Hi Harvey - I've tried to register my book on the Free Book promo at the link above but it repeatedly tells my ASIN number is incorrect  B004J4W024.  Could you tell me what the problem is please. The number is correct.  I wanted to register for 23 & 24 November.
Thanks

I just tried it with your ASIN and it works for me - - just make sure there are no blank spaces before or after the ASIN when you copy it in. Let me know if that helps!

Hi Harvey!

How far out can we book a spotlight promo? The second book in my series is coming out in early January, and the first is currently $0.99 with strong reviews, but I'd like to wait to spotlight it until right before (or when) the second book comes out.  I have a free short story that ties in between them as well. If I can schedule it for right after the holidays (once everyone has opened their Kindles from Santa, LOL), this would be perfect!

Thanks,
Kendra Highley

Hi, Kendra,

You can schedule them as far ahead of time as you wish! When you get to the order form, there'll be a field for "Instructions". Just put in there which dates you prefer. Right now we have a few days booked for December, but January is open for the most part.

Thanks!

Interesting --the order form only asked for my ASIN....so I don't know where/how to post the instructions. I'm guessing someone will be in touch? Payment went through okay...

Just wanted to post a thank you to the KB blog/FB page for their free promo of my free book yesterday. I had filled out a ton of forms for other sites, but KB was the ONLY one that did a free promo of my book. I can't imagine how poor of a free day I would have had without it.

Once you click the "Pay" button, you'll see a page with an 'Instructions' field.

No problem, though, we've already sent the email. Thanks!

Dear Harvey,

I just signed up, before seeing that you have no openings until December. I had chosen a November date. Can you let me know what's available (or not available) in December and January? Hope this isn't too confusing. I signed up for the $20 promotion.

The payment for this will read "EFT Consultations." My writing name is C. M. Barrett.

I'll definitely be signing up for this on my next free promo day. I don't have the three reviews yet! First day. There is no otherwise. Thanks for the great resource.

Hi Harvey!  I sent in my form to go free over Xmas....I know that's a popular time, but you didn't say that xmas was filled up or closed, so I'm hoping I'll be an early bird and that will get my book in line for being featured as a freebie on one of those days, (pretty please!).

Right now, I just make the requirements, (3 reviews, 4.7) and I'm hoping that none of my reviews get captured by the Amazon Review Remover Gremlin that is hitting so many of us.  In general, I look forward to gaining reviews, but now I have to worry about losing them, and even though my reviews are all legit and from strangers, authors are losing legit reviews, and being on the brink of your requirements makes me a little nervous. 

Anyway, the blog looks fantastic, thanks!

Hi, yes, shouldn't be a problem - but you're right that it's smart to book early, especially for the popular days around Christmas time. You'll get a confirmation email shortly.

Yes, just note that in the Instructions field when you book - so that we can pull those reviews from the co.uk site. Thanks!

Thanks Harvey, just paid for a spotlight day for High Road To Tibet - Travels in China, Tibet, Nepal and India in December. I assume I'll send you all the details about reviews, etc. when I get the confirmation email?
Thanks,
