PRINT GALLEYS: An Efficient Way To Generate Sales

Launching your book is no easy task. You need to do some diligent preparation months prior to the launching of your book. If you want to launch your book with strong word of mouth and sales right out of the gate then print galleys will do the trick. Distributing some galley proofs for advance reading is one way of promoting the book. The more work you will do for promotion before the publication date the more people will already know about it and that means more sales to come. Galleys or advanced reader copies are printed versions of the book that serves as give away for free to reviewers, bloggers, distributors and other industry contacts. A galley proof is essentially a product sample.

However, the book is not done yet though there are sending out review copies about three months earlier before the book launch date. It means that they send out galley proofs for review. Galley proofs are so famous because they are created for proofreading and copy-editing purposes. In printing and publishing, proofs are the preliminary versions of publications that are meant for review by authors, editors, and proofreaders often with extra-wide margins. These are proofs that are uncut and unbound or others electronically transmitted. It is also used for promotional and review purposes.

It is a standard-setting that in order to get a professional book review, galley proofs must be printed way ahead about months in advance. Most publishers do, they have the book printed well in advance of the publication date in order to distribute at trade fairs, festivals and via sites such as good reads approximately about 6 months before the publication date. And like in another promotional strategy, the more work you do to promote your work before publication date, the more people will already know about it and that means more sales are seen.
