Why You Should Advertise in WELL READ Magazine



You’re supporting a female-owned small business.

Very small. It’s just me behind the scenes – Mandy Haynes, Author, freelance writer, and owner of three dogs write press.

My name is Mandy Haynes, and I am the creator, designer, editor in chief, and publisher of WELL READ MAGAZINE. I’m an Indie published author, a freelance writer for the Amelia Islander Magazine, Amelia Weddings, and owner of three dogs write press, llc.

I came up with the idea for this magazine as a fun and affordable way to support, promote, celebrate each other, share our stories, and give unpublished authors of all genres and backgrounds a place to see their work in print beside established authors.

It’s a safe and supportive community for all authors.

I do it all myself. You can’t believe how much fun I have putting the pages together and I depend solely on the money made from the ads to cover the costs of the distribution platform, software, website, and outside advertising for the magazine.

Every issue is packed with great books to add to your to be read list, incredible prose, poetry, and visual art submissions, interesting articles, and a few surprises.

Each issue of WELL READ Magazine receives an average of 7,000 monthly confirmed views on the Issuu site alone! The graphics of the individual ads are shared to eight book loving, supportive Facebook groups, as well as WELL READ’s social sites, which combined have 39K followers.

We have readers from all over the country checking in each month. Did you know that past issues are available and easily discovered on Issuu’s site? That means your pages are still active (and shareable) after the new issue comes out.

When you purchase an “ad/page” for $50, you get a full page with a live link to your website and a live purchase link. As a bonus, there are personalized individual gifs and graphics made of your book image (see three examples below – click here to see them with descriptions) and author photo if you choose to purchase a two page spread or more, with excerpts from your book description and/or blubs, bio, etc shared to eight additional FB bookish accounts and to WELL READ Magazine’s Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook sites – (that’s 39K potential viewers).

If you’d like to be included on WELL READ’s BETWEEN THE PAGES YouTube channel and/or Podcast,  I’ll edit your video for you, convert it to the different formats needed, create graphics with the cover of the issue you advertised in, and the image of your book. In the descriptions, I’ll add the book description from Amazon or Goodreads and a short author bio with a link to your website. 

The final recording will be sent to you for your approval before posting.

It’s easy! Just record a video on your computer, tablet, or phone (up to 10 minutes) of you introducing yourself, your book, and reading an excerpt – end with an invite for readers to follow you. The recordings will be a professional way to show your book off without having to do it yourself. 

There is strength in numbers – and you’ll be in the feed with the featured authors, the great interviews, and readings – and your graphic (with your information) will post to WELL READ’s Instagram account and good news group page.  You’ll also be able to use the finished project to cross promote on your website and social sites.
