Who Do I Email About Review Books???

So a ton of people have been asking me questions on Formspring about publishers and who to email, etc. I did a post a little over a month ago about ARCs and review books, and what to include in an email so if you haven't seen that, check it out here: There are No Such Things as Free Books

As promised, I'm going to give you guys a list of general publicity email addresses for some of the more popular publishing houses. I know those can be really hard to find, so I'll provide most of the ones I know, and I'll try to answer any of your questions in the comment field! Also, if you're not sure where to find a publisher's catalog you should really check out Edelweiss. It's a great tool for bloggers and reviewers because it provides publisher catalogs all in one place! You can find that here: Edelweiss

Publisher emails:
Macmillan (Here's the entire contact page if you want to check out other imprints)


HarperCollins
For all Children and Teen Books: Sandee.Roston@harpercollins.com (This is not my personal contact, this is just the general publicity contact given on the website)

Hachette


All Scholastic Books: tradepublicity@scholastic.com

These are just some general publicity contacts that you'll find on the publisher's website, which are available to anyone. Please do not email me and ask me for my personal contacts, that is privileged information and I am not willing to share it. Remember that you can always Tweet at publishers and ask them if they have any contact information available for bloggers and reviewers! That's how I managed to get a couple of my contacts. 

If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask in the comments section! And you're welcome! This took forever LOL! Also, if I've forgotten any publishers on this list, just let me know and I'll try to add them!

  5. I think that this is awesome. I have never asked the publishers/publicists/whoever it is that you get ARCs from for and ARC.

    I was wondering if publishers go by the same criterion that is listed on NetGalley when they decide whether to accept/reject bloggers that email them.

    1. Pretty much, I'd say wait til you've been blogging consistently for at least 6 months and have a good amount of unique page views a month as well as a good follower count. It's pretty much all about the numbers, since bloggers are essentially marketing tools for publishers.

  6. First of all, thanks for this information. All though I'm pretty sure I'll be too chicken to use it. I've used netgalley, but I'm kind of backed up on that, because I'm selfish and want to read my own books. :)

    Can I get some advice about what to do to improve my blog?
    I am pretty new to this scene and would likes some constructive criticism(and advice) about my blog. I have about one hundred and fifty unique views from about a month and a half of blogging. I would also like advice on how to better review books. Because I'm a speed reader, should I take notes?

    Also can anyone tell me how to get some follow buttons for goodreads and such?

    1. Hey there:)

      I followed your blog- if you ever have any questions and need someone else (other than the lovely Anna) to ask questions to, feel free :)

      Your blog looks great! If you want to get more followers, I would reccommend that you start doing "Waiting on Wednesday" at Breaking the Spine or Parajunkee's "Follow Friday"... not only will people follow you, but you will discover blogs to comment on :)

      How you write your reviews is your choice, but for me, when I am reviewing a book that a pub. gave me I try to give at least two paragraphs, sometimes more.

      You can get buttons by googling "free social media buttons" or you can just get them from the individual site.

      :)

  7. Wow, thanks so much for this list! The children's/YA contacts for Penguin and HarperCollins should be especially useful!

  8. Wow great post thanks! I haven't tried asking for ARCs yet. Like you said, I want to wait until I'm blogging for at least 6 months. Also, I have enough on my TBR already so I'm trying not to be more greedy lol

  9. I have just a quick question, kind of unrelated to ARCs though. Do you, or should you, tweet the publisher when you review a book? I see some people tweeting the publisher or author when they review a book? Is that common?

    Thanks!

    1. Definitely Tweet the publisher/author if it's a positive review! A lot of times they'll retweet your links and what not! It will also get you on their radar and you might land some contacts with them! I have :)

  10. This is a very great post! Very helpful! Thanks. I guess since Balzer and Bray is an branch of Harpercollins I should email the harper collins one mentioning the book i'm requesting is the Balzer and Bray branch.
    Thanks!

    Also thanks for the advice to contact publishers by twitter after a positive review is made.
