Advance Reading Copy (ARC) of NOBODY'S HERO available Dec. 23; Official version by Dec. 31


My editor, line editors, beta readers, and I have worked really hard to get Nobody's Hero ready for a Friday (Dec.23) release, but it's not quite there yet. However, I am going to do what publishers do for reviewers and offer you an Advance Reading Copy (known as an ARC in the business) on Dec. 23. If you find errors, feel free to e-mail me at kallypsomasters@gmail.com or private message me on Facebook by Dec. 28 so I can make sure to get them corrected in the OFFICIAL edition, which will be released by Dec. 31 on Amazon and B&N (and by Dec. 30 on Smashwords and All Romance eBooks sites).

The location of the e-book at Amazon, B&N, Smashwords and All Romance eBooks will not change from one version to the next, so you will not have to pay for two copies. I'll delete the ARC reference inside the file and update the product descriptions at those sites when the OFFICIAL version is uploaded. The ARC label will only be on the inside of the book, not the product title info.

If you buy the ARC version, to get your Official one, just return to the same site you purchased the ARC and download the new one, OR using the same Kindle/Nook device you purchased the ARC on, sync up at Amazon or B&N for the official one. Those who buy at Amazon and B&N, you'll probably get an e-mail from them telling you about the newer version so you can sync it to your Kindle/Nook. 

READERS: If you are terribly bothered by niggling errors and typos in a book, PLEASE WAIT for the OFFICIAL version for the fullest enjoyment of Karla and Master Adam's story! But if you just can't wait and will be so deep in the story and the characters you can forgive those (or won't even notice), then please enjoy the ARC version.

BLOGGER/PROFESSIONAL REVIEWERS: If you want the ARC version to review, let me know by Dec. 23 which format you read in and your e-mail address and I'll send the ARC. Otherwise, if you're on my list, I'll wait and send the Smashwords coupon for the Official version. If reviewing from an ARC, please allow for some minor errors or inconsistencies and indicate that you are reviewing from an ARC version.

Being self-pubbed lets me do some whacky things! Thank you for our understanding and support this year as I debuted my career as a full-time writer! Thanks to you all, I MADE IT! No more Evil Day Jobs for me!


  1. I am so glad it is almost here. I will definitely be getting it on the 23rd. I can't make myself wait, lol.

  2. I can't wait for this story! I've been checking Amazon almost daily;) Yay!!

  3. The book should be on Amazon, B&N, and Smashwords on Friday, Dec. 23, but if they go live sooner, I'll let you know!

    I'm going to hold off on All Romance eBooks, because they don't have an easy way to get updated versions. So, I'm not publishing there until Dec. 31.

    Book is in the hands of the formatter today. Came out over 135,000 words! Feel free to take some breaks rather than read all at once. And the ARC version will have a number of things that I didn't have time to fix (or would have had to delay the 23rd ARC). So, definitely be sure and get your official version on the 31st! I'll do some fixes to the rope suspension scene, catch all kinds of typos, finish inputting changes found by my beta readers, editor, and line editors.

    In other words, if you read the ARC--please don't expect a nice clean copy! :)

    I hope everyone enjoys their holidays! I plan to be offline from Dec. 24 afternoon to Dec. 27 evening enjoying my family (who have missed me the last four months)!
