Where's that forum for people who've read the ARC? 'cause I can't find a link anymore.

There's a board for discussing the arc over on stormblessed: http://www.stormblessed.com/forum/index.php you have to ask the admin steve to admit you to it, it's invisible till he's specifically give you access, tell him you've read the arc and you want to discuss it and he'll let you in.

I'm sad. Someone showed me their ARC, and I got to read a chapter or two from it, then he took it away. It feels now like I'm missing out on something...

That's terrible. I would NEVER* do that to anyone. It's too cruel!

That's what he gets for having me as a cousin-in-law.
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

I'm relatively sure that being related to peter, and having brandon as one of your favorite authors would eventually lead to murder for this sort of reason.

I won an ARC on twitter!  I'm waiting to get it, and I'm so excited!
When to live is to die, and to die is to live, does either really matter?

I won one yesterday via a TOR give away. Currently waiting on it to arrive. :)

Mine too! Hopefully. If they sent it media mail it could take up to a month to arrive! It could get delivered AFTER I buy one a copy in store!!

I asked the peps at Tor what service they used and they had no idea what shipping method they use.   >:(  :'(
I'm assuming that they would use at least usps to send them, which would mean no more than a week to most areas, but who knows.

Media mail = USPS. But if the whole reason behind an ARC is to get it and read it and post reviews BEFORE release date, media mail would be out of the question for their purposes. You're probably right about the week time period. Shipped on friday.. should be getting mine any day now. Where are the TOR offices located?

Mine got shipped today, so I'm not sure when I'll get it.
