Authors love readers (I mean, yeah. Duh!). And we really love it when readers love our books (again, duh!). So, when it’s time to launch a new book out into the world, we want as many people who might enjoy that book to find out about it. And we need help to do it.
Penelope’s Pursuit releases February 28, 2021 (yikes!) and I’m looking for a few great readers to help spread the word.
What is a launch team?
Well, not to put too fine a point on it, but it’s a team of readers that help launch that book…
Okay, I’ll be a bit more forthcoming than that.
See, I already have an AMAZING launch team of a couple dozen people who help me. But each book needs a few dedicated people who are excited about that specific book and are willing to devote a little bit of time each week leading up to and a few weeks after the launch.
At the end of the launch, we’ll close out that team and form the next one, so you’re only committing to a few minutes a week for about six weeks. We’re trying to keep it as easy as possible so we’re not making it feel like a burden instead of a blessing. We’ll ask that you do things like “ask your library to get a copy of the audiobook” or “share this image on Facebook today” or whatever.
During launch week, we’ll ask that you post a 2-3 sentence (more if you prefer but we’re only asking for a short one) review telling readers why they might want to read this book. That’s IT.
What’s in it for you?
Well, I hope a LOT! As part of the team you’ll get:
- An ebook copy of Penelope’s Pursuit
- The chance to win paperbacks of Penelope’s Pursuit and ebooks of others in the series (each book stands alone, though)
- The chance to win prizes such as gift cards, gifts related to the book, etc. in our Team Facebook Group
- Fun and encouragement
What’s in it for me?
- A review of Penelope’s Pursuit. By signing up, you are agreeing to review the book if at all possible
- Help spreading the word about the book
- A chance to get to know some of my readers even better and learn what you need from me in future books.
Again, this is a single, one-book commitment. You’re welcome to sign up for as many or as few as you like. I won’t be personally choosing the members to avoid my terrible habit of accepting EVERYONE who asks (yes, yes I do this). We want this to be simple for all and to do that, we do need to keep it limited.
PLEASE. If you aren’t selected for this team, don’t let that discourage you from applying for the next one. We’re eager to have everyone but… well.. yeah.
What’s the book about, though?
Well, here it is!
Mrs. Millie Crenshaw's selection process should ensure that her men and women have the best chance at a satisfactory (if not happy) lifetime together. If the rest of the world would just play by her rules, life would turn out just fine.
But they don't. And when young women go missing, one disappointed homesteader and a grieving young woman join forces to discover just where these brides-to-be are!More info →
I’m sold! How do I apply?
Simple. Just fill out this form. My launch team coordinator will be in contact with you by January 15th letting you know if you were accepted this time or if you need to apply for the next book. Thank you for your interest!
