Where would we be without the support of our readers? It humbles me that some of our readers not only read our books but go extra mile by writing reviews, spreading the word, creating beautiful memes for our books, and simply encouraging us. It truly means a lot to us, and my heartfelt thanks to all of you.
I heard different names for the core group of author’s supporters: street team, launch team, ARC team, or even dream team. Frankly, I feel I need to do a much better job with my street team, but I do love them to pieces, and I hope they know it. Many of readers on the team became good cyber friends, and I’m grateful when I can pray for them, wish them Happy Birthday, and give them ARCs to read before anybody else has a chance to read my new book.
And yes, this is going to be one more post (this should be it, honest!) where I’m going to ask for your input. I want to learn how to give back to my team in a better and more meaningful way.
Are you on any author’s street team? Why do you enjoy being on their team? Are there any things that you dislike? As an author, how can I make members of my team feel appreciated, besides the things I’m doing already?
I usually request people to be on my team who already read (and hopefully liked!) my books. But this is such a great community of readers here on Inspy Romance that if you’d like to be on my street team, I’ll be happy to have you! If you’re on Facebook and would like to join my street team, here’s the link to my group. (If you’re not on Facebook, I’ll be happy to email you ARCs via email). I’m sure you saw that one coming, right?
Speaking of memes created by street team members, I love this meme done by Marylin Furumasu for my book, Love Me (her website is www.mfliteraryworks.com). I think it captivates the theme of friendship between three childhood friends and new beginnings beautifully.
