I don't think there is a timeline to stop promoting your book. There is a point where you switch gears and promote yourself especially if you have other books to be released. Really you are correct and there is better times to release your upcoming book particularly if you want to enter it into award contests. It also makes a difference if you would like your book to be released in time to be bought for Christmas gifts. I don't know of any special pricing for eBooks. I keep mine around $5.99, but many are $2.99. You may want to run sales and lower your price for a little while. I wish you good luck and great success. (less)
