HarperCollins is the latest publisher to sign with NetGalley to deliver ARCs, promotional materials, and other content digitally. The publisher’s initial title with NetGalley—Judgment and Wrath by Matt Hilton, which Morrow will publish August 17--debuts at ThrillerFest today.
To start, Harper is making titles from Avon, William Morrow, and Eos available through NetGalley. Eos, the company’s science fiction and fantasy imprint, will use NetGalley to distribute the Eos Reader, a sampling of introductory chapters and other exclusive content of forthcoming SFF and “urban fantasy” titles, at ComicCon International in San Diego (July 22-25). Avon will distribute a sample of Marjorie M. Liu’s November title In the Dark of Dreams via NetGalley at the Romance Writers of America conference in Orlando on July 30.
Other forthcoming NetGalley titles include the Avon romances Passions of a Wicked Earl and Pleasures of a Notorious Gentleman, both by Lorraine Heath; The Reckless Bride by Stephanie Laurens; Crown of Crystal Flame by C.L. Wilson; Ten Ways to Be Adored When Landing a Lord by Sarah MacLean; His Darkest Embrace by Juliana Stone; and First Love Cookie Club by Lori Wilde.
HarperCollins director of advertising and promotion Debbie Mercer said, “Using NetGalley helps streamline the distribution process, cut costs, and increases the reach of our marketing and publicity campaigns.”
