Read Tuesday, 2014

Posted on



It’s a Black Friday type of sales event, but just for books.

In 2014, Read Tuesday will fall on Tuesday, December 9.

It will be a great opportunity to buy and gift books at amazing sales prices.

It will also be a great marketing opportunity for authors and publishers.

The Read Tuesday website will feature the following deals on Tuesday, December 9, 2014:

  • Kindle Countdown Deals (in the US and in the UK).
  • Kindle freebies.
  • Smashwords discount codes (40% minimum).
  • Amazon MatchBook offers with FREE Kindle offers. Give the print edition as a gift, keep the free Kindle e-book for yourself. (With the MatchBook offers, the Kindle edition will only be free if the print edition is purchased from Amazon first.)
  • New releases available for preorder.
  • Free supplemental material for children’s, tween, and teen books, with the spirit of promoting literacy and improving reading fluency and comprehension.

    Very cool event. Thanks for spreading the word, Jo.
    I have a question, maybe you and others can provide feedback… [I don’t have time for promoting my novel, so i haven’t looked into any of these sales.]
    One writer tells me that when she puts books on a sale, they are much more likely to be returned and/or get a bad review. Do you find that is true?

      I haven’t had a book returned yet Teagan – touch wood! Amazon’s three day return policy gets right up my nostril though – a lot of books can easily be read in a day. This event last year was brilliant. I put my shorts on free and had lots of downloads, as well as sales on the discounted ones. I know that a lot authors have mentioned that they get some rotten reviews after free events – I actually had a one star clobber for my Fly Birdie just after a free promo – but I reckon that the good very far outweighs the bad.
