Book Review Galleys: What Should They Look Like?

Book Review Galleys: What Should They Look Like?

Now book reviewers quite honestly expect to see a version of the final cover on galleys. But these galley copies are over-printed with a phrase such as Advance Review Copy, Review Copy Only, Galley Copy: Publication Date of December 2013.

So, go ahead and use your real cover on your galley copies, but over print with a banner or attach a bold sticker saying Advance Review Copy Only. You can also print that info, as you suggested, on the inside first page, but make sure it’s on the outside as well – boldly and clearly on the outside where the reviewer can see it at a glance.
