Vanguard of Justice is coming out in just a few short weeks (on March 14th, 2023), but you can read my epic mythological pirate fantasy early if you join the Vanguard of Justice ARC Book Club!
How does it work?
1.) Sign up for the book club below. This will subscribe you to the book club e-mail list.
2.) Grab your weekly excerpts from Bookfunnel (will arrive at your inbox once a week on Sundays, Central Time)
3.) READ the excerpt before the following Saturday
4.) Attend the weekly live chats to talk about the excerpt OR complete the weekly surveys about the excerpt.
1.) There is NOT a free full-length book file; you'll receive the book in chunks as long as you remain an active participant*
2.) There is NO REVIEW REQUIRED. If you do choose to leave an honest review after completing the book, that is appreciated and helpful, but none are required "in exchange" for a free copy.
3.) This is NOT the "final" version of the book. Your feedback can help me adjust and correct any last-minute non-editing oversights before the book goes live. This means there is a high chance that there will be some 'tweaks' to the version the public receives. (AKA - please don't sign up for this if an occasional typo will drive you batty - this is the Advance Reader Copy)
Because every book in The Lords' Gambit Series follows a different main character with an entirely new storyline within the same world, there is no requirement or need to have read volumes one and two before picking up Vanguard of Justice.
If you are a reader who likes to know the setup of the world first, you can grab Oracle of Life (Volume One) between now and February 27th 2023 for only 99C (US) here, and Monk of Death (Volume Two) for $2.99 (US) here.
**UPDATED 3/5/2023: The book club sign-ups have now closed. To be one of the first people to hear about future ARC teams and book events, sign up for my newsletter here.**
Vanguard of Justice is a DARK epic fantasy written with readers ages 18+ in mind. Some scenes may be considered disturbing by some readers. Reader discretion is advised.
ARC book club sign-ups for Vanguard of Justice will close at 11:59pm Central Time on Saturday, February 25th 2023, and are open to anyone age 18 or older in any country that allows downloads from Bookfunnel's website.
Everyone who signs up will be e-mailed the first excerpt on Sunday, February 26th, 2023 (Central Time), with subsequent excerpts to be sent on March 5th and March 12th 2023.
Excerpts will be sent in PDF FORM ONLY (which will be watermarked and coded with your specific ID) directly from Bookfunnel; NOT from me personally. These files are NOT meant to be read on mobile, and will need to be downloaded to an actual computer (laptop/desktop) to pull up correctly. If you cannot download PDFs (or open PDFs) this may not be the ARC team for you this go-round.
Weekly book club calls will take place on Saturdays at 11:30AM Central time via Dialpad (meeting invites will be sent out), a web-based conferencing video software similar to Zoom, but with higher encryption/security than Zoom.. During these calls, I will ask for your feedback on certain aspects of the plot/characters and flow.
If you cannot attend the calls (which is totally fine), you have the option to instead complete the survey sent to you AFTER the call is completed. Only participants who missed the call will receive the survey. The surveys are due by 11:59pm Central time the same day they are sent. Anyone who has not completed the survey before the deadline AND missed the call will be removed from the group.
*Active Participant = A member of the book club who is a.) downloading their files from Bookfunnel (not just 'viewing'), as is tracked using the code imbedded in your file, and b.) is either attending the weekly book club calls OR is taking the weekly book club surveys.
NO PURCHASE IS NECESSARY to participate in any way, shape, or form, NOR is any review expected or required in exchange. Your participation in this book club is entirely optional, and will not be impacted by whether or not you have purchased/reviewed my prior works.
