Product Description
Taerak's Void
(Book One of Fantastica)
A new series by multiple award winning author, M. R. Mathias

After finding a strange medallion and some maps with markings that no one in his village can understand, Braxton Bray decides to take it all to the Hall of Scholars in the kingdom's capital. But greed is everywhere. Braxton and a tough young female caravan guard named Nixy are forced to run for their lives, for someone else wants what Braxton found and is willing to go to great lengths to take it from him.

With a hefty, kingdom wide, bounty on their heads, not even the great wizards of the Sorcerious can help them. Left with nothing but each other, Braxton and Nixy have no choice but to get on a ship and go on an adventure that will take them places they would have otherwise never imagined. Elves, dwarves, giant gothicans, and trolls, treacherous forests on distant shores, love, death, terror, and magic all await...

What is ASIN? I know ISBN, but ASIN is new to me.

The ASIN is the unique identifier that Amazon assigns to each of its products. You can find it by going to your book's Amazon page, and searching for 'ASIN.'

It's a ten-character string of letters and numbers. For Kindle books, they start with the letter "B."

Many thanks to Harvey et al for featuring my novel The Haircut, a New Year's Tale as a freebie today.  I started the free promo on KDP yesterday, just to be sure, and so far more than 1,000 US takers, and 146 in the UK plus a smattering elsewhere. I think that's pretty good, and am hoping it will result in some additional reviews, and maybe a few purchases of my other book.

I really appreciate the opportunity!
Donna

Hi Harvey, I'm interested in promoting my title Chameleon any time between tomorrow through 2/28/13 during which time it will be free. (At the same time, my title Rippler will also be free.) Do you have any spotlight availability 2/25-2/28? I'd love to buy that if it is available. Thanks! (Phoenix sent me your way.)
Cheers,
Cidney

I'm interested in signing up for a spotlight, but since the book was free about 20 days ago, I wonder if I should wait before signing up? Does it make any difference whether the book has been free before or not?

We don't have any restrictions on that. I think it makes sense to not have a free and a paid promotion for the same book too close together... but I would say that as long as you don't have another free day coming up quickly, it should be okay.

The situation you want to avoid is to have a paid promotion, and then a few days later have a free book promotion for the same book... that's asking for a bunch of returns! But that's not your situation.
