Help with promoting your e-book, KDP FREE Promos

I wish I had read how to promote my e-book BEFORE I published it!  First, if you use KDP you have 5 FREE days to promote your book.  Sounds great?  Well WAIT!  First you need to tell people about your book, then get them to download it!
Choose your 5 days wisely.  I wish I had!
AT LEAST two weeks prior to your FREE days, e-mail sites announcing it.  This can take a lot of time.  Here are some links to sites which can help you.
