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.

Awesome! Then I'm definitely interested. It shouldn't be any problem to change the price of the novella to 99 cents for the promotion period as long as I have ample notice.

I'm interested.

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



That's correct.

I've got a gritty noir tale I'm ready to put on preorder soon. It'll be novella-length, but I'd love to participate in this when I release it with a free five days.

I'm in.

This may sound counter-intuitive, but you and Patty might consider having a promo on the same day.

Now, hold on, hear me out:

1. Participants can email their lists about both promos at once (less work).
2. You can cross promote to each other's sites
3. You aren't completely in direct competition
4. It's like having more books available, but without more work
5. Some authors can have books in both (e.g. sci-fi thriller)
6. It might induce a feeding frenzy.

The name of my series. http://www.amazon.com/Skin-Blond-Noir-Mysteries-Book-ebook/dp/B00PEWC8RC/ :D
I saw your post and clicked the link and read all three in two days. I would have liked more but I realise the series has ended. I'll just pretend the ending of book three never happened :P

I'll have to give that some thought :)

Wow, thanks! Yeah, it's kind of on an indefinite hiatus. I tried to write that third one so it could be a satisfying ending, but it's also open-ended enough that I can pick up and and add more books in the future if I want to.

It sounds good to me; what about supernatural suspense? I mean my book Alice in Sinland which has equal parts of mystery and suspense and supernatural/paranormal activity. A modern day Faust novel. the first part is free and matches the requirements.

Quick update - I'm working with my IT guy on a couple of things. I hope to have everything running for a May promo. I will post here when everyone can sign up.
Also, I am not worrying about whether something is supernatural, cozy, noir, or whatever sub-genres, as long as you would categorize it as a mystery or thriller novel.  But within that, no erotica.
Keep the questions coming.
Thanks!
Renee

Made me laugh...Whenever someone in our family says that, they're talking about me :)

True - I am that person for my parents. I can do a good bit of programming stuff, but I'm running into password issues with my host provider (which is my cousin's company). I hope to have it resolved today and have everything ready to go by the end of the weekend.

Would it be helpful to have a Facebook group where we can discuss each month's promo, and promotion in general? My only caveat is I wouldn't want it to turn into another place for people to ask for feedback on their projects, post questions unrelated to the promotions, etc. Thoughts?

Sounds god about the FB group but everyone must know this rule about no cover feedback, etc.
By the way, when will the entry page be available?

Update: I am almost finished with everything - just a couple things to do and then I will open it up for a May promo - looking at a 99 cent promo (it can be a KD deal) on May 10-11, unless I hear from too many people that this won't work. Then I can push the date back.

No problem on my end. Will await finally word before adjusting the price.

What about those who are not on FB or do not wish to be on FB?

Would a heist/action book fit the bill?  It Takes a Thief is the first in my series, and is permafree.



If so, I'm interested.   :)

I only started using Facebook a few months ago when I joined a group promo similar this. All I can say is that it's one of the best business decision I made. I now belong to several groups that allow me to network with other authors on a deeper level than what you can get here.

What is family without murder?

My thriller won't be out until the start of June, but I'll keep my eyes open for any future promos you might do.
