Simon & Schuster Galley Grab beta

I was reading my daily email from Shelf Awareness today and at the top was a banner advertising Lisa McMann’s upcoming release of Cryer’s Cross, which will release 02/08/11. The banner said "Click here to read the eGalley!" so I clicked!

Here’s the banner for you to see too! CLICK HERE to go to the Simon & Schuster Galley Grab beta registration site.

If you’re a blogger, librarian, bookseller, teacher, journalist, producer or other publishing professional you are eligible to register for eGalleys through this service!

I hope to see many more eGalleys from this publisher as it’s one of my favorite publishers and I can’t wait to read Lisa McMann’s new release!

    1. That’s awesome! Enjoy! The new ones are so pretty compared to my original device.

      I’d highly suggest signing up for a NetGalley account so you can get some free eGalleys from them too! šŸ™‚

  1. I just got the email from them, and there’s SO MUCH MORE!!! There’s Wither, Choker, Haven, Deadly, Slice of Cherry and a lot more. šŸ™‚ I don’t know how I’m going to read them all though.

  2. I am a teen book reviewer for the bookstore I work at. I signed up for GalleyGrab and got Cryer’s Cross. But I was just wondering when you got your email for Wither and Choker? I have been waiting to review these books. I have been signed up for 2 days now and was wondering if I would be recieving the email soon, or if there is something else I have to do. Thanks!

      1. Oh that stinks for us! But I’m kinda glad, I was hoping it wasn’t just me! I sent them an email but hadn’t received a response.

  3. I sent them an email a while ago and still haven’t recieved a response. I sent it multiple times too. I don’t know why I never received the newsletters, or why the emails I sent never recieved a response…

    1. The only reason I can think that you wouldn’t receive a reply is if they didn’t approve you for their requirement. Are you a blogger? Libririan? I’d assume they’d approve you if you fall into their approved categories.

  4. I review books through the bookstore I work at. I was approved for Cryer’s Cross though, so I it wouldn’t make sense that they wouldn’t at least reply saying that I didn’t fit their criteria, especially sense I was already approved for a previous book. Well, I sent them a new email and hopefully they will respond this time. Thanks for your help.

  5. Hello,

    I just signed up today for Galley Grab and I got an e-mail saying I was approved and to download my galley follow the instructions. Which I did, but it was a title. I was wondering is that what happened to you at first and then you got the newsletter?

    Or did I just get approved for this book? lol

  6. I can’t remember. I think that’s how it worked for me. But I also signed up for a specific title, and had to sign up for the program to get it.

  7. I just went through the same thing. I signed up and got the email giving me access to Mystery Galley, clicked and got Cryer’s Cross. I was so excited that I didn’t even think about other books, but after reading this I’ve realized that it’s not just a one-at-a-time thing. Thanks for the heads up! I sent an email. šŸ™‚
