Places To Submit Your Book For Free Promotion

In my quest to help authors promote their book I am going to make a list of places where you can submit your book for free to get it in the hands of readers. I realize that it is hard to get your book in the hands of readers and hopefully this resource will grow. If you know of a place that is not on the list submit it to the comments and I will add it.

First place is of course our site.

    I seem to have run into the same block with the Twitter link as the others. I’ll submit without the twitter for ONE HUNDRED NAKED GIRLS –
    It is: @Terrible Tibor

    Cheers,
    Andy Halmay

    Hi Awesome
    Really like this site so I have posted by book info and my author interview but they don’t seem to be featured on your pages. I can’t find my book info listed, for example. I am missing something?
    Thanks

    Hey Vinny,

    I submitted an Author Interview a few days ago but I’m starting to get worried that something went wrong after I hit the Submit. What should I do?

    Thanks,
    Tony

  4. says

    Vinny- Once again, you guys are here for me. Thanks so much.

  5. Rosita Rubio says

    Do you do free promotions for erotca?

  6. Heath Buckley says

    I love this site and I really liked what you did to promote my book ‘The Love Spell’ with the interview etc. I am going to make it free to download for one day. Where on your site can I announce this please?
    Many thanks
    Heath

    Hi,
    I just submitted my book Crossroads Serenade for the free promo day on Aug 21 2013 but my photo of the book cover won’t upload. Can you pull it over from the Amazon page? Please let me know. Maybe it showed up on your side but I didn’t see it.
    Thanks,
    Laurie Adair Grove

    Hi Laurie

    Your image came through just fine. The cover never shows up on the email confirmation. Your book is all set up and ready to go. Thanks for submitting.

    Hi there, Vinny.

    By chance, do you have a UK affiliate?

    Or, for that matter, any recommendations for free distribution in other countries?

    Thanks much.

    Chris F.

    I am not sure what you mean by a UK Affiliate. All the sites listed above are international.

  11. says

    I have submitted my book “Famous Kids in History” to you and Pixels of Ink but I don’t see it listed on either site. Did I overlook it?

  12. says

    You are very welcome Mike I hope you sell a lot of books!

  13. K says

    I am completely mortified to have to write this, but I originally listed my novel for a free run from Oct 10-14 and I am no longer able to do the free run for those dates. I realize how much time and effort you put into these listings and that any changes are an extreme inconvenience on your part. So, if it isn’t possible to change, I understand and will unfortunately have to withdraw my submission from your page. If it is possible to resubmit the dates to Oct 19-23, please let me know.
    Thank you very much.

  14. says

    Not a problem, I can handle that. No reason to resubmit. Good luck with sales!

  15. says

    I just submitted Eternal Infinite for FREE Days coming up, 10-3 thru 10-6. Do I need to resubmit the book each free day it lists on Kindle or just the one time?

  16. says

    We only take book submissions once. Setting it for the 3rd is correct way to go.

  17. Patrick Rutigliano says

    Hi Vinny,

    I recently filled out the author interview form, but it stalled/borked when I submitted it so I filled it out and sent it again. If you find two, just delete one of them with my apologies.

  18. Gail McGaffigan says

    Hi,
    Due to mess-up, my promo days for Killer Ride are 11/10-11, not 11/9-10. I am so sorry about any inconvenience.

    Hi Vinny,

    Mistakenly I submitted my book “Modes of Transportation: ABC Book of Rhymes” to you twice. Please disregard the second submission.

    Thank you

    Happy Holidays

    Yael

  20. says

    Hi Yael

    No problem, it happens!

    Happy Holidays to you and your family also.

  21. says

    I want to do the $10 advertising. I know you have some of my info for when I had a free promo. Do I need to resubmit all of my information and where would I do that? Thanks!

    Cyndi

  22. says

    Hi Cyndi

    I see you also sent me an email. I will answer your question there.

  23. Felicia Mires says

    Hi Vinny,
    I submitted my book Fairies & Fantasy for three days, 2/17-2/19/2014. Here’s my twitter @FeliciaMires
    Thanks for the help. I appreciate the newsletters and the twitter updates.

    Hello,

    I tried to submit an author interview, but it gave me an error because I do not have Smashwords and pininterest accounts.

    Also, I added the incorrect cover image for Murder in Mystic and would like to add another. Please advise how to do that.

  25. says

    Hi Marilyn

    Sorry you are having issues. Can you tell me exactly what the error said? As for the wrong image send the right one to vinny@awesomegang.com and I will fix it.

  26. says

    hi–i submitted my book, The Spoon From Minkowitz, for a free review, and thank you for offering that. I haven’t seen it featured, and just want to be sure you got my submission.

  27. says

    Hi Judith

    I don’t see your book in our system. I do see an author interview which I just put live. You can see it here Judith Fein. When did you submit your book?

  28. says

    I just submitted my book on your site, but also wanted to ask if you could add my website, http://www.choosybookworm.com, to your Places To Submit Your Book For Free Promotion page. I started the site to help out indie authors, like myself, get their name, and books, out to as many people as possible. Thank you so much for your help with this and for featuring my book. I truly do appreciate it. :o)

  29. says

    Hi Jay

    I added your site, glad to connect with others that help authors promote their book.

  30. says

    Hi Vinny!

    Thank you so much for featuring my site. I truly do appreciate it. :o)

    I’m sorry to ask this, but the site is spelled wrong on the page. The link works great and everything, but the name has an extra ‘e’ in it. Could you fix the name on your site to say ‘Choosy Bookworm’? Thank you again, so very much, for your help and for listing my site on your page. :o)

  31. says

    Hi Jay, Your welcome! Hope you can return the favor with a link somewhere :)

    Took care of the typo!

  32. says

    Hello,
    | was wondering was my book featured as part of the free promotion?

    Joseph

  33. says

    Hi Vinny
    I applaud your efforts to help authors promote their books.
    All the best

  34. says

    Thank you for your help in getting my books noticed and for an easy to navigate site.

  35. Marylyn Beare says

    Hello,

    Just wondering if you have received my book submission, Simply Starfish. Was wondering if I have to put it on timeline on the facebook fan page or wait for it to be listed by you. Also, does it have to be free before doing so? Am new to this site and therefore asking these questions.

    Thanks,

    Marylyn

  36. says

    Hi Marylyn

    We have your book info and it will be live tomorrow just like you asked for. As for the Facebook fan page, you can post it there also. WE will be posting it there also.

  37. says

    Hi – I see all these comments referring to Twitter addresses. I think your forms are looking for a http:// URL address whereas Twitter doesn’t have those for each account but uses the @twitterhandle format to point to accounts. You must be able to change this on the format template.

  38. says

    Hi Michael That was indeed the problem. I have removed the twitter box altogether because half the authors only used the @handle and half did it the way we asked. It became to problematic to edit.
