Free or Affordable Book Promotions

I created a similar list a few years ago, but times change. New places arrive and old ones shut down. Here are some of the current ones I use, some free, some with variable pricing. Some with special fun features.

 

The Independent Author Network, truly does what they say they are going to do. They have free offers and low priced (ONE-TIME FOR LIFE PAYMENT) plans, that make it worth the few extra bucks.

Readers Favorite offers free reviews, and fairly quickly I might add. They are professional, in-depth and honest. Your review gets posts on their site, Amazon, and good reads. Plus so much more.

All Author gives you a landing page of your own. They also create fun interactive blurbs and gifs. You can set up auto-tweets too. Check out this cool GIF I made.

Book Bub also gives you a landing page and you can follow others. I haven’t seen anything truly interesting about them as of yet. But free is free!  (I can’t tell you how many time I’ve written boob bub – laughing had to share)

The Awesome gang, reviews and gives you a spotlight page. They email every Sat new books and reviews.

The Indie Reviewers, once again Free reviews! Which we all need to pimp our books. The one big bonus with finding these reviewers is that most of them have their own blogs and post their reviews on them. This gives you a completely different audience with every single review. The hard part is finding a reviewer who is not so bogged down that they have the time to accept you.

Many new authors don’t know Amazon has its own author promotion site. Author Central. Make sure you sign up…and don’t forget to update your info as you change.

Of course, everyone knows about facebook, twitter, Instagram, Pinterest…and on and on – however, don’t underestimate creating your own website, even if it has to be free for a time.

Write everywhere – Blog on multiple platforms. Connect your blog to your Amazon page. Also submit to magazines, contests, guest blogs. Even simple idea’s like writing reviews or plots on IMDB can gain you new eyes. Don’t think any platform is too small or doesn’t have even viewers. Give it a shot!

Using the Blog as Promo

Hi All! I’m blogging on a Wed night…say what?

I’ve come tonight for the first time ever off my Sat schedule, because I will be attending my – also – first ever, book signing this Saturday. While I am away doing that, I want to share with you all other things I write.

First and Foremost my newest Sci-Fi Novel, KEPT, was published last night (paperbacks available soon) if you can check it out.

 

 

I also am a contributor to 1428Elm.Com an online horror Magazine. I was writing weekly about my favorite TV show, Znation. Which is now over until next season, so I’ve picked up the show Ghost Wars. You can check out my weekly articles Here :

Free Promotions

Free Ways to Promote Yourself - I am updating an older post with new places I've found.

I have run across many ads that charge for promoting authors and their works. They all spout that they are the best.
They will gain you thousands of followers.
They will help you sell more books.

But where is the proof?

In fact, I was rather shocked to find an author stating that they had the secret to building your author platform for only $299.00!

And they have not been the only one I’ve seen. To me that is not selling books, it’s selling empty promises, and making money off others dreams.

How much money are you willing to spend as an Independent author to promote your work?

I work full-time and write whenever I can. I do not have a bankroll to toss around at advertising or self-promotion. Over the last year, I have been clicking link after link, reading advertising sites, and trying to find any free way that I can.

I am going to share that with you, for only - $0.00

Below are all the links to building your author platform for FREE...
We have the internet at our disposal, use it.
Yes, you may have to set aside one day every two weeks – or one hour a day – whatever works for you and do some research. And then more time building a website, and still more time creating new profiles on multiple sites. But unless you want to pay, this is how you need to market your own work.

Use the internet it’s your most valuable tool.
Search, read, ask and find.

Good Luck and Happy Writing.
