    Question Paid Promotions - Do They Work?

    I'm interested in trying a few paid promotions for the first book in my trilogy. Has anyone found cost-effective sites which have produced results?

    Thanks in anticipation.

    Really, Mutt? YOU'VE tried PAID promotion? That strikes me as very un-Mutt of you.

    It was several years ago, before I knew better.

    What sites have you been looking at? How do they promote your book? What amount do you consider "cost effective"?

    Yes, Stan. I was talking about paid ads or promotions such as BookBub, Fussy Librarian etc. I've dabbled with some of the cheap ones and they produced a few sales but not many. I've been reluctant to fork out $300 on BookBub although a lot of people seem to generate enough sales to cover the cost.
