I didn't receive anything -- by the way was my book, Alice in Sinland approved? I'm asking cause I'm planning a promo around the same time, so I must know for sure. Thanks

I sent out FB invites to everyone, but I did this in a group, and I'm not sure if it worked :)
If you find you didn't get the invite (give it a while), let me know and I'll do something different.
Thanks!
Renee

Nothing showed up for me but I'm also not sure where to look.

I had to send out individual invites to the FB group. I'm caught up as of this morning. If you didn't receive one, check your spam folders :)
If you still don't find it, let me know.

Also, is anyone good with graphics and would volunteer to create something for the FB and twitter posts? Here is an example from the SFF promo:

You're supposed to reply back with your Facebook email to get the invite to the group.

I submitted In Search of Jessica for the 99c promo in May, but I've not had any word back. Checked my spam folder... nothing inviting me to join any facebook group.

I'm not sending out emails to let people know if they are accepted yet. I look at the books as I put them on the site, and I haven't had time to do much yet. I hope to get all that I've received finished by the end of this weekend.

I sent out another invite to you on Facebook :)

I have all the books on the site. If I missed anyone, please let me know.
There is still time for new signups.
Also, we have 10 people who have signed up to receive the email. Some I think are authors, but we might have a few readers :)

A quick thing: I don't have time to immediately check your book and add it to the page when you sign up. I'll get to it when I can. Right now I'm emailing if there's an issue with your book, but as we grow, this may not be feasible (i.e. read the directions to avoid issues).
If you are planning other promos around our promo, please contact me and I'll check sooner.
Many thanks!
Renee

I'm closing the May promo to submissions. I will post when the June promo is open (and I should have some results to share). Thanks everyone for the interest. We have over 60 authors in the promotion :)

I just took a couple minutes to review Patty's thread from about pg 35 through today's posts. Those cover her most recent promotion and there are some good examples of how people are sharing the links. There are some detailed instructions on how to get the URL for the FB post (not just the image URL) that was helpful to me. I plan to email my lists on the Wed prior (but without any links to the website) to give advance notice, and then email again on the promo days with link.
Am I right that we should be posting our posts/tweets etc in this thread too so that others can go share and like them too.

I think we should, so that we can like/share/+1/favorite/etc. each other's posts, which will increase their visibility to our respective online connections.

I thought and in the FB group Renee wrote that she will send tomorrow an email with the FB and Twitter links to share so that they get more shares, retweets, likes, etc. Just like Patty. or at least I thought so.

Hi, do you mean the sign-up for authors at the bottom of the page? If it didn't work, can you tell me (or PM me) and let me know what happened, so I can get it fixed? I don't see any issue from this end.
Or was it something else?
Thanks,
Renee
