Netgalley is one of the most successful companies operating in the digital publishing sector. Publishers normally submit e-books to their platform before they are commercially available. They do this because they know readers will write reviews and give their titles free publicity. NetGalley is expanding into Germany this week, at netgalley.de, in cooperation with vorablesen.de. NetGalley Germany is now providing access to digital galleys in German, and supporting German publishers in connecting them to professional readers and influencers.
The German site is already studded with great titles in all genres. Digital review copies from authors such as Guillaume Musso, Fredrik T. Olsson, Nele Neuhaus and Oliver Pötzsch, as well as Jennifer L. Armentrout and Becky Albertalli, can now be requested at netgalley.de.
“We are in touch with a number of German publishers, and looking forward to connecting with them at the Leipzig Bookfair,“ says Marguerite Joly, Head of New Business Initiatives at Ullstein Publishers and leading NetGalley Germany. The official Launch will be celebrated at Leipzig Book Fair on Saturday, March 19th at 12 pm.
