If you were trying to get your Kindle ebook noticed and make it a bestseller in a huge competitive market, what would you do? Maybe give it away for free? Of course. Amazon already does that for qualifying Kindle ebooks. for a limited time, for just a few days. How can you top that? By publicizing those free days in social media!
That’s what authors Carmen Desousa, Derek Blass, Zach Fortier, Elise Stokes, Alan McDermott, CR Hiatt, Patricia Paris, and Shannon Mayer did on July 24th and 25th to promote their books. If you were following our @VisAdj Twitter feed, you saw their books announced all day for the last two days. If you weren’t following our Twitter feed, now you know what you are missing!
Now that the giveaway is over, their numbers could drop precipitously. (That’s drop like a rock, for you folks in Rio Linda.) That’s why BookPushAlooza, the One-Day Book Push, is today, July 26th. They want to keep their numbers up. There’s even a RaffleCopter contest you can enter to win a $100 Amazon Gift Card or $25 Amazon Gift Card!
If you didn’t get your free Kindle books, you can help a fellow writer (or all eight of them) at very little cost. All of the featured Kindle ebooks are now 99c each today in the exclusive little Kindle BookPushAlooza 2012 Store that I created on Amazon for this event. (You could even buy other books or anything else — optional — while on Amazon, too. Hint hint. Wink wink nudge nudge.)
Here are the nine featured BookPushAlooza books, in alphabetical order:
- Allegiance, a Thriller – Derek Blass
- Cassidy Jones and the Secret Formula (Cassidy Jones Adventures, Book One) – Elise Stokes
- Curbchek-Reload: Curbchek’s darker meaner cousin – Zach Fortier
- Dark Isle (Celtic Legacy Book 2) – Shannon Mayer
- Enemy in Blue, A Thriller – Derek Blass
- Gone at Zero Hundred 00:00 (McSwain & Beck) – CR Hiatt
- Gray Justice (Tom Gray #1) – Alan McDermott
- Land of the Noonday Sun – Carmen Desousa
- This Time Forever (Cedar Cove Series) – Patricia Paris
If you want to help these authors publicize their books and the BookPushAlooza event, go to @VisAdj on Twitter and retweet the items about them. Or just retweet anything with the hashtag #bookpushalooza. Or do something on your favorite other social media site. They’re popping up like mushrooms, you know.
Maybe next time we’ll have a BookPushAlooza event for our Visual Adjectives authors. Watch for it.
Of course, I would be remiss if I didn’t take this opportunity to plug my own Kindle ebook. You can order Alice & The Snark At The Tea Party: Favorite Lewis Carroll Poems And Their Inspirations, With Commentary from Amazon now for $1.99 or read an excerpt and a sample page from Alice And The Snark At The Tea Party first.
