Will you keep us updated as to how far out you're booked up on paid promos?

I'm sure some of us are on the fence whether we want to do $.99 promos because the royalties are so low, but it would be nice to know if our window of opportunity is closing. ;)

Yes, I'll post in here as we fill up the successive months.

99-cents is good for the impulse buyer... but I know what you mean about the lower royalties. (The "Spotlight Books" can be any price, though.)

Hey, Harvey,

I see that erotica isn't really welcome 'round those parts, but what about horror? The violence and gore is significant enough for me to put a warning label on my books, but it's far from the most graphic that I've ever read. Basically, the "results" of a child that had been killed are present where someone in the book goes, so I warn people just in case it might be unsettling even after the fact.

Maybe: Family books only -- no books with depictions of graphic sex or violence? (or do you guys not really care about the violence?)
Title: Re: New promotional opportunities with KindleBoards - Free | Bargain | Spotlight
Post by: Al Dente on October 18, 2012, 09:44:48 pm
I was seriously considering either the .99 promotion or the Spotlight promotion. Unfortunately, the book I wanted to promote is only 80 pages and has no reviews. I have the worst time getting reviews of any kind on Amazon. I get likes, but rarely reviews.

If there were ever an exception to the rule, I'd love to get Trapped in front of some readers.

Facebook is the key to driving traffic to the blog. For each Free and Bargain Book post we make, we get 200 to 300 "Likes", and about 1,000 clicks through to the blog.

Facebook followers: 10,223 as of this hour.

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!

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 ;).

Now that we have reached 10,000 followers of our Facebook page (http://facebook.com/kindleboards) - in only 70 days! - we'd like to open up some promo opps for our authors. This will be a limited time thing; once we reach 50,000 followers we may discontinue this offering.

But for now, we're making available the following promo's for your book:

- Free Book promo - no charge - this is already in place. More info here: https://kboards.com/free-book-promo


Hi Harvey - I've tried to register my book on the Free Book promo at the link above but it repeatedly tells my ASIN number is incorrect  B004J4W024.  Could you tell me what the problem is please. The number is correct.  I wanted to register for 23 & 24 November.

I just tried it with your ASIN and it works for me - - just make sure there are no blank spaces before or after the ASIN when you copy it in. Let me know if that helps!

Hi Harvey!

How far out can we book a spotlight promo? The second book in my series is coming out in early January, and the first is currently $0.99 with strong reviews, but I'd like to wait to spotlight it until right before (or when) the second book comes out.  I have a free short story that ties in between them as well. If I can schedule it for right after the holidays (once everyone has opened their Kindles from Santa, LOL), this would be perfect!

Thanks,

Hi, Kendra,

You can schedule them as far ahead of time as you wish! When you get to the order form, there'll be a field for "Instructions". Just put in there which dates you prefer. Right now we have a few days booked for December, but January is open for the most part.

Thanks!

Interesting --the order form only asked for my ASIN....so I don't know where/how to post the instructions. I'm guessing someone will be in touch? Payment went through okay...

Once you click the "Pay" button, you'll see a page with an 'Instructions' field.

No problem, though, we've already sent the email. Thanks!

Just wanted to post a thank you to the KB blog/FB page for their free promo of my free book yesterday. I had filled out a ton of forms for other sites, but KB was the ONLY one that did a free promo of my book. I can't imagine how poor of a free day I would have had without it.

You're welcome, Mary - and thank you for thinking of us!

Dear Harvey,

I just signed up, before seeing that you have no openings until December. I had chosen a November date. Can you let me know what's available (or not available) in December and January? Hope this isn't too confusing. I signed up for the $20 promotion.

The payment for this will read "EFT Consultations." My writing name is C. M. Barrett.

Hi Harvey!  I sent in my form to go free over Xmas....I know that's a popular time, but you didn't say that xmas was filled up or closed, so I'm hoping I'll be an early bird and that will get my book in line for being featured as a freebie on one of those days, (pretty please!).

Right now, I just make the requirements, (3 reviews, 4.7) and I'm hoping that none of my reviews get captured by the Amazon Review Remover Gremlin that is hitting so many of us.  In general, I look forward to gaining reviews, but now I have to worry about losing them, and even though my reviews are all legit and from strangers, authors are losing legit reviews, and being on the brink of your requirements makes me a little nervous. 

