There are times when I know I'm just asking for trouble, but I'll admit that I'm at a loss as to how I should proceed.
So, maybe it's just best if I layout the situation and let my fabulous readers give me a hand with this.
As I mentioned earlier this month, my publisher is not doing regular, formal Advanced Reader Copies (ARC) for Dayhunter (scheduled for release on April 28). However, they have created a more informal version of the book in the form of a bound printout. I have received just a handful of copies and I would like to send these out to reviewers. I have already contacted a couple reviewers and they have agreed to look at the book ahead of its release.
I am searching for at least 2 more reviewers for Dayhunter.
If you would like to throw your name in the hat for one of the advanced copies of Dayhunter, please keep in mind that I would like for the review to be posted as close to the release date of Dayhunter (which is on April 28). The goal here is to get a buzz going about the book ahead of its release.
I would also prefer it that you have already read Nightwalker. While Dayhunter can be read as a stand-alone novel, I think you would get a fuller experience if you've read the first book in the series.
To throw your name in the hat, please send me an email at:
jocelynnDOTdrakeATgmailDOTcom (replace the DOT and AT with matching symbols)
I need your name, mailing address, a quick note of your interest in reviewing the book, and a link to your website and/or blog. I will be making my choices over the weekend.
I'll admit that I'm not 100% sure of the criteria I will use to choose the reviewers. It will most likely be based on website appearance, standing in the reviewing/Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Fantasy community, and word of mouth from other authors. I will do my best to be as fair as possible. If there is a rush of interest, I will contact my publisher and see if I can get a couple more copies, but I can't make any promises.
Thanks for your help in this matter!
