Authors, Publishers, Groups
Every year Americans celebrate the change of seasons and gear up for the big holidays and this year is no exception. When readers thoughts (and books in stores) turn to holiday celebrations, from the "tricks-and-treats" of Halloween through the reflections of Thanksgiving to the exuberance of Christmas and New Year, Fresh Fiction has two special promotions designed to help you reach over 250,000 readers this autumn.
- BOO-K Spectacular - October 10 to October 24th
- Holiday - November 21st to December 15th
- 12 Days of Christmas - December 25th to January 6th
Each autumn promotion includes a unique newsletter, daily social media messages, themed contests, interviews, blog posts and reading list. Readers love to learn about new-to-them authors or to find out what's up with their favorites so it's a chance to put your name and books on their radar.
So... here's the scoop on our special AUTUMN PROMOTIONS!!!
Where would we be without a little "treat" and maybe some "tricks" in our lives? The shelves are filling up with special themed anthologies and books for the seasons. Kids are back in school and there are little nooks and crannies of time to be filled with GOOD books! Why not yours? And get your book and name on those early-bird holiday shopping lists!
Now is the time when gifts are bought, given and exchanged and in a worrisome economy one of the best values is a book. The idea though is to get YOUR book into buyers hands or on their wish lists! Sometimes it takes a little nudge... or a few nudges. You can take advantage of the holiday spending season by getting your name and books into the minds of readers during November and December.
12 Days of Christmas
On the wish list for most readers is gift cards to their favorite book retailer or a new e-reader. With the prices falling on e-readers and new models announced, this special short promotion is a great opportunity for authors and publishers to put their books out into the market. Sign up today to be included in the 12 Days of Christmas.
Buy each special promotion for $129 each or buy our Autumn Special for only $349 (you'll save 10% if you buy the Autumn Combo!)
