We're up to #26 this morning in the UK (#54 in the USA). That's not a bad starting point for today's FreeBooksy/ KindleNationDaily/AwesomeGang promos.


... and #19 @ 6pm (NB - edited to avoid unnecessary bump).


And #12 @ 20:30!

Is it stand-alone?

RE: Cleaver Square - FREE until tomorrow

BookBub's email has just gone out. 7000 more freeloads in the last 50 minutes... insane. Nobody beats 'em.

That's brilliant! I can't afford BookBub unfortunately, but I doubt they'd accept my novels anyway. But well done. I've downloaded it and I'm sure I'll enjoy it.

Cheers, Julie.

BookBub have rejected me plenty of times. They initially turned me down this month for Dead on Demand, then changed their mind and asked for Cleaver Square, so it's always a gamble. Free tends to be easier than paid, and already-selling stuff is almost a prerequisite. There's no harm giving it a go. If you get the standard pro forma rejection which looks like this:

Quote: Thanks for your submission. Unfortunately, our editorial team has not selected this book for a BookBub Featured Deal at this time.
Due to limited space in the email, we’re only able to feature about 20% of the books that get submitted to us. Our editors review all the submissions that meet our minimum guidelines for a certain category and price point, and select the books within that group that they believe will perform best with our members. Other books the editors reviewed were better fits for our readers’ current tastes.


then what they really mean is "not now, try again later". If they've got an issue with the book such that they'd never feature it, then they'll say that explicitly. They're often sensitive to covers, blurbs, etc.
Their UK-only deal is quite cheap. The UK email segment, even in crime fiction, is £75 and that's their biggest/ most expensive list (@610,000 subscribers).

RE: Cleaver Square - #1 in free on .co.uk and .com. LAST DAY FREE!

Today is the last day free. We've managed to nab #1 free on both sides of the pond, so it's not been a bad run at all. After today, Cleaver Square will still only be 99p.
