How to Promote Your Books with Goodreads’ Author Program?

10 Dec



Learn more about how to promote your books with special tools on Goodreads. Each slideshow demonstrates a different aspect of the Goodreads Author Program.

Get the word out about your book! Here are some of the promotional tools available on Goodreads:

Author Profile, Author Dashboard, and Widgets
All members of Goodreads have regular reader profiles where they can review books, add friends, and post information about themselves. When an author signs up for Goodreads, he or she begins with this basic user profile.

For any book listed in the Goodreads catalog, you can click on the author’s name to find the author profile. This page lists all of the author’s published work, whether he or she is a member of Goodreads or not. When an author joins the Author Program his or her user profile will be merged with the author profile. Becoming a Goodreads Author carries special privileges, such as the ability to

  • edit profile information,
  • add book cover images,
  • write a blog,
  • list quotes that you like
  • upload your videos,
  • promote events, book launches, book signings,
  • and start featured author groups.
After you have signed up for the Author Program, your log-in process does not change: You will still use the same username and password, but now your user profile will point to your author profile. You will also have access to a special Author Dashboard that contains useful links and statistics about your books.


If you would like to get more support in all things publishing, have your book intensively promoted and learn how to navigate social media sites: We offer all this and more for only $159 for three months! Learn more about this individual book marketing help:
