Every author dreams that one day their books will go viral. It is the ultimate accolade of success. Having a book go viral tops getting published or even making the ever growing number of best seller lists. It is the elusive dream for the majority of authors, yet with the right foundation and approach to marketing the dream is more achievable than it ever has been.
As authors we all know the amazing sense of achievement that comes with publishing our first book and for a while we find ourselves basking in the ‘twilight zone’ of being a published author. Then comes that rude awakening when we find our book sales are nowhere near our expectations.
Fortunately there is much we can do to meet our dreams, but above all else we have to be visible and today that means a powerful social media presence combined with publishing knowledge that is always ahead of the curve. It simply isn’t enough to have a great book if your potential readers have never heard of it.
At BookViral we focus our energy on discovering new authors and those you may not have yet heard off, because this is where we excel and we are passionate about the books that shape the minds of readers across the world.
Our spotlight reviews are attracting thousands of new readers everyday and if you have written book that deserves the best in promotion we want to hear from you.

Each one telling its story so strongly, through the lives of superbly nuanced characters, that we not only forgive the brevity of Golvach’s words, but welcome the suspension of disbelief without question.

A riveting Victorian Romance, The Last Earl by Lara Blunte proves a literal tidal force in a genre which often suffers from a lack of originality. Beautifully written in prose that vividly capture Bluntes evocative setting, the mood is further augmented by a bewitchingly vibrant blend of emotion and subtle levity which provides timely relief from the mounting tension.These alone are reasons enough to the turn the pages, but what really sets Blunte's novel on a pedestal is her ability to imbue her pages with a sense of heady eroticism that relentlessly writhes beneath the surface.
