Site to Promote Ebooks
« on: March 08, 2014, 06:59 AM »
One of my fellow authors on another thread recommended this for ebook promotion:
http://www.ebooksoda.com/authors/:
She said it gave her quite a nice sales bump when her book was listed in the newsletter, so I thought I'd share it with all of you!  They are nice people in the UK, but accept US ebook authors whose books have more than 25 reviews with an average rating of more than 3.5.
Have fun, everyone!

I tried this, but when I got to the part where I was supposed to put in the dates of when I wanted the promo to run, I couldn't key in anything. I even tried copying and pasting from Word and that wouldn't work either. So I couldn't finish the submission.  :bluesad:

I'm sorry, AnnH.  When I did it, I couldn't type in anything either, but to the right is a small sort of calendar, and by clicking on that, the dates came up and I could select them.  I hope that works!

There's no calendar showing for me. :(
 
I couldn't submit a jpg of the cover either, but could click on a link to continue anyway. Nothing like that for the dates.

Maybe you could send them an email?  I hope it works for  you.  I know that the upload of the cover took a while and I had to click "next" without being messaged that it had worked.

Thanks so much for sharing this!  I just added my novel, and it worked without a hitch.

You're both so welcome, AnnH and marielamba.  I'm glad it all worked out for both of you! I hope it'll work for other Blueboarders, too. :)
