MIKE WALLER'S ARC TEAM
Do you enjoy getting to read an author's books before anyone else?
If so, why not join my ARC Team.
WHAT IS AN ARC TEAM
ARC stands for Advanced Reader Copy, and it is a pre-publication version of a brand new book that is sent out to select readers by the author, before it is actually published (usually by several months).
The ARC reader will advise the author if they find errors in the text (remember you are reading an unpublished work) so these may be corrected before the final edition goes to print.
The ARC will generally choose to leave a fair review for the book once it is published. Reviews are always voluntary, and are not conditional upon the receipt of the book, however when joining an ARC team the reader does so with the expectation that they will leave a fair review wherever possible. If they find they cannot, they will generally advise the author why not. (ARC Teams are not for readers who just want a free book for nothing)
The ARC reader will also be a person who deeply enjoys the genre. A person who, for example, does not especially like Sci-Fi, would not want to ARC read for that genre.
If you like my books, love Sci-Fi, and would like to be an ARC reader for my team, I would love to have you on board.
ARC reading, and leaving reviews, are the best possible way you can give something back to an author who has chosen to give you a free copy of the book they have worked so hard to create.
