As you may know, us authors receive promotional codes when we release audiobooks through ACX. These codes enable you, the listener, to claim free audiobooks.
Unfortunately, the system isn’t perfect and sometimes codes come up as available when they have been redeemed, and sometimes the other way around. Sometimes I give codes to readers and competition winners and they never claim them. Sometimes they do claim them but the system says that they are still available.
As you can tell, it’s a bit of a muddle.
I’m trying to ascertain if some of the codes for my audiobooks are available or not… and so I’m looking for help.
I have a stack of over one hundred and fifty promo codes, across various books and split between the UK and the US. There’s a chance they may be available, there’s a chance they may not.
The joy of these codes is that we authors get paid when the codes are redeemed, even though these codes are free for us to apply for and provide the listener with a free book (Amazon aren’t all bad!). So, having over 150 codes that may or may not be available is like having money sat on the table and these codes will one day expire.
So, that’s why I’m turning to you. I’m looking for people who are willing to try codes, possibly multiple codes, in order for me to know if the codes are actually available or not. If you find a code that is available… you get the audiobook!
All you need to do is fill in the form below and tick the boxes of any audiobooks you don’t have but would like to have. Select as many as you like! I’ll then send you codes that my system says are available, but there’s a chance they might not be. If you try a code and it doesn’t work, just let me know and I’ll send you the next code in the stack. Eventually, you’ll either get the audiobook… or I’ll run out of codes to give you!
At the end of the day, my ACX account will look a lot neater, a lot of you wil hopefully have audiobooks, and you’ll all have my gratitude.
