News from NetGalley

New changes at NetGalley help better connect you to books you’ll love
—Susan Ruszala, President, NetGalley

Have you noticed anything new when you login to NetGalley? We made a series of changes to the site last week designed to make it even easier for readers to browse, request, organize and provide feedback on titles they are reading through NetGalley.

When you next Browse the NetGalley catalog to view titles available for request from our publishers, you’ll see we’ve added two new links. READ NOW titles can be immediately accessed by a member—-so if you’re new to NetGalley, or new to professional reading and recommending, this is a great place to start. Many of our publishers list their titles there for a limited time (sometimes just a day or two), so think of this as a surprise bucket of new books just waiting for you.

And, if you are auto-approved by a publisher, you’ll see a new link for “Auto-approvals” when you Browse. When a publisher auto-approves you, you can automatically access any of their titles available in the catalog. This section is like your own customized catalog—-and is only visible to you, when you sign in.

How and why does St. Martin’s Press use NetGalley?

Here at St. Martin’s Press we use NetGalley to provide egalleys of our books for review to librarians, booksellers, media professionals, bloggers, and everyone in between!

But it’s also a really important tool for us to find new readers for our books. We’re always trying to figure out the best way to reach those of you who are new to the blogging world while still maintaining and growing the great relationships with those of you we’ve been working with for years.

That’s a tough balance to strike, so hallelujah for the Public Catalog! We respect and appreciate the work that you do to spread the good word about our books, and we want to make it as easy as possible for you to find new authors to read, love, and review. Posting our books in the Catalog and asking you to request the ones you’d like to read and potentially review gives us the perfect opportunity to get more of our books in the hands of who want to read them most.   Continue reading “Recipes for Success: How Publishers Use Your Reviews”
