Advance Reader Team

[Side note: a lot of readers have been asking how they can help spread the word. By far the most effective thing a reader can do to help is post on social media with a photo/image of Arcane, along with an honest but casual explanation of why they loved it. This sort of engagement has been found to be an incredibly powerful tool readers can utilize to help their favorite authors.]

ADVANCE READER TEAM

STATUS: CURRENTLY ACCEPTING APPLICANTS

What’s an Advance Reader Team?

The Advance Reader Team is a select group of readers who have volunteered to read and review advance copies of my new releases. A few weeks before release day, publishers send Advance Review Copies (ARCs) to select readers in exchange for an honest review of the book on Amazon.com. These reviews are critical in helping launch the book off the ground.

Upsides of joining the team?

You get a free electronic copy of each new book.
You get to read it before anyone else.
You help other readers get a clearer sense of the new book.
You make a difference in one author’s life.

Downsides?

Since advance reviews are critical to the success of a newly launched book, the book needs to be read before the day of the release, and the review must be ready to be posted on Amazon.com on release day.

How do I apply?

1. Honestly review any of the following on Amazon: Arcane and/or Burden’s Edge. Bonus points if you also leave a review on Goodreads, and double bonus points if you leave more than one review on any of my other books on Amazon (Riven, Valor, Clash, Legend, Honor’s Price :)

2. Email me at severbronny@gmail.com inquiring if you can join my Advance Review Team. Please include a copy/screenshot of your Amazon review (or simply include a link to it). This is to ensure that you have an Amazon account in good standing and are able to leave a review.

3. Join my newsletter as this is how you’ll know of upcoming releases and ARCs.

I can’t express my gratitude enough to those that apply. Thank you so much :)

    • Hello Don :)

      Thank you so much for taking the time to review. You wouldn’t be the only person in their 60’s on my team — I have a former retired Nasa engineer and a retired vet too :)

      I have been fortunate in that all kinds of people have enjoyed the series.

      Please email me at severbronny@gmail.com and I’ll add you to the team :)

  3. Loved all five books! I just finished reading the series and I couldn’t put it down. I read all five books in a week and a half and I can say it was a great story and I’m hoping there is more to come!

  10. I loved the first 5 books, Then the first in the new Trilogy. I only hope Anna Stone and the Scion are due to make a return to shake up his new enemies. Honestly, when he was whipped in front of his Grandmothers statue, I fully expected that Anna would make an appearance from Let, to once again outlaw whipping students. Im on Netgalley, GoodReads and Kindle Unlimited, I hope I can be considered for the advance reading! Im on edge waiting

  11. These books are amazing if you can keep up what you are doing then you are an absolute legend. I just bought the book yesterday and I’m already finished because it was so good can’t wait for the next ones. Oh and also great plot twist with Brandon and Katrina Von Edgeworth

  12. I loved the whole series, I read the whole series in about a month, and just finished Burdens Edge. I am waiting anxiously for the next book. I too am one of your older readers but can see where younger readers would enjoy them as well. I am trying to get my grandchildren into them. Keep them coming! If you still seek advanced release readers I would really love the honor.

  13. I love your books and I have read all of the hooks about Augum, but they are on my kindle under my Dad’s amazon account. Is that okay? Also thank you SOOOOOOOO much for not making Burden’s Edge not a short story. I love long books.

  14. These books are all such masterpieces. I cannot wait for more! I applied to be an advance reader. I’ve been waiting for Augum to summon a dragon since reading that the Orb of Orion could do so in myth. Also can’t wait to read more about Leyans and Ley. Such a unique world and complex set of characters.

  15. Hi Sever. I actually haven’t come across your work before seeing Burden’s Edge on Amazon. I downloaded it from there and found I enjoyed it immensely. I realize it has a YA vibe, and I’m pushing 60, but honestly that doesn’t bother me at all. I also enjoyed Brandon Sanderson’s “Reckoners” series, and those are geared for YA. I notice volume 2, Honor’s Price, has been released, so I’ll be picking that up next. I’m tempted to sign up for your Advance Reader program, as I certainly don’t mind playing an active part with a series that I very much enjoy. I haven’t read your first series yet, so I imagine I should get around to that, as well. The big problem with me reading books I enjoy is I tend to not be able to put them down. I stayed up until 3 am this morning (damn you) with Burden’s Edge, and I had to work this morning.

    I have no issues writing a review on Amazon.ca of Burden’s Edge. Honestly, I only found one typo, which is pretty good in a novel. I usually notice several! And I’d have no issues recommending your books to others, based solely on my experience with Burden’s Edge.

    Will look forward to book 3 in December.

    Cheers,
    Bill

  16. Yo lo! I’ve read both The Arinthian Line and Fury of a Rising Dragon and I found them both to be wonderful reads. I was thrilled when I found out you were going to follow up The Arinthian Line with the new series (Fury of a Rising Dragon) and was thrilled yet again when I found out you would make a 3rd book to the “new” series. Anyways, I would be more than honored to be a part of the Advanced Readers club.

  18. I really hope I make it on your Advance Read Team, because I’m absolutely anxious to see all the new spells the trio learn (That is my literal favorite part of every book) and how they all grow up, and I don’t think I’ll make it to December without it.
