Getting to read upcoming books early is one of the major side benefits of my work with Apex. I get to read some of the best books before anyone else except the author, the author's beta readers, and the acquisitions editor. To get this privilege, I have to put in tons of hours scouring manuscripts, tweaking every little thing until it's perfect, emailing back and forth with authors, swearing at the computer for not formatting characters properly, running a fine-toothed comb through the ebook code, getting soundly thrashed at Scrabble against the boss, and sorting out when stuff hits the fan.
For you, though, it's much easier. Apex is instituting the Early 50 program. With each release, 50 die-hard readers will have the chance to get their eyeballs on the book at least two weeks ahead of release. First crack at the 50 early release copies goes to newsletter subscribers. After a week, we'll open up ordering to blog readers.
See. Much easier than what I go through, plus you get the books after we've sorted out the typos. And did I mention that these will be signed? And that you get the ebook along with the print book?
