Thought I’d share this bit of information for those who aren’t sure what a galley or an ARC is and a link to some specifics. And I’m not talking about that kind of galley.

The post is written by Chris Robley, but I think Chris is a bit behind the times. I think a print galley is fine, but I’ve used ebook galleys a lot more often. It’s cheaper for the self-published author and most serious readers have ereaders anyway and like to use them.

Make sending out ebook galleys (and paper books if you like)  part of your prelaunch list.
