Harvey,

My confirmation email said FREE book instead of the .99 Bargain book ad. Seeing as it was scheduled to post today, I hope it goes out with the correct price. The book to be featured was The Silver Cross.

    Sounds like a typo on my part - but yes, the book will be posted correctly as a bargain book at 99 cents. Posting at 10am Pacific!

    Just wondering when those of us who have booked might expect to hear back, Harvey? I'm sure you've received a lot, but receiving a response is always reassuring. :)

    Hi, Harvey... I ordered a spotlight yesterday but did not get a confirmation of dates. Will I receive that at some point?

    Thanks!

    Received confirmation and a proposed date, but I'm asking for a different one of course. ;)

    Thanks, Harvey.

    Yes, you certainly will. We have quite a backlog but everyone should get their confirmations within 48 hours. Thanks for booking with us!

    Update: the rest of October is booked up, and about half of November, for the spotlight ads.

    For bargain book ads, there are still a few spots in October, and most of November is open.

    I'm a very small part of a large group promo that Harvey is kindly spreading the word about:
    http://www.kboards.blogspot.com/2012/10/fall-into-savings-48-books-free-or-99.html

    Plus FB and Twitter too!

    For the part of the promo I'm able to track, I will say that, not even 12 hours into it, I'm very pleased with the clickthroughs we're getting! If Harvey gives his blessing, I'll be happy, when the promo is over, to share the clickthrough numbers from KB's efforts that I can track. For now, let's just say a 2% open rate gives most marketers delight. We're seeing a much better "open rate" than that ;).

    And I just entered a freebie. This is possibly my last freebie for this book, and I'm making it a birthday bash, because one of the two days will be my birthday.
