Picked up a book today and noticed there's a little circle thing which says "Introduction Copy".  Exactly what is that?  I know what an ARC is, but not intro copy.  Thanks.  Pat

I found this discussion.


If it matches what they are saying in the thread, it sounds postable.

Patty - it is a Worldwide mystery.  Don't think they'd offer this to teachers. It is a Harlequin trademark, so it appears postable.  Just had never seen 'Intro Copy' on a cover before.  Thanks for the info.  Pat

I'd do a little looking around on the book to make sure that it doesn't look like it was printed before the release date and maybe check some Harlequin sites to see if they explain what it is. The wording sounds like it is most likely a Complimentary book (which is postable) rather than and Advanced (which isn't).
