I'd want an historical fiction genre before I considered this, and I've always found Freebooksy's promotions disappointing, so not sure this would be a good fit for my books. Interesting idea though if rather expensive. I'll be intersted in feedback from authors after the event.

Thanks, everyone, for reaching out! Here are the answers to your questions ... Marla: The orders are placed through Freebooksy's site, and you'll see them (and all of your past orders) there. C M: Yes, absolutely that's okay! Jill: We're starting with a limited number of genres so that we can test the waters, see what works, and see what we need to change ... including, yes, adding more genres in the future if that's warranted! Alexander: Some authors like to spread out promotions over different days and others like to maximize the number of downloads they get on one day in order to get a higher ranking and, therefore, greater organic reach from being higher on the chart. It will appeal to some authors and not others -- and that's totally fine :)

Hi, I have booked both on separate dates in different months. Is this still okay? Best wishes C m neary

I was excited to see this as I use both of your services every month, however, I write contemporary romances and that category is not listed 🥲 Will you be adding it?

I can do the same thing any day of the week at the same price, so what's the benefit except for saving a few minutes of setup? In my opinion, Freebooksy is overpriced and underperforms compared to Fussy Librarian and other sites. I really don't see how indie authors benefit from this at all.
