We have "Orchid" ARCs!

Not to be confused with Orchid Orcs, which are an entirely different beast.

Yes, at very long last, the advance reading copies of The Orchid Affair have arrived. At last count, I owe ARCs to Liz, Veronica, Robyn, Diya, Devan, Allison, Stephanie, Sara McE, Amanda B and Julie L.

If you’re one of the ARC winners, just email me your snail mail address, and I’ll pop your long-awaited ARC in the mail to you! If you’re not one of the ARC winners, stay tuned for upcoming contests for a chance to win one.

Now back to our regularly scheduled Mistletoe….

    Congrats, Stephanie!

  9. Stephanie Ball on October 20, 2010 at 8:53 pm

    thanks… it was a long road, almost a year with no income.. couldn’t collect unemployment etc.. but all good now.

    This website and its contests gave me something to do, helped a lot to have something i could work on that didn’t make me more stressed out about going broke. Very grateful to Lauren and her books and of course everyone on this site.

    I’m so glad that the community here helped you through the past year– and even more glad that you’ve not only found something, but something so interesting! Congrats, Stephanie. Yay, you!

    I’m picturing orchid orcs. Hmm. These would be the elegant, Royal Court orcs, no doubt, quite scornful of their crude country cousins.

    Wonder what the Orcly equivalent of Almack’s would be?

  12. Marian Berthoud on October 22, 2010 at 1:25 am

    Oh jeez, I guess I am going to have to re-read all the other books in preparation! So much work! Such a trial to read those books… 🙂

    Looking forward to Mistletoe and Orchid Affair, I truly can’t wait to read them.

    An “Orchid” ARC is drool-worthy! I’m jealous of the winners – enjoy!

  14. Sue S on October 22, 2010 at 5:12 pm

    Can’t you feel the excitement in the air? Congrats to the winners of the “Orchid Affair”. We are all so envious but can hardly wait until it’s released to all.

  15. Stephanie Ball on October 26, 2010 at 10:22 pm

    I got my ARC!!

  16. amanda b. on October 30, 2010 at 11:55 pm
