     This site offers one of the best advertising rates
in the Net's writing world.

Ads for the year are priced about what most sites charge for a single month.

This site focuses on writers, writing, reading, and retailing (on their corresponding pages); and accepts only ads for books and products that target those specific audiences. By doing that, visitors are assured that even the ads on this site will be interesting or provide excellent resources. Contact Carolyn Howard-Johnson by
e-mail for details. Ads with accompanying podcasts may be accommodated.

Please note that links on the resource pages are not paid advertising. All ads on this site are clearly marked as such with the notation, "Sponsoring Site" or "Sponsoring Ad."


Ad Rates:
Keeping It Simple and Frugal

It's only $40 for a display ad like the one for AllBooksReview above.
Advertisers may suggest pages they feel are most likely
to reach the audience of their choice.

Please note: Display ads are always comped with identical ads on one or more
pages of this Web site, at my discretion, but with your input.


Expert marketers tell us that a person must be exposed to a product (and, that includes writing services and books!) seven times before acting on the suggestion. They also tell us that visual ads work better than other kinds. Is your book and/or service for writers appearing where writers and readers are likely to see it?

Find at least one tip on writing, promotion
or tech on every page of this Web site.

Great Little Last-Minute Editing Tips for Writers

"I have been a professional writer 40 years, and am also a tenured full professor of journalism. Carolyn's Sharing with Writers newsletter is  most useful for me--and for my students. I emphasize to them that while research is 90% of writing, and the actual writing is about 10%, there's another 100% out there called promotion. Carolyn shows numerous ways to get the message to the mass media."
~Walter Brasch, author and educator
