So prior to starting this blog I had a version of it on Tumblr. I used that version to get myself a NetGalley account. You can see the little badge over in the sidebar. So proud.
So far, I have grabbed a few different books, both having been approved manually as well as a few that just let anyone grab em. Witches Protection Plan was a book that anyone could get, for example. I also grabbed the excerpts for Shadow of Self by Brandon Sanders (and thats whats going to be talked about next once I am done) and another excerpt as well, Mystic by Jason Denzel.
My Reading List, so far, from Netgalley is:
Shadows of Self Preview Excerpt
Mystic Preview Excerpt
The Palace Job
The Banished of Muirwood
The last 3 were manual approvals which was awesome, from smaller publishers.
But one thing I requested and did not expect, at all, to be approved for…
Was Deadlands: Ghostwalkers by Jonathan Maberry. Published by bloody Macmillan-Tor/Forge! I am really excited that someone big like Tor is giving a small guy like me a chance. And I am small make no mistake. Sure, this blog gets autoposted to my Facebook, Tumblr, and Twitter, but combined I have about 350 total followers/subscribers.
Funnily enough, my gaming background has made me familiar with the world of Deadlands, both in its original and D20 forms as a tabletop RPG. So this should be fun.
Guess I know what book I am starting tonight after I finish the Shadows of Self Excerpt!
