Big Al's Books & Pals 2014 Readers' Choice Awards: Young Adult Nominee

A ruthless murder and a stolen shipment of gold.

At school, sixteen-year-old Nikaia Wales endures the taunts of bullies who call her a “half-breed.” At home, she worries about how her family will react if she reveals her growing feelings for the quiet boy next door.

Those are soon the least of her troubles. Nikaia discovers a hidden cache of gold, and when police find a corpse nearby, her father becomes a suspect. Worse, Elias Doyle is circling, hungry to avenge his brother’s death.

Nikaia desperately searches for clues to save her father. In her quest to find the killer, she learns about the power of family, friendship, and young love....

I just paid for a bargain add ($20) and I received confirmation on payment, but not anything about scheduling. My book is $5.99...but I just changed it this morning to the required $4.99 and I'm waiting for it to update. Can someone please help me?

I paid for a Book Discovery slot on February 8th, and received an email that the book would be included in today's blog post. I'm getting a little nervous though, as it doesn't look like any Book Discovery blogs have been posted since the 7th.

Edited: I see the post now. Thank you, Kboards!  :D

I just submitted and paid for a feature spotlight ad for When Least Expected (B009YJEK8G). It said to enter my preferred date in the instructions field. There was no instructions field. I am requesting for this ad to run on Tuesday, March 28th, when the book will be temporarily marked down to 99 cents. Could someone confirm if this date is available?
 :o P.S. Your email link in the questions section does not work.

Hello! I purchased a bargain promotion earlier today. I received confirmation from paypal but nothing from KBoards. There was no indication of when the promotion would run.

0 sales, 0 page reads.  :o At least was only $20. I won't likely do it again. Also there have been no tweets on the kboards twitter account since May.

I chose Book Discovery for the three books in my series. Crossing my fingers.

Will this only be on Facebook? I can't find the promotional page on this site. The advice page says to ad links to twitter posts, but I don't know where to link to.

Is this promotion service still active?  I paid for a promotion several weeks ago via the link but have never had any contact since.

I paid for a Spotlight promotion 4 days ago and have not received any sort of communication or confirmation (except from PayPal, who confirmed my payment). I have no idea what's going on. And it seems odd to be directed to inquire about this via a "Reply to this post". Don't you have any direct "private" communication method? Seems a bit dodgy to be carrying out one's business on a public forum. Please respond. Thanks.
