First off, Laura Pauling has a great post today about self promotion. Go read it! One of Laura's tips for self promotion is to promote others! Which fit in nicely with what I wanted to blog about today.
The lovely Anna Staniszewski asked me to be a part of a tour her ARC would be taking (ARC = Advanced Reading Copy). I've seen ARCs, I've even read a few. But I haven't been part of an official ARC blogging tour. So THANK YOU Anna for including me. MY VERY UNFAIRY TALE LIFE will be available on November 1 from Sourcebooks Jabberwocky.
The ARC arrived yesterday.
Maybe I'll take my new friend to the library today. Or maybe to the beach. Not sure yet. I love Anna's marketing approach--you see she only has a couple of ARCs to spare. So several of us are reading it, and then mailing it along to the next person on the list. She's given us mailing envelopes with postage paid. Each of us is writing a note inside the front or back cover. That ARC is going to make a great prize for someone some time in the fall. :)
Coincidentally, the person on the list after me is none other than Laura Pauling. Isn't the universe delightful?
Hope you all have a wonderful day!
