Frequently Asked Questions

Who can give away Kindle books?
Currently, publishers and self-published authors who use Kindle Direct Publishing can run Kindle book giveaways for books they publish (authors will need to connect to their KDP accounts).
How are print books delivered to winners?
At the end of the entry period, Goodreads will randomly select your winners and send you their addresses. You’re responsible for sending copies to winners within two weeks (please take printing and shipping costs into consideration when running a print book giveaway).
Can I run a Kindle book giveaway before the book is published?
Yes. Just make sure you’ve uploaded the book (either an ARC or final copy) to the Kindle Store and that the book exists on Goodreads before you create a giveaway for a Kindle book.
