Authors wouldn’t be anywhere without our readers. Ignoring all the politics and back-room dealings of Big Publishing, the reality is that only one group of people really matters to authors – and that’s YOU, the Faithful Reader.
I really appreciate my readers and I wanted to come up with a way for you to be a part of my journey. After all, it’s all thanks to you that I get to write in the first place. Shouldn’t you get to feel part of that somehow? It’s your encouragement and kind reviews that keep me going. I wanted to come up with a better way of acknowledging it short of Thank You’s in my Reader Newsletter or social media pages.
Well, I came up with a really cool solution. I created Mark’s Street Team… I had toyed with other names (Mark’s Cabal of Awesome Readers was a close second) but I think this sums up what I’m aiming for. Here’s the deal:
Sign up below to join my Street Team and in return, you’ll get free advance review copies of EVERYTHING I release!
This is completely different from being part of my Readers Newsletter. You’ll be part of a select group of super-awesome readers. And, in addition to getting free copies of EVERYTHING I release before anyone else, you get to see exactly what impact your support has on the success of my work. In short, think of this as a VIP Membership.
For decades, authors and publishers have sent Advance Review Copies of their books to media and publishing industry insiders for reviews in advance of a book launch. The everyday Faithful Reader never had the opportunity to be an earlier reviewer. Well, as a member of my Steet Team, you get to be the insider and let your opinions be heard! And while big publishing houses get to filter the reviews so only the most glowing reviews are seen, I’m asking for everyone’s honest review.
If this sounds like something you’d like to be part of, there’s only one caveat. Being part of the Street Team means you’ll be asked to leave a review of the books you receive within a certain time period after receiving your copies (usually a few weeks). As far as catches go, I’m hoping that’s not too bad! So, if you’d like to be part of the team, just sign up below!
After you’ve signed up, I’ll send you more details. As always, if you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact me here or get in touch via Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/markdameauthor/.
Thanks for all your hard work and support!
