E is for Entangled!
One of my favorite publishing companies out there is Entangled Publishing. You find any, and all types of books by them but my favorite, by far, is the Brazen line. When I first started blogging, I had no clue what this whole ARC thing was. In fact, I didn’t even know what ARC stood for. Entangled made it easy for me to understand, and set myself up to review for them.
While tooling around the internet and checking out book sites, one day I stumbled upon Entangled’s website. It was insta-love! From there, I just clicked through things and figured out that you could sign up to review for them. To request ARCs in exchange for honest reviews.
Now, I’d already been blogging for a month or so, which considering some of the bloggers out there have been doing this for years, that makes me a baby. (WHR is still less than a year old! It’s birthday is in May.) Anyway, I signed up to do ARC’s through them. At first it was just one, here or there, then it turned into most of my ARCs being via them. They still are, in fact. So much so, that I got lazy and made an ARC graphic.
I have reviewed countless ARCs for Entangled at this point. From their Braze, Bliss, Lovestuck, Covet, and Embrace lines, I’ve read something from all of them. In fact, I’m likely missing some of the lines.
Why did I do E for Entangled? Aside from it being one of my absoulte favorite places to find ARCs, it is also the first place I send people who want to dig into the reviewer/blogsphere. It is extremely diverse in it’s book selection, so that there is something for everyone. Even when it comes to the ARCs. There are even Teen ARCs. You choose what you want to read.
That is probably the number one question I get emails and Facebook messages about. How do I get started? Where do you find your ARCs?
I now have a huge list of different places I get ARCs from. However, if you’re just getting started, go here. http://www.entangledpublishing.com/ Take a virtual walk around the website. (You will want to go under about and opt-in for reviewers. Then just watch your email.) Get a feel for it. They have all manner of things to help out bloggers when it comes to reviewing and showing off books. Widgets, countdowns, etc. (Although be warned, they usually don’t work on WordPress! It doesn’t like Java.)
Not only do they have great tools to help you, but they have fantastic authors too! So it makes the reading fun. Not to mention the people you work with, the editors are awesome! They have events on Facebook, giveaways, and so forth. It is a great way to dive into blogging, to give it a try, without smothering yourself and being overwhelmed.
Curious about my Entangled reviews? Well, look for the ones with the ARC graphic shown above. Any questions, send an email, comment, sky write me. I’m always willing to help!
