Another book birthday and Ad experiments #fantasy #fantasypromo

Yes, I know it’s another book birthday post, but I’m super proud of The Sentinel’s Alliance reaching it’s first birthday today. It was such a special feeling to finally finish publishing the trilogy and receiving such wonderful reviews from readers and book bloggers. Now I just need readers to find it!

With that in mind I’ve been experimenting with Ad’s over the weekend, trying to find the right combo for Facebook ads to promote the box set.

Here’s a couple I’ve designed, let me know what you think.

I’ve also played with a few for the first book.

What do you think about promo’s, is it better to focus on the first book in a series or the whole box set?

I still have lots of work to do making my ad’s but I’d love some feedback at this early stage and before I start actively promoting it.


Have you read the box set? Would you consider leaving reviews on Amazon / Goodreads / Bookbub or where ever you feel comfortable posting them? I love to share quotes from reviewers and I hope to pick a few to add to my ads.

Thanks for your time.

  1. You need to keep the text in the ad minimal and make the image pull the reader in. Youโ€™ve got loads of space for text to go with the ad too. I like the first of the book one ads but you can test them all against each other. Great start

  2. Happy book birthday and sorry I’ve been so slow to read the book you sent me, I got so thrown off by this whole virus issue that I have barely read anything in the last three months :(. Luckily I’ve managed to get into the reading groove and your book’s is the next one I’m now going to read, after I do a bit of catch up on the story first. ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ll leave a review for the box set too when I finish this one (I’ll even do a box set review on my blog ๐Ÿ™‚ ). Btw if at any time you want to do anything to promote your books on my blog, guest posts, etc. let me know, I’m doing more guest posts these days and I’ll always be happy to help promote your work. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love that purple colour in the image in the first advert but if I’m honest when scrolling down it was the ad with the woman holding the staff that caught my eye the most. I do prefer an ad of the whole series rather than just the first book but I don’t think that matters so much. Like someone else said the image pulls readers in first and then a short description can really help make someone want to buy ๐Ÿ™‚ As for FAcebook ads, I’m afraid I have no idea what works best I’m not on Facebook myself much anymore. Good luck with the ads when you do get them out though, I hope you gain some new readers ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thanks for the comments re the ads.
      I can’t wait to see what you think of the conclusion to the trilogy, but no pressure on timing – this year has been hard and looking after yourself is the most important thing.
      I’d love to feature on your blog again. Maybe we can time it to fit with your review.

      • Thank you, I am hoping to get the book read and reviewed quickly but it’s been a strange few months and it might take me longer (it took me two months to read a short 250 page novel when this all started, lol).

        That sounds like great timing, I’ll let you know when I plan to get my review up and we can work out some kind of guest post/feature then. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

        This year’s been a strange one and I think we all need to look after ourselves. I hope you and your family are doing okay after everything that’s happened? โค โค
