Frequently Asked Questions - Authorhouse and Book Promotion

Posted in: ,
I'm from India. I was looking to publish my poetry book with Authorhouse(UK). Just wanted to know if I can rely on them with regards to the promotion of my book. As this is a poetry book so what are your suggestions- are there enough poetry lovers. Can I take this step ahead?

Looking forward to hearing from you.



Thanks for your mail. I think there are enough lovers of poetry but I have to tell you that Authorhouse will not promote your book. You have to do all the marketing and publicity for your book if you go with them. However they will make sure the book is available in many places so that you can reach a much wider audience, in India, America, Europe and beyond.

Good luck with your writing.



  1. Really important question. Great answer.

  2. Direct and straight to the point!

  3. no shaking, love this simple direct post.

  4. Hi Myne, I've seen the book A Heart to Mend. Think I'll put this one on my to-read list now that I know you're one of the SHE WRITERS.

    Stopping by with the bloggers' balling. Hope you enjoy the ball and visit around too.

  5. Hi Myne,

    This information you provided is very important for many new authors. I was doing a lot of research and was thinking of going with Authorhouse as well, but chose Booktango their sister site instead. I have learned that there is a lot of promotion and marketing involved from the author's side and none from the publisher's side. I am thankful they provide many avenues to make the book available in numerous locations, but it is truly hard work...and a labor of love.
