Guide to Self-Publishing

Step 5. Order and Review Proof Copy

Possible Timeframe: 1 – 3 weeks (for initial processing, shipping, and the time it will take you to review the work)

At this point, all publishers (reputable publishers, we might add) will have you order a proof copy before you place a bulk order. This enables you to make certain that everything is the way you want it before you’ve committed to a large order. It makes sense! Even if you’re in a hurry, we encourage you to take advantage of this step. If you need to make changes, it’s better to do it now than after you have 100 copies of your book waiting for you on your doorstep. Once you approve the Proof, that’s it!
