Book Pre-Order Incentives

Pre-orders are great. It’s like your birthday every release day when a book magically arrives on your doorstep. And what’s better than a pre-order WITH SWAG?! I’ve gathered as many as I can find here on this page that you can bookmark (I promise that URL won’t change!) so you don’t miss out on awesome swag and other bookish goodies!

If there is a pre-order incentive going on for a book and it’s NOT listed, let me know!

What is a Library Option?

Some incentives allow you to submit proof of requesting the book at your local library as a way to get the incentive swag rather than buying the book. If a book has this option, you will see a YES next to that text along with what swag is available for this option. Please make sure to check out the Details here link for additional information.

Are these incentives ONLY available to United States residents only?

NOPE! Each incentive is dependent on the author/publisher hosting it but I include any that have been submitted to the site on this page! Some incentives don’t list country restrictions so you will see “(Unknown)” listed under that incentive. If you know what the limits are for a particular incentive please let me know and I’ll fix the entry!

What genres/age groups do you include on this page?

All genres and all age groups! If it’s a book and has either a pre-order incentive or giveaway, I’m happy to add it!

Does the incentive have to be hosted by a publisher?

Absolutely NOT! If you’re an author who is hosting your own pre-order incentive (regardless of whether you’re traditionally published or indie), I’m happy to add it here! You can email me or submit it through the form at the bottom of the page.
