19 Free Ebook Promotion Sites to Help Promote Your Book.

Hey. I told you about this great community I am part of, and because I know how to make the most of a forum, I came across an awesome post from a member on the Number One Book Club called Manny de Castro. He’s got a website called PublisherHelper and having just glanced over his site, it’s definitely a place I am going to spend more time on. Find his site here. It’s still a small platform, but I encourage anyone who visits here to get involved there.

So, I can’t really take any credit for this list of free ebook promotion sites below. But what I did was check out his list, added soem meat and placed links for you to find the places better. Let’s dive in!

Pixel of Ink

Pixel of Ink features daily publishing of Free Kindle Books and Hot Deals. On any given day, there are thousands of Free Kindle Books available. Each day there are hundreds of newly free Kindle Books that they sort through to bring you what you want – the best of the bunch! In addition to Free Books, they also share some really Hot Deals on other Kindle Ebooks.

Inspired Reads.

I got this site looking around on the previous one. They’re Reads is all about finding and sharing Christian Kindle Books on a Budget! If you are looking for Christian or Faith-Based Content, then you will want to visit them!

Ereader News Today

This platform features a book a day, at least. They feature Kindle accessories and great deals on Kindle books.

BOTK is almost the same as ENT above. It features Kindle Tools, Free and very well discounted books and provides a little bit ofsupport. I haven’t found the place where you can submit your book (because of time constraints), But, I suggest you…

I was looking for one of the sites suggested by Manny and I came across this one instead. Free-Ebooks.net claims to be the internet’s #1online source for free ebook downloads, resources and authors. It’s a membership site where you leverage them in your publishing, but they also offer the following:

Thatbookplace.com aims to be a new home to an exciting world of books for the internet. They wish to make it a place where authors can come and meet their fans.

Joey Pinkney.

I know you would find value with Jeoey Pinkney’s site. I interviewed him once, and last of what I remember, he does a interview series he calls: 5 Minutes, 5 Questions With… and then gives a free ebook away with the post to those that choose to participate by commenting. I am sure Joey would love to add a feature to his site where free ebooks are available.

Ebooks habit

They are a site dedicated to helping ereader readers find free ebooks. With thousands of books being free each day on Amazon, they work hard to curate a list of some of the best free ebooks, so their visitors don’t have to hunt them down themselves. Each day they produce 3-4 lists of great ebooks that are free at the time of posting, as well as some bargain books that day and other great sale prices and deals in the world of ebooks and ereaders.

Visit EbooksHabit here.

Your Turn.

In the meantime, tell me what have I missed on this list, I’d love to add your resources. Also, tell me if you read this and you’re bummed I didn’t post the whole thing in one go. Will you come back for the rest latest tomorrow?

I have some of my friends I will add as well as look at the interviews we’ve done with authors and see what they used.

I appreciate you all a lot, but have to split myself in a lot of different pieces and put on a lot of hats lately. I hope things will become normal soon!

  9. My site, The Writer’s Drawer (www.thewritersdrawer.net), promotes ebooks for free. My only condition is that you also submit a piece of your creative writing (poem, short story, essay…) to the site for readers to enjoy.

  10. These sites are really interesting. I’m amazed at how big the ebooks game is and how fast self publishing is growing. It’s becoming a whole ‘nother thing on it’s own. Who would have thought? I guess there’s so many people who lounge around on the net today though and it’s at your fingertips. The world is changing.

  11. Thanks Ivin, just came across your list, so very useful!

    • You’re right Link. That is probably the first step to a successful business.

      You should use your own name when you comment. There a facility where you can use your name and an @ followed by your keyword and you can still get the link-love.

  19. I have to applaud Pixel of Ink for doing an amazing job! I’ve found more wonderful books through this blog/website/email than anywhere else. They promote the authors and I’ve, personally, found great success in just one posting at Pixel of Ink, because of the widespread distribution.
    Emily Woodhouse recently posted..שרתים וירטואלייםMy Profile

  20. I think you could add Author Marketing Club. It is a great place to submit your e-Book when it goes on sale. Maybe you can start your own list with free or cheap e-books :-)
