2. Something For The Weekend

Something For The Weekend

The Something For The Weekend Listing lets you promote one title across a three-day weekend, appearing mid-way in the daily newsletters on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. 

Readers are busy people who
 don't always get a chance to check the newsletters every day, or may be too busy to buy when they do. This is especially so at weekends, but with the three-day weekend slot you get three chances of being seen and making a sale.

Required metadata:


1) Date of listing

Something For The Weekend slots start on Fridays. Please indicate the Friday date on which you wish your promotion to begin.

2) Title

As on cover.

3) Author Name

As on cover.

4) Price at time of promotion.

We will use the price showing on the retail sites 48-72 hours before the listing begins unless clearly instructed otherwise. Bear in mind we send separate newsletters to different countries. If the promotional price is only for one particular country or one particular retailer do let us know.

5) Blurb

For the newsletters the blurbs need to be short. One line is ideal! It's just to grab the reader's attention and get them to click through to the retailer product page. Think twitter! If your blurb will fit in a tweet it's perfect!

6) Genre

Give us up to three different genres. Be creative! We have no problems with Historical Zombie Romance Thriller or whatever you feel will convince a reader to click through to the product page. Just keep it short!

7) Cover

Upload your cover along with your other metadata.

We use images at 200 pixels width, so anything from 200 pixels wide and up is fine. Anything smaller may look hazy when we enlarge it.

8) Links

Okay, here’s the deal: We will send out your listing in multiple newsletters each carrying the same titles but each with different retailers and currencies specific to the destination country/region.

Give us the key US link for your title for Amazon, Google Play, Kobo, Apple, B&N, Smashwords, Books-A-Million, All-Romance/OmniLit and Txtr US.

Be sure also to include links to the library service OverDrive and the subscription services Oyster and Scribd if you are in these.

NB: We mentioned several times encouraging readers to click through to the product page. This is for your benefit, not ours.

We are not an affiliate operator and unlike most other promotional newsletters we do not make anything from click-throughs or sales you may make through these newsletters.

This ensures we are retailer-neutral, and do not favour one outlet over another either in our daily newsletters for readers or in our newsletter and blog for advertisers.
