The 2014 NetGalley Wellness Challenge has officially come to an end (but you can still unofficially join at any time!)


During this year’s Challenge we focused on how NetGalley members “book talk,” meaning how members get the word out about books they read on NetGalley. We provided suggestions and examples via email, social media, 2 live webinars, and in-person at BookExpo America.

Did you miss the Challenge? Check out our recap below, and take advantage of the helpful resources anytime!

image We met with many of our members (particularly bloggers, booksellers, and librarians) in-person at BookExpo America! We walked through their accounts, looked at their stats, their Profiles, and talked about the Feedback they leave and what other information they can provide publishers.

What you can do:

imageBefore you can leave Feedback in NetGalley you need to be approved for a title – to start out on the right foot, look at our Profile examples and suggestions in our Before You Request section. Keep in mind that Publishers make their approval decisions based on your Profile and Bio!
