Author Topic: (SIGN UPS CLOSED) Double-Cross Lit cross-genre promo Romance & Crime/Noir  (Read 269 times)

Maybe you've heard, I'm starting a new website dedicated to book sale cross-promos.

The tag is Love and Hate, and the genres are anything Romance and anything Crime or Crime-Noir. (Books do not have to feature both genre types, or they may. It's a spectrum thing.) The dates for the promo are February 22 to Feb 24 of 2019.

I'm still building the site, but the signup form is now open.

What's a noir story without a femme fatale? What's a romance novel without a bad boy? Crime and romance go together like Bonnie and Clyde. And what better month to feature tales of twisted love than February? Happy Valentine's Day.

To join this promo, your book must be a novel, a novella, a collection of flash fiction or short stories at least three stories in length, or an anthology for which you are listed as curator or editor; and must be 99 February 22 - 24 of 2019. It may also be a box set for which you are listed as author or author team, editor, or curator; and may cost up to $1.99 on the dates of the promo. By submitting a title, you agree to use your social media accounts and email list to promote the program. The book must be available on Amazon.com, but can also be available on other eBook platforms. This form closes at midnight February 11th, 2019 US Eastern time.

The form can be found here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdlxxvuVZI2o1rABdMNH3wWwsqCE7yS35n1u2ct8ryrUMCimQ/viewform?usp=sf_link

Will you be sending out notifications to the list from the last promo with dates and links?  I don't have any books that qualify for this promo, probably, but I'll try to remember to tweet it out when the time comes, but I'll need the reminder.

 Yes.  Actually I'm starting a new list for writers and I'll be migrating all the addresses from the last primo to it. But first I'm sending a note to old list next week.

Got the email, thanks.

Hopefully Serial Stalker will fit for the crime one & I have Restless Spectres for the horror one (both novels).

Will add them later when I have time.

I love this, thank you.  :cheers

Sounds like a couple of perfect fits.

Entered both, thanks.

They're both wide but will only be discounting at Amazon, so I clicked 'Amazon only'.

Perfect. I should probably adjust the form to account for that possibility. ;)

Also while I'm here, I'm trying to drive traffic to the site to get signups for the first two promos. It's sort of a beta run, but really it's solid free ebook advertising just like any 99 cent promo.

So I'm looking for Facebook groups I can post about this on. Recommendations appreciated.

Also if you're established on Reddit author groups, or want to blog about it, or can think of any other way I can get the word out, please let me know.
