I’m rebuilding my ARC list, so if you’re interested, please leave a comment on this post, or send me an email at kennywright.writer (at) gmail dot com. I’m accepting the first ten or so interested parties.
Edit and update: Wow, I’m overwhelmed by the response! And I haven’t even posted this anywhere on social media. Thank you all so much for volunteering to be advanced reviewer and readers. For the time being, I’m going to stop taking more volunteers on so that someone will buy it on release day. Thanks again, all!
Read on for the frequently asked Qs.
What does being on the advanced review copy (ARC) list mean?
You get a copy of my upcoming book (in this case, Separated, With Benefits) before it’s released to the public with the express purpose of writing a fair review of the book. Then, when the book is released, you post that review on Amazon. I’m not looking to buy five-star ratings—I think the material speaks for itself—just honest reviews so that I’ve got something to start with on release day.
Does this mean you get a free copy of the book?
Technically, yes. But in order for the reviews to have weight and have the “verified” tag next to the review, I’d appreciate that you still purchase it. Also, the ARC is a PDF, so if you want to get it on your Kindle (or paperback), then purchasing it is the way to go.
How much earlier is the ARC vs. the release copy?
Usually about a week. I try to give readers enough time to read it and process it.
Is the ARC any different than the release copy?
It’s mostly the same. There may be a few typos that I clean up between the ARC and the final version, but nothing major will change.
How do you get onto the list?
Just send me an email (kennywright.writer (at) gmail dot com), send me a PM on Twitter or message on Facebook, or leave a comment here. I’ll email you back and let you know that you’ve been added. Oh, and please include your email address, otherwise I will not be able to add you.
