An Interactive List of Book Promotion Sites & Free Submission Tool   3/21/2016

An Interactive List of Book Promotion Sites & Free Submission Tool

One of the most cost-effective ways to promote any book is to run periodic free or discount promotions.

But simply making it free or discounted on Amazon is no longer enough.

You also need to spread the word to as many potential readers as you possibly can.

To help with this, a plethora of book promotion sites have sprung up over the last few years, including this one, Readers in the Know.

The interactive table. submission tool below lists all such promo sites of which I'm currently aware.

To help you to create a shortlist of those most appropriate to your needs, I have further classified these sites according to various important attributes.

If you know of any site which I have missed (must be currently accepting submissions from indie authors), or if you have spotted an inaccuracy in any of the information provided, please let me know via this contact form.

My recommendation, when running any book promotion, is to submit your book to as many of these book promotion sites as you can manage.

Book promotion is essentially a numbers game.

You need to get it in front of the largest possible number of potential readers within its target audience.

Of course, only a small percentage of those it reaches will actually end up downloading it, but the bigger the initial audience, the more sales you're likely to get.

Amazon.com, Inc.   3/20/2016


Amazon.com, Inc. often referred to as simply Amazon, is an American electronic commerce and cloud computing company with headquarters in Seattle, Washington.

It is the largest Internet-based retailer in the United States.

Amazon.com started as an online bookstore, later diversifying to sell DVDs, Blu-rays, CDs, video downloads/streaming, MP3 downloads/streaming, audiobook downloads/streaming, software, video games, electronics, apparel, furniture, food, toys and jewelry.

The company also produces consumer electronics—notably, Amazon Kindle e-book readers, Fire tablets, Fire TV and Fire Phone—and is the world's largest provider of cloud infrastructure services (IaaS).

Amazon also sells certain low-end products like USB cables under its in-house brand AmazonBasics.

Amazon has separate retail websites for United States, United Kingdom and Ireland, France, Canada, Germany, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Australia, Brazil, Japan, China, India and Mexico.

Amazon also offers international shipping to certain other countries for some of its products.

In 2011, it professed an intention to launch its websites in Poland and Sweden.

In 2015, Amazon surpassed Walmart as the most valuable retailer in the United States by market capitalization.

Category:E-book suppliers   3/20/2016


A significant number of organisations and companies can now supply books in electronic formats ("ebooks").

Some of these are commercial booksellers, some are commercial ebook websites intended to sell content for particular devices, some publish free content, some archive copies of out-of-copyright works, some act as commercial publishers, and some are conduits or aggregators acting on behalf of publishers or independent content providers.

List of book distributors   3/21/2016


This is a list of book distributors, companies that act as distributors for book publishers, selling primarily to the book trade.

The list includes defunct and merged/acquired companies, and distributors whose primary business is not books, such as comic books.

The companies may provide exclusive distribution rights, or act as a wholesaler or warehouser of publisher's titles.

Many of the companies distribute other products, and some also sell directly to the public.

Book distributors offer a consolidated list of publisher's titles, such that bookstores can purchase from a wider range of publishers than if they had to open separate accounts with each publisher, who often require a minimum order that the bookstore cannot meet.

Most small or independent publishers have relations with a distributor, including self-published authors, who often use services like Amazon.com to sell to the public.

The large publishing companies, including the "Big Five" (Penguin Random House, Hachette, Macmillan, HarperCollins and Simon & Schuster), act as distributors for the numerous imprints they have acquired over the years.

Writer's Digest   3/20/2016

Wikipedia   Writer's Digest

is an American magazine aimed at beginning and established writers.

It contains interviews, market listings, calls for manuscripts, and how-to articles.

Writer's Digest is owned by F+W Media, which publishes the annual edition of Writer's Market, a guide containing a list of paying markets — magazines, publishing houses, and contests — as well as an index and tips for the beginning writers.

The magazine is published eight times per year.

Writer's Digest also sponsors several in-house contests annually, including the Writer's Digest International Self-Published Book Awards and their Annual Writing Competition for short stories.

Writer's Digest partnered with book publisher BookBaby, the sister company of CD Baby, in August 2014, to create a self-publishing division called Blue Ash Publishing, to provide instruction and education alongside book publishing and printing services.

Blue Ash Publishing takes its name from the home office of the Writer’s Digest editorial team located in Blue Ash, Ohio.
