What is an ARC Team? An ARC team is a group of readers or bloggers who participate in helping an author get the word out about her new releases by posting information on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, etc. as well as placing positive reviews on Goodreads, Bookbub, and Amazon, if such a review can be honestly given.
What's so special about Katie's Ladies? A Katie's Lady is a fan of Kathryn R. Blake and her writing, who elects to join a special (dare I say elite?) group of individuals for access to a private online location to interact with Kathryn and the other members of the team to discuss books, plots, writing, marketing, promotion, whatever. We can say what we like since the group will be private.
So what are my perks and benefits for joining? I'm so glad you asked. You did ask, didn't you? Outside of receiving my eternal gratitude, a Katie's Lady will get first access to all my ARCs (even before the publisher sees them) as well as exclusive content, story excerpts, and deleted scenes. In addition, I'll provide some saucy book details that you can post on your blog or Facebook page (if you wish). Katie's Ladies will be given first chance to be a part of any Release Tours. A lady will also receive a badge to place on her blog and be eligible for quarterly giveaways offered to Katie's Ladies only. Plus, free swag, which will include some specially made book thongs, just for the ladies.
What about the guys? Are they eligible to join? Of course. I realize most of my readers are female, but I have received a comment or two from the gents, so I don't want them to feel left out, but I'm also sure they wouldn't want to be called a "lady." So, if any gentlemen wish to join our select party, we will need to come up with a special badge and name for them. Perhaps "Blake's Blades" or something similar.
Sounds good. So, how do I join? Simple. First, click Next and complete the teeny weeny form. Then just accept either mine or Renee Brooks PA Fb friend request. You will then be invited to join my secret Fb group.
