Call for Street Team Members!

Call for Street Team Members!
I’m looking for readers interested in becoming part of my Street Team:

What the heck is a street team?
A street team is comprised of fans who wish to help get my books off the ground. Whether a member leaves a review on Amazon, Goodreads, Barnes and Noble, tweets or posts about the series on Facebook and Twitter—all help is immensely appreciated and in turn, rewarded. Good Karma always has a way of returning to you in the end!
What do you get for joining the Street Team?
There isn't a huge time commitment to being a member. As a member, you will join the online Facebook group and help spread the word about my books. Other than the knowledge that you are indeed an amazing human being, or a real-life superhero in disguise  . . . you’ll also get:

  •  First dibs PDF copies of ARCs (Advance Reader Copies). ARCs are books that are still in the works and will have some errors and may be slightly different from the final published copy. By accepting an ARC copy, you agree to not share, giveaway, or sell the copy off without my express permission.
  • First looks at cover art
  • Special street-team only giveaways and other swag and goodies that may pop up occasionally.
  • Promo materials such as bookmarks, flyers, etc. to those who want them.
There’s no obligation, and all that I ask is for you to have fun! Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

Ways Street Team members can participate:
You can do whatever you feel comfortable doing. It isn’t necessary to do all these, they are merely examples of ways you can help:
  • Join the Facebook group and get to know me. (If you’re a gamer, we’ll get along swell!)
  • Invite other readers (adults or older teens) to join the team.
  • Talk about my books on social media when you feel inspired - Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, Blogger, tumblr etc.
  • Host a contest on your social media platforms. (I can provide giveaway prizes within reason)
  • Spread the word to family and friends about my books. (But please don’t spam them! We don’t want to drive them away!)
  • Take promo materials such as books marks and flyers to local readers groups, coffee shops, conventions, etc. that permit them. (If you run out, let me know and I’ll mail you more!)
  • Suggest one of my books for any book club in your area.
  • Ask your local library to order my books (or donate a copy)
  • Request the books up at your local indie store.
  • Use hashtags to get discussions going on books. (#TeamRil was created by one loyal reader of my Chronicles of Midgard series—it’s great!)
  • Post honest reviews on any site like Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes and Noble etc. (I can offer free PDF copies of ones you haven’t read and really want to read)
  • Add my books to your Goodreads lists.
  • Post about books on Release days and cover reveals.
  • Post about author news such as promos, appearances etc.
  • Share your favorite quotes from my books online.
  • Write a review for your local newspaper.
This is meant for those people who have either read and enjoyed my book, who want to play an active role in supporting me, or plan to read my books and want to be a part of something fun and unique.

Why am I doing this? 
  • To connect more to the readers who enjoyed my book and get the word out about my books in a more personal way. 
  • This one-on-one connection allows me to connect more on a personal level to thank you for your ongoing support!

If you are interested:
