An Early Review, A Signing, and A Galley Proof to Work On

Advanced Review Copies (ARCs) of my November release, A Basket of Trouble, the third book in my Claire Hanover gift basket designer series, are apparently going out to reviewers, because one reviewer has already published her 5-star review of the book! You can read Lynn Farris's review in her Mystery Books Examiner on-line column HERE. I'm thrilled with what she had to say about A Basket of Trouble, especially, "This aspect of the book makes it a great option for book clubs to consider"!

As for my RM Outdoor Adventures series, I finished up my Colorado book signings for the newly-released third book in it, Fatal Descent, with a signing at the Broadway Book Mall in Denver this past Sunday. I teamed up with fellow Colorado mystery author Bonnie Biafore, and you can see us both in the photo below.

And lastly, I just received the galley proofs for A Basket of Trouble, so I will be hard at work over the next couple of weeks, picking through it for any errors. Wish me luck!

How does one become an Advance Reader, Beth? Thanks.

Hi Sarah,
Midnight Ink sends paper ARCs to a very select few review publications (like Publishers Weekly and Library Journal). They also make electronic copies available via the NetGalley system to reviewers who qualify. I don't know what the exact qualification are, but I think they relate to where the reviewers post their reviews and how many potential readers might see those posts. If you have a review blog and would like to see if you can get a NetGalley copy of A BASKET OF TROUBLE, email me at beth07 AT and I will send on your contact info to my publicist at Midnight Ink.

Hi Cozy in Texas,
Thanks for stopping by!
