Why Promote on Reading Middle Grade?
Each month, the blog gets at least 20,000 unique visitors and over 35,000 overall views, 90% of which are US-based readers. Teachers and librarians regularly return to this blog for trusted book lists and reviews.
Please note that as much as I am excited about supporting brands and authors, I will only promote books and products that I like and think would be a good fit for my audience. Thank you for understanding.
Reading Middle Grade offers a variety of promotional content on this blog and in my newsletter, including sponsored posts, cover reveals, paid book reviews, and sidebar advertising. If you’re interested in promoting a forthcoming or backlist title, please contact me at [email protected]. Advertising options start at $20 for authors.
Newsletter Ad $20
- My newsletter is the weekly email I send to over 1000 subscribers. It has a 47% engagement rate, which means over 500 people open it and click on links every week. Many of these readers don’t check my blog daily and are not on social media, so their only exposure to posts is via the newsletter. To get your book across to a new set of readers, start with this!
Sponsored Post $40
- Reading Middle Grade runs a variety of book list posts every week! You can choose to sponsor a themed book list, a readalike list, or even a list of Backlist Titles on my TBR, which I share every other month.
Author Interview/Guest Post $60
- Authors looking to reach out to a new audience can use this service. I generally prepare “Meet the Author” questions for a short interview on the site, which loyal readers can enjoy. The interview will also feature links to the author’s book, as well as social media and website links.
Please note that the prices above only apply to authors, not brands or organizations. Kindly contact me if you are a brand or organization.
While I deeply enjoy books, I have to admit that I am partial to certain genres. So, if you’re considering sending me an Advanced Readers Copy of your book, kindly take note of the information below:
Please note: I am currently NOT accepting unsolicited books from indie publishers/self-published authors for review without monetary compensation.
While I am especially interested in contemporary Children’s books — picture books, middle grade, YA — books by women and books by authors of African descent, I do not enjoy fantasy, books with magical realism or supernatural elements and erotica. As such, I do not accept those titles for review.
Finally, please, always send full information about your book in your email. You may find the format below of assistance:

I prefer physical copies wherever possible and I will read physical galleys before electronic ARCs. However, I also accept electronic ARCs where it is impossible to send hard copies. Please note that I live in Nigeria, should you be interested in sending physical galleys.
I look forward to hearing from you!
