Partners in Crime

Publishers! Authors! Let’s work together. There are several ways we can help you get your message out to crime fiction lovers around the world.

With Crime Fiction Lover, you can meet audiences where they are. We have a website, which is optimised for smartphones and tablets.

Then there is our dedicated social media following on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

And we have a newsletter with a growing readership.

As you can see on our homepage, a range of advertising positions is available on the site. They include billboard, leaderboard and three-square sets. Advertising space is usually in high demand so it’s a good idea to contact us about it well in advance. A takeover option including full-screen background is also possible.

The Crime Fiction Lover Awards

We are currently looking for brands and organisations interested in sponsoring our awards in 2023. This is a great way to engage with our audience – our awards are reader-driven and highly participatory, with plenty of opportunities to contribute and join the conversation. Here’s the site content relating to the 2022 awards.

Social media support

In addition to our site, we have a large and dedicated following on Twitter and Facebook. We can help you start conversations with the crime fiction lover community in a coordinated and effective way and help you share your message with the right people in the right voice.

Supported content

A great way to talk to our audience is through a guest post, interview or preview on our site via our Partners in Crime programme. If you feel we’re like minded and you have content that’s relevant to crime fiction lovers, let’s talk!

The Rap Sheet

Our weekly newsletter contains the latest crime fiction book releases as well as links to the latest new content on our site. Advertising and promotional opportunities are available within the The Rap Sheet, reaching the deepest and most dedicated tranche of our audience.

Custom packages

These methods of reaching crime fiction lovers can be combined in different ways depending on your campaign.

For more information about our audience including traffic, demographics and social media numbers, have a look at our media kit.
