JK Rowling decide to up her amount of trashiness. She was already trash because she liked transphobic tweets, then she followed transphobic people, then she decided to tweet openly transphobic things, and then decided to write a whole transphobic essay about how she’s not transphobic. She’s also racist and homophobic and all around trash. I have a lot of feelings. It feels weird to have these feelings, but I want to talk about them.

None other than May Hawthorne, sister of Justin Hawthorne and reader of The Deck Of Omens.

ARCs are fickle things. They’re promotional materials, and yet they are highly coveted by people who love to promote books. They’re cool! You get to read a book early. You’re helping the author and the publisher promote it. It’s amazing when a publisher allows you to read a book early. It’s awesome that they think you will help promote the book by sharing your thoughts. But, along with all this comes a lot of other things. Like, what are ARCs really used for? Who should get them? How are they distributed? I’ve had some thoughts on ARCs and some other discussions around them, so I thought I’d talk about it a bit!
