Christmas in July Promotion
Authors, Publishers, Groups
The weather has us convinced, summer is HERE! It's a busy time of the year for families and people. Taking vacations, trying to stay cool, finding things to do, and most importantly the right books to read! Fresh Fiction has two special promotions designed to help you reach over 300,000 readers this summer.
- Christmas in July - July 6th to 26th
- Dog Days of Summer - August 8th to 24th
Each summer 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 SUMMER PROMOTIONS!!!
Christmas in July
July is traditionally hot and busy with the celebrations of political and national origin. It's also time to long for the coolness of a winter holiday, and so the mini celebrations mix the traditional with the dreams of winter and become "Christmas in July." So, from the 6th of July through the 26th, we're taking a long view at the lethargy of summer and kicking it up with contests, talk of summer reads and sharing of good recipes.
Dog Days of Summer
Finally, August rolls in...hot, dry, dusty we're tired of vacations, kids and want nothing more than to lay in the shade and kick back with a good read! Fresh Fiction agrees and shares the end of the summer blockbusters with readers: what might have been missed, cooling thoughts and sneak peeks at the fall's new awakenings. Hope you'll join us in August for the "dog days!"
