I've been accumulating links and resources for indie/self-published authors to promote their books. I have NOT had any experience with these sites, but on the many email loops I belong to for writers, I've collected their recommendations. I've broken down these links in categories for PAID PROMO, BARGAIN EBOOKS, and free listings for FREE Ebooks. Most of the links should take you to the actual submission pages.
After I post this, I will keep it on a tab on my YA blog and update it when I have new links.
If you have promo to recommend that you've tried and liked, please submit your suggestion in a comment. Thanks.

I've worked with Croco Designs for years. I find them fast, affordable, and easy to pay on PayPal. Love Frauke! They do lots of covers for publishers - of all genres. Don't let the sexy website header dissuade you if you're a crime fiction author. Croco Designs does it all.
