Sidebar Features: $20 Per Month
– Displayed on the sidebar
Once a book is featured, our editors add it to the sidebar of all pages (except Community & Profile pages) under its respective category. Books with 4.5 and 5 star reviews are added under Highly Recommended. Award winners are added under, you guessed it, Award Winners. Books that do not fall into a specific category are added under Other Titles, with a catchphrase. If a book falls under multiple categories, it will automatically go to the highest position possible. In some cases, it may show up in more than one place.
– Displayed on our “Featured” page
Our “Featured” page is located on the menu under “Bookshelf”.
– Sales and giveaways are promoted
Our “Sales and Giveaways” page is located on the menu under “Bookshelf.” Only sales of featured books are visible to the general public, although all sales and giveaways are visible to Premium Subscribers.
– Reviewer Dashboard
Featured Pitch Perfect Picks are the first thing reviewers see after their review requests when they log in to their Reviewer Dashboard.

The 5 most popular featured books in related categories show up at the bottom of every Book Page with the heading “You might also like…
Books on the sidebar are rotated randomly; a new book should appear in each category upon refresh, but, like rolling dice, sometimes the same book will show up twice in a row. Below you can see how many books are listed under each sidebar category. If the category your book falls into has 5 or less books in it, you are guaranteed a lot of exposure. If there are more than 20 books in that category, less people will see it. At this time we do not pro-rate our advertising fees, so it is behooves you to plan your features wisely.
