NetGalley and Perseus Books Group have announced a partnership, kicking off immediately, which will allow Perseus and all of its distributed publishers (clients of Perseus Distribution, Publishers Group West and Consortium), to take advantage of NetGalley’s digital galley services at a preferential rate, and streamlines the onboarding process for new publishers. NetGalley has similar agreements with organizations such as the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA), the Association of American University Presses (AAUP), the Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA) and the Independent Publishers Guild (IPG) in the UK.
Clay Farr, v-p of marketing for The Perseus Books Group, commented, “We’re delighted to recommend the NetGalley service to the 350+ independent publishers that we serve, and to offer them a cost-effective way to sign up. The Perseus in-house publishers have been using NetGalley for over a year, incorporating digital galleys creatively in our campaigns and connecting with NetGalley’s growing community of readers and influencers. This is a natural complement to our Constellation digital service which already includes more than 30,000 digital titles.”
