What is ARC? An Advance Review Copy, or advance reader copy, is a complete book sent to potential reviewers before publication. The book is being given away for free to an exclusive group of interested readers in the hope that their honest reviews will generate even further interest in the book ahead of its release (or even after publication – read how below).
If you are reading this real-time post (always up-to-date despite just the Book 1 cover), you’ve been offered an exclusive opportunity to sign up and get an ARC of the next book in the Tale of Tales fantasy series. If you apply, you have a strong chance of receiving this eBook as a gift. And as the cover image hints, there is also a chance, albeit less, of getting ALL the eBooks in the series, starting from Book 1, if you ask. All that is asked in return is that you read the book(s) and post a review, even a short one. If you wish to get involved, sign up HERE.*
* (If you want to start reading from Book 1, enter the number 1 in the field “ANOTHER PROFILE -OR- RELEVANT LINK (OPTIONAL)”. And if you want to continue reading from a later book, e.g. Book 2, you need to enter the book number, e.g. 2, in the mentioned field, AND also fill in the field above, “YOUR AMAZON -OR- GOODREADS PROFILE (OPTIONAL)”, with a link to your previous book review. This basically means that you can read the entire series for free if you write a review for each book before applying for the next one.)
* Tale of Tales is a High/Epic Fantasy saga based on the motifs of ancient myths, legends, and forgotten fairytales * Here is a synopsis (and sample book chapters) to help you gauge your interest:
Senka is no hero, but you never know what is coming for you. And if that burns down your house and family, while you are left blinded by your house’s guardian snake, the outlook becomes grim. So Senka clings to her dog’s back to survive, unaware of the fateful prophecy and the great changes to come. But when a wandering warrior becomes her protector and mysterious strangers join their hounded party through a series of seemingly chance encounters, they all begin to discover that all is not as it seems.
What is pursuing her? And why? Can the strange characters gathering around her on her desperate quest save her from doom? Are they mere puppets of a young, beguiling witch guided by her own hidden motives, or are forgotten shadows rising again from the immeasurable depths of time? A tale of folk fairytales and myths, of swords and sorcery and mythical beings – a unique story of dark times and unsung heroes who may light your way.
