Preliminary Read Tuesday Catalog



Read Tuesday is a Black Friday type of event just for book lovers on December 9, 2014.

The preliminary Read Tuesday catalog is now up:

Presently, this only shows Kindle Countdown Deals, temporary Kindle price reductions, and Kindle freebies.

Some of the offers start early, so you may actually be able to buy some of the books already. Note the begin and end dates for each offer.

Smashwords discount codes, giveaways, MatchBook offers, and other deals haven’t been posted yet. These catalogs will post later today or tomorrow, most likely.

The preliminary catalog needs a little work (formatting and organization, for example). Expect to see a few subtle improvements later tonight.

Authors, please check your listings. (If you didn’t submit a Kindle promotion, then you won’t find your book on this catalog; you’ll have to wait for the catalog you submitted to.) If you find any problems, please let me know.

Do you have a UK offer?

If your book is listed in the preliminary catalog and you also have a UK offer, please give me the reg. and sale prices for your UK offer (and the ASIN of your book), and I’ll add this to the catalog when I get a chance.

Authors: No, it’s not yet too late to sign up. Participation is free. See below for details.


You can still sign up, but time is running out.

There are many ways to participate. Almost all authors should be able to find at least one way to sign up.

Choose one of the Google Docs forms below, complete the form, and you’re signed up. Easy peasy.

You can still sign up (this post was written on December 2), but time is running out.

Submission is easy and should go smoothly—you just fill out a Google Docs form. However, if you encounter any issues, have questions, receive an error message, or see a symptom that might suggest that your information didn’t save, please use the Contact Us form on the Read Tuesday website.

You can submit more than one book. You can sign up with more than one method.

Know fellow authors? Please tell a friend. But hurry: Time is running out!

  1. Hi Chris, I noticed my first book, Skylar Robbins: The Mystery of Shadow Hills, is actually listed twice, probably because I updated the synopsis. But my new book which releases Read Tuesday, Skylar Robbins: The Mystery of the Hidden Jewels, is not showing up at all. It was added more recently–hopefully I didn’t do something incorrectly. Can you please check on it when you have a chance? Thanks so much,Carrie Cross

  2. Hi Chris,

    I submitted 2 countdown deals and only one is posted. The second is for “A Place Within Her”. Can you check on it or should I resubmit? Let me know. Thanks! Deb (D.P. McHenry) Author of Saint Nicholas’s Girls, Never In My Life and A Place Within Her

  3. Hi, Chris. I thought I did sign up, but I don’t see my Amazon Freebie ( “This Changes Everything,” Vol i,”The Spanners Series” here, which makes me wonder if the Smashwords discount coupon and Volume II won’t appear, either. Please advise Sally Ember, Ed.D.
