I would love to get in on this. Cradle to Grave is a paranormal romance. Ghost, not shifter. It is adult, but not erotica. And f/f. I am working on a cover now.

Hi Renee,

I'd like to be included, too.  I have  a list of 6K plus for my thrillers and about 35K on twitter.  Lynn Hallbrooks was kind enough to email me offline.  I'm not around KB too much, so I have no idea what my sig looks like at the moment  (insert embarrassed emoji).  Going to look at that now . . .  I have a 3-book series, 2 more, and 1 on the way.  Let me know what you need for this.  Thanks!

Helen

I would love to be included as well. I don't have a mailing list yet but I tweet every day and have my blog and Facebook so I can cross-pollinate y'all that way.

I'm currently in some family crises, but I'll be very interested in this in a few months.  I'll try chiming in to promote others when you guys get started. Bookmarking for future.

And THANK YOU, Renee, for starting this! I've coveted Patty's SFF promo for ages. It's awesome of you to take the initiative on this. And thank you, Patty, for the example.  :-*

Definitely interested. I have three thrillers and a police procedural.


There's no such thing as a simple plan.

I'm interested. My Northland Chronicles novels are near-future thrillers. They'll fit in well with this crowd of books!

Great idea! Thank you for organising this. I'd love to participate, but my new suspense thriller won't be released until the end of May. If that works - please consider me!

I'd be interested, especially as I see a few other YA mystery folks here! One question though, what are you considering a full-length novel? I've got a novella (just over 30k words) that is normally 2.99, so it's not like I'd be promoting a short story for .99 cents. I'm not in KDP Select, so I can't just use a free day and I'm not ready to make it permafree until the next book in the series comes out sometime this summer. Just thought I'd ask, just in case, but I understand if this isn't acceptable. I may just need to be patient and wait on these kinds of promotional activities until I have the next book out and can go permafree on book one.

A novella is probably okay - the promo will be based on price (free or 99 cents typically) so it would depend on if you can discount when the promo runs.

I'm interested.

I take it that I can simply change the price of the book down to .99 for the promotional period, correct?

Yes, you can do that at any point even if you are on KDP Select.  You just have to make sure it takes plus remember to factor in time zones when you change your prices.  I believe Amazon is on US Pacific time zone.

Hope that helps.
