The wait is almost over… full audiobooks are coming to NetGalley! Get ready to start listening soon.
Aside from getting your headphones handy, here’s what you can do now to prepare for the arrival of audiobooks—and increase your chances of getting approved by those publishers:
Update Your Profile.
This is the most important place to demonstrate your reach as an early influencer or reviewer. Introduce yourself to new audio publishers by updating your profile with details about how you spread the word about audiobooks.
Make sure to add all relevant information to your Bio about how you specifically promote audiobooks, including any additional links where you review audiobooks.
Want updates when new books (and audiobooks) are available on NetGalley? Make sure to add to your Reading Habits and preferred Categories. This information is essential to publishers who make approval decisions, and is also used by NetGalley to ensure we're emailing you about the kinds of books you'll love. Make sure you’re receiving NetGalley Newsletters in Subscriptions here, since our first-ever Audiobook Newsletter will be sent this month, too!
