Information for Bloggers

Bloggers

  • If you are a blogger, vlogger or similar and are interested in receiving review copies from us, here are some quick guidelines.

    Please bear in mind that we produce only a very limited number of review copies and it will not always be possible to fulfil all requests.

    DO
    1.    Register with Bookbridgr
    Bookbridgr is a Hachette-owned resource for book bloggers, giving access to review copies, author interviews and exclusive book content. Being a Bookbridgr approved blogger is the best way to ensure you are on our review copy mailing lists.

    2.    Sign up to NetGalley
    If you’re happy to read digitally, many of our books will be made available on NetGalley in advance of publication.

    3.    Email publicityenquiries@hodder.co.uk
    When emailing requests to this address, please include the following information:
    -    Link to your blog
    -    Visitor and follower stats for your blog and social media channels
    -    The genres you are particularly interested in
    -    Full mailing address

    Please note that our publicity team receive large numbers of enquiries so may not be able to respond to them all.

    DON’T

    1.    Make your requests via Twitter
    In general, our social media accounts are not run by the same people who manage our review copy mailing lists, so this is not the best place to make your requests.

    2.    Panic if you don’t receive a review copy immediately!
    Often our review copy mailings happen in a number of stages rather than all at once. If you see that a proof has been produced and you are a regular recipient of our proofs within that genre, it may be that you are already on the list to receive one – don’t panic if it’s not with you straight away!

    Note: If you have moved and would like us to update our records with your new address, please email publicityenquiries@hodder.co.uk.
