Cross-promote your books through newsletters

Connect with other authors in your genre and share each other's stories to reach a wider audience together. Cross-promotions come in 2 forms:

Newsletter Swaps - I will promote your book in my next newsletter and vice versa (you promote my book in your next newsletter).
Group Promos - You and a group of authors promote a single landing page showing all your books together.

Think your mailing list is too small? Don't worry! Lots of authors have been in your position and used StoryOrigin to go from 0 subscribers to 1,000+ using group promotions and newsletter swaps.

Why do authors recommend StoryOrigin?

Is there a 5 star rating system on this? Because StoryOrigin is at least 6 stars. At least! I've used the other platforms... and none of them approach the flexibility and power of StoryOrigin

I used to use several sites and groups to facilitate things like newsletter swaps, multi-author book promos, reader magnets, and reviews, but I can do it all and better on StoryOrigin.

I love StoryOrigin. I've used other sites for promotions and newsletter swaps but this one is easier and more author-focused. Highly recommend for new or serious authors.

StoryOrigin changed my life, and it's the BEST tool that actually works with increasing sales, subscribers, and reaching new readers.

... compared to a lot of similar sites designed to help authors, StoryOrigin has the best UI, the most features and a great community of authors.
