This isn’t an advertisement for Netgalley, but it sure is going to sound like one.
I have a publisher’s account at Netgalley. I give them a fair bit of money, and they present my book for review by readers, booksellers, libraries, and the like.
You can join for free, as a reader, if you’d like. Gives you access to literally hundreds of titles, many of them pre-publications, for you to download and read.
There is a catch. We (the publishers / authors) need your reviews.
Something many people don’t realise is that while an author may wince at a “bad” review — that is, a review written by someone who didn’t like the book, for whatever reason — ANY review is better than no review. Reviews trigger the algorithm to boost the book up the charts a bit. Which gets the title in front of more eyes.
