And it paid for itself and at least a couple of dollars more.

I have serious doubt it would do well for Historical Fiction since they don't have a specific HF list. Mystery or Romance would be more likely to benefit, I suspect.

An easier way to see if it works is to sign up for the newsletter as a reader and maybe check their articles and see how the books are doing. From the little I saw, New in Books is quite useless, but I signed up and I'll keep taking a look at what happens.

Edit: Some fantasy books are actually doing well, but it's hard to know if it's just because of New In books.

Thanks for the info and congratulations. Do you think the book did better on release with it than it would have without it? How does it compare to other new releases?
It hasn't released yet. It has had more pre-orders than it would have without it though.

I don't see a link for asking questions.

I haven't used Outlook in close to 20 years. I use Thunderbird, from Mozilla. It has very tight spam controls. (I've never yet found its spam folder.) From time to time, it either gets tighter and rejects my family's emails to me or it gets slightly looser for a bit and a few spam emails slip through. I've often wondered if that has anything to do with the spam controls of my web host, SiteGround.

I use my own domain names bought many years ago, long before my webmistress switched my website hosting to SiteGround. At one point I found a good intro deal from GoDaddy on domain name renewals. The next renewal offering wasn't good so I moved on to some other renewal offering. I suspect that's usually how it works.

@LilyBLily Click on the account (email address) in the left hand panel. From there you can click "View Settings For This Account". Then "Junk Settings". It will show you options to loosen or tighten your spam filters. In addition, it will also show you where the junk folder is if you have one.

The mail you're not getting could also be getting caught by your domain/website hosting company. Log in directly to their email interface from a web browser and you may find junk mail that is caught there. Also, you might be able to change spam settings there. For example, white listing your family and friends.

Google is still $9/year for basic domain name if anyone is comparison shopping.

Agree that the "marketing and promo placements" line has no details, so the question is, what would they be? I assume those are why the price for the service varies from $299-$499. On the good side, it could mean you could choose the promo sites to buy into that you think would work best for your book. But how many? Why not ask for a detailed breakdown?
