I have no plans for mystery, but someone else is organising one: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1642873622692030/

You can also join the Instafreebie Promos group to see other promos that people are organising: https://www.facebook.com/groups/instafreebiepromos/

Thanks so much!

Will those also be Science Fiction / Fantasy?

Yes. I'll be running monthly Sci-Fi and Fantasy ones.

Thanks so much!

You are most welcome :)

We should all share this so Instafreebie features this group giveaway. That would really be awesome. I bet we can get them to feature it if this gets big enough :):)

They already agreed to feature it on 12 October :)

That said, yes, we should all share this with our newsletters and social media, and anywhere else of interest. Some of us are working on getting some book bloggers involved.

Would a short story be OK to submit for this? Or does it need to be a novel? This would be perfect to help promote one of my short stories series. And I have a rather pathetic mailing list - would I still be welcome to participate? Thanks!  :D

Yes, you can submit a short story.

It doesn't matter what size mailing list you have to start with, but if it's very small, then your sharing on social media might be more beneficial. The basic idea is that all participants should work to promote this.

I've just submitted to your November promo ... I have stuck my book down as Fantasy but it's also sci fi in many respects... modern science but a parallel world and not set in space. Looking forward to it.

Cheers

I've got a post up on Reddit this morning in /r/scifi for the October promo, as they allow self promotion on Saturdays.

https://www.reddit.com/r/scifi/comments/57kbsw/sps_46_free_science_fiction_ebooks/

Could do with some more upvotes for extra visibility if you can spare a minute.

I gather from the sign-up instructions that samples are accepted. Did anyone do the October promo with a sample? If so, I'd love to hear from them if they've still seen a boost in subscribers or if it seems people are only interested in grabbing the full stories/books.
