NetGalley, the online electronic galley service operated by Firebrand Technologies, announced a partnership today with the Evengelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA), offering a discounted rate on NetGalley’s services to ECPA member publishers. NetGalley, a rapidly growing service whose clients include publishers such as Little, Brown, Harlequin, and Milkweed Editions, enables publishers to electronically send and monitor galleys of their books.

The ECPA agreement will make NetGalley a member benefit for ECPA members. The cost of NetGalley’s services will depend on the number of titles each publisher has on NetGalley, but ECPA publishers will receive a 10% discount on normal NetGalley rates. Two ECPA member publishers, Moody and Barbour, have already signed on with the service.

For book reviewers, eGalleys are the wave of the future, whether they like it or not, and large-scale agreements like this will speed the transition. Look out for more agreements like this.
