Jumpstart Book Sales with Book-a-Day Sites

100s of websites to promote discounted books

Taking advantage of the Amazon KDP Selects free promotion days is a phenomenal way to build your credibility and grow your platform as an author.  With your book being free for the allotted 5 days, you substantially increase your ability to garner positive book reviews and hook readers onto a series where they will need to purchase one or more sequels.

While Amazon does a lot to help authors, you will need to point people to your free book to get all the benefits of this program. Once you have directed enough people to your book to move it up the Amazon free rankings, then Amazon will start directing people to your book for you.

The problem that most people have is that they don’t have a large enough reader base to  do this on their own, and even if they did it would make the most sense to point your most loyal fans to your book once it is back to it’s normal price since these are the people most likely to actually purchase your book.

So if you have to get a lot of downloads without asking your existing audience, what is the best way to do it? When using your Kindle free promotion days or promoting a discounted price for your book, the best way to market is to tap into the thousands of readers already looking for deals on books to read.

There are many websites devoted to sending out daily emails to their subscribers with a list of free books everyday. Many of these sites send their lists to tens or hundreds of thousands of readers every day. This is is a tried-and-true way of promoting your book to people who would never see it otherwise.

Submitting your book to websites with large readership helps you grow your free ranking without using your list of fans and readers.

Since these sites first sprang up 10 years ago, many of them have closed down completely or stopped accepting submissions. This page was created to become the definitive database for ebook listing sites that primarily accept free and discounted ebooks. We have found a few similar sites that list “book a day” on the web, but they are  always several years behind. When going through links, it quickly becomes evident that over half of them are gone, and a list from 2012 is just going to give you a bunch of dead links and misinformation.

Below is a regularly updated database of ebook promotion sites with all the information you need to know about each one, including application fee, possible upgrade options, and book requirements. If you have another favorite site where you submit ebooks, you can tell us about it on our “contact us” page.
