I Heart Lesfic is coordinating a sale to run September 10-14. Five days.
I’m looking to recruit tons of authors. All promotion will be handled via social media. Since the sale will involve numerous authors, I don’t want anyone to email subscribers to avoid flooding inboxes and annoying readers.
Instead, I’m asking authors to post at least one message about the sale on their personal Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, blog, or whatever social media you prefer. Heck, even telling your friends will help. I Heart Lesfic will handle the rest.
There will be four price points: Free, $0.99, $1.99, and $2.99.
This is a lesfic sale, meaning all sub genres are welcome as long as the book is classified as lesbian fiction.
There is a limit to how many books each author can submit: no more than 3 per author or pen name. To clarify, if you publish under Jane Doe and Jane Smith, you can submit 3 titles for Jane Doe and 3 titles for Jane Smith. I know some authors have collaborated with fellow lesfic authors. I will count these separately. Again, if Jane Doe and Jane Smith cowrote novels, Jane Doe can submit 3 titles, Jane Smith can submit 3 titles, and writing duo Doe and Smith can submit 3 titles.
If you’re with a publisher and aren’t in control of your pricing or if you can’t lower a price of one of your books right now, you can still get involved if you have a book or story that’s either permafree or one of the price points listed above AND the item is available on Amazon. This means freebies on your website, BookFunnel, Instafreebie, etc will not be included.
Are you interested in joining the promotion?
This is what I need from you. Please include all of the following in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. It’s extremely helpful if you don’t simply hit reply to this email to supply all the details. Again, please send your info to email@example.com and include in the subject line, “September Mega Lesfic Sale.”
- Author’s name
- Sale price (Remember there are four price points: Free, $0.99, $1.99, and $2.99.)
- Original price
- Subgenre (Romance, Erotica, Paranormal romance, Romantic Suspense, etc)
- Short blurb: Only 4-5 lines.
- Twitter handle (No worries if you aren’t on Twitter.)
- Is the book in Kindle Unlimited? (It doesn’t have to be in KU to be included in the sale, but it does have to be discounted.)
It works best if you don’t run a Kindle Countdown deal. They are only valid in the US and UK, and from experience, readers outside the US and UK will feel left out, which could potentially result in negative comments, especially on social media. Negativity spreads quickly, and it may impact all the authors involved in the sale.
The deadline for supplying the details is September 1st. The sooner you can get me the details, the better.
Again, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org, and include “September Mega Lesfic Sale” in the subject line.
Please feel free to spread the word to other lesfic authors.
I look forward to hearing from you.
