Wanted: Street Team
Calling all readers, bloggers, reviewers, contemporary romance and romantic suspense lovers. I’m putting together a Street Team to help spread the word about my current books and new releases.
Join the Karen/K.L. Docter Street Team!
Every author needs help spreading the word about their books through reviews as well as recommendations from readers to their family, friends, book clubs, libraries, book stores, etc. Here are more things you can do as a Street Team member:
• Share your honest, positive review of my book(s) on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, Goodreads, iTunes, etc.
• Follow me on Twitter at KarenDocter and re-Tweet my Tweets about my books or make up some great Tweets of your own.
• Join my Karen Docter Author Page (contemporary romance) and K.L. Docter Author Page (romantic suspense) on Facebook and share some of my posts on your own page.
• Visit the blogs where I am being interviewed and post a comment. There are often free prizes involved.
• BTW, always participate in BlogHops. They are a lot of fun. You get to meet a lot of other authors, but the best part is there are a ton of free books and other prizes!
• Recommend my books to your family, friends, book clubs, libraries, bookstores, etc.
• Please buy my books the first week of release, which helps them get on the bestseller lists.
• Ask your library to order my books. All librarians keep a running list of books their patrons request. They have a budget to order new books. Just give them the book title, author name, and publisher. [Note: I am an Indie author, so give them Karen Docter (contemporary romance) or K.L. Docter (romantic suspense) as the publisher.]
• If my books aren’t on the shelf at your bookstore, ask the bookseller to order them. (Like libraries, they also keep a running list of books their customers request.)
Remember: Do what you’re comfortable with. Even if you do just one thing on the lists, you are being a tremendous support.
As a member of my Street Team, here’s some of what you get:
• A free eBook (Advanced Reader Copy/ARC) in exchange for your honest, positive review on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, Goodreads, iTunes, etc. (Just email me at email@example.com (contemporary romance) or firstname.lastname@example.org (romantic suspense) with your name, city/state, and a link to your review. Easy!)
• Karen/K.L. Docter’s Free eBook Alerts of fantastic eBooks for your eReader announced on my blog website (www.karendocter.com) and my Facebook pages.
• A chance to win giveaways and/or autographed books in my Street Team only contests. (All Street Team members will be automatically entered.)
• An opportunity to have one of my characters named after you in my next book.
• A chance to name a character in a future book.
