Your book must be uploaded to Kindle Direct Publishing 60 days prior to publication for preorder period promotion (to boost your release day ranking and help catch the eyes of readers surfing the Amazon charts for their next read).

Publication dates are as follows:

      • Dark Hearts Series – October 1, 2020
      • Steamy Essentials Series – September 1, 2020
      • Hearts Afire Series – August 1, 2020
      • Sweethearts & Soulmates Series – July 1, 2020

NOTE REGARDING EDITING
Please be advised that the cost of editing your novella is not part of this package. Final novellas submitted for formatting must be professionally edited prior to submission. If you are in need of an editor, Pure Textuality PR can recommend several editors with reasonable rates. However, editing is not a service PTPR provides. We leave that to the folks who know what they’re doing with a red pen.

Covers will be revealed to the participating authors in January 2020 and revealed to the public in May 2020. Pure Textuality PR will be submitting each series cover reveal to USA Today’s HEA Book Blog for coverage. If they choose to do an exclusive cover reveal, that will be our outlet. If they pass, Pure Textuality PR will organize a mass series cover reveal through our network of awesome book bloggers.

PUBLICATION & ROYALTY PAYMENT

When the time comes, you will publish your novella yourself. Pure Textuality PR will supply you with everything you need. You’ll simply upload the files by the designated date. This allows Amazon to pay the royalties directly to you. For the purposes of promotion, you’ll list SEDUCTIVE Reads as a co-author but there will be no split royalty arrangement. Your royalties are 100% yours.

RECOMMENDED PRICING & RETAILER AVAILABILITY

The price of your novella is ultimately up to you. However, we are recommending a list price of $1.99 each due the story length.

All 4 romance novella series must be enrolled in the Kindle Unlimited (KDP Select) program for 6 months. This means your story can’t be available anywhere else (individual ebooks or in a boxed set or anthology). This violates the terms of the Kindle Unlimited program. After the initial 6 months, your book may be removed from the program.

WHAT DO YOU GET FROM YOUR REGISTRATION FEE?

When you register for one of the novella sets, Pure Textuality PR will supply the following for your novella publication and marketing needs:

      • Ebook & Print Cover
      • Ebook & Print Formatting
      • 50 6”x9” Book Cover Postcards
        (& Digital Files for Your Personal Reorder)

        (1 for the Series & 2 for Your Book – 1 for Pre-Release, 1 for Post Release)

SERIES PROMOTION

Earlier this year, Pure Textuality PR launched a sister book blog called SEDUCTIVE Reads, but the blog served a secondary purpose: to promote the SEDUCTIVE Anthology. Now that the initial promotion of the anthology is over, instead of closing down the website, we decided to keep it open and make it a hub for all the romance anthologies, boxed sets, and novella series we publish.

For each of the novella series, a page will be created on the SEDUCTIVE Reads website which includes the book’s blurb, cover, Amazon purchase link, and the author’s critical links (newsletter, website, Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, BookBub, and/or Amazon).

Three months prior to the release of your novella series, Pure Textuality PR will begin intense promotion of the set in an effort to amp up release day buzz. This will include submitting the series to USA Today’s HEA Book Blog for a spotlight and much more.

The release promotion will include a 60-day giveaway for a $200 Amazon gift card (sponsored by Pure Textuality PR) and book blogger promotion (the booking for blogger participation will begin 60 days prior to publication). The giveaway will be devised to drive promotion of the series and to grow your audience. The initial entry point will be to sign up for the participating authors’ newsletter mailing lists. When the giveaway ends, the 10 participating authors will receive a CSV file containing their new subscribers. Additional entry options will be available which includes following the participating authors on social media, sharing the series Amazon link on social media, and sharing the giveaway on social media.

All participating authors will be supplied with promotional materials for their own sharing including pre-typed social media posts and premade HTML blog posts.

Announcement! Pure Textuality PR’s Book Blog is Now Accepting Applications for New Reviewers!

WANT TO BE A REVIEWER ON OUR BOOK BLOG???

Good afternoon, readers!

A few months ago, we migrated the old Pure Textuality book blog over to the Pure Textuality PR website. Now that we’ve got it all cleaned up and organized, we’re ready to rebuild our reviewer team. We receive HUNDREDS of book review requests every month, plus the review requests for the tours we organize. As a result, we are opening up spots for 10 reviewers to begin with, but depending on the number of applications received, we may open up more.

