If you want to launch your book with strong word of mouth and sales right out of the gate, then you need to do some groundwork months in advance. One way of doing this is to get your book some professional book reviews. Sending your book in at least three months to professional trade reviewers before publication can help. However, sending out review copies months before your book’s launch date doesn’t mean it has to be totally finished. Instead, you can send bound galleys or Advance Reader Copies for review.
Bound galleys in Boston, MA are produced for proofreading prior to printing the final version of an upcoming book. Its purpose is to get reviewers such as other authors, booksellers, bloggers, and other trade people who can generate word of mouth and provide feedback on your work. Bound galleys don’t have fancy layout or chapter graphics but the manuscript itself is basically done. They are edited and revised extensively, although there may still be some typos and glitches. These are what proof-readers are using to review the final draft to make sure there are no errors.
With digital book printing, printing bound galleys is better and faster than traditional printing. Despite the fact that they are still in the review stage, these book proofs must still be clearly printed and perfectly bound. Bound galleys can help market your book and help build buzz before your book launches. This will give you more opportunities to achieve higher book sales.
