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 20th (yes, we're anticipating the Memorial Day weekend) through Labor Day, September 3rd -- 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 250,000 readers.

The main events include:

  • Pack Your Beach Tote - May 20th to June 10th
  • Christmas in July - July 8th to 29th
  • Dog Days of Summer - August 5th to 26th

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 SIX contests (June, July, August, plus Pack Your Beach Tote, Christmas in July, and Dog Days of Summer), guest blog day with a contest or giveaway, banner run for each of your books, 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, inclusion in our Author News section and other Fresh Access services.

You can get the whole SUMMER BLOW-OUT (May 20th to September 3rd) for only $399!

Includes Fresh Access

Or you can buy each special promotion for $129 each (you'll save over $300 if you buy the Summer Blow-Out!)

Summer Promotion

Fresh Fiction Contest Management includes: two contest pages: the contest description with entry page and the "thank-you" page. The contest description includes two images: author publicity photo, a contest image (if provided) or the cover image of your latest or upcoming book as well as a three paragraph description of your contest (or copy provided). A link to your web site and thank you blurb is provided on the successful entry page. Your bibliography on FreshFiction.com is also listed on the "thank you for entering" page.

Our multi-pronged strategy for promoting contests includes a central location on the FreshFiction.com web site contest index and weekly promotion in the Fresh Fiction Newsletter (196,000 opt-in subscribers) as well as social media promotion including Facebook, Twitter and more.
