Seriously, though, didn’t you JUST have Advanced Review Copy sign-ups? It sure feels like it! It was back in April when I sent my last one out, but when you do a rapid-release, you need to do everything rapidly.
Now, I realize, of course, that my last post was called Why Bother? A Constant Writer Battle (about the struggles of this very series) However, that doesn’t change the fact that the book still needs eyeballs on it in advance of release day: Aug. 9, 2022.
What exactly does an ARC reader do? Excellent question, glad you asked. ARC readers are given a digital copy of my soon-to-be-released book to read in advance of anyone else, in exchange for their honest feedback/review of said book. It’s a gamble for the reader and a gamble for the writer. However, in this current market, reviews are a good way to get algorithms to take notice of a new title. Hence, why authors rely so heavily on them. They are a necessary evil.
My ARC copies have been to the editor, but, as we all know, typos happen. So, I do lean on my ARC readers to give me a heads up if they notice something is off or the formatting is janky. They are the last set of eyes on the manuscript before it goes out into the wild.
If you have happened to already read Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 and are itching to either get your hands on an early copy or are willing to help an indie author out, then you can sign up to be on the team here.
Also, this is the last week to sign up to win the two paperbacks above in this giveaway!
That’s all for now! I have a paperback to format. Who knew a writer’s life was so glamourous?
