Sending out Galley Proof Copies Takes Time!

Here it  is, Friday afternoon already and I have just about finished selecting my lists of newspapers, magazines, Amazon reviewers, radio shows, talk shows and blogs to receive a copy of the Galley Proof for my Civil War Book, “Rough Enough.”  See the link to the Publisher Direct Bookstore if you don’t already know about the book. It’s a good one!>)

It’s a longer process than one might think. I part because it entails contacting each of the possible reviewers or publishers with information about the book ahead of time and asking them to respond about whether they are willing to review the book.

It would be a waste of time and “mucho dinero” if I were to just blindly send the copies out to anyone in the phone book.  I mean, think about it. Do I want a one in a hundred ratio of reviews to books I send out? Of course not, so it means weeding out those persons who have other priorities or simply don’t do Civil War books at all.

Once I have the lists completed, then out go the requests and hopefully there will be an immediate response with a big “yes” so that I can proceed with the mailings.

I would like to hear from you
