It will clearly state "Advanced Reader Copy" or something like that on the cover, correct? Books that come from mail order book clubs do not sell ARCs do they?

Yes, your are right, most ARCs say Advance Reader Copy somewhere on the cover. I have gotten a few that say it on the inside on the title page. Book Clubs do not sell ARCs but they may have different ISBNs. Make sure when posting them that the ISBN is not for the paperback version. If it is it needs to be posted as if without and ISBN.

ARCs are not sold by anyone. They are given away by the book companies.
