NetGalley Cooperative

For Bloggers & Reviewers
If you are a NetGalley reviewer, visit the ROMANCE BECKONS TITLE PAGE and request books that interest you. NOTE: Books listed in the Romance Beckons CoOp are independently published.

For Authors
The Romance Beckons Cooperative is a group of independent authors teaming up to display our books on NetGalley at a reasonable cost. NetGalley is a website frequently used by publishers to distribute advanced review copies (ARCs) and previously published books to bloggers, reviewers, media, booksellers, librarians, and educators. The pool of reviewers on NetGalley is VAST!

We are always accepting requests for membership from indie authors looking to increase the visibility of their titles with potential reviewers/ readers. Spots are limited. We promote only 15 books each month. If you’re interested in more information, contact us.

$340 (1 year)
Invoices are sent via Paypal and must be paid in full prior to listing your book(s).

$35 (1 month)
Single month listings can be purchased from current NetGalley members who wish to sell an unused month during the year. If interested, send your name and contact info and it will be provided on a list for authors to contact when looking to sell.

Please read through this before contacting us.

What genres and heat levels are permitted?
Our Cooperative embraces all genres and heat levels of romance. We will gladly include New Adult, Contemporary, Historical, Paranormal, Science Fiction and Urban Fantasy. Mainstream, sweet and erotic books are all welcome. The only requirement is that it have a strong romance component.

Who does the actual administrative tasks?
While Paloma serves as our NetGalley liaison, each member receives training to manage their own book listings.

How do my books get uploaded?
Once you've committed to the Cooperative and paid your fee, instructions are provided for submitting your book(s). You can upload a PDF or EPub file though EPub files will provide a better reading experience as the type is "reflowable".

How many books can I upload at a time?
As a member, your fee covers the cost of one listed book at a time. Authors choose when to change their book.

Can I include books published through a publishing agency?
Yes, you can. But you must have approval from your publisher to do so. The intention of the Romance Beckons Cooperative is to assist Indie authors who don't have the help of a large publishing house.

How are review requests handled?
Requests are handled by each individual author, on a case-by-case basis. Each reviewer is vetted using an author's personal criteria which could include: a high number of followers, genre match, quality reviews/feedback, active accounts on Goodreads or Amazon. With a hands-on approach for our members, authors have all the decision making.

What type of book format do reviewers receive?
The Romance Beckons Cooperative has elected to use the more versatile Open (DRM‐free) file. In order to view available books, reviewers must login to NetGalley. Once approved, reviewers can download the book via Adobe Digital Editions, Acrobat Reader, Sony Reader, and other devices that read PDFs/EPubs. Reviewers may also select a "send directly to Kindle" option.

Are there advantages to using Kindle formatting?
The NetGalley FTP site converts a book to Mobi making it possible for reviewers to enter their Kindle email address and have the book directly downloaded. When this type of download occurs, the book is sent via Amazon which applies the protection of a secure, non-transferable file. Using this method of distribution, the book is not able to be copied or shared.

Are books protected from piracy?
While the Open (DRM-free) books will not have an expiration date, we do alert readers that they are receiving an unprotected file and are responsible for observing the copyright. Listed books are only available for download before archived.

How do I receive my reviews?
Authors will have on-line access to all feedback from reviewers.

What if I join and it's not right for me?
Once you purchase time with the Cooperative, we can't refund you should you decide you no longer want to take part. You are allowed to sell your months to other authors. This option can also be used if you don't have need for one of your months. Once your membership is up, you are not under any obligation to renew.

I'm not sure if this is right for me... what if I can't commit to a year?
Try our shorter term option by purchasing individual months from authors looking to sell. Details and costs are listed above.
