It's by far the best newsletter - yes really. A big thanks for all the work you do. The drabbles are such a clever way of getting people to scroll down.

Is there any way of getting the drabbles reposted to the Facebook Drabbles page? We get new likes for the page but it is sadly not updated any more.

Thank you, Anna.

Jonathan, there is a problem with all posting to Facebook, including the offers. I've arranged for a consultant developer to help me fix it, but he's booked up for a few more weeks. you are welcome to manually add any.

Rosen, I sometimes make a donation at the time I'm submitting, but I'm entirely happy to do that even if my book isn't featured on that occasion. I figure that it, or others, will be included at some time in the future and I've benefitted enormously in the past.

RE: BookHippo.uk - Ideas for Improvement

I recently found out that a Kuffer's book didn't appear in the feature queue even though she had submitted it. These gremlins do occasionally get into the system. Therefore, if you submit a book and it isn't featured on day 1, please drop me a line so that I can investigate.

Hi Rosen,
I assumed that not all books submitted would be featured. Are you talking about the paid-for featured books?

We don't do paid for features.

There are a few reasons why books get filtered out, such as too many previous features, but usually Kuffers books should go in. I see being an active member of KUF as a seal of approval, as I know people on this site take publishing as seriously as the big traditional publishers.
