Kirkus Book Sampling


With our Kirkus Book Sampling service, you can send the right message to readers: that your book deserves to be noticed.

You’re not just getting a book ad. You’re also acquiring a promotional tool that directly engages your target readership by giving them the chance to get FREE digital BookStub™ cards. Create some marketing fanfare for your book with these inclusions:

  • Custom-Designed Banner Ad. The ad will be placed on’s home page, as well as selected website pages such as the Kirkus Stars & Recommendations page, the Critics' Takes on Bestsellers page, and on the Interviews, Profiles, and Blogs landing pages, among others.
  • Two-Week Promotional Contest: Visitors who click on your ad will be redirected to the seeding campaign page.
  • BookStub™ Cards. The digital BookStub™ cards offer a link to a one-time downloadable free copy of your e-book. This will be sent to participants of the campaign.
