Bloggiesta-F15

This year along with participating, I am hosting a challenge.

I have a simple challenge for you, contact a publisher and ask for an ARC.

Don’t worry! This is not as scary as it seems. (scroll down to pub list)

I am going to make this easy. In this post I am going to talk about how I do it, and even give you the contact info. This is one of the best ways to get those ARCs after NetGalley and Edelweiss. I like to peruse the publisher’s catalogs of upcoming releases. Edelweiss is also a great resource for catalogs, or you can just google Publisher’s Name Catalog Season Year (ex: St. Martin’s Press Catalog Winter 2015). If you are uncertain which publisher to contact, please look up the book/author on their website or on Amazon, Goodreads, or Barnes and Noble. Writing to the wrong company/imprint will get you nothing. Feel free to send in requests for 2-3 books if they have a few you really want to review prior to the release date.

Things to include in your request email:

Your name and blog (html address)

Why you want to review the book

The name of the book, author and ISBN

Blog stats from the month prior

  • posting frequency
  • unique visitors monthly
  • alexa and/or google rank
  • # of subscribers
  • social media (links and followers)
  • links to other reviews you have done of their books

THANK THEM

Your name, email and, blog url at the bottom. You could put a phone number here to if you want.

ARC Request Form

There are LITERALLY thousands of publishers. I only listed a few here. I am going to keep updating this list as I find more contacts.

If the company you need to contact is not listed 1)google the name, 2)find their contact page and email, 3)come back here and share the page in the comments.

Even if they don’t send you the book, don’t give up. You should send them a link to your review (amazon and goodreads, too, if you review there). This will help in the future when you request books. I always send reviews of ARCs I have done to the publisher, even if I got the book somewhere else.

Did you do it? Leave a comment so we know you did.
