The ARC thing generated a lot more commentary than I expected. o.O For the record, it's really not that I care about losing a sale--I think most people who buy ARCs probably also buy the final version of the book. I'm genuinely pleased that people are interested enough in the books to buy ARCs, and as I said to someone in comments, it's not at all that I object to people buying them. I object to people *selling* them. I realize that this is a double-edged sword, but there you have it. Anyway, I've turned it over to my agent and editor at this point, and I think I will attempt not to stir this hornet's nest again.
