After reading Karen's blog I know people are wondering what is an ARC and how do I get one?

An ARC is an Advance Readers Copy of a book and they are made to send out to reviewers and to booksellers before a book is released. An author usually gets a few copies to give out for contests and promotions. They are not for sale so there's nowhere you can go to buy one.

In the past people would be able to get ARCs by coveted authors on ebay because either reviewers or booksellers but remember, none of that money you spend on ebay goes to the author and the people selling them were given them. Karen's publishers will be monitoring ebay so that no copies of Faefever go on sale before hand.

So that means, the only way to get your hand on an ARC of Faefever will be to win one. I don't know how many of them we will have to give away and I don't know when we'll have them to give out but you know we'll let you know as soon as we can.

that was like bad french and bad german combined. the w's are pronounced as v's, true, but zee???? they can pronounce the just fine. in german it is a variation depending on the word after it and what form of the sentence it is in, but the main ones are Der, Die, and Das. All of which are "the" :p zee? ZEE? apryl??! :p


I had to flee, melissa, I was running late to class lol

Pyxie, I love the pictograms too. Some people don't like them but I love them. I was planning on having Lina do some for next month (I can't come up with them myself, LOL). I always try to guess before I post them. Usually I can get them but she says that's because I know how she thinks now, LOL.
