Store-specific featuring, promotion, & tools

Promote your book under one roof.

Besides our Sales Events tool, we can help you maximize your book's reach with the help of our Featuring tool. What makes these two different is that while Sales Events require price changes, Featuring opportunities do not, you can submit your books with their full prices.

If you want to learn more about our Sales Events tool, please check out this article.

Please note that we are only able to recommend books for special features available in the respective stores through PublishDrive.

Featuring on Apple Books (iBooks)

Apple Books lets us recommend books to their editorial team for featuring.

We can send them upcoming releases seasonally (Winter's Most Anticipated, Spring's Most Anticipated, Summer's Most Anticipated, Fall's Most Anticipated), so if you have one coming up, check our Featuring so you can submit your exciting upcoming title.

To be considered for inclusion, your book needs to meet Apple Books' criteria:

- Titles must be available on store for pre-order to be included (no cover needed).
- Unless it is something truly, truly exceptional, the price must be $16.99 or less.
- Accepted Apple Books categories:
Biographies & Memoirs
Business & Personal Finance
Cookbooks, Food & Wine
Fiction & Literature
Health, Mind & Body
Mysteries & Thrillers
Religion & Spirituality
Sci-Fi & Fantasy
Science & Nature
Young Adult

- Only English-language titles in ebook format can be accepted for this promotional opportunity.

They are also looking for perma-free titles to promote. If you have one, make sure to submit it to their Perma-free titles promotional opportunity using our Featuring tab. This promotional opportunity does not have a deadline, as we send them a new list each month.

Featuring on Kobo

Kobo lets us recommend new and upcoming releases written in Spanish and French.

Please submit your upcoming releases before the 15th of each month to be included in next month's promotion.

For example: if you have a Spanish-language title that is expected to be released on June 13th, and it is available on Kobo for pre-order, you need to submit it before May 15th so we can send it to Kobo in time.

Featuring on Dreame

Every two weeks, we can recommend five romance books for promotion. To ensure that your book is included in the next batch of books that we send in, please submit your books before the 11th and the 26th of each month.

Featuring in marketing emails, newsletters, and promotional deals

Bibliotheca, 24symbols, Hoopla and OverDrive let us recommend books according to their marketing calendar. Every month they have special topics we can recommend related books in. To hear about these marketing opportunities, please click on the Promotions option on the Home page.

Promote with Written Word Media

Our exclusive partnership with book promotion site Written Word Media gives you four different book promotion options to run. Maximize your reach by promoting to WWM’s network of hundred-thousands of readers:

  • Freebooksy: if you have titles that are permanently free or free for a limited time, this deal is for you. 
  • Bargain Booksy: if you have titles priced at $0.99 - $4.99, this is for you. 
  • NewInBooks: if you have titles (released in the past 60 days or in an upcoming month) in Mystery/Thriller, Romance, Literary Fiction, Science Fiction, Fantasy, or Biography & Memoir genres, this is for you. 
  • Red Feather Romance is the #1 site for romance books. If you have romance titles (new and older releases are welcome), this is for you.

See here for more details.

Price promotion tool

Although this tool does not fall under Featuring, it is good to know about it, especially if you are planning on submitting your book to any of the above mentioned Written Word Media newsletters. If the price of your book is not free or $4.99 and below, you can still submit it to Freebooky and Bargain Booksy, but you will need to schedule a price promotion for it.

We made it super easy for you to run price promotion campaigns (a strong sales tactic) for your books. You can set one up wherever your title is published already via PublishDrive. If you have more than one promo, you can group them into campaigns for easier viewing and management. Check here to see a more detailed guide on how to set one up.

If you are running a BookBub campaign, please let us know up to 5 days in advance, so we can ensure that your changes go through.


Please note that although we accept submissions that meet the stores' criteria, unfortunately, we can not guarantee their inclusion. If your book is featured in any of the promotional opportunities, we will notify you.
