New Twist on ARC sales: Free gift with purchase.
Some enterprising ebayer is trying to get around the “not for resale” limitation on ARCs by offering up the ARC as a free gift with purchase. Obviously he is really selling the ARC but since he is “giving” the ARC away with a book for sale, he looks to be within the guidelines of ARC distribution. What now for authors? Get on your publishers, ladies. Get a tighter hold on the distribution of ARCs. These ebayers. So clever.
PS Would like a New Moon arc. I think Little Brown would like to give me one. Alas, *sniffle*, no copies are around to be given. In lieu of a New Moon ARC, I would definitely be pacified with an ARC of Lover Awakened by JR Ward or No Rest for the Wicked by Kresley Cole. Just saying.
