Basic & Deluxe Promos

If you would like to hire me by the hour,
paying a lot less per post, check out this post.

What You Get 

$10 Basic: A promo post with the option of including an excerpt, a custom synopsis, an embedded preview of the novel from Amazon, and an optional embedded YouTube video (one that the author submits).

$25 Deluxe: A basic promo (as above), two optional (previously published) guest posts, a top ten guest post, and two interviews. 

As you can tell, the deluxe package is almost like having a mini blog tour, except all of the posts will be included on this site. However, I am more than happy to have people use content on this site, so if you would like to have people copy posts from this site, by all means do so.

Also, the content you provide for the top ten list and the two interviews does not have to be original. It can be from your blog, a blog tour you've done, or just about anywhere else. 

Twitter Advertising

Your post will be tweeted out via various accounts ... over and over again. And I will continue to tweet out your post for the foreseeable future. In fact, I'm still tweeting out posts from the first part of this year and have no plans in the near future to stop. (I even occasionally tweet stuff from last year.)

Paragraph Formatting

Instead of me spending time trying to format responses that have multiple paragraphs, I want the author to tell me where the paragraphs are.


If you want paragraphs to look correctly on your post, you must submit them this way.

First of all, do not skip lines on the form. All your paragraphs have to be together. One big paragraph in other words. I will separate them when I am formatting the post, but I don't want to have to guess where the paragraphs should separate, so ...

Second, put an asterisk (SHIFT-8 on a PC) in-between paragraphs, like the following example.

This is the first paragraph.*This is the second. 

I will search for asterisks and when I find one, I will know to start a new paragraph there (and delete the asterisk, of course). Some authors have actually used the words "This is the first paragraph." There is no need to do this. All I need is an asterisk.

Other Nitty Gritty Stuff

There is no date option. I run the promos in the order in which I get them. I do not promise to have any particular promo up by a certain date or a certain time of day.

I also do not promote sales or free periods. The same goes with giveaways. 

I do not email you to let you know I have your payment, and I also won't email you to let you know that I need something. If you forgot to include it, it simply won't be included in your content.

You are more than welcome to email me, but I won't respond to queries about whether I have your payment or whether the forms were filled out correctly. If you have a question before the fact, that is a different matter altogether. Ask away, and I will do my best to help you.

However, don't necessarily expect a prompt reply. It might take a while for me to even see your email. I get a lot of mail.

If the form doesn't say that your response has been recorded, clear your cookies, restart your browser and try sending it again. If you have to do this, please email me and let me know so I know to look for a possible double entry.

Here's my email for reference:

Interview Questions 

To see the interview questions before you fill out the form, check out this post. Some authors in the past have done a horrible job with the interviews. Bad grammar, punctuation, and the like. Or barely answering the questions.

  • Take your time.
  • Present your best work.
  • Go into a little detail. 

The quality of the interview is really up to you.

Secret Word

~~Don't Forget it~~

Both on the Paypal Form (which is ON THIS PAGE, not the Paypal website) as well as the Google form, we ask for a secret word. We use this to match up your payment with your package details you submit via form. Choose something other authors aren't likely to choose — perhaps something unique to either you or one of your books.