Our requirements are very loose and mostly common sense, but the most important piece is that we’re looking for folks who can commit to writing at least 2 reviews per month. The reviews can be either books we send you (from our incoming review requests) or books acquire on your own. All we ask is that you post at least 2 per month (there is no maximum; post as many as you’d like).

ALREADY A BOOK BLOGGER SOMEWHERE ELSE?  Not a problem. Reviewing on multiple blogs can be a great way to build your readership. ARE YOU AN AUTHOR WHO LOVES TO READ? Reviewing the books you read can be a great way to connect with new audiences. FOR BOTH EXISTING BOOK BLOGGERS AND AUTHORS: If you have a website URL, you can include it on your user registration and it will appear with your reviews!

EXTENSIVE WORDPRESS KNOWLEDGE NOT REQUIRED.

We will teach you the basics so you can write your actual review,
but the formatting and such is all taken care of by PTPR.
You simply write the text of your review.

Authors – Urgent News – 2 Pkgs Just Opened! Limited Availability!

Good evening.

With Autumn comes contract renewal time here at Pure Textuality PR, and this year, we’ve had two Unlimited PR Package authors who have chosen not to renew. This allows us the opportunity to either take on two new authors or one publishing imprint.

Of our services, the Unlimited PR Package gets you the most bang for your buck. Unlimited PR Package clients have unlimited use of our PR services for the duration of the package they purchase. This includes unlimited blog tours, cover reveals, blitzes, newsletter listings with authors of the same genre, custom made book swag, and much more. Contracts are available in 3, 6, or 12 month increments and can be purchased as a one-time contract, or you may request that we automatically invoice you upon renewal time.

An important note, we do not require exclusivity. Meaning if you’re a big fan of stacked promotions through multiple avenues, an Unlimited PR Package does not prevent you from being able to use other companies to promote at the same time. While we work very hard for our clients to provide them with the best possible service, we also understand that diversity in your marketing profile is important for anyone’s success.

Below you will find a list of a few of our current and past clients (the last bullet point is to a longer list on our website). Additionally, below you will also find a little bit more detailed info about our Unlimited PR Package.

The spaces available won’t last, so if you’re thinking about purchasing one of the packages but have questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.

Thank you for your time!

Have a heavy release schedule coming up? Or maybe you’re just ready to go on a promotion binge in an attempt to boost sales of your back list. Pure Textuality PR is now offering an Unlimited PR package for just such circumstances.  For the duration of your package, you have unlimited use of our PR services.

PRICING – Per Publishing Imprint

ATTN WRITERS! Join Our Wattpad Flash Fiction Challenge! Request Your FREE Cover Today!

⊗⊗⊗ WHAT IS THE FLASH FICTION CHALLENGE? ⊗⊗⊗

Challenge might be the wrong word but it sounded better than “exercise thingy”. Each week, we will post a writing prompt, dialog line, or story starter out on our blog (it will also be included in the weekly author newsletter). Participating authors will then have the week to post a piece of flash fiction based on the provided prompt to their Wattpad profile.

The purpose of the challenge is to give writers a fun, weekly routine exercise to keep their writer brain fresh, even if they’re not currently working on a book. No one is judging the content of the flash fiction. The challenge is simply being created as something that can be done as a community. Participation is FREE.  No fees. No gimmicks. Just writing for fun.

At the end of each year, there will be prizes for certain markers, such as highest number of reads, highest number of likes, most weekly challenges completed, etc. Tied participants will be entered into random.org and the prize winner will be chosen using their list randomizer tool.

 

⊗⊗⊗ WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS? ⊗⊗⊗

Your flash fiction must be 200 or more words in length. Each participant will create a new work on Wattpad called Flash Fiction Challenge using challenge cover Pure Textuality PR provides. Each weekly challenge gets published as a new part in that work. Each year, we will provide participants with a new cover customized with their name.

 

⊗⊗⊗ HOW LONG DOES THE CHALLENGE RUN? ⊗⊗⊗

This will be a weekly challenge we post indefinitely. The challenge covers have the appearance of a composition notebook and each year, the color of the notebook will change. For instance, 2018’s cover is shown in the banner above and the color is burgundy. 2019 will be marked as 2019 – Volume II and will be a different color.

 

⊗⊗⊗ WHAT IF I MISS A WEEK? ⊗⊗⊗

Not a big deal. The only thing affected by missing a week is the fewer you participate in, the lower your chances of winning the prize for most weeks participated. No one gets disqualified or booted from the challenge if they miss a week. 🙂

 

THE FIRST PROMPT GOES LIVE THIS WEEK!
