I'm a Book Trade Professional - What feedback do you recommend I send to the publisher?

Reviewerbadge.png All publishers and authors like to know how their digital review copies are being utilized, especially by their peers. Many industry professionals use NetGalley to preview books for licensing or rights, events, or to preview the book to provide endorsements/early blurbs.

Please refer to our NetGalley Review Guidelines and check out ways that Book Trade Professionals can provide meaningful Feedback:
