Here's what a few of our clients had to say abour our services:

“During May you featured my novel The Darwin Manuscript on your Website and I write to tell you that it had an amazing impact on both downloads and sales. Free downloads: An increase of 10 times normal. Paid sales: An increase of 12 times normal and still growing! Thank you very much for your efforts and for publishing details of my Kindle free days on your excellent Website. I will undoubtedly use you again on all future promos of my novels. Kind regards” – Author Brian Hunt

 

Storyfinds is a wonderful site and I found it invaluable at getting readers interested in my novel Refuge." Nick Osborne, author and producer of "Remember Me"

 

I'm very impressed, Renee, by the significant help your site provides authors. Thank you for getting in touch and offering me this effective way to expand my readership. My novel Wyvern really benefited from StoryFinds' promo - and over 6,000 copies found readers! My giveaways usually reach only a couple hundred.  I'm truly excited to have StoryFinds as a capable ally of my literary career! With joy - and gratitude – author A. A. Attanasio, for his book http://storyfinds.com/book/793/wyvern
