KidsBuzz and BAMBOO PEOPLE Giveaway

Looking for a great way to share a book for children or teens with booksellers, librarians, and parents? Why not try KidsBuzz, the brainchild of Deborah Sloan (formerly director of marketing, promotion, advertising and publicity for Candlewick Press, Abbeville Press and Trafalgar Square)? Here's what KidsBuzz can do for you and your book:
KidsBuzz partners with successful online publications that target readers, bookclubs, booksellers and librarians: Shelf Awareness, DearReader.com and KidsBookClubBook.com. Your KidsBuzz notes will go directly to more than 370,000 readers, 3000 library systems (reaching over 10,000 librarians) and over 3000 booksellers. All of whom are currently subscribed to both newsletters. If you have a book appropriate for kids in grades 2 through high school, your book club note will go to more than 2,000 registered youth book clubs. KidsBuzz is for new and already published books. Think board and picture books. Think nonfiction and graphic novels. Think poetry, chapter and middle-grade books. And books for teens.
For example, here's the gorgeous graphic generated for my Bamboo People (thanks, Charlesbridge!) in today's Shelf Awareness:


And since the link isn't live on the graphic above, you may enter the contest to win one of 10 giveaways of Bamboo People here.

Did you check out the Kid's Buzz pricing? This is definitely a service for those who can spend the big bucks!

Sounds like it could be worthwhile for those in that level of affluence, though.

I see books in both Shelf Awareness and in Kid's Buzz's newsletter and usually visit at least one author's website as a result. I was able to get a SIGNED copy of Deb Heligman's Charles and Emma due to Kid's Buzz!!!!! The students think I'm some sort of guru! Thank you Kid's Buzz!
