OK, this is where the scary stuff starts. THE TRUTH ABOUT ARCHIE AND PYE was uploaded to NetGalley today. There’s still a week and a bit to go before the official publication next Thursday, but members of NetGalley are now able to request advance copies for reviewing.
I haven’t been through this process before, so I’m no idea what the NetGalley readership is like. I’m guessing they’re avid bookaholics who have pretty much read everything going, so OH GOD I’M SCARED. WHY DID I AGREE TO MY PUBLISHER DOING THIS?
I am not scared. I am not scared. It’s going to be fine. The one really good thing about it all is that it should at least ensure that Archie and Pye get a few more reader reviews than any of my last three books, and of course, we all know that the only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about. At the time of writing, the cover has got four thumbs up and no thumbs down, so at least that bit of it is looking promising. But as for the stuff inside, time alone will tell.