Anyway, the blog looks fantastic, thanks!

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' :)

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.

While no one's results are guaranteed, I thought I'd share some very kind testimonials that we've received lately. Thanks for the great feedback!


FROM READERS

"Thank you so much. Through your wonderful books I am able to read books that I would have never chosen before, and I love them!!! You have expanded my world."

"I just want to thank whoever finds the deals on kindle and shares them with us here! It saves me a ton of time searching through reviews when i just want to pick up something new to read quickly. You obviously enjoy what you do and I thank you for it!"


FROM AUTHORS

"Thank you so very much!  What a great write-up!!  We are now #9 in Mystery/Thriller/Suspense and #2 in Mystery/Mystery/series. You are the BEST!!!"

"One day with your promotion. 700 downloads. Shared your link on facebook and email. #3 in Men's Adventure on .co.uk & .com; #15 Action & Adventure on .com; #17 Action & Adventure on .co.uk. Even with the massive amount of book releases and other free work out there. Thanks for the support, much appreciated."

"It was a good day. The book jumped from 8,800 to 4,800 in Amazon's rankings. Looking forward to the next promo on the 19th!"

"Thanks again for the free listing! We hit #5 this past Saturday on the Romantic Suspense List!"

"I don't know where to thank you for the fabulous blogpost feature for my free book promotion today. None of the big blogs picked me up so all those yummy downloads (I've almost cracked the top 100--107 as of typing) must be down to you!!! Thank you so so much!!"

"Thank you very much for helping me spread the word about my recent promotion for my novel! It was a great success. Over 3,200 readers downloaded my novel, which topped two genre categories in the US and the UK. UK: #1 in Contemporary Fantasy, #2 in Science Fiction, 377 Free in Kindle Store! US: #2 in Science Fiction, #95 Free in Kindle Store! These milestones could not have been achieved without your help. I deeply appreciate it!"

"I just wanted thank you for supporting my free run this last week. I had a great run (23K, which exceeded expectations for me) and I attribute a lot of it to the boost you gave me in the blog and on Facebook. Thanks for all your support of us hard-scrabblin' indies!"

"Thanks for having me on Kindleboards for my FREE day. Today (Oct 10) is the last day free and more than 13,000 people have downloaded."

"Thank you Kindle Boards! Ravenscraig is listed at #1 in free historical fiction on Amazon's Kindle store AND is now in the top 100 overall, currently at #63. Thank you for helping authors change the literary landscape."

"KindleBoards, thanks for your support. [My novel] is now #1 in Amazon US & UK #mystery series."

"So awesome - thank you very much. I've been giddy all day. I truly don't believe [my novel] would have become the book it is if not for the people I've met here on KindleBoards. Thanx again and also thank you for making KindleBoards available."

"Have had over 400 downloads since your email went out. I'm really pleased with that - thanks again!"

"We've gotten over 250 downloads so far. It feels good so we are happy - certainly more then we were expecting. Thanks for your help and for the great resource you provide!"

"Thanks for highlighting the book promo on the blog and elsewhere. It was very well done, and the promo is going well (well over 200 given away so far and the book has moved into the top 20 free epic fantasies). I appreciate all you've done for me and others as we try to get our books noticed!"


FROM APP DEVELOPERS

"Looks like it's an effective ad campaign and I can't thank you enough. I'll definitely try to arrange ads in your FB page again."

Harvey, do you have any information on the sites family-friendly requirements for promotions? The descriptions just said "no erotica", but I'm concerned that the book I'd like to promote falls somewhere in the middle. It's not erotica by any stretch, but it deals with mature ideas normally presented only to adults, and it's titled Whores.  It explores the societal intricacies of gender politics in a dystopian society, and contains some disturbing material(murder, referencing sexual abuse, torture, terrorism, guerilla warfare.)

Can you clarify the policy for me, so I know whether I can promote it with KB?

Thanks for asking that question. We're deliberately vague on defining that, because it's, well, hard to define. :)

As site owner, the yardstick I use is whether I'd be comfortable having my teenage daughters view the promotion. That generally keeps our promotions in line with what our readership is accustomed to and finds unobjectionable.

We would not accept a promotion here with that title or that content.

Thank you for understanding!

