Fancy seeing the cover of your book on a billboard, bus stop, subway/metro station? Think it’s impossible? Too expensive? What if I told you, you could get two posters for your online advertising for the low price of £15. Here are four posters done by Gary Walker of Look 4 Books.
A Shadow in the Past
Nineteen-year-old Sarah Shand finds herself thrust back into the past. There she struggles to keep her real identity from a society that finds her comments and ideas strange and her speech and actions forward, unlike Victorian women. When Sarah verbally confronts confining social practices, including arranged marriages, powerful enemies commit her to a lunatic asylum. After falling in love with the handsome Laird of Weetshill, Robert Robertson, she must decide whether to find her way back to her own time or to remain in the past with him.
The Consequences Collection
The Consequences Collection is an eclectic compilation of twelve stories ranging from non-fiction through creative non-fiction to pure fiction, in prose and poetry.
The story of a Scottish Home Child is based on fact and told from the child’s point of view; The Mystery Woman of Kinettles is a non-fiction article on the appearance and subsequent disappearance of a woman’s body near the Wellington County House of Industry (Poor House) in 1879 Southwestern Ontario.
Some of these stories are lighter than others, and some might even beg you to leave the lights on.
Gary’s posters are unique to each book which makes them even more popular with the authors he supports. The two below are the most recent ones he did for me.
From a touch of medieval…
to a modern setting…
You can see more of Gary’s work on pinterest or on his Books and Life blog.

All look wonderful, but I love the Shadows of the Past poster on the building. It looks so festive.
Good advice, Melanie. I have to remember this for when my own book is published!
First book, Deb? I can tell you that holding your book for the first time is wonderful.
What a neat idea, Melanie. Wow! We’re always looking for something new. This could be it. Love the pics.
Thanks Janet! When I asked Gary to do the two most recent ones for A Shadow in the Past, I didn’t offer any ideas. Basically, it was have at ‘er. And what a beautiful job he did! Not sure if you’re on Pinterest but you can see a huge array of the virtual posters/billboards he’s done for people there. I’m pretty sure if you click on the link in my post it will work whether you’re a pinner or not.
What a cool idea! Those look great! As my book gets closer to release, I may have to look into that… 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
