Sneak Peek - Current Events: Seized!

 

Seized

  

 

 

Welcome to Sneak Peek: Current Events!

 

We’re excited to announce that Max Hardberger’s Seized – a swashbuckling tale of true-life high seas adventure! -- is our March selection.

 

You will receive a free advance reading copy and access to the discussion with the author. The ARCs will mail soon and the discussion will begin on March 15th.

 

 

 

 

Please only enroll if you're going to participate in the discussion. ARCs are limited, so if you do not participate, you will be excluded from future First Look selections.

Here is how to enroll:

 

1. Sign in 

 

If you are not signed into your book club account, please sign in from the link in the upper left of this page. This is important. If you don't sign in, you will not be able to request a book. If you are having trouble signing in, please click here for more information.

If you are not a registered book club user, you can create an account by clicking on the register link in the upper right of this page. It's easy, and it's free.

2. Submit your information  

 

Now that you are signed into your account, click on the small envelope icon above the list of boards. Click on New Message* and enter the following information into the window, as described below:

Re: Sneak Peek - Current Events: Seized!

Yeah, it should be fun!  The book looks really interesting too.  I haven't got a copy myself yet.  I hope everyone who signed up participates!  I have a feeling they will because the author seems like a really interesting character.

No I haven't received a confirmation yet either guys and gals.

But the book does look incredible and any one signing up and not participating should be ashamed of their selves.

:smileyvery-happy: LOL!   Watch out!   Debbie's got the wet lashes out!

 

(I just hope to have signed up in time -- I didn't catch this was separate from the First Look announced for February 1.  I believe they both showed up on the boards the same day.  I might have signed up only for this one if I had realized, rather than both.  Perhaps I am even feeling a little greedy, but still I shall be disappointed if not in on this one.  Go figure.)

Just practicing snapping the lashes Pep. :womanwink:

I know how you feel about FL though, I love being the first to read a new novel and it definitely broadens my horizons and gets me out of my comfort zone of reading. I hope you made it too.

Re: Sneak Peek - Current Events: Seized!

How many books are usually sent out in these programs?  I've done a few first looks but never a sneak peak before.  I found out about the last one too late to sign up.

Debbie, I agree.  This book does look like it's going to be incredible.  I haven't received confirmation yet either.

 

Is there going to be other threads to discuss the book on, like Introductions, Community room and things going on in the book?

Hi Lisa, I don't know how this sneak peek will work, but with the last one we just discussed it on the romance club and the moderator there handled it.

I haven't been confirmed yet either.
