Authors and publishers, get a jump on 2021 holiday season marketing with this gift guide #marketing

With the holiday season less than two weeks away, now is the perfect time to feature one or more of your books in our 7th annual Holiday Gift Guide. This holiday season is sure to be successful for many authors and we want to help you reach readers. Our holiday gift guide is very popular with people looking for great gift ideas. We market it heavily throughout the season.

You may have heard of the delay in the printing of print books (both hardcover and paperback) due to supply issues. We’d like to remind you that if you have your book in audiobook, this is a great time to offer your audiobooks as holiday gifts. Audible and Chirp offer a gifting option for audiobooks, so it’s never been easier to gift audiobooks. Also, you can gift e-books through most e-tailers.

The format is similar to our author events page. We're theming our Holiday Gift Guide posts by genre and each link will be on our main Holiday Gift Guide Landing page. This has proven to be successful for buyers to go directly to a genre from their shopping list. To view this year’s Holiday Gift Guide page, please click here:

These are the themes for this year:


Contemporary Romance

Fantasy/Science Fiction Romance

Paranormal Romance

Historical Romance

Western Romance

Sweet Romance

Steamy/Erotic Romance

FantasyScience Fiction

Historical Fiction

Women's Fiction



Cozy Mystery/Cozy Crime


Fiction/Literary Fiction

Holiday Fiction/Romance

Children's Books

Young Adult

Middle Grade


Self-Help/New Age


If you’re unsure which guide your book falls into, please send us an email and we’ll help you determine which guide will be the best for your book.

Each spot is $15 USD and you will receive a customized graphic to put up on your website and share on social media. It looks like this:

The graphic is an $11 value so your holiday gift guide spot is only $4.

If you want your book in multiple guides, the price is $15 per book in each guide. To see what each spot’s design will look like and to see your choice of graphic, please click here. You'll need to scroll down to the bottom of the page. If you want to have all three graphics created for your book, the price for the spot is $25 USD.

Each themed guide will release sometime in November with all of the guides being live before Black Friday.

The Holiday Gift Guide launches 11/1 and runs through 12/31.

To sign-up, please go to our contact page and put "Holiday Gift Guide" in the subject line. In the message, please include the following:

Author Name

Paypal Email so I can invoice you

How many spots you'd like

Titles and which themed guide you'd like them to be in (one spot per guide)

Which graphic style you want created (poinsettia, tree, dreidel)

There is no deadline to sign up as we decided to add any book throughout the holiday season. But it would be smart to have your book featured in the guide before the holiday season gets too far along and certainly before Black Friday.

Any questions, feel free to ask.

Let's make this holiday season a grand success!
