AMACOM Books on NetGalley

AMACOM has been working with NetGalley, a website where publishers can invite contacts to view their print or digital galleys and readers can request galleys they want to review, for about nine months now and we just realized we haven’t shared it on the blog (although if you’ve been monitoring our Twitter and Facebook you’ve probably seen news about it).

We posted Just Listen: Discover the Secret to Getting Through to Absolutely Anyone by Mark Goulston in July 2009, before its September publication, and took it down in December (time’s up!). We have three upcoming titles on there now–all with a techie bent, so we hope all you bloggers, twitterers, and others are interested in requesting them.

(1) The AMA Handbook of Public Relations by Robert L. Dilenschneider. (NetGalley page; AMACOM page)

(2) The On-Demand Brand: 10 Rules for Digital Marketing Success in an Anytime, Everywhere World by Rick Mathieson (NetGalley page; AMACOM page)

(3) Wild West 2.0: How to Protect and Restore Your Online Reputation on the Untamed Social Frontier by Michael Fertik and David Thompson (NetGalley page; AMACOM page)

If you’d like to request AMACOM titles on NetGalley, here’s some advice on what to do.
(1) Browse the catalog to get a feel for the website.
(2) Check out the FAQs to see if your questions are answered.
(3) Register and enter all your information.
(4) Fill in all your profile information as much as possible, including all your web links, what type of books you are interested in, which publications you review for, and how you like to work with publishers. (**This is essential for determining whether your e-galley request will be approved.**)

Right now, AMACOM e-galleys are available in PDF, Kindle, Sony Reader, and web browser via Netgalley.

Also be sure to check out the “Follow the Reader” blog as well as the #followreader discussions on Twitter every Friday from 4:00pm – 5:00pm EST with Kat Meyer and Charlotte Abbot moderating.
