GOODREADS GIVEAWAY CHANGES
Like many authors and publishers, I have used Goodreads giveaways for years to help with discovery, create buzz, and seek honest reviews for newly released books.
I have been a big fan of the Goodreads giveaway, having written a few articles about it on my blog.
I’m still a fan, but there are some important changes coming January 9, 2018:
- All KDP authors/publishers will be able to offer eBook giveaways. Previously, this was only open to traditional publishers.
- It will cost a minimum of $119 to run a Goodreads giveaway. That’s in addition to the cost of purchasing and sending physical copies (if you choose to run a contest for print books). Until now, there has been no fee to run a Goodreads giveaway.
- Entrants will have the book automatically added to their Want-to-Read lists (which friends potentially see through their update feeds).
