Focused Exposure in the Teen Market

YA Books Central places your valuable advertising in front of your specific target audience. Given our unique focus, your targeted teen advertising will be seen by more potential customers--tweens and teens who love to read, as well as educators, parents and librarians.

YA Books Central was founded in 1998 by (now) author Kimberly Pauley. Since that time it has experienced steady growth and is widely recognized as one of the leading teen literature sites on the Internet. Content is added to the site on a daily basis, including book reviews from published authors, teachers, and librarians.

Please note that only targeted advertisements are accepted; that is, you must be advertising something topically relevant to young adults or children. In addition, only a limited number of ads are available per month, so please contact us as soon as possible if you wish to coordinate your ad with a launch date or specific time period.

"Advertising on YABC was a wonderful experience for me. They were flexible, quick to respond and most importantly, incredibly effective. Compared to other high-visibility sites, YABC's rates were incredibly reasonable, and traffic to my website increased 36% during my ad's run. I couldn't be happier!" ~ Saundra Mitchell, author of SHADOWED SUMMER and THE VESPERTINE

"When I want to get my books in front of teen readers, YABC is the place to advertise. With an entire social network built around YA books, how can you go wrong?" ~ Myra McEntire, author of HOURGLASS, TIMEPIECE, and INFINITYGLASS.

Rates and Specifications

We offer several online advertising options that will prominently expose your products directly to teen readers. Contact us for pricing. Rates assume client-furnished ads to the correct specifications ready for insertion, otherwise ad design and production fees may apply. Due to the overwhelming request for ad space on YABC, campaigns must be paid for in advance to reserve space. Campaigns cannot be refunded once the campaign start date has passed.
