THE BASICS

The Fussy Librarian sends subscribers a daily email, which is where your ebook will be featured once. 

We have two newsletters, each with its own login system:

THE MOSTLY BARGAIN EBOOK NEWSLETTER (120,000 subscribers)

This newsletter is mostly bargain ebooks, as the catchy name suggests :) You can promote free ebooks here if you want and they will be included in our other newsletter. Please note we do not recommend adding a second genre if you are doing a free ebook promotion in this newsletter. (Yes, we like money but we also want you to get a good value.) For all of our prices, click here please. 

In order to be considered, your ebook should have:

  • A quality cover.

  • A price of $5.99 or less on the day of the promotion. We strongly recommend putting your book on sale for 99 cents or $2.99, but it is not required.

While we recommend having a few reviews for your book prior to submitting it, we do accept new releases. Books with more reviews generally do better.  

We do not offer guarantees or predictions of how many copies your book will sell. It varies widely from genre to genre and even from title to title within a genre. If it's your first time promoting with us, we strongly recommend promoting one book, in one genre, to see how it fares and whether our mailing list is a good fit for your books.

If we determine that your book has quality control issues -- either in the cover or the content -- we reserve the right to refund your fee.

Still have questions? Hop down to our FAQ section or send us an email.

THE FREE EBOOK NEWSLETTER (200,000 subscribers)

About this newsletter:

  • The book must be free to everyone for the entire day of promotion (U.S. time).

  • Your book will be included on our free ebook page every day of your free promotion, even the days before it appears in our email newsletter. If your book is permafree, we'll feature it for two weeks on our website. 

  • You can include links to Instafreebie, Author Reach, or your website. Everyone must receive a copy of the ebook, though. 

  • We recommend making the book free for at least two days. Some readers don't open their email until the second day. 

  • We offer next-day service at no extra charge if you submit the promotion before 6 p.m. central time.

  • Permafree book? We offer a subscription model if you want to promote regularly. Details here.

  • Prices vary by genre and are listed here.

BARGAIN EBOOK PROMOTIONS: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do you accept new releases, pre-orders or box sets? Yes.

Can I promote my book in more than one genre? Yes, you can reach subscribers in an additional genre at one-half of the regular price. Please note that if a subscriber has selected both genres you list your book, it will appear only once in that subscriber's personalized email. This eliminates duplication and helps reduce the size of the email file.

Do you promote erotic romance novels? Yes, if they're tastefully done and the couples are consenting adults.

What's your policy on subtitles for nonfiction books? If it appears in large type on your book's cover, we'll include that in the title area. If you want to include the book's subtitle, you're welcome to include it in the synopsis of the book.

My book isn't live yet. Can I submit it now? Yes, we do this with a lot of new releases. Include 10 random digits for the ASIN and amazon.com for the URL. Then just email us when the book is live with the new information and we'll update everything.

 

MORE INFORMATION

Goodreads links

Provide a link to your book's Goodreads page so readers can add it to their "to be read" list. Adding this link can generate sales weeks and even months after your promotion has run. Free.

 Self-scheduler 

You can pick the exact date of your promotion. Prefer weekends for your promotions? Just want the first available opening? You decide. 

Free reminders 

 You can specify when you want us to send you a reminder email that it's time to promote again — anywhere from 21 to 365 days.
