What is New Year, New Reads?
It is a book promotion event where authors offer their books for 99cents on January 1st through 3rd of 2018. Any book is welcomed. Please note: if you have adult content, make it obvious, so appropriate aged groups know. Books can be discounted to 99cents OR be perma-99cents.
Why have a sale right after Christmas?
The idea behind New Year, New Reads 99cent Sale Blog Hop is to attract people who were given gift cards for Christmas. We all know someone who is impossible to buy for, right? We give them gift cards so they can buy whatever they want. New Year, New Reads offers temptation for people who are ready to spend a little money on themselves!
How do authors sign up for this blog hop?
There is a linky list at the end of the post. Add the link to your blog (or Twitter or Facebook or even your Amazon Author Page) right now. Then, on New Year’s Day through January 3rd, post what books you are offering and where the reader can grab your book.
Make your book EASY for readers to find and buy! Don’t bury the link. Pin the post at the top of your Twitter or FB or make it prominent in your blog post.
