View Full Version : NetGalley or Review blog tour?

07-29-2015, 02:15 AM
I need to do some book promo. This is all very new to me, but I think I've decided not to do a blog tour as it doesn't seem worthwhile - I think it may be better to spend time trying to get reviews (I could be wrong about this and I'm happy to be told!)

What I'm trying to decide between is putting it on NetGalley or doing a Review Only blog tour (where bloggers post a book review only, not any of the other things they normally post). I've found a few authors from AW that are on NetGalley then looked at their reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. It seems like many of them have more than just a couple of reviews, which is good, but its difficult to tell if they came from NetGalley.

I was wondering what everyone's experience with it is, as an author? Is it worthwhile, or would you recommend something else? Also, if anyone has done a Review Only blog tour, what did you think of it? Thanks in advance for your comments.
