Authors: Tell Readers About Your Book

Before you submit your book via this form, please do a search on our site to check and see if you have already submitted your book. We are starting to get duplicates and that just clogs things up. We only allow a book to be posted once on the site, other than listing it in our free days category.

All book posts now require an author interview be submitted to our site. Your submission will be deleted if you do not fill one out or already have one. You can tell us one has been submitted, but it if it is not your post will not be published. This is so readers can find out more about you as an author.

This page is NOT for posting Bargain Promotions, Kindle Countdown deals or Free Books. Please go to this page to find the correct form.

Your book posting will take up to 28 days to go live on our site due to the volume of submissions.

Use this form for general book submissions, we do have some special book submission forms, if you write one of the following genres please use those forms instead:
Memoir
Cookbook and Food Books
Cats, Dogs and other Pet Book Authors
Craft Books and Tutorials

Please check your information before you hit submit!

To keep this a free service we need your cooperation in giving us correct information without us having to make corrections. You are not able to edit your information once it is submitted. Please be considerate and take an extra minute to re-read your entry. Thank you for helping us keep this service available.

You can also post your book in our Book Lovers community.

  • This will be the name that will appear in the book post title as the author. If you use a pen name be sure to use the correct author name here.

  • Email will not be displayed or shared. This must be the author's email address. VA or submission services must NOT use their email address here. Posts that do not comply will be deleted without notice.

  • Do not include links or html in this section, other than page breaks and line breaks. You do not need to include those. Do not paste directly from a Word document or your Amazon page, please copy to a plain text editor first and paste it from there. Poorly formatted descriptions or ones that contain links may be deleted without notice and not posted to our site.

    All book submissions now require you to have an interview, if you have multiple authors for a box set or anthology, please create an author interview for each author. Pen names are included. Books submitted without an interview will be deleted.




    NO LINKS EXCEPT TO YOUR INTERVIEW HERE ON BOOKGOODIES ARE ALLOWED. If you post a link to your own website, your book or to a search on our site your post will be deleted.

    If you are submitting on behalf of an author they MUST have or fill out an author interview or the post will be deleted.

  • This may not be left blank and should be more than a sentence. Short answers or "..." will cause your post to be deleted.

  • If your book is nonfiction please type "nonfiction" in this box. Otherwise this may not be left blank and should be more than a sentence. Short answers or "..." will cause your post to be deleted.

  • Not required but it helps people decide to click over to your book page. Books submitted with good excerpts will be considered for inclusion in special promotions.

    Do not copy and paste directly from Word. Paste to a plain text document first to be sure to remove extra formatting. No html is allowed here other than line breaks or paragraph breaks. If your excerpt formatting is bad, we will not post your book.

  • YouTube links work best. Must be direct link to video, not to a page that has a video on it. This will play directly in the post. This is not a place for the link to your book on your bookseller page

  • *Name your image with the name of your book - without spaces between the words.* DO NOT NAME YOUR COVER WITH COVER.jpg OR OTHER GENERIC NAMES - your cover WILL get overwritten by others named the same. Images with generic names will overwrite existing book covers.

    Please send an image no larger that 400 pixels wide. Large images will cause the form to fail.

  • If your category isn't listed just use the closest category, i.e. Fiction, Non-Fiction, Poetry etc

  • If you submit more than 10 tags the rest will be deleted.
  • In all link fields below we need direct links to the sites - NO SHORTCODES OR LINK SHORTENERS OR REDIRECTS
