The ARCs are here! The ARCs are here!
Yesterday I opened a box of Advanced Review Copies (ARCs) of my May, 09 release, To Hell in a Handbasket. I've attached the cover art for you to see. Even though this is my second published novel, I was still thrilled to hold a professionally printed version of my words in my hands, complete with a beautiful cover, bio, cover blurb, acknowledgments, etc. Now comes the hard part of deciding which lucky reviewers I will send those very few copies to. :-) My publisher sends out a couple dozen ARCs to the big-name reviewers and my copies go to local newspapers, ezines, alumni magazines, etc. Now comes the nail biting phase where I wait to see if I get any good reviews!
