ARC?

09 December 2009

Hi everyone! I have a question!
How do I receive ARC books? Do I qualify as a reviewer? How do I contact publishers and authors? ARC was brought to my attention from other lovely book blogs, and I was just curious!

-Thanks

  1. There are a lot of publishing companies that have programs where you can get ARCs... I used to review for HarperCollins until their program went on hiatus.

    Yes, you do qualify as a reviewer. :) I've never asked an author or publisher for a book, although you can try. You would probably have to look up their email, though.

    Mostly, publishers and authors send me emails about reviewing ARCs. It seems to just be a matter of getting connected.

  2. Hi, The Story Siren did a great post all about ARCs. Here is the link: http://www.thestorysiren.com/2009/11/advance-readers-copies-what-you-need-to.html

    The best advice I can give is to write great honest reviews and be a frequent commentator on your favourite blogs. This will help you get followers as eventually those bloggers will check yor blog (like me now) and if you are reviewing books of interest to them then they will follow you.

    Sometimes it is nice to read reviews of books that are already in the shops because then if you like the sound of the book, you can buy it straight away. You can review any book you pick up from the library or a second hand book store. It doesn't have to be an ARC.

    Hope this answers your question. The Story Siren explains this so much better tha I ever could in her post.
