Bound Galleys Create Sales for Bound Books - Boston, MA

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, June 03, 2014

When you want book reviewers to give their opinions, promote a book prior to printing it, or need to sell the book with distributors, use Bound Galleys.

Bound galleys are pre-publication versions of upcoming books to be published. Their cover may not be generally the cover of the book to be published. However, they contain the important information used in marketing the book to reviewers or distributors.

Though still in the review stage, bound galleys are already printed, perfect bound books, and are often not the same in size with the final finished edition. They are often termed as uncorrected page proofs or advance reader copies, printed using specially designed printing presses. Their designs are distinctive enough to readily distinguish them from a finished version or production copy of the book.

Pre-publication book printing in Boston, MA provides a means for book reviewers and editors to read and evaluate a reading material. Chosen comments and remarks from experts that book enthusiasts recognize are often printed on the back of the production copy of the book after it has been reviewed, making it more likely to be sold.

Bound galleys help the production copies of certain books to land on the shelves of the important independent bookstores and and best book chains. They can be an author's ticket to interviews and feature stories. They also assist publishers in marketing, promotional, and sales activities. Book buyers and distributors use them to get shelf space and sell books. Bound galleys are a cost-efficient sales motivator, effectively stimulating wholesalers' orders and public requests for bound book versions.

Today, authors and publishers go to The Country Press for all their printing and publishing needs such as Bound Galleys. Here is where the design, development, and dissemination of printed and published materials happen.

Advantages to Self Publishing and Short Run Book Printing

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 09, 2012

There are many advantages to self-publishing. Here are the top seven.

1. You can publish anything – a memoir, a cookbook, a political rant, a philosophical essay. Many topics have no commercial appeal for a publishing house, which has to make a profit. But once a marginal subject is in print and doing well, a publishing house may pick it up.

2. Speed: A self-published manuscript can be on the market in a matter of weeks, while a traditional publisher may take up to two years to get the book out, if they do at all. For topical subjects, this is just too long, as usually the moment has passed and the book is no longer relevant.

3. More Control. With self-publishing, the author has considerably more control over the planning, editing, and marketing process. Even if using a full-service publisher, the author can work with the professional staff and guide the design process towards their personal preferences.

4. Retention of Rights: In most cases as far as corporate-oriented trade publishing, rights - movie, foreign, games, digital – belong to the publisher rather than the author. With a self-published book services, the author is the publisher and therefore retains all rights to the book.

5. Short Run Books. Self-publishers are advised to print only a small number of books at a time. With short run book printing the overall outlay is minimal, and sale of the first run provides the income to pay for the next. With short run printing, the author can fill orders, and have no inventory.

6. Money. The author keeps the full sales price of a self-published book, instead of a small royalty per copy sold from a traditional publisher. With print-on-demand sales, the author is paid a higher royalty, and the author gets the money much faster than with traditional publishing.

7. The book stays in print for as long as the author wants. With conventional publishing, four months is about the average time a book stays of the shelves before often being pulled to make room for something new. You will never see a self-published book remaindered.
