I know there will be ARCs sometime in April, but I honestly don't have any idea yet how many will be offered. You can contact Jodie Hockensmith, my publicist at Pulse. Her email is on the contact page of my website. I've also started a handful of giveaways -- there's one here on Goodreads and another with the cover reveal on several blogs. You can find a list here at AdventuresInYAPublishing.com. I hope that helps! And thank you again for letting me know you enjoyed Compulsion! I hope you'll love Persuasion too!!! XO(less)
