Plotting Murder Promo Author Signups

A 4-In-One Author Promo!
2 Tasks for Readers to Complete. 2 of Your Books in a Book Fair.

Whether you’re interested in growing your newsletter email list, BookBub, Amazon, or Instagram followers, or having someone follow your website, this author’s choice giveaway will give you the opportunity to connect with readers.

The event runs August 9-29. All subgenres of mystery, thriller, and suspense are welcome, traditional, cozy, detective, procedural, paranormal mystery, forensic, mystery romance, romantic suspense, psychological thrillers, supernatural thrillers, political thrillers, etc.

Each author who participates receives two entry buttons in the Rafflecopter. You select the task you want you from a list of eight choices.

In addition, you can showcase up to two of your books in the optional book fair included with the event (which has its own separate giveaway) at no extra charge. Your books must be 3.99 or less. FREE books are welcome.

Prizes will include a number of kindle/ebook packages, determined by the number of authors participating. Multiple prizes up for grabs means more chances to win for those entering the giveaway.

Author fee to participate in this promo is $25, which includes your contribution toward the prizes and FB ads. Invoices are sent within 24 hours of signup and are due on receipt. Three days before the event begins, you will receive a packet that includes pre-written posts, tweets, and a graphic to share with your social media and newsletter subscribers.

All Rafflecopter buttons direct readers to the link you provide to perform the task you’ve chosen. If newsletter signups are your task, entrants will be sent to your own signup form/landing page, where you control the subscriber process. This promo DOES NOT include a bulk email list.
