October promotion dates are open. Please visit http://readper.com/authors/ to submit. Details below.


Readper.com is an affiliated book blog promoting titles in urban fantasy, romance, paranormal romance, science fiction/fantasy and mysteries/thrillers.

I do at least one blog post a day, M-F, then on Saturdays my newsletter goes out to subscribers promoting the links.

The basic service is free for authors. Contributions accepted for advanced promotions, but not required for the free option. Just fill out the form and when you'd like your post to go out: http://readper.com/authors/

Kindle Scout titles can be promoted too. Details at the site.

Welcome to the KB Writers Cafe!

You're welcome to promote your business and website here in the Writers' Cafe!

New threads about the service wil be removed. Please bookmark this thread so that you can find it again to post to. And, you may not make back-to-back posts to the thread within seven days. If someone responds (such as this post), you may reply but otherwise must wait seven days, thanks!

All right, so like I said before, I have signed up for Readpr.

Why not?

It doesn't cost anything - so basically it is free promotion from now until (I suspect) Jaxon has built up enough of a readership. I'm a big fan of free promotion - partly because I am cheap and partly because I am broke. Oh heck, let's be honest - MOSTLY because I am cheap.

With that in mind, I've got my three kelpie books lined up for promotion - the novel KELPIE DREAMS will be promoted at full price on Dec. 23, the second short story promoted at 99 cents on Dec. 24,  and the first short story will run on Dec. 26 as a one-day freebie.

I'll let you folks know how this test run turns out.

I am the canary that squeaks in the darkness of the coal mine. I am the check engine light, blinking in the darkness of your stalled automobile.

I am Darkwing Duck...

Thanks Cindy, Steve, Eric and others.

I am now filled up on December slots. Currently accepting promos for January. The mailing list continues to grow with a $100 gift certificate giveaway, and this is an easy way to add another group of emails to your own efforts at no cost.

I've had a phenomenal first month, and the outpouring of support from the indie author community has been fantastic.

The increase in email signups thanks to the $100 gift card drawing has been good too, and I would like to continue offering prizes. Therefore, I have introduced a suggested contribution button to help out on giveaways. But I'll run your promo regardless, in the interest of helping get the word out about your book.

Here's what you'll get:

- A blog entry remaining indefinitely on the site. The more links to your book, the better it will look to search engines, and I will include a variety of tags that will hopefully enhance hits.

- A mention in the readper weekly email to subscribers.

- A mention on the readper Facebook page. If your title is in the sci-fi/fantasy or urban fantasy genre, I'll also include it on my personal page, Jaxon Reed's Speculative Fiction. Would love for you to like both of them on Facebook.

- A tweet on @readperbooks, as well as a retweet on @authorjaxonreed. Combined, these two accounts have over 45,000 followers. The majority are on my personal one.

Can't guarantee any sales, but I will help spread the word.

If you have a free book, I'll be happy to mention it in the newsletter rather than a blog post.
 
Would love for you to visit http://readper.com/authors/ and list your book.

Thanks!
