I see several Christmas in July celebrations each year. I don’t know if it is recollections of cooler weather to beat the heat or the lull in holidays between Independence Day and Labor Day, but they seem to pop up every now and then.
My local bakery does a Christmas in July cookie campaign, which I love. I’m so used to certain cookies only around the holidays, but it is such a treat to have them in the middle of the summer. And really, who would want to have their oven on in this heat?
Well, it isn’t a Christmas in July celebration, but Bookmasters is offering a July Holiday Bundle for promoting your books. And though it is hot, that isn’t really the reason we are running the packages. Now is actually the perfect time to start planning your holiday promotions so that you have time to hit all lead times and deadlines.
Let consumers and book buyers know that your title is here and ready for the holiday season. AtlasBooks has tailored the July Holiday Bundle to maximize book buyer and consumer interest. Don’t let your title sit out during the prime buying season!
