When a publisher sends you an ARC should you or should you not send them an email with the link of the review?
Absolutely! If you get an ARC from a publisher (whether it’s one you requested or unsolicited), you should always email them a link to your review. This helps the publishers get feedback on the books, and it tells the publishers that you are in fact reading the books they’re sending you!
If I was a publisher and I sent you 5 ARCs over the course of 3 months, but you never emailed me your reviews, I would start to wonder whether you were actually reading the books I sent you! Because let’s be honest, publishers don’t have time to manually check your blog all the time to see if the review has gone up.
So help the publishers out and send them your feedback! 🙂 You can send the email to the person who replied to your original request. Or, if they never replied, you can just send the link to their general publicity contact.
