POP Quiz

This is just a fun activity with two purposes: 1) To familiarize yourself with industry terms; 2) To give away handmade bookmarks I was given for my birthday.

As always, following instructions is important. Post a comment that you have entered the quiz, send your answers via email to

Prizes (bookmarks) will be given to each person with 100% correct answers until I'm out of bookmarks. I'll need your mailing address and a real name in the email.


1) What is the difference between a galley and a proof book?

2) Define the following terms: Literary Agent; Acquisition Editor.

3) What is the difference between editing and rewrites?

4) Define a content editor and line editor's role?

5) My books have a theme. What is each theme? (Hint, look on my website if you don't have my books).

I'll post the answers when the entries cease.


  1. Interesting. I'm pretty sure I know the answer to 1, 3 and 5. I'd have an intelligent guess at 4 but no idea on 2. So if anyone wants to share a book mark with me, we can do it between us. Let me know through my blog at

  2. It is an 'open book' quiz. Google the ones you don't know.

  3. Looks like I'll have to post the answers. No one took the quiz. Sheesh. Was it that boring?
