1) Details of the Crime & Publishment event that I'm attending this week: http://www.crimeandpublishment.co.uk/

The ALLi Author Fringe is next Saturday!

Find out more about the event on Saturday 18th March: http://selfpublishingadvice.org/lbf-indie-author-fringe-2017-speakers/

2) My InstaFreebie Giveaway event - update.

My Giveaway page: https://freebie-books.com/

The leaderboard: https://freebie-books.com/leaderboard/

Promo images that I have made available to participants: https://freebie-books.com/giveaway-promotional-images/

I am considering offering a paid-for Instafreebie service via a Wordpress multisite - users would get a cloned version of my Giveaway, done-for-you Google Forms and built-in training videos.

The Giveaway pages would be re-usable.

This is what the template would look like: https://freebie-books.com/template/

They'd get a leaderboard and promos page too.

Any thoughts on this? What would that service be worth to you?
