What is an ARC?

What is an ARC? Alex R Crawford’s initials? Well, yes. However, in this case ARC refers to Advance Review Copy. It is an opportunity to read Alex’s books before they are published. In return, you will provide an honest and helpful review to help other readers decide if they would like the book.

There are a limited number of ARC’s available for each book, so signing up does not guarantee you will receive a copy of every book. The format of the ARC is delivered as an ebook through a link sent through Bookfunnel.

Although Alex’s books are available through your favorite online bookstore, please be prepared to leave a review on Amazon. In addition, you can leave a review at multiple bookstores, social media, blogs, and GoodReads, to name a few.

If you are selected to join Alex’s ARC team, you will receive additional emails including:

  • Introductory email
  • Link to receive ebook Advance Review Copy sent through Bookfunnel
  • Links to online retailers or review sites
  • Reminder and follow-up emails

Note: Only active email subscribers are eligible to receive ARCs. If you are not signed up, head on over to the newsletter sign-up page.

Alex will send out ARCs with as much advance as possible. If you are unable to read or review a book because of a scheduling conflict, please let Alex know when you receive the invitation to review.
