Since 2015, we've helped over 8,500 authors, just like you, sell more books by growing email lists, engaging audiences and getting you in front of hyper-targeted readers who can turn into life-long, book-buying super fans!
Joining is super easy! 1: be writing in the promoted genre 2: offer digital copies of your lead-magnet or book using bookfunnel or a similar program and 3: agree to promote the giveaway! We take care of everything else, including the prizes. (Scroll down for details with Q&A.)
Promote whatever book you like inside the giveaway via a BookFunnel link: first in series, new books, old books, prequels, novels, novellas and/or boxed sets!
We make it easy for you to help get the word out with custom, personalized social graphics, pre-written email copy, timely reminders and more!
You share the contest with your newsletter and social media audiences. We also share the contest with our targeted audience that can reach over 3 million monthly romance readers!
Readers enter your contest via our mobile-optimized page. Because everyone who enters gets a free, digital copy of your lead-magnet or featured book, every single person who enters now has the opportunity to discover YOU & YOUR amazing books!
During the contest, readers who select your book to read will be automatically subscribed to your newsletter in real time! After the contest is over, you get a cleaned list of everyone who joined and can enjoy engaging your new fans & readers!
Beyond nearly every asset or advertisement you can run as an author, the subscribers on your email newsletter can become your greatest book buying asset.
While every single promotion is different, you can normally expect to receive at least 750 subscribers from each giveaway promotion. We have had many authors receive well over 3,000 and even as many as 12,000. However, as there are many factors involved, we always recommend expecting at least 750!
We highly recommend using a service called BookFunnel. (However, if you have ProlificWorks or a similar service that is also effective.)
After joining, simply put your BookFunnel or ProlificWorks lead capture/lead-magnet link in your intake form and we will take care of the rest.
Yes! Our promotions are GDPR compliant in MANY ways:
You can use a similar service such as ProlificWorks, etc. As long as you can provide a link where readers can subscribe to your mailing list and download your featured book, you're good to go!
These promotions are open to all authors who are writing in the genre featured. If you are looking for a different genre simply click here >>
We work with authors from all areas of publishing from traditional to indie/self-published, large audiences to small audiences! If you have a great book readers need to know about… YOU are welcome to join!
When we first started help build author platforms back in 2015 many authors were overjoyed to see THOUSANDS of new readers signing up to their newsletters. Right after, however, the question came up “this is great, but what do I do with them?”
The answer is actually really simple: Send them messages! Any time you post on your site, on social or have a new release, tell them about it in an email!
It's truly that simple. Connect with them, keep your list clean & watch your sales soar!
Our goal is to always have a different group of featured authors on each promotion. Doing this allows for fresh readers to be sent to the promotions each and every time.
That is why we ask that you only join a MAX of 2 promotions (per pen name) each quarter. Again, you may feature each penname up to 8 times per year.
Our new giveaway lists are published roughly 2 weeks before the start of each quarter and you will be able to sign up to a max of two per penname.
Our email newsletter giveaway campaigns are always more effective than any others for a few key reasons:
We like to keep it between 15-20 authors per giveaway so each gets great exposure with the readers.
We share the giveaway on our own social medias and our daily newsletter! However, it is vital that authors share as well. We will prove you with personalized graphics, your giveaway link, and some copy suggestions for your email newsletter.
