Curious as to how you guys get so many ARC’s.Curious as to how you guys get so many ARC’s. Hollie #questionnaire
I get mine on NetGalley and Goodreads giveaways!
I get very few through Goodreads
I enter every giveaway I find, follow the authors, and use Netgalley/Edelweiss.
@Stacey it’s like Netgalley.
Is there a link to edelweiss?
How do you get them from Edelweiss? I’ve gotten rejected for anything I’ve asked for from them.
It’s a long process and you have to work hard to get them. It’s a total privilege!
This too. Definitely doesn’t just happen!
This! I can’t figure Edelweiss out ??♀️
@Kathy you know I’m hopeless there ?
@Amy that website is so cumbersome.
@Amy I thought it was just me lol
@Kathy no definitely not!
Not user friendly at all!
I have only won one on Goodreads. I have gotten a couple through the publisher, but nothing like you guys are getting. So I am just looking for new avenues to try.
It is a long process of building up reviews on Goodreads/blog/bookstagram.
I am working on doing more reviews. I am also looking into starting a blog.
Just wanted to pop in and say we don’t often get physical copies.
I do not currently have one, but will definitely look into it. Thanks!
Netgalley, Goodreads, Publishers newsletters, Facebook, Twitter, Insta et al. BookishFirst have regular raffles – the books can be a bit of a mixed bag, but I haven’t lost many raffles I’ve entered. Sometimes authors or publishers will come to you themselves. But, you have to put in the work. The better your feedback on NG, the higher your odds. Writing an articulate first look on BookishFirst does too. Having a set place where you regularly post reviews, be it your own blog, or on Goodreads or wherever, shows them you just might be worth the risk they’re taking. ARCs are marketing, after all.
Is it possible to tag me too? Thanks!
@Chantal I just tagged Hollie so it should bump it up but if you don’t see it I will!
I received the physical ARC and I’ve met this author at 2 conferences
Netgalley… I’ve gotten over 300 ARCs from them since I’ve started using it
You have to be on autoapproval for some publishers now 😀
??♀️ I don’t know how it really works honestly I just request what I want and most of the time I get approved
I hope you’re reviewing those 300 ?
@Jamie yes I do
E reader arcs?
For me it started with being one of the author’s earliest fans and most active supporters. Still get several from author friends as well. Bit yeah, also NetGalley.
I enter all the time and never have won ???
I am on one author’s arc team. I have had the opportunity to apply for other teams but I wasn’t sure I could make the commitment.
I use NetGalley and have been very fortunate to receive most of the books I have requested but I am compulsive about getting my arcs read and reviewed before release date. I have over 500 reviews and an abundance of friends on goodreads so I beleive that is why I have been able to get so many arcs.
I have entered hundreds and hundreds of goodreads contests but I have never won from goodreads 🙁
Do art books ever get offered?
I belong to a few authors’ street teams, ARCs are usually a part of that. I belong to a few online book clubs and writing groups, sometimes authors will ask for people to contact them or their assistant if they’re interested in reviewing ARCs.
Thank you so much for all of the feedback!!
@Ruth as giveaways yes
@Amy that’s my jam…
Netgalley and goodreads
@Ruth goodreads has a bunch and then follow your favorite authors, most do giveaways. Also follow bloggers and bookstagram, tons of giveaways!!
many ways to get them, Good reads, the Authors , the Press that prints the books
I am on a review team for a number of authors plus NetGalley.
Netgalley is great for ebooks.
I have a blog and review books on it. I receive requests from authors all the time. Also since no one has mentioned it, a website called Edelweiss books is good
I’m on the fence with Eidelweiss. I have requested books and never hear from them. I don’t bother checking there anymore.
@Marj have you tried just downloading the ones that are available immediately?
@Cass – I don’t want to sound too stupid but where do I find those books?
@Marj you don’t sound stupid, they’re website is so not user friendly. From the home page, click on digital review companies. On the right side of the box where the books are, you can see either request or download. It’s written sideways.
@Cass copies, not companies, sorry
@Cass – Thank you. I will look.
@Cass – the only one that shows is the book I reviewed. I clicked on Review Copies. Is that right?
@Marj If you click here: https://www.edelweiss.plus/#dashList=0&page=1 and scroll down you should see several books, in yellow there’s REQUEST and in green there’s DOWNLOAD. Hope this works for you
I have a different screen. On yours I couldn’t log in but it has been awhile. Thanks for all your help.
How do you get on an author’s review team? Or receive requests from authors to review?
For an authors review team it varies, but definitely join your favorites newsletter! Usually a history of reading and reviewing their books is required. I started receiving review requests directly from authors almost as soon as I started my blog. Most are from indie authors which is great, I’ve discovered SO many new authors this way. But it’s not like Harlan Coben and Emily Giffin are searching out reviewers haha
I was shocked when I was approved for Emily Giffins new one. I’m currently reading Tara Jenkins Reid – Daisy Jones and the Six. Pretty good. Approval was almost immediate. Too bad Work is interfering with my reading!
On netgalley, the more good reviews you do, the more likely you will be picked by publishers who have authors like Lisa Unger, Lisa Scottoline, or I recently did one for Karin Slaughter. If you Google book reviewers yellow pages, you can find many sites to sign up with, that’s how quite a few authors have found me. Also, smaller indie publishers like Wolfpack publishing are always looking for reviewers.
@Kathy it’s amazing!! I loved every page ?
@Amy which one lol
@Kathy lol Daisy Jones!!
It is pretty good!
Small world I’m actually a huge fan of your blog!!!!
@Amy I just signed up!

@Marj yay so awesome! It was a great book, I really love that authors books.
