Marie Silk | 208 comments Hi everyone :) here is my Facebook page where I post about publishing and writing in general https://www.facebook.com/MarieSilkPub...

If you are running a giveaway or promotion for a free or 99 cent book (that have a family friendly title and cover) just let me know and I will post the promotion to my page. You don't have to have a Facebook account. Just message me here or post in the comments with a link to your book and specify which days it will be on promotion.

Please let me know either the day before or the day of and I will get it shared! :)

Crystal Dawn (crystal_dawn) | 55 comments Hi Marie,

I'm running a Facebook and Twitter competition for my blog that you could maybe help me with? I'm doing it for the benefit of helping promote independent authors. I'll just copy and paste it below, so you don't have any issues finding it. :)

Hello everyone,

I am the owner of a book review website, dedicated to promoting and encouraging the purchase of independently published books. For the month of February (as a trial), we're offering a competition with a promotional prize to one lucky author, where they can have a banner promoting their work, displayed FREE, from February 15th - March 15th. We all know how hard good promotion can be to find for independent authors, so although only a small prize, it could be invaluable for your work.

Winner will be drawn the 15th of February, with changes done immediately after the draw with the winner notified. This prize does not automatically include a review, however, the winner is welcome to apply through the regular channels on our main website and they will receive special consideration. Review applications are welcome by all, but won't however, be properly considered until the end of February/early March due to a full schedule.

Entry is simple and can be done at either Facebook or Twitter (or both for double entries).

For Twitter simply,
- Follow the page
- Retweet the pinned post
- And reply with a picture of your banner for everyone to see!
https://twitter.com/SharkBookBlog

For Facebook simply,
- Like our page.
- Like this post.
- Share this post (must be done in public settings).
- Reply with your banner for everyone to see!

Goodluck to everyone! and I look forward to seeing your banners!

Good luck with your sale!!

Marie Silk | 208 comments Hey everyone!

To get the most out of your free and 99 cent promotions, check out the following sites for getting your promotion advertised in popular email newsletters and across social media. Some of them are only for books that will be free, some of them are for books that are on sale for 99 cents. The sites that say "FREE" after them are free to advertise with but do not necessarily guarantee that your book will be advertised with them. The ones with a price will cost to have your books advertised. I listed the ones that bring me the best ROI.

For best results, plan in advance to submit to the sites. Most require that submission be at least 3 days in advance of your promotion.
