Bound Galleys Are Great In Every Way

One of the most common questions that authors have is what will their print proofs look like? Today let’s discuss if bound galleys are right for you. Since a bound galley is the pre-publication version of your upcoming published book, the appearance will be that of a printed, perfect bound book. The cover of the bound galley is generally not the cover of the book to be published, but the bound galley cover contains information useful to marketing the book to reviewers, bookstore distributors and buyers. Comments from these reviewers are frequently printed on the back of the production (i.e. Bookstore) version of the book printed after the review stage.

A printed galley looks just like a book with a cover and book binding, except there is usually a notice on the front cover that reads "Uncorrected Bound Galleys. Not For Sale." Most galleys are printing while your book is with the proofreader, so they are expected to have a few errors. Take note that bound galley may contain handwritten editorial marks. It may be missing photographs, illustrations, charts, and even text that will, however, eventually appear in the final finished edition.

These are often not the same size the published book will be. The size of a bound galley is based on printing economics. Usually they are 5 3/8" x 8 3/8" and frequently are 6" x 9". Other formatted bound galleys such as oblong bindings or odd sizes are available and are used. Bound galleys are printed on specially designed printing presses. The physical appearance of the bound galley is distinctive, and reviewers can readily distinguish a bound galley from a finished book.

It is certainly our experience that readers pay attention to books that have been endorsed by people who are famous and those highly respected personalities. As such preparing bound galleys is really an advantage.