-Harvey

I figured Valentines Day (2/14) would be a good day to do a free promo for The Haircut, since it's a love story.  Just submitted my request.  I'm very excited.  One thing, though, I'm not sure exactly when to change the price to free on Amazon.  Should I do it the day before so there won't be a problem?  Don't want anyone to click on it expecting it to be free and then finding out it's still 99 cents.  I guess it's pretty obvious I've never done a promo like this before.

Thanks so much, Harvey, for the opportunity.  I really appreciate it.

Other authors may have advice on the logistics for that - but FYI the blog post will hit at about 8am, so you'll want the free price to be in effect by that time.

Hi Harvey,

I'm helping to organize a group 99c sale (10 authors, 10 books), fantasy with love stories). We haven't fixed on a date yet, although we want to do it *before* Valentine's, since we figured everyone else will be doing *on* Valentine's. I didn't see any info on the blog for advertising a group promo. What would an ad like that cost, and would you have any slots still available say between Feb. 7 and Feb. 12?

Hi, Ruth,

We have been handling those as spotlight promotions, so the cost is $50.

February 8, 9, and 11 are available right now. Let me know and I can hold one of those for you if you wish - thanks!

Is Feb. 11th still available, Harvey? If so, I'd like to reserve it. And then I would need some instructions from you on how to sign up when it's a group promo rather than an individual book. :)

If the 11th is already taken, could you please reserve the 9th for me? I know this took a while, but trying to get 10 writers to agree on dates is pretty complicated ...

Yes, Feb 11th is open so I'll hold the 1pm Pacific slot for you on that date.

You can lock it in at this link, and just put "Various" for the ASIN:
https://kboards.com/blog-ads

After that, all I need is:
- the list of ASINs of the books being promoted
- a graphic image for the promotion, if you have one
- some text copy describing the promotion

From that, we can prepare a spotlight post and include clickable images of all the covers of the books in the promotion. We can also provide a link to an Amazon summary page listing all of the books.

Let me know if you have any questions on any of the above!

Title: Re: Promo with KindleBoards - Free | Bargain | Discover | Spotlight
Post by: KBoards Admin on February 03, 2013, 10:49:02 am
The ASIN is the unique identifier that Amazon assigns to each of its products. You can find it by going to your book's Amazon page, and searching for 'ASIN.'

It's a ten-character string of letters and numbers. For Kindle books, they start with the letter "B."

Many thanks to Harvey et al for featuring my novel The Haircut, a New Year's Tale (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0031MA3H4/?tag=kbpst-20) as a freebie today.  I started the free promo on KDP yesterday, just to be sure, and so far more than 1,000 US takers, and 146 in the UK plus a smattering elsewhere. I think that's pretty good, and am hoping it will result in some additional reviews, and maybe a few purchases of my other book.

I really appreciate the opportunity!

We don't have any restrictions on that. I think it makes sense to not have a free and a paid promotion for the same book too close together... but I would say that as long as you don't have another free day coming up quickly, it should be okay.

The situation you want to avoid is to have a paid promotion, and then a few days later have a free book promotion for the same book... that's asking for a bunch of returns! But that's not your situation.

Because of the recent changes in Amazon policy, we have discontinued the free book promo submissions. We will still promote free books, but much less frequently, and only through the other types of promotions we offer (Spotlight, bargain book, etc).

Sorry about that, I know it throws a wrench into your KDP Select promotions. If we're able to change this in the future, I'll post in this thread about it.

Thanks for the opportunity Harvey! This is great. I booked a promo for the bargain book section. I'm also happy to see the free book hype is dying out a bit now that Amazon changed the rules again. Of course, it's wonderful to draw people in with free books and promote them everywhere, but on the other hand, 99 cents might become the new 'free' (and there's still something in it for us authors!).

FYI, I'll be on vacation for the next six days. Shouldn't affect anything here, but you might see a slowdown in our e-mail confirmations for ad orders during that time. Please bear with us - we'll process them in the order received, and in a few days you will get your confirmation. Thanks!

Submitted a Bargain Book for a photography book.  In the past you accepted my photo books even though they have less than 100 pages, if you are still able to do that I may try advertising a few of them here.

Submitted a book for Discovery - it just came off of a successful free run.  It has 3 reviews but could use more and is definitely not under 10,000 rank.  It is however #3 in one category and #15 in another.

