In light of my recent sale on The Fine Line, I have become quite familiar with many websites that help indie and traditional authors promote their discounted books. Today, I’d like to help other authors by providing a detailed list of book promotion websites. If you know of any other good sites, please leave them in the comments!
If you are planning a sale, it’s always a good idea to contact these sites well in advance. I advise at least 30 days, but many will accommodate you in a week or even a few days. My book has been promoted on some of these sites and have seen some really good results! However, I have not worked with all of the sites listed below, therefore I advise that you do any research you feel necessary before paying for any service, to verify that you will see results.
Please note: These are not book blogs or book review sites. They are mostly book sale/freebie subscription sites.
These sites will promote your book for free or at a low-cost (many of these websites offer free promotion without guarantee or a guaranteed promotion for a fee):
