As you probably know (you’ve likely heard me say it a dozen times), authors wouldn’t be ANYWHERE without our readers. At the end of the day, y’all are really the only group of people who matter to authors. So I thought, why not encourage my readers to be a part of my journey? I mean, my stories would just be words on a digital page if not for you. Shouldn’t you get to feel like a part of that somehow? Your kind words and encouragement and especially the hilarious small town stories you share are a huge part of the fuel that keeps me going. But up to now, I haven’t had a good way to keep up with all the great things you’ve said about my work, which means I haven’t had the chance to thank you personally.
So I decided to start The Squee Squad. Why the Squee Squad? Well, whenever I come across books I love, they make me squee with excitement and want to share them with everybody and their grandmother. And I’m hoping to find folks who are that excited about my books.
What’s in it for you?
- FREE BOOKS! Probably the biggest benefit to you will be getting an early copy of all new releases.
- My undying gratitude and devotion.
- Personal acknowledgments thanking you BY NAME inside every book release.
- And…other stuff as we get rolling and I figure out what kind of fun goodies I can afford.
This will be entirely separate from my reader mailing list–you will be part of the ELITE GROUP, the insiders who are right there with me. And in addition to getting free copies of EVERYTHING I release before anybody else, you’ll have the chance to see exactly what impact your support has on the success of my work. So consider this the VIP room.
Sound up your alley?
AWESOME. There’s just one caveat. Being part of the Squee Squad means you’ll be asked to leave a review of the books you receive within a certain time period after receiving your copies (usually 1-2 weeks). There is NOTHING better than a personal recommendation about books. If you’re inclined to recommend mine, then, sugar, you’re the perfect candidate for the Squee Squad!
So are you in?
After you sign up, you’ll be asked to confirm your email addy and I’ll be sending along more details. And as always, if you have any questions, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or catch me on Facebook or Twitter.
Thanks so much for your hard work and support!
