The ARCs Have Arrived!

There are 180 names in the Bolivian hat. I'll be pulling 30 out at random and emailing those people to ask for mailing addresses. I hope to start making trips to the post office tomorrow.

I'm cautiously optimistic that a few more ARCs will become available for distribution. Harcourt knows how much I want to spread them around. and while I've given some to friends of mine, they may return them when they're finished (in which case it'll be a used ARC).

I'm going to set up a comment zone here, so if you want to share your opinions of the book, you'll have a place to do so. And I do ask that you don't sell the ARC and you don't put it into a library system, in lieu of an actual copy. Beyond that. the ARC is yours to do with as you wish.

Okay. The time has come to pull 30 names out of the Bolivian hat, and to start emailing the people who get selected.

I want to thank all of you for your interest in This World We Live In and your patience. I truly appreciate both.


  1. Look at them! They're beautiful! Yay!

  2. Wait question.
    If we didn't recieve an email yesterday or today does that mean we didn't win? Or does it just mean the drawing hasn't happened yet? Even is we didn't win we still might get one when you (you being Ms. Pfeffer)get more?

  3. Hi to Cassandra and Jon-

    I've emailed everyone whose name I pulled out of the hat, so if you haven't heard from me, you won't be getting an ARC this go round.

    I am hoping to get a few more to send out. I've kept everyone's names, so all I'd have to do is put the names back in the Bolivian hat.

  4. goodness there's so many of them! it's so inspirational!
    to see miranda and alex interact will be too good to be true :)

  5. Look at all those books! I'm so excited to be able to start reading the book. I'm such a huge fan and I'm excited my name was drawn from the hat!

  6. wow! I know it's months since this post, but I still can't wait for the actual book release (of which I will buy several and give to many people). Any chance kind readers have returned any ARCs that you might be willing to send to me? I figure it can't hurt to ask! Thanks for even considering my request for a nano-second!

  7. I'm with Lauren, any chance that a couple ARC readers will want to pass this book on to someone else? April just seems so far away!

    Please and thank you!

  8. I love this book so much!!! I've read it 5 times and I still continue! I cant get enough of the series altogether!! I love how you mixed Alex and Miranda together, it was fantastic!! I'm such a huge fan of this series and your books!!! All of my friends love them to and we always talk about it. This series is just magnificent!
