In perusing the interwebz in order to promote an upcoming free day on Amazon for Bad Traffick, I came across several more places that you can list your book for free. Some also offer guaranteed placement for a nominal fee. I’ve decided to use both paid and free sites, and I’ll write a post on my results after the promotion runs on January 19. In the mean time, here are some of the sites I found: (as with all listing sites, MAKE SURE your book is actually going to be free on the day you list)
Ask David This is a cool site I discovered that has you list your book, website, social media links, book trailer, etc. all for a simple link-back to the site. You don’t even have to do that, but it will take a bit longer for your book to show up. And really, isn’t helping those who help you what it’s all about?
Free Kindle Books and Tips This is a site run by Michael Gallagher who is a Top 10 Reviewer for Amazon. He reviewed Bad Spirits and listed the freebie on his site a while back and my downloads increased significantly. At first I had no idea who he was (I had submitted to several free sites and didn’t realize he ran FKBooks&Tips), but a bunch of folks (145+) clicked on his review as helpful, and I quickly realized how lucky I was to have him review the book.
The Frugal E-Reader This is a popular site that lists Kindle books under $9 and has some inexpensive promo options.
The Author Marketing Club I just joined this site, and from what I’ve seen, it’s full of great ways to promote your book. Hmmm. Possibly a post for the future on the results I get from posting my book for review…You have to sign up, but it’s free.
Indie Book Promo This site has both paid and free options for promo. Haven’t used this one before, but am going to for the 1/19 free day. We’ll see what happens. I’ve heard good things.
Pixel of Ink One of the biggest and most-used sites.
EReader News Today I’ve had stellar luck with these guys. Don’t be afraid to show ’em some luv if they post your book.
There are too many of these sites to list here, but these are a great start. Good luck on all things promo!
To put in the ‘very cool’ category, I was just interviewed on Blood Writes, and Jen picked BAD TRAFFICK as one of her Top 5 Indie Picks for 2012! Click HERE to read the full article. Find out which I find easier to write: action or sex? Hint: it’s all about the grenades…
