Goodreads giveaways have been free, but will cost you starting in January 2018! Set up your giveaways before the price increase.

Setup takes only a few minutes and helps with discoverability of your book. You pay for the cost of the books, as well as the shipping cost.

I’ve created a 5-minute video to show you how easy it is. While you’re there, please do me a quick favor and subscribe to my YouTube channel.


The Goodreads giveaway price will be $59 in January, and $119 beyond that. The premium price will be $599. Yikes!

Benefits of a Goodreads giveaway for your book:

  • When readers enter to win, your book is automatically added to their “want to read” bookshelf. This helps their friends discover your book.

  • You control the countries that are eligible,  so you know roughly how much your shipping costs will be.

  • You select the number of copies that are up for grabs.

  • You control the time frame of your giveaway.

  • You can promote your giveaway on social media and to your email newsletter list.

  • When you ship your book, include a brief letter encouraging the winners to leave an honest review on Goodreads.

  • Goodreads giveaways are free until January 2018.

  • Who knows? You might gain a loyal fan for life.


Let me know if you have any questions. I hope the video helps:-)
