I love receiving emails from my amazing editor, Jude Glad. I tell myself every email I get from her is another step toward publication of one of my projects. Yesterday I received one of the best kinds of emails–my ARC (Advance Review Copy) of THE CHRISTMAS ANGEL. A short story featuring an entirely different cast of characters from my North Star series, Angel will be published in electronic format on December 13, 2013.
The ARC serves two purposes. First, it gives me a chance to read the story and check one final time for little things like missing commas and letter transpositions. Second, it gives me a chance to contact book bloggers and reviewers to request reviews before the story comes out. Having a review or two in my pocket before publication is a GREAT way to get the word out. And I’m very excited about this project since it so different from my other works.
So, I guess its time to take a close look at THE CHRISTMAS ANGEL to make sure it’s letter-perfect and then see if I can get a reviewer or two to give it a read. Wish me luck. Have a great weekend everyone!
