NetGalley – Discover, Request, and Review New Books

A fellow writer (Kersten Hamilton, author of the book Tyger Tyger, A YA urban fantasy) recently contacted me to tell about NetGalley. I thought the idea sounded so interesting that I wanted to share the information with you. Long story short, NetGalley allows book reviewers to request e-galleys from publishers they are interested in reviewing books for.

“NetGalley is an inexpensive and green way for publishers to share their digital galleys securely. Professional readers—reviewers, media, bloggers, journalists, librarians, booksellers and educators—can all use NetGalley for FREE to read and request galleys they want to review. Welcome, and happy reading!” NetGalley.com

On the NetGallery website you can browse by publisher, genre, and catalog category. From what I can see the service is free and easy to use. Here is a list of publishers using NetGalley.
