ARC, also known as Galleys, are Advance Reader Copies. Expensive for publishers, but vital for bookselling, ARCs exist for booksellers, librarians, and media outlets to get a sense of a book, so they are able to write reviews, make recommendations, and estimate how many copies to order for their stores and libraries.
Sometimes these books are practically identical to the finished copies, and sometimes extensive rounds of editing have gone between the two printings.
NOTE: Legally, ARCS are not allowed to be sold by anyone - We only charge to cover the cost of shipping!
We can't wait to share these books with you!
