Thanks for your interest in joining my promo team! I am limiting membership to 50 people at this point. I might open it up for more later.
Just so we're clear from the start, this isn't a fan club. It's a team of people who love my work and are excited to help me promote it. If you're still interested, keep reading!
You should read at least one of my books if you're going to join (after all how can you tell people how much you love my writing if you've never read it), so if you haven't, you can start with my free book, Shadow Stalker Part 1 (Episodes 1 - 6): https://www.instafreebie.com/free/cRTA2
There are 4 areas where I will need help and you can help with just one or all. It's up to you!
BETA READERS: Months before my work is released--after my edits, but before I send it out to my editor--I will need beta readers to read my stories and answer questions on a form to give me feedback about the story. I will make necessary changes based on that feedback then send it to my editor for the final editing.
REVIEWERS: This is perfect for those who can't afford to buy books, but still want to read them. I need people who are willing to read my books before they're released and leave a review on Amazon. You are welcome to leave the review anywhere else you'd like (including your blog if you have one), but I definitely need them on Amazon. The books will be available for pre-order during this time, and Amazon allows ARC reviews during pre-order, so you don't have to have purchased the book. You'll receive novels and other long works a month before release, and shorter works about a week before release. This gives you plenty of time to read the book and leave a review before release.
IMPORTANT: There are new rules regarding interviews on Amazon. If you're an author, you cannot post a review for me on Amazon, though you can still post it at Goodreads and other retailers. They are trying to cut down on authors offering each other 5 star reviews for one in exchange. If you'd like, instead you can give me a blurb to post on my books editorial section on Amazon.
BLOGGERS: I need bloggers who are willing to share my new releases with their readers. Also when you first sign up, I'll ask that you blog about my free book, Shadow Stalker Part 1 (Episodes 1 - 6). I use this book to find new readers, so it's important for me to get it out everywhere I can. I will send you all the information and images you'll need for the posts.
SOCIAL MEDIA: I need people who have social media accounts to share my new releases with their followers. As with the bloggers, when you first sign up, I'll need you to share my free book, Shadow Stalker Part 1 (Episodes 1 - 6). I will format both long and short posts for you to share, so all you will need to do is copy and paste it.
Every quarter, I'll be running giveaways that are available only to my promo team members. You'll have a chance to win a $10 Amazon Gift Card each quarter. I'll also run exclusive giveaways for autographed print copies of my books and swag on occasion. If you have ideas on what you'd like to get as a reward, make a suggestion and I'll see what I can do.
The quarters run as follows:
1st Quarter January - March2nd Quarter April - June3rd Quarter July - September4th Quarter October - December
I also have a Facebook Group where I will put my postings as well. So if you're on Facebook you may want to join there for real time updates: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1506036969707894/
