Since there are no specific category sections, placement is at my discretion except for the Inside Cover and Premium. I will reserve the right to consider the magazine sold-out on any given month. And it will be clearly stated here, and on the front page when that happens. Contact me at UncagedBooks@gmail.com for more information. Advertising Policies:
- The material to be advertised, must be author or book related. Editing, proofing or promotional services are fine, if this service is geared towards authors. Uncaged reserves the right to reject any content not following these guidelines and the customer refunded.
- The advertising must be PG/PG-13 related, even if the book is not. We don’t discriminate books of any nature, but Issuu’s policies prevent anything else.
- If Uncaged is to design the ads, the materials must be received in a timely matter, and at least 10 days before the first of the month that the advertisement is intended.
- If Uncaged designs your ad, you may use it on your own personal websites and social media, but it cannot be used in another magazine publication other than Uncaged.
In exchange, Uncaged will place the ad in the issue it’s intended to be in, and send links when the issue goes live.
*Advertising is subject to change at any time. Advertising interviews and showcases have nothing to do with featured authors. Those are chosen by Uncaged, and is a free service. See Reviews/Features Info for more information, or feel free to email with questions. Ad examples – click to bring up full size.
