Over the last month, we’ve been working hard with a select number of publishers and authors to bring you our first ever round of giveaways. We’re thrilled with the outcome and the initial response!

Based on feedback from authors, publishers, and readers, we had a few goals that we really wanted to deliver on for this first round:

  • The ability for hosts to offer multiple formats within one giveaway

  • Having a selection of prizes that were available internationally

  • Developing a smarter way for publishers and authors to find their audience 

We’re happy to report that we’ve managed to make all of these features a reality! 

Hosts are able to offer print, digital, and audio prizes for the same title within one giveaway at no extra cost, improving international availability and flexibility. 🥳

Then users can filter using all of the standard StoryGraph filters, as well as by format and location, to see prizes that are available to them:

And finally, it wouldn’t be a new StoryGraph feature without some machine learning magic! 🤓

Rob has been hard at work developing the ‘For You’ section of the Giveaways page, where you’ll see books that closely match your reading preferences:

So no matter if you’re an indie author or a larger publisher, if your book matches a reader’s preferences, it will be discovered! 

Check out our brand new beta Giveaways section to see if anything catches your eye — and good luck! 🍀
