Two New Indies Unlimited Features

two new free features from IUHere at Indies Unlimited, we are always looking for ways to bring great titles to readers, and opportunities for authors to get the word out about their books. So, beginning in October, we’re introducing two new features to help do just that: First Friday Pre-Releases and Kindle Unlimited Fridays. Similar to Thrifty Thursdays, these will be “self service” features, meaning authors should follow the instructions in the posts when listing their titles in the comments sections. Books for self service features do not have to go through the grueling IU vetting process.

First Friday Pre-Releases

Many folks are attempting to submit their pre-release books for free IU features. Pre-release books are not eligible because they cannot be vetted. We can only vet a title after it has been officially released. Since the Amazon pre-release program has become so popular, authors will now be able to post about their participating books on First Friday Pre-Releases. Detailed instructions will be provided for authors each month in the body of the article. The following information will be required from authors:

  1. Book title
  2. Author name
  3. A one sentence blurb (about tweet length)
  4. The Amazon link to the book
  5. The date the book is scheduled to be released

Kindle Unlimited Fridays

On the third Friday of each month, authors with books available in the Kindle Unlimited program (part of KDP Select) will be eligible to post their books in the comments section of the Kindle Unlimited Fridays feature. Since readers get unlimited free books (not a member of KU? If you’re interested, you can get more information here), there is no need to list a price. The following information will be required from authors:

  1. Book title
  2. Author name
  3. A one sentence blurb (about tweet length)
  4. The Amazon link to the book

All very simple and straightforward. Remember, PLEASE do not post links to erotica, political, or religious titles.

Authors, we hope you will make use of these new features, and readers – we hope you will enjoy them.
