Hey there author friends,
I'm Nick, the author behind FreeThrillers.com. It's an experiment to test the value of running branded joint promotions via InstaFreebie. During our first promotion (April 2017) over half the 16 authors added over 800 subscribers – InstaFreebie promoted us twice to their mailing list :-)
Please note: The May 2017 Giveaway is now full, dates for the June Giveaway will be announced towards the end of May.
HOW IT WORKS
I'm getting quite a lot of enquiries about how it works, so here's the info.
- Check the criteria below, and if you are interested fill in the form below.
- I'll select around 15 authors to be part of the promo.
- If you get through you'll get a welcome email, and a link to join a private Facebook Group for coordination and info sharing.
- I build the promo page.
- The promos run for 9 days (Friday to Sunday).
- We all promote the offer to our mailing lists (twice), and on social media.
- Readers can peruse the books and download anything they like.
- Authors receive the email addresses of people who download their book via InstaFreebie (obviously).
What does it cost?
Nothing, except your time and commitment to promote the giveaway :-)
I'm happy to donate my time, the website and the hosting in return for featuring my book in each giveaway, but consequently I don't promote every giveaway to my list.
It's not practical (or desirable) to handle this on a first come first served basis. I'm looking for authors who fit with me and each other.
- Your book/novella needs to be a thriller... obviously :-)
- It's a complete story (novellas and short stories are fine, but no bait and switch)
- It's free and available via InstaFreebie
- It hasn't been featured on FreeThrillers.com in the last 3 months
- It has a professional cover and blurb
- You have a mailing list of 1,000 or more readers (but see below if you have less)
- You agree to promote the giveaway to your subscribers, and on social media.
- You undertake to share your results so we can all know whether it was worth it.
BONUS CREDIT MAY BE AWARDED FOR:
- Authors with higher quality mailing lists
- Books that are well reviewed on Amazon or Goodreads
I aim to reserve 3 spots for authors with tiny mailing lists... because it's good to help people out :-)
Who am I?
For those of you who don't know me... I'm Nick Warren, author of Execution Is Everything. I'm also the owner of a web development studio in the UK, a business I ran for 18 years before stepping back to chairman in 2016.
I'm friendly, so feel free to email me at email@example.com if you have any questions.
Otherwise please submit your details in the form below.
P.S. Your submission will be considered for the June giveaway.
