Rerelease – September 2013
Lake Union Publishing
266 pages

See it on Amazon US.

Description:

Since he was disfigured in a fire sixteen years ago, recluse Louis Malone has remained hidden from the prying eyes of his neighbors in the small town of Waverly.

Across town, Iris Shula, a lonely and unlovely nurse, knows at thirty-seven it is unlikely that her Prince Charming will ever appear. But Iris is about to learn how wrong she is.

When Louis accidentally falls out of his second-story window, these two kindred souls are brought together. What unfolds is a most unlikely love story. One that will make you laugh and that will break—and remake—your heart.

I just started it and so far it’s quite interesting. Very vivid writing.

Review to come.

How to Get ARCs (Advance Reading Copies) of Books

#amreading

I noticed a few search engine hits on this blog asking “how do I get ARCs?”

Well – this question isn’t answered quickly…. but here is my attempt.

If you are an everyday reader (like me 🙂 ) – the best way to eventually obtain review copies is to become an active reader and reviewer. Write many thoughtful reviews and post them on places like: blogs, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, Shelfari, Library Thing, etc. It doesn’t hurt to have a Twitter or Facebook account where you post reviews as well. Only some of these outlets are needed… you won’t need to post on all of them.

After doing this for 3 to 6 months, you can register on sites like NetGalley and Edelweiss and request ARCS. That might seem like a long time – but it isn’t. If you are an avid reader, you will continue this hobby for the rest of your life. Go for it!

Blogging takes time and persistence – a great idea is to find a few friends and start a group blog. Or ask to become a guest reviewer on an established blog.

Why is this reviewing activity necessary?

Publishers and authors distribute ARCs in order to get exposure.

That is key to remember.

They need people who have a ‘reach’ reading and talking about their books.

Make sense?

That is my quick answer.

NetGalley has offered and detailed list titled “How to Improve Your Chances for Approval.”

*** I suggest you read that. ***

Perhaps you just want free books  I’m not judging.

Other ways to obtain review copies – or free books:

1. Follow authors on Twitter or Facebook and watch for giveaways.

2. Many book bloggers host frequent giveaways. Find the bloggers who post on genres you like, bookmark their page and visit often.

3. Head over to Goodreads and enter their First Reads contests. Many of these titles are ARCs.

4. Have you tried the Cloud library app on you’re reader? Holy crap they carry a lot of books. Check out the instructions on your device on how to download. If you have an iPhone – easy!!  http://amzn.to/29kLrnB

Thanks for stopping!
