3. Retail Spotlight. Running a deal on a retail site? Highlight a weekly deal, or newsworthy hook, on NetGalley for members to purchase the book. Great option once the title is Archived in NetGalley, OR a great way to drive Pre-Orders!

2023 Price:
Category Spotlights start at $150 USD per title, per week, per category. Highest traffic goes to these 4 categories: Romance, YA, Mystery & Thrillers, Sci Fi & Fantasy—and those bookings are highly competitive! Price is slightly higher ($165 USD) for top 4 categories. Reserve via this form.

NetGalley reserves the right to select Category Spotlight titles, and spots are not guaranteed. We will make every effort to accommodate your preferences.

If your title is featured in a Category Spotlight placement, you’ll see this designation on the Title Details page in your publisher account:Category_Spotlight.jpg
