I have ARCs! I have ARCs! I have ARCs!

These are three copies of the ARCs for Winds that came in the mail today. The cover design is not final, but I'm glad they got the cover art in time to get it onto the ARCs. Looks so much better than a generic black and white cover would. It also means that everyone else (other authors and reviewers) should be getting them any day now. How exciting! (Not to mention a bit terrifying!)

      Thanks, Adam. I have yet to see the cover design, but it should be coming very soon. I’ll be sure to post a copy when it arrives.

    How did I just see this?  (I think your posts have stopped showing up on Goodreads.)  HOORAY!  Does it feel real yet? :)

      Hey Shveta! Yes, it’s starting to feel real now. With the cover art done and the arcs, it’s pretty physical at this point. Substantial. And the ARCs are now out to authors and reviewers for potential blurbs, which is a big, scary step. Now it’s the home stretch until release day. Exciting!
