It’s galley giveaway week!
Isn’t that fantastic?
Unless you’re saying to yourself, “Maybe? Because I’m not exactly sure what a galley is.”
In which case, let me explain. A galley is another name for an ARC which is another name for an advance reader copy. ARCs are bound galleys that are printed in advance of the actual publication. ARCs are sent to the author and also bloggers and reviewers. They will usually have a little sticker or something on the front that says, Advance Reading Copy or Not For Sale or Advance Uncorrected Proof. So there may be typos or spacing issues or other things that will not be a part of the final, printed book. So if you win one, please keep that in mind.
I’m going to hold three giveaways this week. One for Canada, one for the U.S., and one for my international readers. Here’s how it will work:
Day one (that’s today!) will be for Canadian residents only. In other words, if you enter the giveaway — and you win — you must live in Canada and have a Canadian mailing address.
The giveaway will run for 24 hours (starting today at 12:00 noon CST). You can earn extra entries by following me on Twitter or liking my Facebook page (but don’t worry if you’ve already done those things. You can still enter the giveaway).
One quick thing I want to mention: Comments are moderated on this blog, so if you leave a comment you might not see it right away. I try to moderate them as quickly as I can, but sometimes I’m away from my computer or phone and can’t do this immediately. I wish I didn’t have to moderate at all, but the spam was getting out of hand.
So remember, today’s giveaway is for CANADIAN RESIDENTS ONLY.
Tuesday’s giveaway will be for my international readers. Wednesday’s will be for the U.S.
Happy Monday and good luck!!
