Recently read a great article from Jason Boog from our friends at Galleycat about eBook promotion sites they’ve culled from the Kindle Boards. Here are twelve of our own favorites culled from that article.
Addicted to eBooks: “This website is perfect for readers like me, who want to watch their book budget. This website also allows the author to rate some of the content of their book. I want to know before I buy if a book the level of profanity, violence or sex in a book. I’m excited that authors can now rate their books for the readers.”
AppNewser Free eBooks of the Week: Galleycat editors pick a few free eBooks every week. To submit email your pitch to appnewser [at] mediabistro [dot] com.
Author Marketing Club: “No longer do you have to dig up your links to the best places to submit your books. We’ve put them all together here for you in one spot. Just click on the logos to load each site’s form, fill in your details, and you’re done.”
Bargain eBook Hunter: “If your title is currently FREE on Amazon, we want to know about it! Simply use the Contact Form to let us know about your free title and we will consider listing it on our site. There is NO COST to you if you contact us and we choose to post your free book. We accept all genres except erotica.”
Books on The Knob: “Bargain reads, free ebooks and book reviews for the Amazon Kindle, nook, Kobo, Sony and other ereaders, Kindle Fire, nookColor, Kobo Vox, and other tablets, along with some games, music, technology and computers tossed in now and then.”
The Cheap: “This website was created in an attempt to let other Barnes and Noble NOOK users know that there really are plenty of deal priced books for NOOK readers. Here at the Cheap we, a group of deal scouting women, inform you of free and low-cost books. These change frequently so please be sure to check in often. We do our best to share only legitimate offers.”
Digital Book Today: Includes both free and paid options for writers looking to promote.
eReader News Today: Features bargain Kindle books and free Kindle books.
Flurries of Words: “we have both FREE and PAID advertising options. There are currently five FREE advertising options available: 1) Free Book Find (for permanently or temporarily free books) 2) 99 Cent Book (for permanently or temporarily 99 cent books) 3) Bargain Deal (for books over $0.99 but under $4.99–either permanently or temporarily) 4) Indie New Releases (for books newly released within the past 30 days) … 5) BOOK OF THE DAY”
Goodkindles: “we are a place where you post your own article about your title and can reach the readers. We do not review your book – we give you a platform to tell everyone what do you think is most interesting about your book and what you think will interest readers so much that they will go and buy your book.”
Pixel of Ink: “If your book will be listed as Free ($0.00) on Amazon.com in the next 30 days, then please let us know. Pixel of Ink may attempt to feature your book on the day it is free, time and space permitting.”
Spicy Romance: Fill out the submission form, send a 600 to 3,000 word excerpt and a cover image. AUGUST 7, 2014 UPDATE: THIS SITE NO LONGER ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS.
