A quick question - does anyone here have any experience of using NetGalley or BookFunnel to upload their book and get it out to readers for Goodreads reviews before publishing it on Amazon? I see this has worked well for some authors, enabling them to gather dozens of reviews on Goodreads before uploading to Amazon, and just wondered if you have any experience of this, how it works and what NetGalley is like to work with in this regard? I have used BookFunnel and think they're pretty good, but is there a function on NetGalley where you can distribute your book to people on that site who are not your personal subscribers but just people browsing around NetGalley looking for books? BookFunnel seems to be restricted to you uploading a personal mailing list.

The idea is to get a novel out to as many people as possible, and get them sharing it on Goodreads before the official Amazon release date, for the purposes of increasing the number of reviews going down in the early days of release.

Many thanks in advance, as ever  :)

    Hidden Gems would be a more likely way to accomplish what you want.
