Torn – ARCs

With Torn‘s release imminent, I’m looking for people interested in advanced copies. Readers open to checking for mistakes, both grammatical and plot-wise, are encouraged to do so, but it’s not necessary.

Are you interested in getting an ARC? Answer me these questions three-

  • Have you read and enjoyed Switched?
  • Do you read ecopies of books (either PDF, .doc, or some other electronic way)?
  • Do you have a review blog?

If you answered yes to those three questions, then I’d probably like to send you an ARC. If you’re interested in a paperback ARC of Torn, I will be getting some out, but not for a few weeks.

So, if you’re interested, let me know. Either leave you’re my email or email me at:

If you haven’t read Switched, but you answered yes to the other two questions, let me know, and I’d probably enjoy if you reviewed an ARC of Switched.

I say “let me know” a lot. I hope you like me anyway.

Thanks in advance!

    Hi! I can’t answer yes to the last question, but to the other two i can emphatically answer yes! I am great at finding errors in books, in fact sometimes they drive me crazy. I would love to review Torn! I loved the first book! It was amazing. I pass on a lot of book recommendations to my friends. my email is if you are interested. I would be honored.

    Oh and I completely forgot my email… Duh… I try to use pdfs since my Mac occasionally spazes out with Microsoft files 🙂 I also did a review of switched on my book blog and My Blood Approves.

    The answer is yes to all 3 for me! I loved Switched. I would love an ARC of Torn. I’m not sure I could do much in the proofreading department but I would love a copy to review for you!

    Amanda, you’re awesome! I read and reviewed a PDF of Switched on my blog and I LOVED it!!! I would die-or at least be smiling like an idiot for a month- if I got an ARC of Torn! Also, I love the new look of the blog 🙂

  • – I loved, loved, loved Switched and would be honored to beta-read Torn!

    – I read with a Kindle mainly. PDF’s or doc’s work too.

    – I have a brand new blog that I write with my husband “Wagners plus Two.”

    Interested? Absolutely. I’d would really enjoy doing this. I prefer physical copies (they’re just easier to read), but I don’t mind reading it on a pdf. I don’t have a wordpress blog specifically for book reviews, but I do have a blog on Simon & Schuster’s Pulse It site. The girls on there are always looking for a good book and I know they’d be interested in your Trylle trilogy. Regardless, I’ll be telling them about Torn anyway.

    I would beta-read for you again! I read Switched a few weeks ago (right after beta-reading Zombieland), but I don’t review on a blog or otherwise, so I understand if I don’t qualify 🙂 good luck to you on the release. i’ll be reading Torn right when it comes out, regardless!!

    Hi Amanda

    I’d be glad to read/proofread any of your books (only physical copy though, I find digital too hard on my eyes anymore).

    I spent 4 years working at a newspaper and one of my job duties was proof-reading, so I’m the girl for you LOL

    I’ve not yet had the pleasure of reading Switched either,though it certainly sounds incredible!
