Hey, you!

Yeah, you, reading this right now.

I need your help.

You’re here because you dig what I’ve got to say and I really freaking appreciate that. And I’d like to enter into a little mutually beneficial arrangement where you help me out a bit and I give you advanced copies of my latest writing books and other exclusive goodies in return.

I’m starting a street team.

And while it’s going to be a work in progress for a while as I get it started up, there’s one part you can do now.

I’m looking for reviewers to offer their honest opinion on sites like Amazon and Goodreads for my latest book, Building a Writing Life. And if that sounds like something you’d be interested in, I’d be happy to send you a complimentary copy so you can get an early start on reading it before it’s released to the public.

What most people don’t realize is that a site like Amazon prioritizes or limits how it displays a book based on the number of reviews. In other words, when you post a review, even if it’s only a few words long, it can help make or break a book regardless of whether it’s positive or negative. So you’d be doing me a huge favor by making sure readers can actually find my book and, in exchange, you’d get a book you were probably going to buy anyway… for free AND before anyone else!

The more reviews, the more readers can find my books. The more readers can find each of my books, the more I can write! And, for those of you in this inner circle, that’ll mean more books you’ll get free advanced access to in exchange for your help spreading the word!

As we build up the team, I’ll be able to offer giveaways and other nifty swag to the team. I’m very excited for everything we’ll be able to do with this!

Sound like something you’re interested in? Make sure you’re on my mailing list here. The first invitation to join the team will go out next week so you’ll be one of the first to get in. And if you’re busy right now but you think you’d like to participate in the future? Go ahead and join now anyway. It’ll always be optional so you can opt-in and out as needed based on your schedule and interests.

And for sticking with me this far, thank you! It’s the support and readership of awesome people like you that have gotten me this far and for that I am incredibly grateful! And, hopefully, if we work together, we’ll be able to do even more in the future!
