My ARCs (advance reading copies) arrived last week! It is so exciting to see my words on real book pages 🙂 and a little weird — seeing the story in a book rather than on my printed manuscript pages feels almost like someone else wrote them. It is definitely an awesome experience and I can’t wait to hold the actual hardcover in my hands!
I will be having an arc giveaway soon — May 2- May 8th to be exact — coinciding with the YAmazing Race!
What is that you ask? The “YAmazing Race with MGnificent Prizes” is a blog hop/race beginning May 2nd. The starting line is The Apocalypsies website. There you will soon find (not up quite yet though) specific directions on how the race works. Basically readers will hop from author blog (or website ) to author blog, reading the book synopsis for that author’s 2012 debut title. At the end of each leg, readers will answer questions specific to the book descriptions they read — and those readers who answer correctly will be eligible to win tons of MGnificent prizes! For the YAmazing race, I am donating a Blind Spot notebook and Blind Spot bookmarks, but as I mentioned above, I will also be hosting a Blind Spot ARC giveaway for those who hop by my blog along the race. So stay tuned for more details!
How exciting Laura! Can’t wait to get my copy from your publisher.
Just read your interview in MichKids newsletter. I’m in awe! Getting an MFA while still being a mother, plus awarded, plus being an assistant. That’s truly amazing. Looking forward to reading your story, whether it’s an ARC, or the book.
Thanks Randy! Yes, it was not easy at times — but I think it was really worth it 🙂
