About Us


We know that there are many challenges facing book publishers in the digital age and current climate. One of them is how your marketing and publicity activities can maximise exposure for all of the books you publish, at a time when budgets are tight or shrinking and market conditions are tough.

Whatever your precise challenges, our portfolio of digital marketing solutions can be tailored to meet your needs.

  • Our magazine website, Nudge, allows content created by you and your authors to be seen by more people than your website alone can reach
  • Our Real Readers service gets your books out to carefully selected book lovers, generating review coverage and word-of-mouth
  • Our e-mail marketing reaches thousands of people every week
  • Our book reviews are independent and well respected
