Endorsements

Endorsement for PR Campaign

“I have never enjoyed the release of a book as much as I have with Haus of Fables.

The PR boxes themselves were beautiful and tailored perfectly to the book which has stunning digitally printed edges. These were well received by the content creators involved in the campaign, who were hand-picked by Haus to best fit the genre. 

Everything from the custom-designed stickers to the bonus content booklet was designed and organized by the team at Haus, and the quality of everything speaks for itself. Seeing the delight and surprise as PR boxes reached content creators was such an amazing experience.

Communication throughout the entire process was fantastic, they answered all of my questions, worked with me on timelines and provided advice when needed. 

I cannot imagine releasing a book without the team now, and look forward to being able to work with them again!” 

~C. C. Davie, author of The Wytchling Chronicles

"Haus is a lifeline!

When I sat down with Haus, I was burned out. Decision fatigue, imposter syndrome, the works. Haus got it. They came into that meeting knowing I was a husk and knowing how to help. They were unfailingly professional and realistic. I don't think I've ever felt so seen, heard, and supported in a business meeting in my life. 

I was given a swathe of information, and while it wasn't all new, it all was specific to me, and it was explained so I really understood both the concepts I thought I'd known and also the new ones they introduced to me. All information was presented in priority order for me, and they chunked the topics so I understood the steps I would need to follow to accomplish various aims. When I signed off, I felt confident. I still feel confident, more than a month later. I'm still working my way steadily through the plan Haus helped to develop, and I've been able to do it in a way that's sustainable and authentic. It's been a very long time since the business of selling books has felt achievable, for me. Haus gave me the tools I needed, and the confidence to use them."

~Elisse Hay, author of the Something Wicked series

Endorsement for Marketing Guide

"Working with Haus of Fables was an absolute pleasure. Their team was not only professional and highly skilled but also incredibly kind and easy to collaborate with. They provided a thorough and insightful evaluation of my book, identifying marketable quotes and suggesting engaging scenes for artwork. Their advice on bonus scenes was particularly helpful. The final delivery exceeded my expectations and significantly boosted my confidence in my book. I would absolutely recommend Haus of Fables to any author looking to delve deeper into the marketable content of their work. It's easy to write the final line and think the hard part is over, but in truth, the marketing is just as difficult for many of us. Having this resource and the confidence in Sam and her team ahead of time, it was the one thing I knew I wasn't going to have to stress over. Additionally, the comprehensive list of quotes and scenes is so thorough, I will be able to use it for years and years to market and that makes the investment entirely worth it."

~Miranda Lyn, author of The Unmarked Witch duology

Author Expression of Interest Form

What is the difference between a PR Campaign and ARC management?

For a PR Campaign, the intention is exposure and finding readers by matching content creators to each specific book release. Our PR Campaign focus is content creation and reach.

For digital ARC management, our intention is to find enthusiastic readers and reviewers who match well with your book. Legally, we cannot require a review from the recipients of eARC’s, so we cast our net wide and aim for a significantly higher than average review rate (the publishing industry standard review rate for ARCs is 10%). 

Do you only work with AU/NZ authors, and only ship to AU/NZ content creators?

No! While we specialise in engagement and distribution of the PR boxes in the southern hemisphere, our eARC’s are distributed to international readers and we can post to the international bookish community.

We also have the capability to collab on a PR campaign with The Nerd Fam who will look after distribution in the US. This means we are able to access an international audience to ensure the best return on your investment. We know authors have global audiences they will want to reach, and we are happy to help.

Does a PR Campaign have to be for a new book release?

No! While the most common timing for a PR Campaign is for a new release, an existing title or series can absolutely benefit from this marketing strategy. A PR Campaign can reinvigorate your series and/or work to leverage an upcoming new milestone (e.g. cover refresh, audiobook, last book in a series or special edition release etc.).
