I’m thrilled to share some great news. Forged in Dreams and Magick was uploaded yesterday on NetGalley to a wonderful first day response!
Enormous thanks go to my friends, Kristi from Kindles and Wine and Annie from Under the Covers Book Blog, for giving me phenomenal feedback on how they each use NetGalley.
In the coming months, I’ll be posting some of my behind the scenes planning and results in my book-publishing odyssey with a series entitled Transparency in Self-publishing. For now, I’ll share a small taste of my research and first day results of my foray into NetGalley.
So far, after 21 hours of the title being active, I’ve had 29 requests from a fabulous mix of people:
~ (2 large US booksellers, 1 large British bookseller’s reviewer)
~ (who read to recommend books and purchase for their libraries)
1 Reviewer for a book-promoting radio station
1 Editor-in-chief from a national best-selling magazine
20 Reviewers of all levels of reach
~ (many belonging to book clubs and book groups)
Without knowing what to expect from taking the plunge and experimenting with NetGalley, I have to say I’m pleasantly surprised. My goal with NetGalley was to reach new audiences through potential influencers in their fields, and it seems my title has interested a wide variety of the very people I hoped to reach.
I’m staying grounded with the results, as their request only means Forged in Dreams and Magick captured their interest. My wish is that they will read and enjoy the book. Should they enjoy the book, I’m hopeful they will review it and buzz about it within their spheres of influence.
We shall see what happens, and I will keep you all posted!
Meanwhile, if you’re a reviewer, blogger, bookseller, librarian, book club or book group participant, media professional, educator, or anyone who enjoys reading books and sharing your thoughts about them with others who enjoy reading books, I encourage you to join NetGalley.
