I feel extremely blessed to be able to write and share my work but, as any writer will tell you, promotion is the hardest part of our job. If only there were more hours in the day. As a reader, you can help. If you've read some of my books and have enjoyed them, help spread the word. Join my Street Team.
The benefits of being on my Street Team....
*Access to my private yahoo group where you can read exclusive excerpts, take part in Q&A's, and have access to exclusive links to private pages on my website containing character profiles and/or photos I used for inspiration when I created the characters and locations of a story etc.
*Be a betta reader - Read an upcoming release months before it's official release.
*Exclusive contests – Autographed print copies, free downloads, or Amazon Gift Certificates.
*Exclusive opportunities to host me on a blog tour or interview.
*Receive a package of swag (bookmarks, postcards & brochures etc).
What do you have to do....
Members of my Street Team wouldn't be asked to do EVERYTHING on these lists. Only do whatever feels comfortable to you.
*Talk my books up and share promo material with friends and family.
•Buy my books the first week of release, which helps it get on the bestseller lists.
•Ask your local library to order my books.
•If my books aren't on the shelves, ask the bookseller to order it.
•Take promo materials sent to you to your local stores, place them with the booksellers. You can leave them with libraries and even at coffee shops.
•Take promo materials sent to you to your local reader group, writers group.
•Feature interviews, reviews, excerpts, covers via your blog, site, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
•Share your (honest) review of the book via Amazon, Christianbook.com, and Barnes & Noble.
•Recommend and add my books on Goodreads, LibraryThing etc. if they're not already on there.
