In truth, there is no huge mystery involved. Tens of thousands of e-books are released every month, over-saturating the market. No matter how good your book is, it will never sell if people do not find it. If you do not promote your title, it will be lost in the sea of millions and millions of other e-books that have already been released. I have scoured the internet looking for ways to get the message out. I have explored social media options and looked into both paid and unpaid book promotion services.

Promote Your eBook #2 - Submission Service
There are dozens of different websites out there that are dedicated to promoting e-books. Most of them will ask for payment in order to list and promote your book. However, many also accept free submissions. What that means, is that with a little luck (there are no guarantees for free submissions) and a good book in your hands, you may just get your title listed and promoted for absolutely no cost. For a fee, I will do all this work for you. I will submit your book to up to 40 different e-book promotion sites depending on how many requirements your book meets.
