#Authors, Get More #Reviews! JOIN an Independent @NetGalley Cooperative.
THE ROMANCE BECKONS INDIE COOPERATIVE
The Romance Beckons Cooperative is a diverse group of authors coming together to list our books on NetGalley. From New Adult to Contemporary, Paranormal to Historical, GLBT to Sci-Fi, we share access to twenty books per month. With heat levels ranging from sweet to erotic, we offer books for all types of reviewers!
With another year beginning, we'll be welcoming back authors who've been a part of the co-op this past year and accepting new authors to join us. Indie authors interested in being a part of the ROMANCE BECKONS INDIE COOPERATIVE should contact me by email. Use "NetGalley CoOp" as your subject.
What Does NetGalley Do?LOOK AT THESE STATS...
NetGalley provides a place where authors/publishers can upload their ebooks (ARCs or older titles) and reviewers can request a copy for review. If approved, NetGalley readers will read and review the titles.
NetGalley gives you fast and easy access to the 120,000 bloggers, journalists, librarians, booksellers, and media people who use NetGalley. And these reviewers are some high profile groups - movers and shakers in the book review realm.
On the first day of getting the Romance Beckons Cooperative started, we had 20 titles live in our online catalog, with 673 approved requests, of which 428 were downloaded immediately. By the end of that week, reviews began rolling in, and requests and approvals continued strong.
Throughout that year, our cooperative listed 240 books which garnered over 7800 review requests. Of those requests, approximately 5950 were approved for review. Of those, approximately 4650 posted reviews. Three authors have been contacted by media professionals regarding tv/ screen options.
Memberships are available for a full year at $325. Authors are welcome to share a membership, alternating selected months, but only one author should serve as the contact person. Once you purchase a membership, you can post one book at a time for the full year (February 2016-January 2017).
