    I found this list somewhere else, but thought it'd be useful here.

    ATTENTION this list could have changed always look over a list to make sure the sites and pages are still taking free books. ALSO it has been found that if you post too much of facebook that you can be banned from posting for fifteen days. Be ware of this fact and post according.

    A post from someone that used the list in May 2013
    I just went down the (almost) entire list for Facebook pages but before I was finished I was kicked off and told I was spamming and am now banned from posting for 15 days. I would advise authors to maybe limit their promo listings to maybe 5 or 10 a day.

    So, most of these want you to have a free amazon price through KDP but the only way to do that is to be select and do a promotion and that is only for a short time. Correct or did I miss something?

    No, that would be correct. I linked my book with a little blurb about the promotion just as it started (just before is probably better), and then updated the pages as the promotion progressed. I also made sure I thanked them all when the promotion was finished. Of course, I included a link to the book each time I posted ;)

    Hi, Michael,

    Excellent post!

    If I may, let me suggest adding to it the promotions available from KindleBoards.com, which at 64,000 members and 1.9M posts is the web's largest independent Kindle user forum.

    We recently launched e-book promotions from our Facebook/blog/Twitter presence.

    Here are the promotions available, with the links to their sign-up page. (You can also find these links at the bottom of any http://KindleBoards.com page.)

    Free Book promo (no charge)
    http://kindleboards.com/free-book-promo
    Book must have minimum 3 reviews, minimum 100 pages, minimum 4-star rating. No erotica.

    Bargain Book promo
    http://kindleboards.com/bargain-book-promo
    Book must be priced at 99 cents, or be on sale from its regular price. No erotica.

    Spotlight book promo
    http://kindleboards.com/blog-ads
    No erotica.

    Thanks so much for considering adding these to your informative blog post!

    -Harvey

    Glad you like them.

    I have found a new site as well, and it aggregates a number of these sites listed on their "submission tools" page. Here's the link:

    http://authormarketingclub.com/members/submit-your-book/

    I've been doing a promotion involving six separate books, pushing two a week on Thursdays and Fridays, only one each day. I'm starting to see some results using this tool.
