Originally founded to promote the work of memoir coauthor Anika Hanisch, we now serve a wider list of Authors with both fee-based services and grassroots referral swaps. Marketing your own work feels grueling. But you don’t have to go it alone anymore!

Fee-based retailer placement and grassroots promotion swaps – Third Path can assist with conventional fee-based bookseller placement, billed as an hourly monthly package and guided by your personal placement goals. If you’re just starting out, our co-marketing swaps might be more appropriate. It’s a great way to get to know our community and it’s totally free!
