Feedback, Beyond the Review

Did you know that as a NetGalley Member, you can submit other forms of Feedback, besides a review? Essentially any information that is relevant to the title and author can be submitted to the publisher, particularly in the Notes portion of the Feedback section. Submitting extra information will help you stay relevant and engaged with that publisher, and for some member types, where your primary objective isn’t to write a review (like making purchasing decisions, for example) this is where you will focus your time when communicating with the publisher.
