Available ARCs ~ August 2017

Kate Hart
Man, what a damn mess we have in the US right now. My social media feeds are 85% horror at the news, 5% memes, and 10% fellow authors wondering how the hell they're supposed to promote their books and make a living in this climate.

For the record, I think we've reached the point where it's 100% okay to tweet promo and politics at the same time (if you didn't, you'd be waiting until 2045 to get a word in edgewise, and that's an optimistic prediction). However, I'm also keenly aware that it's awkward to promote yourself even in the best of circumstances -- and I know book bloggers and readers are having a hard time finding new titles through all the news.

So! Here is one small assist. I cruised through NetGalley and Edelweiss and made a list of ARCs available for request, organized by genre. This list does not even attempt to be exhaustive (and please don't hate me if I missed your book. There are a lot.) I have not read any of these, so my selection criteria includes but is not limited to:
  • POC/NDN/LGBTQ/disability/other marginalized rep (success of which may be up for debate)
  • author is notable, notorious, and/or an award-winner
  • description sounds unique and/or interesting
  • cover looked cool
  • because I felt like it.

If you are wondering "what the hell are NetGalley and Edelweiss," no worries: The Book BratzLili's Reflections, and Stacked have the help you need. And if you find this list helpful, please let me know -- I'd be happy to do similar posts in the future if they're useful (maybe monthly, so the post isn't quite so long?).

Sharing is always appreciated!
