Author Spotlight Rates

About Author Spotlight

I’m offering paid placement for authors of mystery, thriller, and suspense books as an ad read during the “Author Spotlight” segment. This will be a short mid roll ad in the middle of the podcast. I will spotlight a maximum of two authors per segment. I will mention your name, your book title, and your website URL.

Sample Ad Read

This episode’s author spotlight features two authors. John Doe who writes political thrillers. His latest book BOOK NAME is out now. Learn more by visiting his website at JohnDoe.com and Jane Doe who writes psychological thrillers. Her latest book BOOK NAME is out now. Learn more by visiting her website at JaneDoe.com. I’d like to thank John Doe and Jane Doe for sponsoring this segment.

Author Spotlight Ad Cost

The cost is $25. That includes the ad read (see example above) and you’ll also be featured in the Author Spotlight page of the podcast website. If you’d like to be featured alone during the Author Spotlight segment the cost would be $40.

Leading Podcast

Meet the Thriller Author is one of the top podcasts for fans of mystery/thriller books. The biggest author names in the genre have been on the podcasts, including Dean Koontz (five times), Lee Child, Walter Mosley, Tess Gerritsen, Kyle Mills, Mark Greaney, and many others. It’s why every day authors and publicists from the big five publishing companies, as well as Thomas and Mercer, indie authors, and publishers reach out to be on the show. I can’t interview everyone. And I never charge to be interviewed, so the Author Spotlight is a great way for me to offer advertisement to support the podcast by letting listeners know about authors and their books.


If you’re interested in paid sponsorship in the Author Spotlight segment, fill out the form below. I do manually review each request to make sure your book will be a good fit for the podcast. You must be a thriller, mystery, suspense author. No other genres will be accepted and acceptance is solely up to me. If we’re a good fit, I will send you an invoice. I only accepted payment via PayPal.
