Frequently Asked Questions

A high-quality email list of readers is one of the greatest assets in any author’s online marketing toolkit. With an email list, authors have control — you can directly connect with readers, highlight your books, and turn them into lifelong fans.

While the numbers vary by contest, our normal range is approximately 600 – 1,200 emails per author, with reported email open rates of more than 50 percent.

Yes! Our promotions have been and will continue to be GDPR compliant. (Details here.)

Readers have to check boxes by the names of the authors whose lists they want to join, indicating consent, and must also check a box indicating they acknowledge they will be receiving newsletter / marketing emails from them.

We will also be including relevant documentation in the files we distribute after the contest ends, as part of a new “GDPR Kit” for authors involved in our promotions.

In the event of a cancellation, a 100% refund of payment will be issued in all cases if requested prior to the author sign-up deadline, as stated on the contest sign-up page. If a cancellation is requested after the sign-up deadline expires, a 50% refund will be provided.

Our promotions are open internationally to all traditionally and indie-published authors, including authors with books enrolled in the following programs: KDP Select, Kindle Scout, and Kindle Worlds.

Please visit our support center here for more information.

For indie authors, we recommend offering ebooks via BookFunnel.

If you’re a traditionally published author, you can send a physical copy OR offer an ebook as a gift via Amazon or Barnes & Noble (or you might contact your publisher to see if they can help).
