Will SAGE be attending a particular conference?
Do inform your editor if you are attending conferences, as they will be able to confirm, and indeed they may be attending even if SAGE doesn’t have a table or booth booked. Our conference plans are constantly under review, but we have often found prioritising other activities can lead to more effective results in terms of marketing your book.
Can SAGE provide flyers to help me promote my book?
Yes, you are able to customise and download PDF flyers directly from your book’s webpage on the SAGE website, via the ‘Download flyer’ link. As part of our environmental mission to minimise paper wastage, we encourage the use of digital flyers.
I have a question about sales and royalties
Authors receive royalty statements annually in October, unless otherwise agreed in your contract. Your statements will break out print and digital unit sales, and revenue, as well as your royalties share. Revenue share from any content included in sales of library products like SAGE Research Methods will also be shown. For specific queries about royalties, please contact email@example.com.
Can SAGE provide free copies of my book for marketing?
In addition to your contractual author or contributor copies, SAGE may provide a limited number of print or digital marketing copies for review purposes, for example in a peer-reviewed journal, or in support of a specific event. Please contact your Marketing Manager with details to enquire. Remember, authors are eligible to receive a 25% discount across any SAGE title, and 35% off your own book. To place an order, contact our Customer Services Team at firstname.lastname@example.org, or if based in North America, contact email@example.com.
Please take a look through our guidelines for authors [PDF] on setting up Author Pages on Amazon. This is a free service from Amazon that can help book buyers connect and learn more about you, and may help improve discoverability of your book in search results. You may need to first set up an author profile with Amazon through Author Central.
More generally, our guidance on how to promote your own book [PDF] may also be helpful.
Can SAGE help with my book launch?
Your author or contributor contract with SAGE will indicate your provision of complimentary copies of your book, for you to use as you wish. As a SAGE author you are also entitled to 35% off your own book, if you would like to buy additional copies please contact Customer Services. If you are planning to buy 10+ copies, or would like to resell copies at your event, please see below about bulk ordering. For instructions on how to download flyers to promote your book at events, please see above. For any additional support, please contact your editor.
Please contact your editor.
I'm interested in bulk ordering copies of my book (10+), whom should I contact?

Can SAGE provide social media support for my book?
If you are planning a book event or launch and would like social media support in driving awareness, please contact your Marketing Manager at least two weeks prior. Generally speaking, SAGE social channels aim to build awareness and drive engagement with the full breadth of our publishing, whether directly or indirectly.
