For book marketing through email blasts, BookBub.com is still the heavy-hitter, but I also recommend FreeBooksy, BargainBooksy, Red Feather Romance, and NewInBooks.
They have options for wherever you are on your author journey, it's more affordable than BookBub and you are more likely to be accepted.
