Begin with logging into your BookLife Profile.


Once logged in, choose the project you want to promote.

On the project's landing page, you'll see three boxes towards the top with promotional opportunities.  Mouse over the button in the center which says, "Advertise and Promote Your Book." 

Mousing over it will reveal a larger box with details about the PW Select--and a blue button that says "Promote your book!"  Click that button.

This leads to a form that asks you to provide some additional information about your book and shipping information for the copy of Publishers Weekly in which your book will be promoted. 

Once you've completed all of the required information, you'll see at the bottom of the form a blue button that says, "Enter Payment Information."  Click this button.
