We recently started a promotion to help our publishing partners get their books get noticed through NetGalley, and it occurred to me that maybe a lot of our readers aren’t very familiar with who they are. This post is for you.
NetGalley is a website for people who read and recommend books. Publishers can invite contacts to view their print or digital galleys, and readers can request galleys they want to review.
Benefits for reviewers
Reviewers, bloggers, journalists, librarians, booksellers, educators, or media experts can use NetGalley for free to read and request titles before they are published. Plus, you can choose the books you want to read instead of having to wade through an unsolicited stack on your desk. You have the ease to upload the content to your ereading platform of choice.
Benefits for publishers
NetGalley links you to some very influential people as they deliver secure, digital galleys to professional readers. Plus with egalleys, you won’t have the cost of printing and mailing books to people that may or may not want your book. These readers request your book, meaning they are definitely showing an interest in your content.
Bookmasters is a proud partner of NetGalley. If you are a reviewer, come join the other 45,000 members already on NetGalley.com and check out Bookmasters’ titles. If you are a publisher, check out our special promotion running now through the end of February.
