A subscriber or reader magnet is where you choose an ebook or sample to give readers in exchange for them joining your newsletter list. Readers have a no-risk chance to learn about you as an author and you gain the opportunity to sell them future books. You can upload your magnet on the My Magnets tab on your account page and readers will directly download the book from our site. You can share the URL of your book with readers. You can also make it public on our Book Cave Direct site, where readers can browse subscriber magnets.
Our retailer deals promotions are completely separate. On the retailer program, we send your retailer links to our subscribers and they download from the individual retailers.
A magnet can be any size or type of book while books for our retailer deals program are reviewed and accepted by editors on an individual basis.
To put your magnet in free group promotions, subscribe to our Author Happenings newsletter on the preferences tab on your account page. In addition, you should join our Facebook Book Cave Direct Author Group Promotion Page and like the pinned post. Currently, hosting your magnet with Book Cave Direct is free.
If you don't yet have an author account with us, follow this link and sign up. You need an author account to upload a magnet OR to submit a book for our retailer promotions. You will not receive our retailer daily deals unless you opt for them.
