good idea! folk should be posting this info soon in various places...

Nicole Lynn (popcrunchboom) | 8 comments This isn't necessarily relevant to Galley Drops, but I found this link for what books will be appearing at BEA on Edelweiss and thought it might be a helpful: http://www.booksatbea.com/

I don't believe it is fully live until May but you can see some of them right now.

Hope this helps someone and maybe some of these will turn into Galley Drops :)


message 7: by Chris (new)

Chris | 13 comments Publishers Weekly will publish their "Around the Booths" (guide to the exhibitors) on May 4th.

I think this gave some information as to galleys available last year.

Yes, there will be an "Adult Galleys to Grab" and a "Children's Galleys to Grab" section of the PW BEA issue on May 4th. Since a lot of the bookstores don't carry PW anymore, you can get an individual e-issue for nook through bn.com. But, I'm sure someone will post most of the info on here, too.

PW website also tends to publish a couple posts highlighting them a little bit after. not the FULL spread, but its still pretty handy dandy.


message 10: by Sharon (new)

Sharon Layburn (smlnbooks) | 22 comments Just out of curiosity: Do you feel that waiting for/obtaining books from galley drops takes less time or as much time as signings, or does it just depend on the book?

Laura (bookcaselaura) | 202 comments Sharon wrote: "Just out of curiosity: Do you feel that waiting for/obtaining books from galley drops takes less time or as much time as signings, or does it just depend on the book?"

MUCH less. There usually isn't a wait at all. You just show up to the booth at the time they are "dropping" them and grab from a big pile. Depending on the booth, they may hand them out one by one, but even that goes super fast. If it is a very popular book, a line may start before the time, but it will go fast once the time comes. Sometimes you can show up later in the day and there will still be some sitting on the floor of the booths, so it is worth checking back if you missed a "drop" time.


message 12: by Sharon (new)

Sharon Layburn (smlnbooks) | 22 comments Good to know- thanks for the info, Laura!


Andi (Andi's ABCs) (andiabcs) | 13 comments Sharon wrote: "Good to know- thanks for the info, Laura!"

You can also politely ask someone at the booth if they have any copies of a certain book. I was lucky last year doing that a couple of time. I was even given a display book on the last day. It never hurts to ask if you are kind about it.

Sharon Layburn (smlnbooks) | 22 comments Ooh! That's a really nice idea, Andi. Thanks!
I attended BEA last year for the first time, and I feel that I understand the wonderful craziness that is the autograph area, but I didn't really take full advantage of galley drops and booth signings, so I appreciate all the advice and tips!

I'm never going to sleep, because it's time to plan!!!!!


message 20: by Jessica (new)

Jessica | Bookish Serendipity (bookishserendipity) | 30 comments Do any of you know exactly how galley drops work? Do you get there early and wait in line (like a signing) or are the books just left in a pile? Do they tend to be over quickly?

Laura (bookcaselaura) | 202 comments Jessica wrote: "Do any of you know exactly how galley drops work? Do you get there early and wait in line (like a signing) or are the books just left in a pile? Do they tend to be over quickly?"

It can be either. Most often they are in a pile on the floor, but some big name books (like James Patterson) they will have you form a line ahead of time, which does move fast once the time comes. Occasionally they will even give out tickets for galley drops (like they did for Stephen King last year). It never hurts to ask earlier in the day so you don't miss out.

Most of the big publishers will print a schedule of events, including times galley drops, and have them at their booths. Swing by first thing and grab a schedule so you know what books are being dropped when.

Some booths have them in piles on the floor. Some you have to stand in line for. At least those lines go fast.

So excited for this! Quick question though (since I'm new to the PW list). Will they eventually post the times the Galleys are dropped off or do we need to wait till we get there and they have those papers/flyers with galley times at each booth for the whole of BEA? Just trying to plan out my schedule as much as possible! :)

Some of the publishers will post their schedules ahead of time - like MacMillan and Sourcebooks that we already know, but most it is the day of. Some don't even have official schedules and they just get put out at random times. Again, it never hurts to ask if there's a book you REALLY want. Sometimes you'll get lucky and get the inside scoop or even the book itself. School Library Journal usually has a good article just before BEA with some more galley drop/signing info that will sometimes include times not listed elsewhere.

THANK YOU!

My daughter would seriously lose her crap if I were able to score a galley of the 10th Diary of a Wimpy Kid book.

She's totally my kid. :)

You are most welcome. :)

My cousin is already begging me for me to get it for her. So I understand Krista. Did you see the Scholastic galley for the illustrated HP and the sorcerer's stone?

it depends on the books, if it's a popular follow up they might ticket or line you up, if it's just a drop most times they literally have a bunch of books on the floor or on the tables and you grab them

I just saw the HP illustrated galley listed too! I wonder if it'll be the full galley or just a sample with the new cover, either way I want it... I want too many books this year though. I don't know how I'm going to fit them all in my room.

I want it too...regardless...because it's HP and it's special. I also want more books than I'll probably be able to take home with me...might have to look into shipping.

YEEEEEEES! I want to get that for her too. I think it would be the perfect introduction for her to the world of HP. She's turning 9 on June 5, so these would be great birthday gifts for her.

Did you all see that MCPG is saying there'll be galleys of Winter by Marissa Meyer? That's a mistake, right? I can't image they would have that there.


message 34: by Marcilia (new)

Marcilia | 111 comments @Krista
I did see that....not sure what the deal is.


message 35: by Jessica (new)

Jessica | Bookish Serendipity (bookishserendipity) | 30 comments @Krista

I heard someone suggest that maybe they're just samplers? I know they had galleys for Cress, but I had thought they wouldn't have them for Winter (or at least be super selective about who receives them).


message 36: by Rachael (new)

Rachael (rachaelkmac) Marissa Meyer said on twitter that there will be NO ARC's of Winter so it was either a mistake or it's a sampler!


message 37: by Rachael (new)

Rachael (rachaelkmac) Jessica wrote: "Must be a sampler if they're there. Or PW meant to put Fairest. Or it'll be something stupid like a post card with the cover image on it."

Yeah, Alexandra Bracken's Passenger was also on the PW list but she also said on twitter that unless there is some sort of miracle it won't be there, probably a sampler as well. It's kind of disappointing, so many people got their hopes up!

That's what many of us are all dying to find out for sure Brianna...because it would be AMAZING.


message 41: by Rachael (new)

Rachael (rachaelkmac) I agree that they probably won't have the copies and it'll be a sampler for Harry Potter, they had samplers at the library conference I went to here in Canada last weekend. I hate that they're putting down samplers as galleys though, I went through last years PW articles and I don't think anything that was listed was just samplers...

It might even be a poster or print of some of the artwork. I actually think that would be pretty cool, but those are so difficult to keep from getting smushed unless they give you a tube.

I wonder if they are charging this year for Book Con books?? I didn't see it but apparently some of the publishing houses were charging for their books during the event.

I tweeted at Scholastic and this was their response.

This book will be available globally on 10-6-15, with plans to publish the other illustrated HP titles, one per year. Please visit http://bit.ly/1Ig5Dk8 for more information.

So very noncommittal one way or the other.
