Enroll Your Books in the 10th Annual Smashwords
2018 Summer/Winter Sale!

July 1, 2018 - July 31, 2018

Welcome to the enrollment page for the 10th annual Smashwords Summer/Winter sale!  For the entire month of July, thousands of Smashwords authors and publishers will offer readers exclusive discounts on their ebooks.

Why do we call it "Summer/Winter"?   Here in the Northern hemisphere, it's mid-summer where readers are ready to load up their e-reading devices for summer beach reading and vacations.  But what about our good friends South of the equator, who are now in the middle of winter? They deserve to curl up in front of the fireplace and enjoy a good read too! That's the story behind our Summer/Winter promotion, and as a Smashwords author or publisher, this is a great opportunity to reach new readers!

To enroll your books in the promotion, select from one of four promotion levels below: 25% off; 50% off; 75% off, or FREE. Once you enroll, customers will obtain your books using one of the special coupon codes below, which they'll enter at checkout to receive the discount.

Benefits of Participation

Smashwords authors and publishers enrolled in the promotion will receive:

  1. Placement in a special Smashwords home page catalog for the entire month of July

  2. The sale will be promoted to over one million customers of the Smashwords Store (so be sure to enroll before July 1!)

  3. Notation on your book page that the book is participating in the sale.
  4. This is a collaborative sale.  The more authors and publishers participate, the more it amplifies results for all participants. 

  5. Readers love Smashwords sales because it's a great opportunity to stuff their shopping devices chock full with deep-discounted ebooks from both new authors they haven't tried yet as well as long-time favorites.  Have fun!
