Get Ahead of the Crowd _________________________

One of the real treats of working in the book world is being one of the few who get to read books before they are officially published. Uncorrected proofs, as they are termed, are the editions of the books produced in small numbers and sent to book reviewers and the book buyers of large book chains.

Well through Lovereading you can now get on the inside track with our new ‘Exclusive Pre-publication’ genre.

Each month we will feature a small selection of books that are due to be published officially in the coming months.

Keep up to date by signing up for our free regular emails.

You will be able to download and print off an opening extract of these books and decide whether you like it enough to pre-order it and be sent it the minute it’s published.