Hi, Uvi--

Harvey & Celeste have been out of town for the last week; I'm sure one of them will be in touch with you soon.  It won't be a problem if you need a refund because the dates won't work.

Right now we have Bargain Book slots open from April 16th on. They tend to book just a few days out, so they're a good choice for a last-minute promotion.

Book Discovery promos only run once per week, and are now full through June 14th.

Thanks for you interest!

I probably went about everything all wrong. I put in for a date tomorrow but never heard if there was room available and didn't know we had to come here to request a date. I already paid through Paypal.

If I can't get tomorrow (which I'm thinking I can't) can I get a discovery promo for the 29th or 30th for AISN: B00929ROE0

Update: we sent a confirmation to your PayPal email address on July 27th. I've FB-messaged you about it. Let me know if you need the confirmation email sent elsewhere - thanks!

How can you tell me how this works.

What works best

A. The banner ad?
B. The Featured book slot?

When is your next slot available for either?

Go to the bottom of any forum page, and in the yellow box you'll see links to each of our ads - the links describe the ads and show general availability.

Generally, the blog/FB ads (spotlight, bargain, discovery) perform better than the forum ads (banner, features book).

I am sorry if this has been asked before but if I have already had a "Book Discovery" day in April. Can I book another slot or is it only one slot per author per book?

For Book Discovery, there are no restrictions on repeat books - you can re-sign up anytime. Some authors like to run their books every month or two. If you want to reserve future dates, you can let us know in the Instructions field that appears in the sign-up process.

Yes, that'll work - thanks! And we're open on that date, so you should be good. You'll get a confirmation email in the morning for it.

Not sure about the dates now. I had August 16 or August 23.  I could take the next available Friday. Thanks so much.

Your registration with KBoards is not a factor for the book sign-up. We've responded to each order received. Note that our confirmation emails go to your *PayPal* email address, so check there to see your assigned date.

Can you tell me when you sent the PayPal payment, the type of ad it was for, and the ASIN of the book? We can resolve this quickly. Thanks.

You are welcome, and thank you for arranging the promotion for your series. The reader reviews of your series of books are really interesting to browse through. And I'm impressed how you manage to create novels for not only the Outside series but for your Marchwood series as well... you must squeeze a lot of productivity out of your day.

Thanks Harvey, confirmation received. Apparently my promo will go out on Monday 24th. I'm all set to start linking, sharing and liking to maximise the impact. That said, any sales from it will be awesome as I spent quite a lot more on a Goodreads promo whihc resulted in next to no sales despite being seen thousands of times.

We've received your payment and will feature your banner ad on Feb 22,
2014. Thank you!

That's our earliest available date, but do let us know if you prefer
another (later) date.

Please email your banner ad graphic to us at least 48 hours prior to your
scheduled day. The banner ad can be in JPG, PNG, or GIF format. It should
be 728 pixels wide and 90 pixels high, and less than 75kb in size.

By default, we'll have the banner ad link to the book's Amazon page. If
you prefer that it goes to some other Amazon page (like your author page,
for instance), let us know the URL for that page.

Thanks for supporting KBoards and arranging for us to display your book's
banner ad! Please feel free to reply to this email if you have any
questions.

Sooo... Harvey, I want to promote a new book which obviously has no reviews yet (I'm working on that). In the meantime, can I use the Book Discovery program and then a Spotlight promotion as soon as - and assuming I get - some reviews?

The book is here http://www.amazon.com/Love-Sleeps-Forest-Graeme-Hague-ebook/dp/B00IWNGXPS/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1394679224&sr=1-1&keywords=Graeme+Hague

I priced it at 4.99, but Amazon has rounded that to $5.00. When my freebie KDP Select day finishes in a few hours, I'll try pricing it at $4.95 to see if it stays below $5.

Cheers from Ozstralia.

Yes, the Book Discovery promotion would be available for it, and if you wish you can pre-book a future date for a Spotlight promotion, in hopes it has the minimum number of reviews by then. (And if not, we can re-schedule.)

My book is a Book Discovery today on the blog. I've had just one sale for the moment. I would be curious, Harvey, to know if the authors reported to you their sales after a Book Discovery promo, to get the range of sales for this kind of promo?

Maybe a 337 pages science-fantasy book priced at 0.99$ is suspect for some readers? Although it's a promo price: it will return to its normal price of 2.99$ on March 27th.

