We believe that submissions should be separate from paid advertising. As always, we are open to submissions of excerpts from published novels, collections of stories or memoirs (with a maximum word count of 4,000). Submit the excerpt the usual way through the General Submission process. Whether or not we accept an excerpt is independent from any paid advertising on the site. But the PREVIEW FRIDAY slot will be reserved for submissions that are also advertised that day by a paid ad on the site. If you do not wish to pay for the ad, but we still accept your excerpt, it will run sometime mid week, but not on the PREVIEW FRIDAY slot.The PREVIEW FRIDAY ad includes:
• A headline, image (of the book cover), 100-word promotional copy and a link.
• It will run at the top of Column #2 (see diagram below) on the homepage for one week (Friday to Thursday). The excerpt will be posted on Friday only; the ad will be up for the following week.
• Three promotional tweets from @CommuterLit.
• A special PREVIEW FRIDAY image and notice in one Monday newsletter.
• One-month in CommuterLit‘s Bookstore
The cost is $50 plus HST.
Other Ad space available on CommuterLit
Building on the success of our PREVIEW FRIDAY ads, we have opened up more space on the site for display ads — not attached to any particular posting.
We have two ads spaces available, Ad Space A and Ad Space B (see diagram below).
Ad Space A costs $25 plus HST per week. This ad package includes a headline, image (of the book cover), 100-word promotional copy and a link, plus two promotional tweets.
Ad Space B costs $20 plus HST per week. This ad package includes a headline, image (of the book cover), 100-word promotional copy and a link, plus one promotional tweet.
Why the difference in price (other than one less tweet)? It’s in recognition that though both columns #2 and #3 are “above the fold” on a desktop or laptop screen, on a tablet Column #3 runs below Column #2. On a cell phone screen, only one column is visible, running in order #1, #2 and then #3.
