Galley Proofs and

Advance Review Copies


You will be provided by a completely formatted galley proof, printed on 8.5” x 11” paper with crop marks indicating the actual size of the book. This is your least expensive opportunity to find and make changes and corrections. Changes to the formatted book itself from your corrections on the galley are charged at $50/hr. As soon as the changes have been made, you will receive a corrected pdf file for your approval. If you prefer a new corrected paper galley proof, there is a minimum charge of $7.50, varying with the size and length of the book, plus FedEx charges to get it to you.

The review of books takes place before the actual publication date. If you want to have professional prepublication reviews, you need to allow five to six months for the process.  Print runs for ARCs run typically 10-25 copies and can be bound in either a finished cover with the words:

“uncorrected proof  •  not for sale”

prominently displayed, or they can be bound in a plain paper cover with information concerning publication dates, etc. The special preparation for ARCs is also charged at $50/hr.
