One of the key elements of a professional marketing and publicity campaign is the advance review copy (ARC)—also known as a galley—usually produced and distributed three to six months before the final book goes on sale.
While direct access to IngramSpark is free, uploading a book and maximizing your sales with distribution across all four corners of the globe does have a cost. (Wait a second…globes don’t have corners?)
What you pay for is a greater value through an experienced and reliable self-publishing partner.
Take a look for yourself. With more potential money in your pocket per book sale, you’d be hard pressed to find the same excellent
service at a comparable value that offers opportunities like these.
