Here at Publication Consultants, we are always looking for ways to improve our authors’ reach into the world at large.
Getting books into the hands of reviewers nationally and internationally is now a little easier. We have found Net Galley, a fast and simple way for a reviewer or media person to find your book and read it for review, or to plan an interview, have you write an article or send them approval to publish an excerpt; whatever they would like.
Back in the old days, postage and personnel were cheap, so sending out a flock of books to the best reviewers was easy. And that was partly because only about 50,000 books a year were published. Now, more tha a million are published in the United States alone, every year.
On the plus side, there are many more media, with many more reviewers, editors, and interviewers who need material each and every day, and often around the clock.
When you agree to make your books available to such media professionals, you fulfill a need of theirs. You become their book supplier, someone they can depend upon. Electronic means through the Net Galley site just makes it easier for them to review each of your new books.
We announce the availability, and those reviewers or TV and radio people can request a copy for a limited amount of time, usually about a month.
If this new service is of interest to you for your books, kindly send us an email right away.
