The Sea Garden US early copies

 
The countdown to publication this summer has begun - June in the US and July in the UK. In America, a limited number of early reading copies are now available, in the hope that word will begin to spread and there will be some initial reactions on review sites when the book goes on sale. If you would like an early copy of The Sea Garden (and you live in the US) you can apply using this link to HarperCollins in conjunction with the Shelf Awareness website.
 
I'm also thrilled that one of my favourite US authors, Sarah Jio has generously given us the following blurb:
 
"Deborah Lawrenson's writing is delicious. Her stories are atmospheric, intoxicating and impossible not to get lost in." --Sarah Jio, New York Times bestselling author of GOODNIGHT JUNE and BLACKBERRY WINTER
 
So please do get yourself a copy if you can - I'd love to know what you think! The only word of caution (which might interest those of you who like to follow the writing process) is that these early copies are printed from the uncorrected proofs that I was working on back in November and as such there are some mistakes and repetitions that have been excised from the finished book.

So, I "applied" and filled in all the blanks. Not sure what happens now: do they automatically send me a copy? Anyway, can't wait to read!

I think that's how it works, Libby - hope so, anyway.
