How do I Let People Know about My Free Book Promotion Period?
1. There are dozens of places that list free Kindle books. All you have to do is find them
2. and follow their submission guidelines
But that’s the hard way!
You can harvest all the places that list books by doing a Google search, which is time consuming, exhausting. It keeps you from writing and doing things that directly and more immediately turn into revenue.
Or you can get the list of places to promote your free Kindle books, plus tutorials for Kindle and Nook publishing in Effortless Digital Publishing: How to Publish a Book on Kindle and Nook.
The video and audio tutorials are short and to the point, so you can take action quickly. You also get a resource guide, Q&A, and new tutorials as things change, and much more.
Then once you publish a book on Kindle and enroll in KDP Select, you can use the 8–page listing of places to post your free promotion. That will help you grow your following and want to publish more books too!
Follow your bliss!
