I would like to offer the download of my book to Operation Book drop, a program that offers free downloads for active duty soldiers. However, the way the program is set up, the author/owner must provide a coupon code to the program. I have searched for days and can,t find a way to do that on the knowledge based info or in the forum.

Hi Jeff, thanks for your note. Author driven coupon codes is a common request we get, and its something we'll certainly consider for the future. Thanks for using Lulu!

Can they not just put a link to your free download on Lulu?

It is in fact a Smashword's set up so why not put your ebook there?

Yes, I have been asking this of everyone in the e-pub field.

 

We need to promote our books and would normally do this by sending out review copies, but we cannot do this with ebooks.  I would like to send out, say 30 review copies free to the reviewers (I don't mind paying €1:00 a copy).  

Let me send the reviewer a coupon code, so they get a free copy, and delete €1 from my account.  This would benefit both ourselves and Lulu.  We can never get media converage (and therefore greater sales) without free review copies going out.

 

 

Thanks,

Ralph
