Publicizing Kindle Select Free Promo

The Kindle Direct Publishing Select program has been a true game changer, especially for new authors. By signing an exclusive deal with Amazon, authors can promote their book free for five days per quarter.

How It Works
Enrolling your book is as easy. Go to your Bookshelf and select your book, or multiple books.

Go to Promotion Manager and fill in the form. The fields are self-explanatory. Type in anything you want for Name. It is a private field for you to keep track of your promos.

Notice the small print. The promos do not always start and end exactly on time.

I would advise a few days lead time to contact kindle book sites, blogs, and add your promo information using their contact form, or follow the instructions. Many sites will not post books with only a few reviews or with low ratings. These were the links I found for Michal's Window.

List of Sites to Contact:

I'm sure there are a lot more sites, facebook pages, twitter handles. If I missed any, please let me know in the Comments. Thanks!


  1. Fantastic article, Rachelle. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Terrific list, Clare. Another link is They approached me to ask permission to list my book yesterday. They focus on the UK market.
