And, considering that we are hearing from multiple sources these days that publishers are cutting back on ARCs, the timing couldn’t be better.
And now there’s the entry of NetGalley into the mix.
Here’s how it works. Reviewers simply sign up for the site and request copies of digital ARCs in which they are interested. The content will then, presumably, be delivered to the reviewer upon approval by the publisher. Hey, and since the company prez also tells Galleycat that the digital ARCs will work for Kindle, the Sony Reader, PCs, and other devices within a few months, this is looking good.
