E-ARC means Electronic Advanced Reader Copy. This is the early version of the manuscript that goes out to reviewers. My publishers make them available to the public early for those of you who just don’t want to wait. (the actual book comes out in February)
People always ask if there are many changes between the ARCs and the final copy. Sometimes yes, but with my manuscripts, no. My manuscripts tend to be pretty clean. I’ve never had a major change between the ARC and the final.
This is a really fun book, and I’m proud of how it turned out. John Brown is a great writer and working with him was a blast.
