How To File Press Releases

To file a press release onto our content management system you firstly need a booktrade.info user account and then need to sign into your account. See the box on the right of each page.

Once you're logged in to your account you'll see in the My Account box a link: "File Press Release" - click on the link.

You'll then be asked to choose a category for your press release. If no suitable category exists please use "Miscellaneous Announcements" and email us separately to suggest a new category of news.

You'll now be given a page asking for the Subject (i.e. title) of your press release, the text of your press release, an embargo date (defaults to now if none is needed) and any external URL you want the press release to link to.

You can't use HTML in the press release, but you can use tags with curly brackets to add some basic formatting, for example:

{strong}Bold Text{/strong}
{em}Italicised Text{/em}
{ul} {li}Bullet Point {li}Bullet Point {li}Bullet Point {/ul}

  • Bullet Point
  • Bullet Point
  • Bullet Point

{blockquote}
Blocks of quoted material
{/blockquote}

When you've completed the form press "Submit" and the release will be provisionally filed and you'll be taken to a preview page. From this page you can choose to edit your press release or, once you're happy with it, you can release it.

Until you release your press release no one else can see it. Once released it may be visible to booktrade.info readers immediately if your permission level is high enough, or it will become visible as soon as one of our editors has approved it. In either case you may no longer be able to edit your work so please take care to ensure you're happy with what you've written before you confirm release.
