The program just started so that feature may no be available yet, and if you haven't sold your soul, er, I mean if you haven't signed up for the Select program, you may not see it at all.

Once your book is in KDP Select, click the box next to the title of your book and then click on the "actions" button at the top. When it drops down, there's a link to the page for managing promotions at the bottom.

I can't click on it since I don't have anything active in KDP Select yet, but I still see it listed.

Aso, if you just click on the title of the enrolled book, it brings you to the 'details' page and up top is an orange box,. The right link, I believe it is Promotions manager, click on that and set it up.

It'll ask the name of promotion, I put my title, although I couldn't figure out what else it's supposedot be/

Then select your dates.

I signed up for KDP. So, when I do the promotion, it makes it free for 5 days? Is it free just to KDP or all Kindle owners? Please answer. Thanks.

I believe that for those five days, it will be free to all Amazon users.

I thought it should be author name and not title of book name - but if title of book name worked for you - who knows? Anyone??

I just assumed it was for something like "Spring Ad campaign with Joe"

Or "Summer Bargain for 2nd Book"

Thanks JT. That makes sense. "First" worked for me.
