Resources for Cozy Writers
We'll be adding to this section with more resources for writers as I find them. If you see your site here and would like us to add a picture/details, please contact us and let us know. If your site is not listed here, but you offer resources that would help cozy mystery authors, please let us know that, too!
Cozy Mystery Facebook Ad Cost Report
Ad Costly provides reports on the costs and logistics of running Facebook ads for targeted groups. This report is specifically for Cozy Mysteries.
Once you get your book up on Amazon KDP, B&N, Kobo, and/or other sides, you'll want to make sure it's listed on Goodreads. If you publish on KDP, it should automatically transfer, but you can help the process along and/or keep the info on the site up to date. You can also run ads and/or giveaways on the site.
Written Word Media
If your books are priced under 2.99USD, you can put your books in an ad with Bargainbooksy. If you're running a free sale, you can run an ad with Freebooksy. Or, read the Written Word Media blog for tips on advertising.
Bookbub's newsletters get your book ads in reader's sights. You can pay to post ads on their website or you can submit your book for a featured ad deal, but they only select a handful of submissions.
Great Escapes Book Tours
This website provides cozy mystery tours for free, though donations to the site give extra ad space on the site. Lori organizes painless tours with multiple bloggers helping promote your book. Email her to book your spot at least 3 months in advance.
Get your ARC's into the hands of readers who are willing to give honest reviews. BookSirens is a community of 15k+ reviewers and influencers. They have a section specifically for cozy mysteries!
Cozy Mysteries Unlimited
The site lists only cozy mysteries and allows readers to keep track of the books they are reading and ones they want to read. You can send an email through the site's contact form to send requests to add your book to the site.
