Summer Blow-Out Promotion

Authors, Publishers, Groups

It's hard to believe but the summer is almost here. People are planning their vacations, arranging children's activities and getting ready for the favorite time of the year. Fresh Fiction is kicking off the season with a SUMMER BLOW-OUT! Running from May 24th (yes, we're anticipating the Memorial Day weekend) through Labor Day, September 5th -- we'll be running separate contests, blogging, reading lists, recipes, interviews and reader activities as well as our regular monthly contests, Books Not To Miss and columns to reach over 300,000 readers.

The main events include:

  • Pack Your Beach Tote - May 24th to June 14th
  • Christmas in July - July 5th to July 26th
  • Dog Days of Summer - August 7th to August 28th

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 SUMMER BLOW-OUT!!!

You'll get THREE contests (Pack Your Beach Tote, Christmas in July, and Dog Days of Summer), guest blog day with a contest or giveaway, one day advertisement spot in our daily Fresh Pick newsletter (banner construction is not included, you must provide a 468x60 banner), enhanced visibility on our author lists and book pages.

You can get the whole SUMMER BLOW-OUT (May 24th to August 28th) for only $349!

Or you can buy each special promotion for $129 each (you'll save if you buy the Summer Blow-Out!)

Our multi-pronged strategy for promoting contests includes a central location on the web site contest index and weekly promotion in the Fresh Fiction Newsletter (216,000 opt-in subscribers) as well as social media promotion including Facebook, Twitter and more.

  • contest index with teaser description of contest and link
  • promotion in Fresh Fiction newsletters
  • description of contest with one image in Fresh Fiction Special Promotion Newsletter

You'll receive the unique entries and winner information on the second business day after the conclusion of your contest. FreshFiction confirms the winner's mailing address and forwards it to you. The author (or designate) is responsible for the shipping of the prize within a timely period.

All we need is the following information:

  • Contest Title (under 20 words)
  • Contest Prize
  • Contest Description (if you do not provide one, we'll use
  • the summary of your current book)
  • Featured Book (can be current, past or upcoming)
  • URL link (we default to your personal website, but you may have a special page you'd like us to link to -- an excerpt, special letter page, etc)

You may also include an image of your contest prize, if you wish.
