I keep having days that would have been great marketing days slip through my elfy mitts.

I decided that a list would be a good way to track these, and discover more!

Let me know if you know of some that are relevant to authors, artists, or others that fit and I will add them to this list.

Alex Carver | 770 comments Thanks for this, will be useful when I finally get something released.
Well maybe not Valentine's Day (I don't write romance)

Hey CB, can you actually do me a favor, and post this in your Amazon secrets thread? We'll change the name a bit to reflect that it covers a few things, but this is great information to have.
Plus, I think if we put anymore sticky notes in this file it'll push new threads onto the 2nd page x D

Certainly Riley, I can.
It might get lost there though. Should I maybe put this into the Marketing folder instead of Author Help?

In fact, I will do that to start at the very least, It makes more sense there anyway.

Somehow I have not seen this thread before.

C.B., you may want to add Banned Books Week in there. It's the last week of September.
