KDP Select Free Book Promotion Links

Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) Select Free Book Promotion is a feature where an author can offer a book enrolled in KDP Select free to readers for up to five days.  You can pick the specific days you want to run your giveaway, from between one and five days in a row. I've decided to offer Mirrors & Mist, Book II of The Oxbow Kingdom Trilogy free through KDP Select on May 14 and 15 (next week).

Below are websites that will promote your KDP giveaway for free. Some of these sites don't guarantee a listing with their free option (but they offer paid options for guaranteed and/or increased exposure). I've applied to list my free days on all of them, so I know they're active and current (and have a free option, since that's all I used this time).
If you're going to promote via these sites, I recommend having all your book information ready to cut and paste, as they each have forms asking for some (or all) of the following:
  • Author name and e-mail
  • Book Title
  • Link to Book (Amazon)
  • ASIN Number
  • Genre
  • Book blurb
  • Book cover jpg
  • Link to your website
  • Twitter name
  • Days your book will be Free
There are several more sites that cater to niche books (erotica, christian, children's) and can be found here (along with many of the links above).  Best of luck with your KDP giveaways!

Author Update: After much outlining, plotting and story-boarding, I've begun writing Warlock & Wyrm, Book III of The Oxbow Kingdom Trilogy in earnest, and am sitting at about 8,000 words, which is still way to early to start predicting a finish date.
