What is a Street Team? Basically it’s a dedicated group of fans who help me spread the word about book releases, appearances, and news in exchange for swag and goodies. It’s easy, you can sign up in the form below. I’ll mail you some swag (some to keep and some to share), and every once in a while, I’ll send you a challenge (like voting for something online or sharing a link) where you can earn even more cool free stuff. Also, my street team gets access to monthly ebook giveaways and can request advance review copies as well. That’s it. Easy right? Pretty much, being on my squad makes life worth while. So what are you waiting for? Sign up already! Oh, and we also have a Facebook Page so you can keep up to date with all the happenings, and there are special prizes you can earn just for sharing stuff and generally being cool. Check it out here.
So what kinds of things might a team member do?
- Tell people you know about the books and share with friends & family to help spread the word
- Buy the books during the first week of release – this helps get books on bestseller lists and get noticed
- Ask your local library to order my books, give the librarians the title, name, and link
- Leave promo materials at local bookstores, coffee shops, or library – with permission!
- Share my social posts and post your own
- Feature interviews, reviews, excerpts or anything else on your blog, website, Facebook, etc…
- Visit during online appearances like chats and blog tours
- Connect me with people you know who you think would be interested
- Review the books as soon as possible at online retailers with your (honest) thoughts