Nope, not at all. Every now and then we'll have an empty day, but on a typical day we'll run one or two banner ads which alternate randomly, and then have one or two Featured Book ads to the right of that.

The Spotlight ads are different... they run in our blog/Facebook/Twitter/newsletter, and don't appear in our forum.

$3.99 is a tough price point for that promotion. (We do allow books up to $4.99... but lately most of our bargain books have been $0.99 or free.)

 There is a list of major sources at the back of the book.
 
 Apollo 13 was a mission that gripped the entire nation and the world. It would test the courage, endurance and ingenuity, not just of three astrona...

That's fine. Thanks for the quick response.

Hi Harvey,

I was wondering if my novella "The 6th of November" could be a good fit for a "Featured Book" banner. Is $3.99/kindle a good deal?

The Featured Book promotion displays the price quite prominently, so it is better to have a free or $0.99 book... and particularly so if it's a novella. Thank you for your interest!

How would you (or the board) recommend advertising if so far I have only published three books out of a forthcoming seven-book series? I don't think a series feature or box set feature would be appropriate, but I've never done this before so I'm not sure.

Great feature by the way, Kboards is such a tremendous resource.

Hi Harvey,

Do you do a special Saturday promotion for new books that I had once, or am I mixing you up with someone else?

Anyway, which promotion would you recommend for a book launching on 25 September that is part of a (non-sequential) series?

The series is 'Hashtag Histories'.

I would recommend the Series Spotlight, and in that promotion we could focus on the newly-launched book, while also providing information about the whole series -- e.g. links to the other books, links to sign-up to your mailing list, etc.

There's an example (and a sign-up form) at this link:

Actually we are one of the few sites that provides worldwide links, at least in some of our promotions. In our Bargain Book posts, Spotlight posts, and Book Discovery posts, we provide worldwide flags that take our international viewers right to that book in their local Amazon site.

We see the best results from the following genres: romance, mystery/thriller, chick-lit. Next in line would be Sci-Fi/fantasy, horror, and YA. Middle Grade and children's books have seen less traction.

Harvey, I paid for a discovery ad for 'House of Apache Fires' last night, but never got verification via email, nor did I see how I schedule it. I'm new to this - a little confused. I also put it in Thrillers and adventure, but it only shows up in the war category. What am I doing wrong?

ETA: I just took it out of Military / War and put it in Historical Mystery instead. (It's also in Adventure / Thrillers. Hard to quantify.) I see the charge on Paypal but not on my bank statement. I double checked the ASIN - pretty sure it's right.

Hi, thanks for your order! We sent a confirmation a few minutes after receiving it, to the email inbox associated with your PayPal account. That's an "npgcable.com" email address. We scheduled it for November 11th, but there's information in that email on how to re-schedule that if you wish. Let me know if you need that sent to a different email address. Thanks!

Hi, Allie,

Thanks,

Edited - I just saw your email (I hardly ever check my paypal email eh...), so I'll send you the information. If it's too late any date will be fine. I recently reverted the book to paid (I'm planning to move it from Smash over to to D2D) and it's currently $1 on US and 1 pound on UK.

Hi Harvey,

I have a question.  A few days ago (April 20), I ordered a Bargain book Kboards promotion for my book The Seventh Magpie and it was approved for May 1. 

I want to check that you received my payment.  Our bank was purchased by another bank this week and it screwed up our accounts.  When we talked to the bank in person, they said that your payment was pending and they would put it through.  But this morning I got a message from Paypal saying your payment was declined.

Can you please confirm whether you did or didn't receive payment from me?  If you didn't, let me know and I'll send it again from the new bank account.

Thanks!

--Nancy Chase

Hi, Robin,
  Hope you're having as bright a day in Seattle as we are today in Bellingham! Other than our paid promotions, we only allow self-promo in one place: the Book Bazaar. In that board, you're allowed to have a thread about your book, and post up to once/week about it.

Hi! I purchased a book promo spot for Clear as Glass, on sale for $0.99 from July 31, 2015 - August 14, 2015.

Clear as Glass is the winner of 5 Romance Writer of America chapter contests and a finalist in the 2015 Book Buyers Best contest. The last thing Mitchell Blake needs is another hot-shot consultant to "save" his glassblowing factory, but this one is different. She is hiding something. If he can unearth Jaye's secrets, he might have good reason to fire her...or keep her forever. Loving her can save him. Loving him can ruin her. Sometimes, nothing is as CLEAR AS GLASS.

