ARC Signup

Use the form below to receive Advanced Review Copies (ARCs) of upcoming books.

Process

After signing up, you’ll receive a series of emails:

  1. Initial Email
    – If you signed up for a paperback, notice of shipment.
    – If you signed up for an ebook, an email with the text attached.
  2. Reminder
    – 4-6 weeks later, you’ll be reminded that the book’s release date is approaching. That would be a good time to start reading if you haven’t already.
  3. Release Day
    – Notice that the book has launched, and a request to submit honest reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, and any additional platforms you choose.
  4. Final Request
    – 1-2 weeks after release, if you haven’t yet reviewed the book, you’ll receive a final request to do so.

Rules

In order to receive a paperback, you must live in the United States. Readers from elsewhere in the world are welcome to request ebooks.

Reviews should be honest. Most sites use a scale of 1-5 stars:

  • ★ (Loved it)
  • ★★★★     (Liked it)
  • ★★★         (It was fine)
  • ★★             (Disliked it)
  • ★                 (Hated it)

Vote the way you actually feel.

Important: You are under no obligation to review any book. However, those who are consistently unresponsive may be removed from the ARC list.

Review Format

Make sure your review has a headline and at least 20 words of review text.

Please include one of the following lines somewhere in your review (typically at the bottom):

  • “I received an ARC for an objective review.”
  • “This review was based on a complimentary pre-release copy.”
  • “I received a copy of this book from the publisher and am reviewing it voluntarily.”

Example Reviews

I Hated Everything About This

Every word of this book felt like a personal attack. I received an ARC for an objective review, and the publisher probably regrets that now. 

I Didn’t Know Books Could Be This Good

I received a copy of this book from the publisher and am reviewing it voluntarily.

When I opened this book, a chorus of angels emerged and sang to me. From that moment on, I was hooked.
