ARCs for THE HUNT are now available! πŸ™‚ And it’s super easy to request one.

Here’s how it works:
“β€œARCs are available to reviewers, bloggers, booksellers, librarians, teachers, etc.

“β€œIf you are one or more of those and you’re interested in an ARC for THE RULES, just fill out the form below.

“β€œI will gather up all the info and submit it to Hyperion on regular basis.

And that’s it! πŸ™‚

Also, I believe THE HUNT will at some point be available on NetGalley, if you’d prefer that option, but that will likely be closer to early 2014.

Please note: Filling out the form does not guarantee you’ll receive an ARC. There are a limited number available and Hyperion will decide how many to send out and to whom. But it never hurts to make the request! And all requests are welcome.

    I am a Junior and senior English teacher at Ronald Reagan High School in San Antonio, Texas. I would like to see if this book is appropriate to add to my syllabus and have my students read under their category of young adult literature/science fition. In order to do so I will have to read it and then submit it for approval. Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter.

      Hi Gloria!
      I’d be happy to pass along your information to my publisher, Disney-Hyperion. They will be sending out the ARCs. And I would love to have my book(s) as part of your curriculum! That would be amazing. πŸ™‚

      However, just wanted to make sure that you knew that THE HUNT is actually book 2 in the series. THE RULES is the first book. It came out in April this year. I’m guessing, for class and approval purposes, you’d probably want to start with book one? If you need an ARC of THE RULES for that purpose, please email me through the contact page here on my site or stacey(at)staceykade(dot)com and let me check into what I can do.

    Dear Stacey,
    I really enjoyed The Rules and am looking forward to The Hunt. Im a softmore at my high school and found The Rules in my library. Would you please add the book number and the fact that its in a series somewhere obvious. I’ve often picked up a book only to find out its a sequel and have to hunt down its predecessor. Also I noticed this sort of loose end after finishing the book (and perhaps you already addressed this and its something i missed) but why did Zanes Dad want to get a job inside GTX? Um for those unfamiliar with the terminology I suppose im ordering a rough, advance copy of the book? I wikipedia’d ARC so im guessing thats what it is. Book numbers, loose ends & terminology aside awesomely done Im off to check out Bitter Pill and the Ghost and Goth trilogy. Superb work.
    Thanks for the great read,
    Marcus Hicks

      Hi Marcus!
      Thanks so much! πŸ™‚ I’m so glad you enjoyed The Rules!

      I’m with you on the accidentally picking up a sequel thing–happens to me all the time. Ugh! I can definitely mention it to my publisher, but I think I’ve had that conversation with them before. I believe they’ve chosen not to use book numbers on any of their YA series, as company standard. If you check out Ally Carter’s Gallagher Girls series or Alex Bracken’s Darkest Minds series, I don’t think they have numbers on them either.

      But I understand. It is frustrating and confusing to get all the way home with the wrong book! So, I’ll ask them again, just to be sure. πŸ™‚

      As for Zane’s dad, he doesn’t want a job at GTX. He is very pleased with his job as Chief of Police. He likes the prestige. What he wants, though, is to be in good with the head people over at GTX. In a small town, the largest employer has almost a celebrity status. Chief Bradshaw cares very much about what people think about him, and he’d like to more involved with GTX because that would raise his status. Hope that helps explain it a little better!

      ARC=Advance Reading Copy. It’s a paperback version of the book, usually without the final text (so there may be typos) and sometimes without the final cover image. It’s meant to go to reviewers, librarians, teachers, etc. so they can read the book ahead of its release and decide if it’s something they want to recommend to students/readers or buy for their libraries.

      The finished version of the book will be available on April 22, 2014.

      I will submit your request to my publisher for an ARC, but as noted on the form, there are a limited number of ARCs available and teachers, reviewers, and librarians have priority. If you got The Rules through your school library, you may want to ask your librarian to submit a request for an ARC as well. Doubles your chances! πŸ˜€

      Thanks again for reading The Rules and for taking the time to write me a message! πŸ™‚

      All my best,
