Harvey,

I haven't yet received a confirmation for the free promo I requested for The Haircut on Feb. 14.  Just wanted to make sure it was still scheduled.  Thanks.

Yes it is! It's been really encouraging to see the interplay between our forum, our blog, and our FB page! And really nice to see people dropping in on all three venues.

Hi Harvey,

I'm helping to organize a group 99c sale (10 authors, 10 books), fantasy with love stories). We haven't fixed on a date yet, although we want to do it *before* Valentine's, since we figured everyone else will be doing *on* Valentine's. I didn't see any info on the blog for advertising a group promo. What would an ad like that cost, and would you have any slots still available say between Feb. 7 and Feb. 12?

Hi, Ruth,

We have been handling those as spotlight promotions, so the cost is $50.

February 8, 9, and 11 are available right now. Let me know and I can hold one of those for you if you wish - thanks!

Cool, Harvey! I can't commit yet, I have to get back to the group, but good to know there's something available and what it would cost.

Is Feb. 11th still available, Harvey? If so, I'd like to reserve it. And then I would need some instructions from you on how to sign up when it's a group promo rather than an individual book. :)

If the 11th is already taken, could you please reserve the 9th for me? I know this took a while, but trying to get 10 writers to agree on dates is pretty complicated ...

Yes, Feb 11th is open so I'll hold the 1pm Pacific slot for you on that date.

You can lock it in at this link, and just put "Various" for the ASIN:
http://kboards.com/blog-ads

After that, all I need is:
- the list of ASINs of the books being promoted
- a graphic image for the promotion, if you have one
- some text copy describing the promotion

From that, we can prepare a spotlight post and include clickable images of all the covers of the books in the promotion. We can also provide a link to an Amazon summary page listing all of the books.

Let me know if you have any questions on any of the above!

Harvey,

I'm interested in booking either a Discovery Promo for the newest book in my series or a Spotlight Promo for the series as a whole and am wondering which one has more/sooner availability?

Thanks!
