Enroll Your Books in the 12th Annual Read an Ebook Week  Sale!

March 7, 2021 - March 13, 2021

Welcome to the enrollment page for the 12th annual Read an Ebook Week sale! For these seven days only, thousands of Smashwords authors and publishers will offer readers exclusive discounts on their ebooks.

To enroll your books in the promotion, select from one of four promotion levels below: 25% off; 50% off; 75% off, or FREE.

If you manage multiple books, you can use the bulk enrollment option you'll find in the pull-down menus directly underneath each of the enrollment options.

Once a book is enrolled, the discount will automatically apply to the customer's shopping cart at checkout. No need for customers to remember to enter coupon codes!

Benefits of Participation

Readers love Read an Ebook Week because it's an opportunity to purchase the latest low-cost ebooks from long-time favorite indie authors and future favorites.

Authors and publishers enrolled in the promotion will receive:

  1. Placement in a special Smashwords home page catalog from March 7 through March 13
  2. Email promotion to over one million customers of the Smashwords Store at the start of the sale (so be sure to enroll before the sale starts!)
  3. Notation on your book page that your book is participating in the sale
  4. Special visibility in home page searches
