I found a sight that's free to authors wanting to promote their works.

It's really a great site where you can promote your books, display your book covers, Blogs, and post links etc..

Hi everyone, Would love to know if you've run a book-related challenge or contest, whether it failed or succeeded, and why. Please share:

Thanks, Steve

In my launch of my new book The Only Way to Paradise last week, I ran a contest.  Anyone who signed up for my newsletter and blog got a free professional photo (my husband is a photographer) of Florence/Tuscany suitable for framing.  David had fine-tuned them ages ago.  Since my book takes place there, the was a lot of interest and they cost less than a dollar to print at Costco.  I've given lots of contests, usually for book giveaways, but those are too expensive when you're self pubbing and you want your readers to buy your book, not wait to see if they win it.

Thanks for the novel idea.

As a publisher, we routinely run giveaways od advance copies of out books on  It creates awareness for the book and the people that receive them are usually good to post a review!

Was there a review of Once Upon a Decade: Tales of the Fifties?
Comment by Jason Huddle on June 27, 2011 at 6:18pm
I'm sure there were, Clark. I'll look them up and pass some tlinks on to you.  The best review of all was being nominated for an Indie book of the Year award! Congrats again on that!

Thanks for the congrats, Jason.  I would like to see the reviews; I might be able to use one for marketing.

Also, Comfort on Facebook has an article on the book being Finalist in the Indie Book Awards, but there is no cover image for the book.  Will you put the image in?  It will attract more attention.

Comment by Jason Huddle on June 27, 2011 at 6:49pm
I'm not sure if I can do that on facebook, but I will try.  I know we sent out images of the book cover when we sent out the press release.
Comment by Clark M. Zlotchew on June 27, 2011 at 7:31pm
You have the cover image of many other notices, e.g. Jame Houston Turner, Agatha Remembered, The Ugly Tree, by Tamara Lyon, and many many more.
