Barnes & Noble Hosts Review Day for PubIt!

Barnes & Noble’s self-publishing service PubIt! is hosting its first Review Day from 9 a.m. EDT until 8 p.m. EDT today. You can visit the site’s Facebook page and post an elevator pitch about your PubIt! book to a carefully selected list of book bloggers.

Check it out: “Under each blogger that’s a good fit for your work, post 2 sentences describing your book. Be sure to include your genre, length of work, and your pen name if it is different from your Facebook identity. Please note that you can only pitch books already published through PubIt! Please include the link to your product page. Bloggers interested in your work have been asked to reach out to you directly (through a direct message on Facebook) by Tuesday.”

If you need help crafting a great pitch, follow this link and this link. Once you’ve posted your pitch, stop by GalleyCat’s New Books page and share your new or upcoming book with our readers as well.
