Who uses NetGalley? I have a question.
I do. What’s up?
I use NetGalley.
I do. Ask away.
I’ve been posting my reviews after reading the book. Is there any protocol on timing of posting reviews? I mean, it really doesn’t make sense to post a review now for a pub date of next April.
I post them immediately on Goodreads because it then shows to others like friends etc, that might add the book to their TBR list. That’s a plus for the publisher and author, people seeing reviews now. When the book comes out I post my review on Amazon.
I post as soon as I am done, I think this allows for any changes should there need to be any, and it also assist with pre-orders and whatnot.
I think they want you to post during g the week of release.
That’s what I do
You can message the publisher and ask, but I think they are happy that you posted a review and not worried about the timing. Early reviews help drive pre-orders.
I agree Amy. I work with an author and we’re thrilled to get early reviews on Goodreads.
I was told to post on good reads after I read it and Amazon after it comes out???
That’s what most do Cathy. I’m with you on that.
I’m mostly a newbie so I will be listening in…
What is it
Sabrina Netgalley is a service that some authors / publishers use to allow readers / bloggers / reviewers a chance to read ARCs with the hopes they will review the book on Goodreads / Amazon / wherever. Some books are ‘read now’ which means anyone has access that joins Netgalley. Some are by request and either the author or the publisher approves or denies people’s requests. ARCs are then sent directly to your Kindle or Nook (I think Nook is supported).
Some of the publishers will email you and tell you when to post e review by or state so not post before
I post on Goodreads with my review to NetGalley. My blog review some out on publication day and I share that on social media and Amazon. Publishers want you to wait but early reviews on Goodreads does prompt other reviewers to request a book for review. I know I have!
NetGalley and Edelweiss are sources For prepublication galleys. Reviewers request a book and publishers grant access to those they choose.
I post right away on Goodreads and NetGalley. Pre-release feedback is important and I think the point of ARCs (just my opinion)
Yes, but I read somewhere certain publishers did not want them posted too far in advance.
They typically let me know if that’s the case (in an email)
If I’m given specific instructions, I follow those.
Thank you, everyone! 🙂
What is an ARC
Advanced Reader’s Copy
Ahh thanks. I do netgalley reviews but did not know that term
What is net galley?
Hahaha I’m making sure everyone is educated. 😊
I post my review as soon as I’m done unless they specifically ask that I wait until release date or close to release date.
I’m so glad I haven’t done anything wrong. I don’t think about things like this until someone asks me a question I can’t answer.
I post mine pretty quickly if not I don’t seem to get any of the books I am interested in. I then re-post to Amazon the day the book releases. Most want early reviews on Goodreads.
