Thanks Harvey, just paid for a spotlight day for High Road To Tibet - Travels in China, Tibet, Nepal and India in December. I assume I'll send you all the details about reviews, etc. when I get the confirmation email?
Thanks,
John

Thank you! Yes, you'll get a confirmation e-mail shortly with a few simple questions to answer that we'll use in preparing your spotlight post.

    Hi Harvey!

    Is my book suitable? It has adult themes, but the look inside is as naughty as it gets. It has nine reviews on Amazon UK, but only one in the US. It is the US version I'd like to promote.

    Thank you for asking. I've reviewed the sample. It may not technically be erotica, but its content is close enough to it that I don't think it would be appropriate for our promotions. Thank you for understanding.

    No worries. What does worry me is the fact Amazon ranks it 46 for 'child rearing' :)

    Ha! Some of those Amazon-assigned categories are head-scratchers!

    Hi Harvey. I've popped in a freebie request for my free run for The Black Mile on 21-23 Dec and am quite likely to follow up with a Spotlight.

    Thanks,

    Mark

    Just wanted to say THANK YOU to Harvey. We had a group promo that took shameless advantage of his offer to post freebies. We had 20 free books overall going free at various times Nov 21-25. In part due to KB mentions, on the first day, out of 16 freebies, we had:
    3 in the overall Top 10
    6 in the overall Top 50
    8 in the overall Top 100
    13 in the overall Top 200

    Harvey also kindly slipped in a link each day to a page with the group of our books available that day for free. Those mentions alone sent 320 folk our way.

    Don't worry. We're not complete moochers ;). I've got Spotlight ads purchased for upcoming sales in December and January.

    I tried to pay for a Spotlight Promotion for my book 'Bright Star'. I'm not sure if it actually went through. Let me know if it didn't, and I'll try it again (PayPal was being a little wonky).

    I just signed up for a free promo starting Dec 5. I couldn't remember if I had sent the request already a few weeks ago, so if you already received my request, I apologize.
