|Galleys labelled for submission|
The job of the writer with an indie press is to reiterate this process, playing the roles of publisher, publicist and author as well. In other words, write that hyperbolic letter, no matter how much it may make you squirm, put it on the publisher's letterhead (with their permission of course), send it to the publisher for signature and mail it out with a set of galleys. Most important of all, do this three to four months before the book's release date. Often galleys will have marketing plans on the back, and some will have additional information on a title page. If yours don't, you can include this information in your cover letter.
