Just nominated Untangling the Black Web and Cybele.  Looking forward to reading both of them as soon as they're published, whichever method fate predicts.

Thank you so much, Rachel! I usually hold my breath when I'm on a rollercoaster. Not this time! :)

Just a little shout out to Jaxon about how awesome Readper is.  My campaign was ticking right along, doing fairly well, even though I'm in the boggy middle bit.  Then, my Readper hit yesterday.



Awesome!

Thanks for the heads up Julianne, I've just contacted them to see if I can book a slot. That's quite a jump.

Happy to help!  Open slots fill up quickly, but it's worth checking on regardless.  Last campaign and this one, I contacted Readper the first day of my campaign. 

For anyone that doesn't already know, Readper will mention your Scout Campaign in it's very well-read newsletter for $7.50.  Excellent results for a very reasonable price.  Well worth doing if you can get it scheduled.

Thanks so much, Rachel! Hoping you get good news on Tikopia too! This was one of the ones I was looking forward to reading the most.

Just nominated:

Untangling the Black Web by T.F. Jacobs
Cybele by Rena Arun
Tropical Nights by Jelmer De Haan

Best of luck to all three!

Thanks for the support, Mark!

Awesome stats, Julianne! I agree, Jaxon's services are the best bang for your buck.

Readper is excellent. The newsletter went out and I got back on the Hot and Trending. Thanks Jaxon

Julianne, great stats and a hell of a cover! You'll get my vote.

Have had Black Web and Cybele nom'd for the last couple of days.

Sorry to hear about Red Fingernails...I liked that one.

Good luck to all.

It's Monday. I've got the morning off but I work the evening.

Let's get to the list, shall we?

Remember - the campaigns that need nominations the most are the ones that are closest to the LAST DAY LEFT, 1 day left, 2 days left etc.

Updated List

3 days left Cybele by Rena Arun
6 days left Tropical Nights by Jelmer De Haan
7 days left I Think I Know You...Karyuna, Do I? by Ajit Panicker
7 days left The 13th Sign by Kate Warren
14 days left Ghost in the Park by Julianne Q. Johnson
14 days left Mister Miracle by Carey Lewis
14 days left Tribe by D. McMahon
17 days left Ardor's Peril by Bemy Well
19 days left Ersha's Revenge by D.M. Chappell
21 days left The Spirit of Imhotep by Maria Isabel Pita
25 days left The Fallen Child by David Thompson
25 days left Just Jilted by Lila James

I put this list up every morning and I strive to keep it up-to-date so that this thread needn't dissolve into a flurry of "NOMINATE MY BOOK, NOMINATE MY BOOK" posts. No one is under any obligation to nominate any of these books. I'm just trying to keep the thread clear of unnecessary clutter. This way once a day there is a complete list of current candidates and folks can readily check out the kboards members who have a book in the running and can make up their own mind. I try and stay nonpartisan about it - which is why I don't comment on any particular book by title. I just keep the list.
 
If I have missed anyone please let me know either with a PM or by posting a link here in the thread.

Happy scouting folks!

Hi scouters, hope you're all doing well. Just wondering if anyone has any free or 99c books at the moment? Looking for things to pop in my newsletter. Scifi or fantasy preferred but will consider anything.

Still nominating from the list!

The campaign for Untangling the Black Web is over. What a ride. Untangling the Black Web finished with 7.6 K page views, and 683 out of 720 hours Hot and Trending, with 76% internal from Kindle Scout, and 24% external. Thank you all for all the kind words and support you had for it!

TF,
I looked at your opening chapters again and all I can say is, whatever happens, you have a prospective reader/buyer of Black Web right here. Your numbers are awesome and not unsurprising. Best of luck to you! :)

Hi TE :) Mine (Dead Close to Reality -- http://mybook.to/DeadCloseToReality) is 0.99 until the end of the month... it's a YA Thriller though. I'm afraid I don't have subscribers to my newsletter yet so I can't do a swap, so don't feel like you need to include me!

Great, I'll put in 'dead close to reality', 'kelpie snow' and 'raven's peak'.  I'll give bar girl a shot too, not my usual genre but people always love a freebie!
