"The Sorceress and the Squid" Launch Team Application
Hello everyone! Wow, I can't believe I'm just a month and a bit away from releasing my very first novel! To be honest I never thought this day would actually come - yet, here I am. I'm so excited that you've taken an interest in joining me in the process of launching this book into the world. Thank you so much for that! I'm attempting to gather a group of about 50 special people to help me with my launch, if you think you'd like to be one of them, I would be very grateful!

My book is titled (as I'm sure you've already guessed) "The Sorceress and the Squid." It is a fairy-tale novel of about 60,000 words that I've been working on since fall of 2015. I finished the initial writing in spring of 2016 and am now into the publishing process a year later - I know, I'm so slow!

Here is my official synopsis: "In the magical land of Perth, divisions between the Old Kingdom and the New have waged for centuries. The humans have long harbored a mistrust of the spell-casting Fae and vice versa. In the midst of this conflict, Estrella the Sorceress lays waste to the Training Academy for Human Warriors, making an enemy in the soldier, Jalen. During their standoff, Jalen is turned into a squid and Estrella, unable to restore him to his original form, takes pity on him and travels west across the Sea to bring him to the Wizard in hope he can be saved. But is there more to the unrest in Perth than meets the eye?"

I'm pretty proud of this little story and excited to get it out into the world to see what y'all think of it. The tentative release date as of now is June 18th, 2017.

Now, you may be asking, what is your job as a launch team member? Glad you asked. Ultimately, I would like to gather as many reviews as possible EXACTLY on release day in order to boost my book's searchability on its very first day out in the world. This is a hugely important step in publishing, particularly self-publishing (as I am doing all of this on my own) and does wonders for a book's sales. So, your job in a nutshell is...

a) Receive a FREE digital ARC (Advanced Reader's Copy) of "The Sorceress and the Squid" that you receive right away, well before anyone else!

b) Be part of the behind-the-scenes action watching me fumble and falter my way through my first publishing adventure that will include a lot of awkwardness!

c) Leave me an Amazon and/or Goodreads review on the Launch Day (June 18th) and continue to spread the word on various social media platforms!

d) Be entered into a draw to win a signed paperback copy and other cool stuff!

Does that sound like something you'd be interested in? Of course it does! So what are you waiting for, let's get you signed up below! :D
