New Rules! - MUST READ!

Hey everyone! Harmony and I were talking the other night, and we wanted to try and start a new idea with the 1 ARC Tours.

First of all, if you are still going to be apart of tours, please fill out the form at the end of this post. We have a list of members now, but we need to get it updated! If you don't plan on being on any more tours, please don't fill out the form. Even if you already sent us the e-mail with your information, please fill out the form! (Also, remember that the tours are for the US and Canada only.)

Next, we're going to test out a new idea.

-You have one week to read the book after it's sent to you. This will be tracked. I'm going to have all the addresses on file. You'll e-mail me at onearctours[at]yahoo[dot]com to get the address of the person after you on the tour list.
-When you send the book out to them, you'll also e-mail me to let me know.
-When that person receives the book, they'll e-mail me at onearctours[at]yahoo[dot]com to let me know, and I'll send them the next address on the tour, etc.
-Whether or not you are posting your reviews will also be tracked, so make sure you're still doing that!
-If you have any questions about this process, please leave them in the comments or e-mail us.
-This new process will start with the tour The Witchy Worries of Abby Adams and continue to all tours that have started after that.
-A note from Erica: When you guys are signing up for tours, PLEASE leave your email address. It takes time to make checklists, and even more when I have to go searching for emails. If you repetitively are not leaving an email address, you will stop being put on tours.

Here's the form! Please make sure you fill this out if you're a member or want to be a member. :)

I think these are great ideas! I'm still waiting on a book for a tour that began mid-December, and I'm fifth on the list. It will be nice to have a better idea of when to expect books. Thanks for all of your hard work!

Great idea! Should be easy to keep up for both you and the readers. Thanks!

I like these rules. It keeps the book going and holds up a standard for people joining in on tours.

Where do we post our reviews?

What if we want to be taken off lists from the past tours that still haven't reached us? If you're going to be emailing the people directly with shipping info, then how do we let you know to skip us because we've read the book already?
