Although I’ve had two novels previously published by a small indie, I’ve never had an ARC – Advanced Reader Copy, a mock copy of my novel to send to reviewers. The actual release date for With Full Malice is March 2012, but my new publisher creates ARCs several months in advance. I’ve been watching the publishing process, eager to see my first one.
Today I was told I should have my copy within the next thirty days! Hooray! I can’t wait.
I’ve been thinking about how to share it – after I’ve devoured it end to end, taken photos of hugging it and dancing around in glee. Perhaps holding a contest and giving it to the winner. Or doing something else to celebrate this exciting next step.
