What's an ARC?
A few weeks prior to release, the author/publisher will send Advanced Review Copies to a set of readers.
In exchange, the readers will provide reviews of the book on certain websites, such as Amazon and Goodreads. These reviews are, also, able to be used for quotes for promotions of the novel.
For an indie author, ARC teams are invaluable as reviews are the best way for marketing their material, thus reaching more readers so they continue to do what they love-- write!

How It Works
Roughly two weeks prior to the release date, a free e-book copy will be emailed out to the ARC team. The team is volunteer based.
After the readers are done reading, they will leave an honest review on Amazon and Goodreads within a few days after release day.
ARC readers should focus on highlights of the book, what they enjoyed, anything unique to this series compared to others in the same genre. You want to avoid any spoilers, as those reading these reviews have yet to read the book themselves.
The ARC team is vitally important for the success of the book and the indie author.
