FOR AUTHORS, EDITORS, & PUBLISHERS When the time has come to get your work in front of a reading public, there's lots to learn. Let us help—with industry resources, guidelines, and shared experience.
Get your book reviewed
If you or your book have a Texas connection or if your book has a special appeal for Texas readers—whether individuals, librarians, or resellers—Lone Star Literary Life’s robust review coverage can help steer them to it.
Informative, engaging professional reviews of Texas-related books constitute the heart of our publication. Through our Lone Star Reviews, we strive to cover the most important and widely appealing new titles in the Lone Star State as close as possible to publication date. Our staff determines which books will be considered for Lone Star Review, and solicitations are generally not accepted due to space and resource limitations. While we do not take solicitations for Lone Star Reviews, publishers of any size and location are welcome to submit new Texas-related titles for consideration in Lone Star Sponsored Reviews.
LONE STAR SPONSORED REVIEWS
If your Texas book fits our scope but is not selected for Lone Star Reviews (is your book on a specialized topic? genre fiction? some months past publication?), consider a Lone Star Sponsored Reviews. LEARN MORE.
Take your book on a blog tour
LONE STAR BOOK BLOG TOURS enable an author to visit virtually with readers via interactive blogs, rather than at physical readings and book signings.
Readers are passionate about their books, and nowhere are they more passionate than in the blogosphere. Thousands of readers write, report, and promote as book bloggers, helping build buzz for the books they love in various genres and geographies.
But not all book bloggers -- or book tours -- are created equal. That's where LSBBT comes in to your marketing plan. LEARN MORE.
Dazzle with a display ad on our website or in our newsletter -- or send an eBlast
Online banner ads, slide shows, animated gifs, and other display ads are great ways to draw attention to your book launch or event notice. LEARN MORE.
Let us share your press release or highlight your book, bookish event, or bookish business
If you have a forthcoming publication, consider boosting the title in our monthly Texas Books Preview. For everything else, our Sponsored News Briefs are the perfect platform to spread your good news, or take a spot in our newsletter and the SpotLIGHT is on you. LEARN MORE.
