I gave author Katy King one of the two Advanced Reader Copies of “Breaking Point” last night. She is a) a great writer and b) the love of my life.
I got home, started reading and listening to music, and she called. “This is a great novel!”
I said, “Sweety, you read it in, like, 12 iterations. You read the first drafts. You read it in longhand on Steno pads! You heard me outline scenes orally in bars! (because, I’m really that boring a date.)
“Yes,” she said. “But I never read it when it was in the form of a book.”
Yes. As always, she’s right. The ARC is a book. It’s no longer a Steno pad or a bunch of printed paged held together by a rubber band.
It’s a book.
