[Side note: a lot of readers have been asking how they can help spread the word. By far the most effective thing a reader can do to help is post on social media with a photo/image of Arcane, along with an honest but casual explanation of why they loved it. This sort of engagement has been found to be an incredibly powerful tool readers can utilize to help their favorite authors.]
ADVANCE READER TEAM
STATUS: CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING APPLICANTS. WILL OPEN AGAIN IN FEBRUARY.
What’s an Advance Reader Team?
The Advance Reader Team is a select group of readers who have volunteered to read and review advance copies of my new releases. A few weeks before release day, publishers send Advance Review Copies (ARCs) to select readers in exchange for an honest review of the book on Amazon.com. These reviews are critical in helping launch the book off the ground.
Upsides of joining the team?
You get a free electronic copy of each new book.
You get to read it before anyone else.
You help other readers get a clearer sense of the new book.
You make a difference in one author’s life.
Since advance reviews are critical to the success of a newly launched book, the book needs to be read before the day of the release, and the review must be ready to be posted on Amazon.com on release day.
How do I apply?
1. Honestly review any of the following on Amazon: Arcane and/or Burden’s Edge. Bonus points if you also leave a review on Goodreads, and double bonus points if you leave more than one review on any of my other books on Amazon (Riven, Valor, Clash, Legend, Honor’s Price :)
2. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org inquiring if you can join my Advance Review Team. Please include a copy/screenshot of your Amazon review (or simply include a link to it). This is to ensure that you have an Amazon account in good standing and are able to leave a review.
3. Join my newsletter as this is how you’ll know of upcoming releases and ARCs.
I can’t express my gratitude enough to those that apply. Thank you so much :)
