Hey my fellow book enthusiasts!😍 I hope everyone is having a fantastic day and gets to snuggle up with an awesome read today!
I know it’s a Tuesday and you might be thinking “Not her rambling, I’m too exhausted” but “We got this!” We are bad mama jammas and whatever is going on in your life I’m sprinkling some glitter on you because I am just majestic like that! You guys have seen those cute fat fluffy unicorns that are the trend with their majestic ways. That’s it, that’s me! Well if course to make it more like me it better have a supreme pizza 🍕, an assload of books, and is majorly behind on her reviews but you get the picture!😍 No doubt about it, I’m majestic. Now you may think what does that have to do with NetGalley and my ARCs? Well honestly, not a damn thing. I have issues and I’m very random. I frequently burst out with random rambles but my therapist encouraged me to “let it all hang out on my blog or wherever, balls and all!”. Well… she said just be who you are if they don’t like it that’s okay but just be all of you unapologetically but potato/po-TOT-toe. So that’s me a
fat fluffy unicorn who’s going to tell you about ARCs, NetGalley and Publication Dates. I completely understand if you don’t trust my credibility and want to exit my page! It’s all good but the information I am sharing comes from personal experience and publishers that I have asked directly about these sort of things! The publicists professionals asked me not to quote them directly because all publishers are different but they said if anyone has any questions they can message me and I can give you their info for any further questions. I talked to professionals with different questions at Penguin Random House and Kensington Books. I am posting based on the information they provided me. Anything that is a mistake is from my translation and not on the publishers I have asked. The choice is yours but I am going to stop running my mouth and get to the topic at hand.
What is NetGalley?
When I was new to blogging and to NetGalley, I had no idea what I was doing. To be honest I’m some ways I still don’t but to make things better I have lots of Books on it! Anyways I had so many questions about NetGalley what is it first of all and I kept seeing everyone post these “Thank yous” to NetGalley so it had to be something good.
NetGalley is a place where you can get free books but you are expected to give an honest review for said books. Everything is electronic at NetGalley. So you can read on your phone, kindle, other ereaders, tablets, and computers. Unfortunately, they do not directly offer print copies but from my experience when I started NetGalley and turning in EGalleys it opened up a lot of opportunities for me. After five months of having NetGalley, I have publishers write me personal e-mails and offer print copies. I also can get the publishers info and send them requests and they send me print copies by seeing how reliable I am on NetGalley.

*Anyone who is outside U.S. or U.K. can click on any of the links and select their country because I don’t have accounts yet for other locations yet but you are still awesome and count the same!😊*
I have to tell you guys that if you download the kindle app using my link in the pic it helps me as an amazon affiliate but it costs you zip! So it’s a win-win!
There is other questions I have asked publishers here and there over the last two months. The biggest questions that I faced as a newbie and other friends/new bloggers have asked me is..
So here’s the answers that I received when asking different publishers such as Penguin Random House, Kensington and etc., asking on the NetGalley blog and putting all the information together.

My Advice About NetGalley to New Users
Sorry about all that rambling and hope that I made sense! I missed you guys and I am going to try and be more active! This post was mostly done sitting in my drafts and I have been fretting about my reviews so I figured I should post it and take my own advice! I also have to mention as a new member to NetGalley that I wouldn’t have made it through without the help of my bloggy friends Kim and Carrie’s help! They are the bee’s knees and gave me so much support and advice as well!
~Do you have any advice as a veteran user that you would like to add to new NetGalley users or new bloggers who are interested in eARCs? Was this post helpful to any? Do you love NetGalley? Are you interested in joining?
Thanks for reading my post and I look forward to your feedback! I lost someone close to me and have been grieving but I am working on catching up with all my bloggy friends! You guys are the BEST and have missed yoyr faces!

Hello there, Loves! Dani is the name and reviewing and blogging 4 books is game!📚 I am also a free-spirited woman! Some may call me a gypsy or a hippie but that is all good and gravy because I am just customarily me! I am a Tarot & Oracle Reader and have a very strong passion for it. I have a faith of my own that believes fully in my higher self but fully respect others beliefs. I have had Medium, Astroplaning, and Empath abilities my whole life but I am finally putting them to good use within recent years. I love helping people and I'm very open-minded. I also will review Oracle & Tarot Cards and books on my blog as well. If any of this bothers you, I'm sorry but it is who I am. I just ask on my page for everyone to give equal respect! I am an experienced life coach, mental health hotline specialist with my degree in Psychology. I am a complete bibliophile and have a TBR that will outlive me.🌠 I have a fierce passion for the blogosphere because I love sharing my love of reading 📚 and the incredible/amazing and badass people I have met here! I fell in love with reading due to being institutionalised as a child. I have mild dyslexia and battled some huge physical and mental wars as a young child. In the places I was "placed" there wasn't a school more like a daycare and as a child who wanted to be so much more one day, I used books to learn. I treasured every dictionary, textbook and novel I could get my hands on. By the time I was a mid teen, my self taught full bookish education gave me the ability to test above college level and gave me hope.🎸🌠 Since I have become disabled and have lost my ability to spread my social butterfly wings, I in return lost friendships due to my inability to leave home so that left my books. Books opened more doors because it opened me to all of you and now I have the best of friends that the world could offer from the comfort of home. All that mess with being disabled doesnt matter because I have my 3 amazing kids, amazing friends and acquaintances in the World of Blog, and my blog and books give me the super powers to be a badass book blogger! I love people and getting to know people! All that I ask is that anyone on my page treats everyone with equal respect! I am completely open-minded and all about free love. I'm also a very accepting person and I find the beauty in our differences so never feel ashamed to be yourself on this site! 💜💙 Thanks for stopping by Touch My Spine Book Reviews!📚💖💜 I hope your day is full of awesomeness! Namaste! Xoxoxo! Dani💖😜🤘
