Last weekend, a very exciting milestone occurred: my Advance Reading Copies arrived! If you subscribe to my newsletter (link to do so here!), my February issue included a preview of my unboxing video. I’m so excited to share the completed video here now!
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Advance Reading Copies, these are not final copies of my books (those will arrive in August). These copies are for the purpose of promoting the book in advance of the Aug. 24 release–for booksellers, reviewers, librarians, and other influencers to read the book early so readers will be clamoring for it and stores, schools, and libraries will stock it!
If that’s you, great!! You can request ARCs from the Bloomsbury YA Publicity Department at TeensUSA@bloomsbury.com, or the book is also up on Edelweiss for request as well. Please do not ask me directly for an ARC, but do watch out for future giveaways!
I am so thrilled with this gorgeous book and want to once again thank cover artist Rosemary Valero-O’Connell and designer Danielle Ceccolini, as well as interior designer Jeanette Levy. Also my editor Allison Moore and agent Elizabeth Bewley for continually championing YOUR LIFE HAS BEEN DELAYED. I wouldn’t be at this moment of holding this early version of the book in my hands without everyone who has contributed to it. I’m just stunned by it.
I hope you are as anxious to get your hands on the final as I am!
