Apply for a Book Promo
To apply for a promotion, simply fill out the form below and we’ll get back to you within a few days to let you know if your book has been accepted for a promotion.
Note: If we approve your book for a promotion spot you MUST drop the price by midnight Pacific Standard Time the day before your promotion or risk having your title removed from our newsletter promotion. For example, if we feature your book on January 1st, your price must be dropped by midnight PST/3am EST on January 1st. Please contact Amazon or your publisher to arrange this.
Our book promo newsletter editor is very selective, and our team reserves the right to deny this service for any book that does not meet our editor’s expectations.
Tips for Scheduling an Ebook Promotion
Here are some additional tips to help make your ebook promotion a success.
Discount your book at the right price
Many failed book promotions were unsuccessful because they weren’t priced appropriately. It’s usually not enough to just take $1 or $2 off the price of your ebook if your book is priced at $9.99 or above.
We always offer eBook promotions at $0.99 or free, and we recommend you do the same unless there’s a very good reason not to. Different eBook promotion sites have different pricing requirements, so make sure you read the details for each book promotion service you intend to use during your marketing efforts.
Offering your book for free for a limited time can ultimately help you to sell more books by helping you get reviews and exposure.
Choose your Amazon categories wisely
Because over 90% of eBooks are sold on Amazon.com on the Kindle platform, the categories you select for your book on Amazon could make a huge difference in your sales.
Have you chosen the right categories for your ebook? Choosing the most appropriate Amazon categories for your ebook can play a big role in your success.
You can check out our lists of the most competitive and least competitive Amazon categories and we highly recommend you read our guide on How to Become a #1 Bestselling Author on Amazon which will help you select the best categories for your book.
Get more book reviews
As we noted in our guidelines above, TCK Publishing will only promote a book in our newsletter if it has at least 10 reviews and an average of 4.0 stars. That’s because readers demand high-quality books, and many readers won’t consider buying a book with poor reviews or less than 10 reviews.
Most sites feature similar rules, which means you’ll need to use your network to reach out to members of your target audience, offer some free books, and kindly ask for book reviews as soon as your book is released (if not sooner).

Schedule your promotion at least 1-2 months in advance
This is not a requirement for TCK Publishing, but it’s a very good idea to plan your eBook promotions at least 30-60 days in advance. That’s because some book promotion services may get fully booked if you wait too long to notify them about your promotion.
The more time you give the book promotion sites to feature your book, the more likely they’ll be able to promote your book during the day(s) you need your book promoted.
