      Is this a new site? Yours? Or have you used it and found it beneficial? Reason I ask is that the site has a Google Page Rank of 0, and I am trying to include sites that I have either tried or look authoritative.

      • Galyna

        Andy, yes, this is my site and it is new relatively to others in your list.
        I am actively working on promoting it on Facebook and with SEO so it can become even better very soon! 🙂

    Hi Andy,

    Thanks for the listing. I’m a bit fuzzy on this regarding: If an ebook is on Amazon currently then can the same ebook be submitted to the various resouces you’ve listed.?

    Thanks muchly.

      You are not submitting the book to them, just letting them know that your book is available on Amazon. We use these sites to make people aware that our book is on a free promo, so get more downloads.

    Andy – Thank you very much for this list.. My book had slipped to 99 of top 100 in my garden & Horticulture>Herbs niche. I scheduled two free days 3/8 and 3/9. Then posted the info to the sites you suggested except for the one paid one and the one that needed an account. The result was some 650 downloads to date. My book has moved from 99 to #1 in the top 100 free and moved over 250,000 serps in the overall kindle store to #328 over all.

    The Snickslist also runs a couple of other sites where you can get a months promotion for $8 to 47 major social sites and to the search engines. After my book goes back to paid I will use that feature.

    Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful list.

    Best to you,
    John B. Green

    Hi Andy,
    thanks for your tips. I have a free book and a 99c promo in July, so your list very timely. Author Marketing Club has a list that is worth checking out.

  • Sarah Laird-McVeigh

    Thanks for this list Andy. I used all of them including most of the names on the Author Marketing Club list and have had 2,370 downloads as of day 4 of my 5 day free promotion. A fabulous resource as I didn’t have a clue how to promote my eBook before I read your Kindle Publishing book.

    Thanks again!

    Hi Andy, thanks for this list, I read your Kindle publishing book every time I am about to publish a new one. Last time, I didn’t check this list, I am glad I have this time, this will really help me get more downloads when I offer my book for the 5 days for free and I hope more reviews than the last time I did the free offer.
