Re: Renee's mystery/thriller promo thread (like Patty Jansen's SFF thread)

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.

Ouch! My free promo for Safety Valve runs May 7-9. But if that May 10 launch works best for you, I completely understand.

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?



If you are not on FB, you would potentially miss some discussion about promotions, but it would not affect your participation in any promos.

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.   :)

When we do a free promo, it would work.

So, in May it'll be a 99c deal not free deals or both?

May will be 99 cents, not free.

Just signed up on your site. Can I put REACTION into it? It's at pure thriller and at .99c for the foreseeable future.

Yes, it's mysteries and thrillers :)

Hi all:

You can now sign up  :D

http://reneepawlish.com/promo/index.php/for-authors/

You sign up at the end of the For Authors page (but please read the directions). I will be mailing out the link to the google doc to you with 24 hours (hopefully sooner, but I do have a day job that gets in the way).

May 13-14 will be a 99 cent promo. It can be a Countdown Deal, but keep in mind that if your book is a CD, international readers may not be able to get in on the deal.

What time will we say this is starting - since we have an international group here the time zones naturally will be different as well as the days.

Have a great one!

Good question :)

Since this can include Countdown Deals, it would have to be US Pacific time, at 12:01 AM on the first day, May 13th.  If anyone thinks this is wrong, let me know. I believe that is the time zone Amazon works with.

Going forward, I'll have to think about this, but will let you know. Thanks for bringing this up.

I think you are correct about it being U.S. Pacific time - and if memory serves me - Countdown deals are automatically set up for around 8 a.m. unless the author/publisher puts it earlier - having trouble accessing it at the moment to verify. Update: I finally got in. I was correct it is preset to 8 a.m. PST for the Kindle Count Down. 

I thought of this because some of the author friends are in different time zones plus you mention international sales may be affected.

Thanks for checking. I think the CDs will be a bit dicey. Will probably need people to discount as early as possible. But I will put a note on the page that readers need to check, and that the books may not be discounted in their time zone or something.

Just a heads up that the email Renee sent went to my spam folder, so if anyone doesn't see it in your inbox, you might want to check for it there.

Thanks for pointing this out. Don't know if yours was a gmail account, but gmail in particular likes to put emails into spam, promotional, and other folders :)

I'm pleased to see you're planning a June one. I think I'll wait until then, as I am promoting a novella (and your form seems to exclude those), plus I'll likely have it permafree by that time (which I think will be more useful for me as a promotion). Signed up to get notified of future promotions. I hope this works out great for you all in May!

Thanks Renee for all your hard work.  I had a little problem but once I re-started the computer I was able to sign up for the May promo.

Have a great one!

My Select enrollment renews on May 5th. Am I right that I won't be able to do a CD for the first 30 days of that?
