Book ARC vs. Galley: What the heck?

My galleys for Beautiful Writers are here! Is it weird that I slept with her by my pillow the first night? 🛌 To be more accurate, these babies are my “uncorrected Advance Review Copies"—or ARCs. What’s the difference? Galleys are rough proofs of your book (usually the...

New York's # 1 book influencer, author, DAILY podcaster, and publisher, Zibby Owens, is here today on the Beautiful Writers Podcast! Joining her is Peruvian mountaineer, humanitarian, and social entrepreneur, Silvia Vasquez-Lavado, the first openly gay woman to climb Everest and all seven summits (who happens to be one of Zibby's favorite writers). Welcome to another literary love-fest!Hello! With only seven days until pub day for my #BeautifulWritersbook, I couldn't help myself. I had to record a podcast with these fantastic writers and miraculous human beings. Why now? Because I couldn't get their missions or memoirs out of my mind. Zibby's #Bookends: A Memoir of Love, Loss, and Literature and Silvia's #IntheShadowoftheMountain: A Memoir of Courage (Selena Gomez will soon play in the movie) stole my focus and my heart.Sometimes the best thing to do when you're busy is dive into a great book—or TWO! I'm so excited to share this episode of the podcast with you, where we get honest about the magic and mayhem of taking our work and manifestations to new heights.From overcoming extreme shyness, abuse, loss, and addiction and channeling our pain into healing words (and, in Silvia's case, trekking to help victims of trafficking find a sense of peace and closure), you could say we're women on a mission. One of surpassing our limitations, living large, and changing the world—one step, one reader, one beautiful book at a time.Go to beautifulwriterspodcast.com for all the links, or listen on apple podcasts https://apple.co/3A1FVAiWrite on! ✍️ xo#BeautifulWritersPodcast #Memoir #ZibbyOwens #SilviaVasquezLavado ...
