  • Kirkus Catalogue (1 of 8 slots) - A one-eighth page advertisement in a full color catalog distributed to Kirkus’ database of industry influencers which includes librarians, publishers, booksellers, book buyers and decision makers.
  • Kirkus Magazine (1 of 8 slots)- Get more print visibility for your book with a black-and-white advertisement within the pages of the Kirkus Reviews magazine. Make your book one of the eight titles advertised in the page.
