Joining an author’s launch team provides some really great benefits. You receive a copy of the author’s books before anyone else…and you receive them for free.
Being a member of a launch team also brings with it responsibility. While you receive the author’s books for free, you are also expected to read and review the book before Launch Day–that is, the day the book goes on sale to the general public.
Here’s how it works. If you’ve found an author whose writing you really enjoy and who is looking for members to join his/her launch team, you can let them know you are interested. For example, I am always looking for readers willing to participate. If you’d like to join my launch team, please click one of the launch team links on this page.
ABOUT MY LAUNCH TEAM
As of this writing in late August 2020, I just finished launching my novel Green Bay Outsiders and had a great group of readers help with that launch. In late September, I expect to announce the next work of fiction. Anyone who signs on my launch team now can participate in the launch of that book.
Now, as far as the above-mentioned book reviews go, I should probably clarify that it’s NOT you responsibility to read the novel and leave a GOOD review on Amazon. All I’m asking is that you leave an HONEST review.
If you like the book, leave a review stating that. But if you don’t like the book, by all means, leave a review indicating that as well. It is the author’s job to write a good book and if I were to fail, I would look forward to readers’ constructive feedback so I can apply that useful advice to my next work.
Since online retailers such as Amazon consider a variety of factors (including the number of published book reviews) when deciding which books to present to readers for something to read, book reviews area always helpful.
So that’s it! Are you interested in joining my launch team? If so, please click the link below, or the one at the top of this page, and thank you. It means a lot to me that you would invest your time in reading my novels. Feel free to drop a line at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or comments.
