Because I’m excited, ecstatic, thrilled, delighted (I could go on with every word my thesaurus can come up with, but I think you get the picture), I’m going to run a little charity promotion for my ebook in celebration of the print book. I’d love to do a promotion for the paperback, but you wouldn’t believe how expensive those things are!
Anyways, for those of you who follow me, you’ll know I’m a huge fan of pretty much any and all animals (excluding monkeys, cockroaches, crickets, and grasshoppers). Therefore, I wanted this promotion geared towards our furry, scaly, and slick friends. There are so many charities out there that I would love to support, and I plan on doing one of these promotions with each book I release, so hopefully we’ll have a variety eventually, but for this one, I’m going with the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals). They’ve done some amazing work and I donate to them whenever I can.
So, here’s my plan. For the first two weeks in May, I will donate 100% of the profits I get from all ebook sales for the Keepers of Arden: The Brothers Volume 1 to the ASPCA. The start of the promotion begins this Thursday, May 1st and will run until Thursday, May 15th. In order to receive the highest royalty, I ask those who can to purchase from Smashwords, Amazon secondly. Those two offer the highest percentage and will get us the most money towards our donation. I’d love to sell 500 copies which would put us around a $1,000 donation, hopefully more depending on where people buy from. So that’s it regarding the promotion. If anyone has questions, just post a comment or shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I’ve updated the My Books tab to reflect where you can purchase print copies. Right now, there are only two locations, but in a month that should expand to Barnes & Noble online. I’m also doing a giveaway on Goodreads starting the 1st of May for a signed copy.
That’s about all I have for now. On Thursday I’ll be posting a reminder and also adding this to some of my groups on Goodreads.
Hope everyone has a wonderful week!
