This is a silly question, I know... :-)

How do you find out when your "free" days happen in Select? I looked in the "KDP Select Info", and it just tells you when the current period of Select ends.

I'd love to do a promo for my free days if I can work out when they occur.

    You need to select them yourself. They don't automatically occur.

    In your bookshelf, go to the book you want to set free and click on Promote and Advertise.
    In the 'Run a Price Promotion' section, select the Free Book Promotion item and then click the big shiny yellow button :).
    Then select your dates, Save Changes and you're good to go!

    Excellent, that's easy enough -- thank you Bec, and Al.

    I'm releasing a new title in a few days. It'll go into Select. Now I can organize a promo. :-)

    I've used bknights multiple times. My books are difficult to promote because I write literary fiction, and I still get results!

    Just remember, if you're bumping up against the end of your KU enrollment period (I am) NOT to schedule a free promo on the last day of your KU enrollment. (That's Amazon's instructions, anyway -- I think it must confuse the system somehow.)

    So far so good via my first free book promo! BKnights put it in their newsletter for today (Saturday 9/12) and it's up to almost 700 downloads and 775 in Kindle Free, and #4 (!) in my sub genre :-D

    Hopefully this will show up in increased sales, we'll see!

    This might be a dumb question, but where is their FB page? How does one subscribe to the BKnights newsletter so you can see your feature? I bought one, and I have a lot of downloads today, but I don't know where to look to see my book.

    TIA!
