NetGalley Germany Features Galleys by Becky Albertalli, Oliver Pötzsch
In our interview with NetGalley chief Susan Ruszala, she spoke of the company’s coming launch in Germany.

Now we have word from her that the NetGalley.de is live and is operative, a cooperative effort with vorablesen.de.

NetGalley Germany is now providing access to digital galleys in German, and connecting the content of German publishers to professional readers and influencers, the company says in a prepared statement.

From the news release:

NetGalley-logo NetGalley“The German site [carries] titles in all genres. Digital review copies from authors such as Guillaume Musso, Fredrik T. Olsson, Nele Neuhaus and Oliver Pötzsch, as well as Jennifer L. Armentrout and Becky Albertalli, can now be requested at netgalley.de.”

Marguerite Joly, Head of New Business Initiatives at UIllstein, is quoted in the statement saying: “We are in touch with a number of German publishers, and looking forward to connecting with them at the Leipzig Book Fair.”

The company plans an official event in recognition of the launch on Saturday (March 19) at noon in Leipzig.

And with Germany being added to its list of markets, NetGalley now is operating in five major international markets — including North America, Australia, the UK, and France — and delivers galleys to professional readers (critics, reviewers, bloggers, librarians, educators, media members) on behalf of more than 300 publishers.
