Horror Author Marketing

Are you a horror author with a book coming out and looking to make a big splash? Do you already have a published book that isn’t selling as well as you’d hoped? Are you an emerging, yet-to-be-published author trying to make a name for yourself?

Unfortunately, most publishers have very limited funds for marketing. Plus, not everyone who self-publishes has the know-how, connections, time, and/or energy to promote themselves. So why not let Denver Horror Collective (DHC) do it for you?

After publishing three popular (i.e. best-selling, award-winning and nominated, critically-acclaimed) anthologies, DHC has cracked the code for effectively and AFFORDABLY getting books out into the horror fiction landscape.

With our 5-tier system, DHC’s HORROR AUTHOR MARKETING has a plan for every horror author’s budget at a fraction of the cost of your average publicist.

Don’t let months to years of hard work spent writing and getting published go to waste from lack of exposure. Sign up for HORROR AUTHOR MARKETING today! (No, you do NOT have to live in Colorado!)
