BookTalk.org has long recognized the need for authors to be able to effectively promote their books independently of publishers or advertising agencies. On this page we provide all of the information you need to get started, and have your banner ad appear in the location(s) of your choice on our website. You may also want to read our Promote Your Book on BookTalk.org page for other ideas on how to promote your book to BookTalk.org members and visitors.

The first step is to decide on the ad locations and durations that you prefer. These choices are explained in the table below along with pricing and purchase buttons. When you've decided on the best positioning for your ad, the next step is to submit payment through the secure PayPal buttons below. If you don't have a PayPal account, you can still use your credit card to checkout securely with PayPal without even having to sign up for PayPal.

We require most banner ads on BookTalk.org to be 380x160 pixels in size. Settling on one size allows us to better position your ads throughout our site. If you can create your own 380x160 banner, you can email it to us at chris@booktalk.org, along with where you would like the banner ad to link to. We recommend linking to your book on Amazon.com because everyone knows how to place book orders there. But the choice is yours.

If you don't have the ability to create your own banner, and would like us to create one for you, we are happy to do so. We charge an additional $50 for this service, which can be paid using the bottom "Banner Design Fee" payment button. We have created hundreds of banners for authors over the years, and you can view a selection of past and present banner ads on our banner ad portfolio page.

We handle the ad process manually to make sure your ad is done professionally. It isn't automated. So we must receive both your ad payment and a separate email with your banner image, if you're creating your own banner. If you have us create your banner ad, we will talk to you by email about your preferences so that we can create the look you want.

Additional Information


The following pages/ads work a little differently:

Featured Books area on our Home page
Featured Books
Hot New Books by Emerging Authors

To advertise in the above 3 ad slots all you need to do is send us your payment, along with a link to your book on Amazon.com and we'll handle the rest. These ads display your book cover image, title, author name and whether your book is fiction or non-fiction. No other text. New ads are added to the top left position of each page.

If you have any questions or need help getting started, send us an email at chris@booktalk.org and we'll be happy to assist.

Thank you for supporting BookTalk.org with your ad!

• Banner Design Fee



If you don't have the time or ability to create your own 380 x 160 banner one of our skilled graphic designers can create it for you. The Top Banner on Home and Top Banner on Forums ads are the two ads that require a custom banner to be created. All other ads simply use your book cover image.

If you're a graphic designer and want to earn $50 for each banner you design for BookTalk.org please visit our CONTACT page and send us a message and be sure to include links to examples of your graphic design work.

Examples of past ads our designers have created

After paying for your Top Banner on Home or Top Banner on Forums ad just click on the link to the right to make a one time $50 Banner Design Fee payment.



• Miscellaneous Payment



Use the PayPal link to the right for any and all other payments.