One question: if I try the bargain books promotion, I have to have 3 reviews on Amazon according to the link I clicked on. I have 2 on .com at the moment but 4 on .co.uk (the curse of being a Brit and giving free copies to people I meet in bars!) Do the .co.uk reviews count?

Hi KBoards,

I am feeling a bit lost and confused  :'( but have a question about a book Giveaway I am doing on Amazon.
Is it permissible to post a Giveaway on KBoards, is that standard practice?
Secondly, am I able to use KBoards (I don't mind paying) as a platform to use social media to give a shout-out.
I don't use social media at all and the other promo options don't seem to fit with a new book Giveaway with no reviews.
Thanks

Thank you for asking.

You can announce your book giveaway in the Book Bazaar, and you may also note it in your forum signature.

The best promo option for a book with no reviews is our Book Discovery promotion, which includes social media (Facebook, Twitter, and email newsletter). You'll find a link for that in the yellow box at the bottom of any KBoards page.

Good luck!

Harvey, I double checked to be sure the Paypal payment for the Discovery promo went through and it did, but I still haven't heard from you. Could you drop me a line either by email or DM please? Thanks.

Hi. Is there any other way to ask questions about my promotions? I had a book discovery promo that came out Oct. 16. ASIN: B00XXMFZKW  Your Twitter account apparently is still down, and it looks like you didn't send out email newsletters with my book featured with the other five. I was counting on the emails to promote my book. Putting it on Facebook and on your blog is all I got. What happened, please? Is that all I get?

Hi
I think I may have been featured in the same promo. Despite being in a premium position - first on the list - I got no KOLLs and only 1 paid sale earning me 35p for a $15 dollar spend. I was disappointed but thought it must be down to either:
1. The book cover wasn't good enough
2. The blurb wasn't enticing enough
3. It was the genre
And finally - although I didn't want to admit this:
4. The book just wasn't good enough.

I would like to hear from other authors who have been featured in Book Discovery to see what their experience has been.
My main reason for doing it was to get book reviews but so far I haven't had any of those either despite my 'campaign' starting on 21 September.
Is it too early for reviews?

I am not sure how to contact anyone since there is no contact given.  My problem is that I submitted payment and then that was it.  There was no confirmation email or any date to schedule like the promo said.  Can someone please contact me and tell if I did something wrong and how I can fix it?  Thanks in advance.

I would love to take advantage of the Box Set promo but our box set is all new sweet romance novels and is in pre-order stage. We have more than enough reviews on Goodreads (because amazon doesn't allow reviews yet), but not on amazon. Could we still use the promo?

Judging by some of the more recent comments, it sounds like there's no point using this service.

All I can see are comments about not receiving confirmation emails/poor promo/little-to-no-sales generated as a result of whatever promo did occur.

Does anyone ever actually hear back from them? :/

I have not received a confirmation email for either promo although I have received the PayPal receipts. Could someone on KBoards administration help me with this, please. ( Submitting my query here seems a bit weird to me but that's what it says in the KBoard Book Promos FAQ.)

I'm curious how effective this service is now that Facebook has changed their algorithms (again)?

Not sure if they've changed up how they do their promos - so the following is JUST in regards to the Facebook post paid promotions.

I run a few decently sized Facebook pages, and the reach is so terrible these days. For a page that has 10,000 followers, only about 200-300 of them actually see the post - and that's on a good day, if people interact with the post, leave comments, etc. I've seen some posts reach less than 100 of my followers.

Just a heads up for anyone expecting all 60,000 of their followers to actually see your post. Unless they pay a big chunk to promote the post, only a small fraction of their followers will actually see it... so just a heads up.

Facebook is infuriating.

Hi there!

I am curious what the turn around time is in this. Today is the final day for my free e-book promo for The Broken Road, which is currently ranked #2 for Military Romance and #2 for Multicultural Romance/Top 100 Free (#42 Free in Kindle Store). I just stumbled across this promotional opportunity and wouldn't mind doing a final push. If it isn't feasible for today, then I will definitely tuck this away for my next free e-book promo!

