If you are interested in becoming an ARC Reader for my books, you have come to the right place! Below I will write a brief description of what an ARC does, doesn’t do, and specifics for my ARC readers. The request form to become an ARC Reader is at the bottom of this page.
Thank you for your interest!
What is an ARC?
ARC is an acronym for Advanced Reader Copy. You will receive a copy of my novel before it is published. If you are chosen to receive an ARC, you will receive the finished, edited novel to read before it is made available to the general public. In exchange for this opportunity, you will post a review of the novel when it is released.
In exchange for receiving an ARC, I’m going to expect a few things from you.
You must read the book
In order to leave a review of my work, you need to actually read it and preferably within a certain timeframe.
You must review the book
The entire purpose of the ARC is to generate reviews and buzz on release week. If you have requested and received an ARC copy of a novel and do not post a review on release week, you may be removed from future ARC lists. (There are, of course, exceptions. Everyone sometimes has unforeseen circumstances. If you, for any reason, cannot review the novel by the deadline, just let me know.)
ARC Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What format will the book be in?
A. At this time I am not sending paperback ARCs out but that could change in the future. I will be sending digital files which can come in the formats of: mobi (Kindle), epub (Nook/Kobo/iBooks) or PDF.
Q. Do I expect you to edit the novel?
A. No. ARC copies have already undergone editing. If you do notice typos that were missed during the editing process, you can of course let me know though. If you are interested in beta reading, which is more along the lines of spotting inconsistencies, spelling and grammar, etc, please go to this link.
Q. Where am I required to post the review?
A. Amazon is my number one choice followed by Goodreads. After that it’s entirely up to you. If you have a blog or website, that could be very useful to me as well.
Q. Can I post my review on my blog and/or social media?
A. Of course!
Q. When is the review due by?
A. I will have a release date in mind when I send you the ARC so my request is that it’s on release day or within 3 days afterwards.
Q. Do I need to fill out the form every time I am interested in a new ARC?
A. Nope! Once you’re signed up, you’re good to go and I will be communicating with you when I have a new book coming out.
Q. Where do I sign up?
A. I am glad you asked! Simply fill out the brief form below.
