The December promo is happening as we speak. Even if you're not in this one, please support your fellow authors with a tweet, update, post, etc. To make it easy for you, you can even just retweet/share the ones I've set up here:

Facebook

Twitter

Google+

Tumblr

Pinterest

It is also greatly appreciated if you can upvote these posts on Reddit:

https://www.reddit.com/r/FreeEBOOKS/comments/5hykud/many_formats_dec_sff_mega_promo_over_120_free/

https://www.reddit.com/r/scifi/comments/5hm4vh/sps_december_sff_book_bonanza_including_58_free/

https://www.reddit.com/r/ebookdeals/comments/5i8lx5/kindle_over_45_scifi_fantasy_books_for_99c_1218/

While the promo "officially" runs until 18 Dec, the page will remain live for the entire month, and some of us will continue to plug it throughout that time.

Put up my wordpress post on the 12th: https://jaglionpress.com/2016/12/12/free-sff-books-on-instafreebie

I hope the slightly jokey language is okay. :)

My list had about 550 people going into the weekend before the giveaway, and I saw a fairly major bounce over the course of the weekend. My email promo went out to 644 people on the 12th, using very similar verbiage to the wordpress post above. It achieved a 45.2% open rate, a 19.5% click rate, and 12 unsubscribes. Opens and clicks are about average for my list to-date, unsubscribes maybe on the high side of average.

My impression of the number of claims on this short story vs the sample chapter I submitted to Dean's last promo: very close over the course of the promotion. I might have seen a stronger "pre-promotion" boost last time when the giveaway page went live for testing, but the pre-promotion boost on this one was nothing to sneeze at either.

My list is now around 799 subscribers, might go as high as 850 before the next Instafreebie giveaway I've committed to kicks in.

Once again, many thanks to Dean for hosting all of us.

Hey Dean,

Can noobs with no mailing list (yet) join in this giveaway? Of course I'd share this down the line with my followers when I actually have some. I'd like to offer a free story to build a list before publishing my first book.

Thanks!

You can join, but you're expected to share everywhere else you can (i.e. social media, etc.)

Hi Dean,

I assume it's too late to get in for Feb. I have a SF book. Is so, do you have one running in March?
