Update: we received way too many entries, almost 400. Sorry, guys, but there are only 5-6 spots.
Email from Anne,
Just wanted to give you a heads up that we are expecting first pass page proofs of MAGIC SHIFTS in on Friday. We’ll send them to you as soon as we receive.
Oy. On the bright side, I will have e-ARCs ready. 🙂 The ARCs are almost books; it’s a PDF file very close to what will be actually printed. The plot is set, the narrative is written and only minor changes can be made. The ARCs must be checked for weird grammar, printer errors, and most severe inconsistencies. So if you got a keen eye for detail and you want a shot at proofreading the ARC, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the words ARC Magic Shifts in the title. Please say a couple of words about yourself, whether or not you beta read for us before, and we will pick 5-6 people. You get to read the book 3 months early and I get to not look at it anymore. Because I can’t. I hate it so much.
The house is a wreck. But the room is pink and white. Score. Next on the agenda is trying to respond to at least some of the email and putting together furniture.
