Today’s the day for the Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG) where, on the first Wednesday of every month, writers get together to share their insecurities and offer encouragement. The IWSG was created by Alex J. Cavanaugh, and you can learn all about it and sign up for it here. IWSG_Badge

This is going to be short and sweet. I’ve been thinking about advanced reader copies (ARCs) and wondering what is the best way to get them out there for reviews. Do I use the traditional sending out of personal requests via e-mail, blog, etc., or go with something bigger like NetGalley? I’ve read differing opinions on NetGalley, both good and bad. Has anyone tried NetGalley or any other review site? I’d greatly appreciate hearing what other writers have used successfully or not so successfully. Any and all advice is welcome. Thanks so much!
