Free mini eARC for #WOTF31! Who wants one?

Hi, all!

In the next day or so, I will have a mini eARC for volume 31 of Writers of the Future to distribute to anyone who is willing to leave an honest review on launch day (or thereabouts).

Here are the deets:

Writers of the Future, Vol. 31
  • The mini eARC (PDF) will only have three or four of the stories in it. If you want to read them all, look for the mini eARCs being offered by some of my co-authors. Gotta catch ’em all!
  • The launch is scheduled for May the 4th. May the Fourth be with you!  How awesome is that?
  • In your review, it’s fine to mention that you haven’t read all of the stories, and please do mention that you received a free sample copy.
  • If you want one, please say so in the comments. Once I’ve got the file, I’ll send it to the email address used for your comment. (In other words, don’t post your email in the comment itself. I can see it in the admin interface.)
  • If I get a lot of requests, please give me a day or two to get back to you.
  • If you buy the paper copy and we ever meet at a con or workshop (*ahem* Sasquan), I will be happy to sign it for you!
Oh, and here’s a plug for my story, POSEIDON’S EYES.
In a sleepy California beach town, spirits magnify both the good and the evil in human hearts.

Many thanks!


ETA: I’ve also got two 99 cent sales for you!  Mike Resnick’s Best of Galaxy’s Edge has 25 short stories in it, including my Hugo nominee, and Writers of the Future, Volume 29 (not the current volume) is also on sale. Grab them fast because I don’t know how long the sales will last.

Reminder: Comments are moderated, and may not appear in a timely fashion if I’m busy writing or away from my computer.

  1. I’d be interested, but it depends on the format. I can do Kindle (mobi) and .pdf, but other formats would be problematic.

    1. I saw this on another website. I review Galleys for Amazon vine and would love to read these stories.

  2. I would LOVE an eARC of these stories. I am a voracious reader and I am always looking for new authors. I will pick up the entire volume at my earliest opportunity, but until then I can give an honest review of the offered stories.
    Thank you so much for this opportunity!

  3. I would like a copy, it might take me a few days to write a review. The few I have done tend to be short.

  4. I’d love a copy and would be happy to pen a review.

    Wait, what the hell are you doing? Your Nook is already full of stuff and the Hugo voter packets will be out soon…are you out of your mind??

    Don’t listen to that fellow. All negativity. Can’t have too much good SFF material on hand.

  5. I would love to get a copy, Kary, and I will post a review, even tho I have two book clubs coming up…

  6. Hi Kary,

    Loved “Flight of the Kikayon’ and I’ll be getting to ‘Totaled’ shortly. I read your interview with Brad at his site and accidentally purchased WOTF-29 and BOGE2013-14 so I’ll catch WOTF-31 later. I think a Hugo and Campbell may be in the future. Hugs and Prayers.

  7. Hi Kary,

    ‘Totaled’ was so good I wanted to cry. I’ll have to read it again (and again and again …). The ARC was nice, thank you. I’ll buy the complete issue soon. I thought ‘Half Past’ and ‘Poseidon’s Eyes’ were both in the 4-5 star range while ‘Purposes Made …’ would be a 3 star. Keep up the good work.

    1. Hi, Erin,

      I sent yours out this past Monday. Please let me know if you didn’t get it. The file was large. 🙂
