Marketing Mondays-Trying to Use Kindle Unlimited Promotional Days to the Fullest.


In a few weeks, I'll be pulling most of my books from the Kindle Unlimited program and I plan on making full use of their promotional free days on the books that remain in the program. That means that for the next few months, I'll have a flurry of free books.

On Monday, I have an ad with Ereader News Today (ENT) for my novel, A Ghost of a Second Chance. ENT is one of my go-to advertisers. They have always preformed well for my books. I also set up a host of promotions using freebie sites.  You never know whether or not you'll be picked up by the free sites, and I really appreciate those that tell me. (Although, I have to say, I really appreciate all of them.) I'll google my book on Tuesday to see if there are more and let you know.
Here are the ones the ones who said they'll be featuring my book:

  1. Gave away 1962 books, had more than 300 visits to my blog, sold 5 books in that series, and had nearly 4,000 pages read. This covered the cost of the ENT ad by about $10 dollars. Hopefully, there will be a residual...
