Why add Audio Excerpts to NetGalley?
Promoting all book formats is good for all books! Plus, you will receive early feedback from the NetGalley community. We built the Audio Excerpt feature based on our conversations with audio publishers, and we’re excited to provide you with valuable data. Listeners on NetGalley will be prompted to answer whether they like the narrator, if they want to listen to the rest of the audiobook, whether they would recommend this audiobook to others, and whether the excerpt "draws you in" and "gave you a feel for what this book is about." You’ll be able to see the aggregated responses, Plus, we’ll provide you with the average listening time.
NetGalley’s community includes over 450k members who are reviewers, bloggers, librarians, booksellers, educators, and media. Audio Excerpts will be heavily promoted to NetGalley members throughout 2020, including a bonus Featured carousel that will highlight books with Audio Excerpts for free. We look forward to including yours!
