All First Five Pages Reveals, spotlights, reviews, and guest posts come
with one Facebook and one Twitter announcement on the day of post. They

First Five Pages Blog.
1. The First Five Pages Reveal
The move that made us famous! To submit your story to appear as a First Five
Pages Reveal, contact us.
We'll ask you to send your work as a Word Document (.doc or .docx). The document needs to be in Times New Roman
font, size 12 and single-spaced. You may send up to the first
five pages of the story. The idea is to provide a teaser for readers to
entice them into purchasing your book.
Please also send any images you wish have to posted with your story,
along with any videos and links where readers can purchase your book.
You may request specific dates for your First Five
Pages Reveal, but the slots
fill quickly, so be sure to get with us in plenty of time. We'll respond
promptly with our next available day for you and give you additional
information at that time.
We strongly recommend you purchase the Book Advertising Grab Bag ($5) for extra exposure for your First Five Pages Reveal.
All First Five Pages Reveals are subject to review. We reserve the right to cancel a post at any time for any reason.
The First Five Pages will be happy to host any giveaway you'd like to offer. We advertise the giveaways in several groups and on our Facebook and Twitter accounts. People generally share the posts, so the word spreads easily. If you're interested in doing a giveaway, contact us.
From time to time, The First Five Pages will do mass giveaways. If you'd like to be on the mailing list to receive notification of these giveaways, please contact us and let us know, so we can add you.
By increased demand, we've decided to include the ever-popular Spotlight.
To schedule a spotlight for a specific date, please contact us well in advance. If there's no specific date, then contact us to request to send your materials and we'll put you in for the next available slot.
Spotlights include up to three (3) images. One of the images must be the cover. Please also include where-to-buy links and a blurb OR sneak peek (not both). The blurb/sneak peek must not exceed 250 words. You may also include any trailers or videos, but please limit them to three (3) or less.
We strongly recommend you purchase the Book Advertising Grab Bag ($5) for extra exposure for your Spotlight.

Unfortunately, not every request will elicit a review, but every review that is given will be an honest review. From time to time, this review may not be a good one. However, it will always be cordial and will always have the goal of helping you in mind. It will never be rude or hurtful.
