Tell me more about the Category Spotlights.

Drive requests, wishes, or sales.

Be the first to catch the eye of readers, before they browse! Reserve a week-long spotlight on a NetGalley.com category page—to drive the action you want most. Nominations accepted for Category Spotlights up to 2 weeks before run date.

Three types of Category Spotlights:

1. Request/Read Now Spotlight. Highlight a title in a Category to maximize impressions, requests and downloads from NetGalley members.



2. Wish Spotlight. Want to start buzz without being flooded with requests? Wishing is perfect for high-profile books or giveaways. Drive anticipation by collecting Wishes (and granting a limited number) for a Private title. (Read more about Wish Granting here.)


3. Deal / Pre-Order 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!




Category Spotlights are $75 per title, per week, per category. Bulk discount: 5 for the price of 4. All five must be submitted at the same time. Reserve via this form.

Category Spotlight nominations are selected weekly. 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:
