It's Time For Me To Do Something About This

A Girl, a Boy, and a Monster Cat will be coming out in June, so I guess it's time for me to distribute some of the arcs I received from my publisher. I made a serious effort to promote Happy Kid!, which did finally get some results. But that was just last year, and I'm having a little trouble getting pumped up to promote again so soon. I just realized I haven't even created a Girl/Boy page at my website.

Last year I approached bloggers about reviewing Happy Kid!. This year, however, I feel somewhat awkward about doing that because I sort of know a lot of the bloggers now. I don't want to make anyone feel they have to say, "Yes, I'll review the book" leading them to then feel uncomfortable if they need to give the book a mixed or worse review. (See Roger Sutton's post on this very situation in reviewing children's books.)

So, I will just say, I have a limited number of arcs. If anyone is interested in receiving a copy for a possible review, go ahead and contact me. (You can do so via e-mail by way of my website, if you'd like some privacy.)

And let the chips fly where they may!

I'd love one, also! And it's funny, the awkwardness does go both ways. If I "know" an author online and they have a new book coming out, I feel hesitant to ask for an ARC. It feels almost rude; like asking a doctor for free medical advice.

Yes please Gail - I don't read much non-fantasy, but I loved Happy Kid! (and must return Jen's copy to her some time !)...

Okay, folks, your arcs are reserved. Send me an address, and I'll get them out to you.

I'll take a copy Gail, if you still have some.

My friends like to play it and buy shaiya gold. If you have money to buy shaiya money, you will find it is very useful. Earning cheap shaiya gold is not so hard. Try your best and then you can get it. I buy shaiya gold, just because I like it. So simple the shaiya online gold is.
