So, about this “news” I claim to have…
I received an email today from my awesome publisher telling me THEY HAVE SET A RELEASE DATE FOR MY BOOK! This means I have a concrete date in which my book baby will be in my hands and ready to share with the world.
For some odd reason, the release date for things like DVDs, albums and books happen on Tuesdays. It is an industry standard. But let’s not let that ruin the fun. We have plenty of time to makes plans, request for vacation, and find a babysitter. It is going to be EPIC and I want you all to come celebrate with me!!
Are you ready?!?! Do you want to know so bad?!?!
APPARENT POWER WILL BE FOR AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC ON DECEMBER 11TH 2018!!!!!!!! Just in time for Christmas.
This will also serve as the most amazing birthday I have ever had in my life! Look for an invitation next summer.
CAN’T WAIT THAT LONG?
ARCs will be available to a handful of people on September 11th, 2018.
What exactly is an ARC?
ARC stands for “Advanced Reader Copy.” These are uncorrected proofs of finished, edited novels. They may contain spelling or typographical errors, and may not have a final cover or interior formatting. They are not meant for widespread distribution, and are sent to reviewers in advance of the publication date. At this time, all of my ARCs are distributed in ebook format. For the best reading experience, I recommend that you use an e-reader, but you can also read the ARCs on smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktop computers. ARCs are typically distributed 1-3 months prior to the book’s release date. You would have the period between when the ARC is sent to you and the book’s release date to read the book and write an honest review. You’ll be sent an email invitation for the release. This will remind you of the book’s genre, length, description, and other details. Like any other book, asking yourself questions like:
- Does this sound like a title I would enjoy?
- Do I have time to read the book and write a review prior to the specified release date?
If the answer to either of those questions is “No,” you should probably pass on an ARC.
If you are interested in giving an honest review of Apparent Power before it is released to the public, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send your information to my publisher.
Please include the following:

Where do you typically leave book reviews?
If you post reviews to your personal blog or website, what is your URL?
If you are unfamiliar with my book, imagine if Dean Koontz wrote Divergent for adults, only the mom saves the world. THAT is Apparent Power.
An apocalyptic disaster awakens a dormant gene in a quarter of the world’s population. With an even rarer gene, the life VALERIE RUSSELL has turned into a race against time.
Valerie’s genetics are essential in a government plot for domination: morphing into a worldwide totalitarian regime. Stranded in southern Colorado, a hundred miles from home—and from her two-year-old son—the young mother and emergency room nurse finds it within herself to trek the distance with the help of a questionable assembly of ex-military friends of the family. As she desperately seeks to avoid capture, she is also faced with a moral choice: risk failure by trying to save the masses from the rising government or run and preserve only the lives of her family.
As always, thank you all for joining me on this journey. Remember, all writers just want to be read. Merry Christmas to you all!
