Part of the publishing process is giving early access to books so reviewers and booksellers can have a sneak peak. These books are usually produced while edits are still ongoing so there will be typos, punctuation issues, possibly some format errors and very occasionally some plot holes. They are either called uncorrected proofs or advance review copies (ARC). The covers are often similar but not the same as the finished cover.
Penguin have produced one for Half Moon Bay and mine arrived today. If the ARC looks like this I can’t wait to see the finished book!! Thanks, Ali, and the rest of the Penguin team.
