Win a Personalized Advanced Reading Copy of Necessary Lies!

Necessary Lies ARC frontI’ve seen a lot of Advanced Reading Copies (ARCs), but never one quite this pretty. I love how my publisher, St. Martin’s Press, incorporated the cover of the final book at the bottom of the ARC cover and devoted so much space to bestselling author Christina Schwarz’s wonderful quote—a quote that warmed my heart when I read it. I hope that my readers will feel the same way about Necessary Lies that Christina did.

So what is an ARC? It’s the uncorrected proof of an upcoming book and it’s sent to reviewers, librarians and bookstores to generate early reviews and orders. Since the ARC is uncorrected, you’ll find some typos, maybe some awkward sentences that will later be changed, and in the case of Necessary Lies, some documents in the body of the story that will be printed larger (and therefore more readable!) in the actual book. But the story will be the same.

ARCs are printed in limited numbers, so I only have a few and am hoarding them for some hand selected reviewers. But I have a copy reserved for one of my readers…maybe you? If you’ll add a comment to this blog post or under this post on Facebook (just “hi!” is fine!) and agree to write an honest review on Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com when reviews are allowed, you’ll be in the running. I’ll use a random number generator to select a winner. Although this is the North American version of Necessary Lies, the book will be available in all English speaking countries on September 3rd and I’ll send you the ARC no matter where you live (and if you live outside the US, you may leave your review in your country’s online stores). I’ll select a winner this Friday at noon EST.

Good luck!

    Love the cover! Looking forward to another great read!!! You keep on writing and I will keep on reading.

  2. Marie on April 22, 2013 at 4:55 pm

    Pick me! Pick me! Simply can’t wait for the release date! Also I often spot mistakes in books so I will gladly be willing to have a wee check through for you 🙂 x

    • Diane Chamberlain on April 22, 2013 at 5:05 pm

      No editing necessary at this point, Marie! The final draft has already gone to the printers, so any mistakes at that point are there to stay!

  3. Alison Callaghan on April 22, 2013 at 4:55 pm

    Was only recently introduced to your books by a friend of mine. Since then, I have managed to acquire all books up to date (was delighted to find the older backlist ones on kindle 🙂 Fantastic books, I’m dreading finishing the ones I have now and having to wait for the next one! Please, please, please keep writing forever! All the best, Alison xxx

    Hi!!!

    This would be amazing to win as a reward for completing my degree. I haven’t been able to read very much for pleasure over the last 3 years because the course has been so intense, but whenever I have done, it has been your books that I read. Breaking the Silence has been my favourite so far and I am really looking forward to Necessary Lies, just wish I didn’t have to wait until September for it though!

  122. Andrea Hillman on April 23, 2013 at 2:48 am

    What a wonderful surprise for the lucky lucky people who are picked. Qite tempted to spend all night adding to your blog to statistically improve my chances! Maybe not entirely fair though.

    Since reading Midwife’s Confessions 2 years ago I have read almost all your other books, buying used copies from the US before we get them in the UK. I have completely fallen in love with North Carolina, and the places you describe so vividly. I’ve bought 2 guide books and my other half and I will be visiting in 2 years time; it’ll be our 30th Anniversary and my 50th birthday. I’ve been very ill and am therefore spending the next 2 years gaining strength, slimming down, and saving up. I want to see all those wonderful places I’ve read about. So, any of you guys run a B & B? Any suggestions on places thaat must not be missed? And any places that quilters gather would be particularly dear to my heart!

    Diane, thank you for giving me a reason to start living again.

    I would be thrilled if I could win an ARC of your new novel. I started reading your novels because you were inspiring writing so many wonderful novels with RA and I read them now because you are truely a favorite author.

    We’ve got a winner! Congratulations, Barb Cotter. Not sure where she lives yet, but she’ll soon be receiving an ARC!

    Have just found your books and I am really enjoying them, this new book sounds a wonderful read. The cover is beautiful and well suited to the story inside. Thanks for being such an aspiring author I look forward to reading all your books.

    Choose me! I love to read and I love to talk about the books I’ve read. College graduate–English major–now retired–and more books than I know what to do with. Happy to give my opinion—and I DO know how to critique. I’m an avid reader–and I am reliable. Choose me!

    hi there I belong to a book club consisting of about 10 to 16 participants. We are in our 7 th year of meeting monthly. Our group ranges in age from late 20’s to mid 70’s. Many are mother/ daughter/ daughter in law and aunt/ niece. We rotate who picks the book each month.My turn is coming up and I came across your newest book Necessary Lies and really would like to present it to our group. One of the very few “rules” that we have is that the book must be in paperback. Can you tell me if it is available in paperback or when it will be available in paperback. I would love to make this my selection. Thank you for your time.
