Soon after Disappearing in Plain Sight was published, I decided that I wanted to pay for one quality ad. I chose BC Book World. Founded in 1987, this magazine has over 900 distribution outlets. The quarterly magazine can be found in bookstores, libraries, schools, and is given away free of charge on the BC Ferries. It reaches 100,000 readers per issue. BC Bookworld is Canada’s largest circulation independent publication about books.
The magazine recently opened up what they call Quickie Ads – A Community Bulletin Board for Independents. These ads are small but priced right for independents. The ad designers are awesome. I gave them the info and they went to work to create a beautiful ad for me.
On my recent trip over to Vancouver on a BC Ferry, I picked up a free copy of BC Bookworld and flipped to the last page. There larger than life was my ad. The experience was totally thrilling. It made me feel like I had arrived as a BC author.
