A Guide To ARCs | #2 The Master Who-To-Contact List for Internationals ARC Requests

As the title suggests, I’ve created a list of all publishers that do send out ARCs to international reviewers! Of course, the publishers on this list also send out ARCs nationally so I won’t exclude those wonderful people, but mainly this list is for internationals. Since getting ARCs is often harder for internationals (see this post), and we don’t always know what our options are, I thought it would be a good idea to make a list of contact details for all publishers that send out ARCs to internationals (so that is everyone that does not live in the US. I have not specifically looked for publishers that send out in the UK, but I assume all national UK publishers do that.)

Anyway, there are a couple of things I want to say before we get into this. And it’s fairly important to read this through:

A Disclaimer

  • Sending a request will not give you any rights. Sending out a request does not mean you will receive an ARC.
  • Publishing is a business. People don’t always reply to your emails and people do have a life so DON’T overwhelm them with as many emails as you can send. Please only send out emails for those ARCs you are truly interested in.
  • If you don’t know which ARCs are available, make sure to subscribe to a mailing list (if available) or check the publisher’s website for future releases. Don’t send out requests wayyyyyyy before a book is published.
  • You have a high chance of being turned down if you haven’t shown your dedication to your blog, or haven’t been blogging long, or haven’t shown enough interest, or if your stats are low.
  • If you haven’t read last week’s post, please do. Jess wrote about how to formulate an email to request ARCs.
  • I have been told these publishers send out ARCs to internationals, but I cannot guarantee they do. I have been in touch with some of them, but not all of them.
  • These email addresses are not to be abused in any way. Use them with care.
  • Don’t copy, paste and post this information without asking my permission. You may reblog via wordpress or share via social media, but stealing is not appreciated.
  • The information is either obtained from the publisher’s website and if not, I have personally asked permission for the information to be made available in this post.

If there are any publishers you know of that send out ARCs to internationals, I would love to hear from you! You can email me or message me on twitter, instagram or anywhere else. I hope you found this list useful! I will make a link to this list at the top of my blog someday soon, so it’s always easy to find and I’ll update it if I have more info to add.

Have you ever requested an ARC (as an international or otherwise)? Any tips or tricks that you want to share? Have you had luck with any of the publishers mentioned above (or others)?

  1. I‘ve never received a paperback or hardback ARC, only eARCs, so I don’t have any publishers to add to this wonderful list, but I really wanted to thank you for this post. It‘s truly a great list and I appreciate the work you put into it. Thank you so much 😊♥️

  2. I’ve been blogging for nearly a year now and haven’t really asked for a physical ARC since I started, and I love these guide posts! Thanks a ton! I just sent one of my first mails to a publisher and I’m going to try sending out a few more (I doubt first time’s the charm). Let’s hope I get one soon!

  3. I’m an international blogger and I’ve only received from PanMacmillan.. but I haven’t really seen books of these other publishers yet so this is really helpful. I have received some other books from publishers but it’s really by chance that I got them. One publisher who will never send you one though is Orion. That guy on Twitter ignores me steadfastly. I think the big publishers (like HarperCollins) don’t bother and you’ve got a better chance with the smaller publishing companies.

    1. Haha I’ll avoid Orion then! But lucky that you got to receive books from PanMacmillan! I don’t know whether bigger or smaller publishers are more likely to send out ARCs to internationals, bigger publishers might have a bigger budget but might also prefer US/UK reviewers. I don’t know! But I did actually get an email address of someone at HarperCollins and they do send out ARCs to internationals (I know a friend that got one), but they didn’t reply to my email and I didn’t want to add a personal work email address to my list without permission. I might send them another email about it.

  4. I don’t have any experience with requesting ARCs. But thank you for sharing this with us, I will most definitely try one of them, once I am confident I would actually receive an ARC 🙂

  5. Thank you for this wonderful pieces of info. I’m an international blogger and I do receive digital edition of ARC but never a physical one which I’m still grateful for. But not to all of them, only few publishers.
    Yet, I still want to be thankful you’d done this thing since this is really a great help to me and to others (fellow Int’l) 😊😊😁😄
