Advanced Reader Copies? posted 21 August 2005 in Author Q & AAdvanced Reader Copies? by superkeer, Candidate

I work at a Barnes & Noble in south Texas and noticed that our inventory system finally has an entry for TTT for release in January (it's too bad it'll miss the Christmas rush). I'm curious if your publisher will be sending out advanced reader copies of the book? view post

Yep. I'd be happy to favorably review the book on my site if I had an ARC... or if I had a site... or if I reviewed books. So, uh, how 'bout it? view post

As for the Canadian ARC's, they only give me so many copies, all of which are already spoken for I'm afraid. I'm certainly willing to ask my publicist to send out more, but I would need something to rationalize the request, like a link to a review site or the like. I'm my Canadian publisher isn't going to be very interested in sending galleys to Texas! And I don't think my American publisher even prints any up whatsoever (they're a small outfit with (thank God) big distribution. So I'm afraid you're out of luck, superkeer - sorry man. Sylvanus, if you PM me I might be able to work something out. view post

Hrmm....soo...because I'm curiouser and curiouser now <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) -->

Have the ARCs arrived yet? Because you know I'm starting to really, really want to get my copy! Any ETA for them, Scott? view post

My personal copies have arrived, but I'm still waiting on the box. Truth be told, I'm actually dismayed with them, so much so that I'll probably bury the bulk of them in a hole in the back yard, or raffle them off in a contest a few months from now. A typsetting error transformed all the sentence-ending em-dashes and a good number of the exclamation marks into question marks - which means that all the moments of dramatic confrontation, where people start shouting and cutting each other off, are marred with apparently unintelligible questions.

Bums me out. I was really looking forward to shipping them out to reviewers and perhaps building a groundswell of buzz on the web. view post

I know...but hey, I can overlook that and still give a detailed thematic review of the book without spoiling the plot, right? <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) -->

*wonders if that'll help get the ARC here quicker* <!-- s:P --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- s:P --> view post

I always wondered how people got ARCs. Can't wait for the next book. view post


Advanced Reader Copies? posted 21 October 2005 in Author Q &amp; AAdvanced Reader Copies? by Scilvenas, Auditor

Just kiddin' about the ARC, Scott, but my enthusiasm is genuine. I'd be all about getting my hands on a misprint edition, though. view post


Advanced Reader Copies? posted 21 October 2005 in Author Q &amp; AAdvanced Reader Copies? by superkeer, Candidate

Wow, hey, thanks for responding, Scott. No sweat... was really just the over-zealous desire to get my hands on the third book as soon as possible that drove my inquiry.

I'll just keep pushing the two books you have out now -- they're actually not doing too badly down here in Texas. Convinced a co-worker of mine to read The Darkness That Comes Before and now he's salivating on the sales floor just waiting for TWP to arrive in paperback.

Another question if you get back to this thread: Any plans for, say, an illustrated work? I'd be surprised to find out that you haven't had at least a few significant offers from people wanting to paint some of the visuals in your story. view post

You could wait after TTT has been published and sell these on eBay as rarities and collectible !

"For true fan only !
Rare misprinted ARC of The Thousandfold Thought by R. Scott Bakker.
Numbered and autographed by the author himself!
Don't miss this opportunity! Buy one today !"


Seriously, does this means that you won't have ARC for TTT or that you will get a corrected bunch later? view post


Advanced Reader Copies? posted 24 October 2005 in Author Q &amp; AAdvanced Reader Copies? by Cu'jara Cinmoi, Author of Prince of Nothing

I've sent two out to test the waters (and nothing has arrived since). If both the reviewers share my misgivings then I'll probably cook up some way to give the rest away, and wait for the final edition before sending any out to other e-reviewers. view post
