Advertising on The Book Review Directory has been amazing. Ryan is truly wonderful to work with. He goes the second mile and advocates his clients like no other I’ve worked with. I highly recommend his services.” -Julieann Dove, author of Searching For Sarah


Here’s how the sidebar advertisement works:

Your book’s cover or provided advertisement image will be placed along one of the two right sidebars (whichever is higher up) of every page. Clicking on that image will take the reader to your book’s Amazon page (or market of your choosing) or website. The positioning of top-to-bottom is static, does not rotate, and is first come first serve. When an advertising spot “above” yours expires, then yours bumps up to that spot. The images are approx. 170×240 and can be resized for you.

Your advertisement doesn’t necessarily need to be about writing or book related services.


“I’ve used both the longer editorial and the paid display ad services and have found everything BRD does to be exceptional and well worth the money. I’m very pleased with the end result. I highly recommend BRD to all authors and readers, and will use again. 5 out of 5 stars, no doubt.” – M.J. Roberts, author of Rock Hard: Chord Brothers Series

  • I reserve the ability to turn down or refuse advertisements or images that I don’t feel are a good fit for this website.
  • No erotica will be accepted.
  • While exposure is guaranteed, a certain number of sales are not guaranteed. The mileage can vary depending on the type of book/service, description, and quality of the cover/image.
  • Cover images and/or descriptions regarding nudity, adult descriptions, or vulgar content will likely be turned down.
