Enroll Your Books in the July Summer/Winter Sale!

July 1, 2020 - July 31, 2020

Welcome to the enrollment page for our 12th annual July 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. Readers are loading their e-reading devices for summer beach reading, vacations, and in the age of COVID-19 - staycations.   South of the equator, our customers are now in the middle of winter. They're ready to curl up in front of the fireplace and enjoy a great read too!

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, the special discount is automatically applied at checkout.  No coupons necessary!

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.

Your enrollment doesn't affect list prices at Smashwords retailers.  This is a Smashwords-exclusive sale.
