Today marked a major milestone in my life as a writer: the Advanced Reader Copies (ARCs) of my debut novel arrived in the mail.
No matter how long it’s been since you actually submitted the final manuscript, no matter how mired you may be in the minutia of publicity and booking a book tour, there are few experiences that can compare to holding your first published book in your hot little hands at last.
Of course, that new-book high of mine was harshed just a bit when I discovered that my name had been misspelled on the copyright page and headers–but, hey, that’s why they say: ADVANCE READER COPY–UNCORRECTED PROOF!
Proof nonetheless, is it not? 😉
If you or someone you know would be interested in reviewing the novel for a print or online publication, feel free to drop me a line.
If you’re not a book reviewer but would still like to get your hands on one of these fine-looking ARCs, I’m launching a Goodreads giveaway for two copies starting soon. More info on Friday!
