It’s Black Friday and there are deals and more deals everywhere! I’m going to share just a few of the good ones that I’ve spotted for authors in our article. Do let me know if you see any others we should include.

Books GoSocial $75 discount

Books GoSocial are offering a $75 discount on any BooksGoSocial service this month. Including editorial reviews, Amazon and Facebook ads, cover services and any other service valued at $100 or more. This makes their editorial review service quite affordable and that is worth considering for new books. Use coupon code bf75 at the checkout page to get your discount

Women In Publishing Summit

This fantastic event is held in early March each year (1 - 7 March 2021) and the organisers are offering a whopping 66% discount that brings the price down to a tiny $67.

I love this summit, not least because I have spoken at the past two events. It’s a truly supportive environment full of knowledgeable people who will help you reach your publishing goals.

Visit Women in Publishing Summit 2021 to get your discount ticket.


Masterclass are offering a buy one give one free membership deal on their annual membership. This is not a cheap offering with an annual membership costing approximately $275 AUD per year. But the classes are amazing and taught by icons such as Margaret Atwood, Dan Brown and Judy Blume. If you have been hunting for the perfect Christmas present for someone that has it all, this may be the way to give yourself a little bonus.

40% Discount for Kindle Nation Daily

This isn’t so much a Black Friday special but it’s available til 3 December so it may as well be. Kindle Nation Daily are one of my favourites for free book promotions for new books with few reviews. Their free book highlighter service comes down to $18 US with this discount and that is good value. Use the code knd40 to get the discount.

A quick side note - none of these programs or links are affiliates for me. I don't receive any bonus from you taking up the offers apart from the pleasure of knowing I've helped you save some coin.

Where To Next

I hope you’ve enjoyed this small selection of Black Friday specials and that they are useful for you. There are so many more that its definitely worth looking at your favourite sites to see if they have something available.
