Alfheim is a young adult urban fantasy novel
Many authors, today, finish writing a manuscript and have it uploaded to Amazon or Barnes and Noble within hours of typing “the end”. They often ignore the intensive amount of work that is necessary to ensure their creation will rise above the level of obscurity.
Publishing a novel takes time and planning to pave the way for its arrival in a world that sees as many as 1,000,000 books published each year. Competition for readership is fierce. Producing an Advance Reader’s copy of a novel is a necessary tool to help position a book for successful release. These copies are circulated among established authors in the novel’s genre in hopes of receiving commentary on the quality of the work in the form of a “blurb”. These are used to attract potential buyers as they read them on the back cover of the book. Other copies are sent to various reviewers and book clubs to stir up interest in the published version to follow.
