Book Dummy Sizing



  • I have a critique coming up at SCBWI fall conference and would like to know if anyone here has insight as to the size a book dummy should be. I have heard differing opinions. Some say the size of the finished book, others say it can be smaller and the presentation and polish matter more. Anyone with experience or suggestions? Thanks!



  • The dummy size doesn't matter too much. But I would recommend 8x10. That size is good for showing off the work and is a standard in the publishing industry.



  • Thank you!!