K.S. Ruff

P.S. Please forgive this elementary question, I'm quite new at the kboards. How in the world do I get my book images to appear at the bottom of my posts like so many other authors participating on these boards? I see an "insert image" icon above, but all that does is place "img" in brackets in my post.

KSR--

I'll let the owners know about your question, but I'm certain that today is already booked.  Some lead time is required.

Also, you can create your signature by going to the Author sig tool under Authors in the top menu.  Give it a try and let me know if you have any problems!

If you want to insert an image in a post (or in your signature, though the sig tool is easier), your image has to be stored online.  Copy the URL for the image (it needs to be the direct link--the one ending in, say, .jpg if you are using a JPEG format.  Then you can click on the "insert image" icon and paste your link between the Img tags that you saw--and the image will appear when you post.  If the image is really large, you can shrink it by putting a height or width constraint in.  It would look like this: [img width=700]http://www.yourwebsite.com/thisisyourimage.jpg[/img]. 700 is about the max width we recommend for forum posts.  Height=125 is the max height for thumbnail images.

If you want a clickable link to your book, you can use our link-maker to make individual book (and other Amazon products) links.  It is also found under Authors.

Finally, be sure to check out the Tips, FAQs and Links sticky thread pinned to the top of the Writers' Café for more information on these and other tips for authors.

Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions.

Betsy

Hi there!
I help with promotions and unfortunately it is too late to run a promo for your book today. In the future, we recommend booking out at least a week in advance. I'm sorry it didn't work out this time, but we'd be happy to run a promo in the future! If you have any questions about promos you can also email [email protected] We are on vacation now though so it might take a bit longer if you reach us through that email since we're checking it less frequently. :)

I paid for a Spotlight promotion 4 days ago and have not received any sort of communication or confirmation (except from PayPal, who confirmed my payment). I have no idea what's going on. And it seems odd to be directed to inquire about this via a "Reply to this post". Don't you have any direct "private" communication method? Seems a bit dodgy to be carrying out one's business on a public forum. Please respond. Thanks.

Hope it doesn't cause any inconvenience.  Thanks!  (https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/41M55XAtLbL._SL160_.jpg) (http://www.amazon.com/dp/1771336056/?tag=vs-kboards-widget-20) (https://www.kboards.com/book/flags/us.jpg) (http://amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Ddigital-text&tag=vs-kboards-widget-20&field-keywords=1771336056) (https://www.kboards.com/book/flags/uk.jpg) (http://amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Ddigital-text&tag=kb1-21&field-keywords=1771336056) (https://www.kboards.com/book/flags/ca.jpg) (http://amazon.ca/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Ddigital-text&tag=vs-kboards-widget-20&field-keywords=1771336056) (https://www.kboards.com/book/flags/mx.jpg) (http://amazon.com.mx/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Ddigital-text&field-keywords=1771336056) (https://www.kboards.com/book/flags/aust.jpg) (https://www.amazon.com.au/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=1771336056) (https://www.kboards.com/book/flags/de.jpg) (http://amazon.de/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Ddigital-text&field-keywords=1771336056) (https://www.kboards.com/book/flags/fr.jpg) (http://amazon.fr/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Ddigital-text&field-keywords=1771336056) (https://www.kboards.com/book/flags/es.jpg) (http://amazon.es/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Ddigital-text&field-keywords=1771336056) (https://www.kboards.com/book/flags/it.jpg) (http://amazon.it/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Ddigital-text&field-keywords=1771336056) (https://www.kboards.com/book/flags/neth.jpg) (http://amazon.nl/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Ddigital-text&field-keywords=1771336056) (https://www.kboards.com/book/flags/br.jpg) (http://amazon.com.br/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Ddigital-text&field-keywords=1771336056) (https://www.kboards.com/book/flags/in.jpg) (http://amazon.in/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Ddigital-text&field-keywords=1771336056) (https://www.kboards.com/book/flags/jp.jpg) (http://amazon.co.jp/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Ddigital-text&field-keywords=1771336056)

Has anyone purchased the "Featured Book" ad ($35/day)? Any comments on ROI?

Are these services still being offered? Based on the comments, things seemed to go a little off track since the last time I did a promotion. Anyone purchased one lately? Any mods around to confirm whether or not this is still being fulfilled?

Thanks!

And thank you, Ms. Clark, for your novels.  :-*
