As you probably know (and as I’ve said a gazillion times) authors wouldn’t be anywhere without our readers. Ignoring all the politics and back-room dealings of Big Publishing, the reality is that only one group of people really matters to authors – and that’s YOU, the reader.
So, I figured, why not encourage my readers to be part of my journey? After all, it’s all thanks to you that I get to write in the first place – shouldn’t you get to feel part of that somehow? It’s your encouragement and kind reviews that keep me going, but, until now, I’ve never had a way of keeping tabs on all the wonderful things you’ve been saying about my work – meaning I haven’t been able to thank you personally.
Well, I think I’ve come up with a solution. Starting today, I’m launching the C.J. Anaya Launch Team… I had toyed with other names (The League of Extraordinary Awesomeness was a close second) but I think this sums up what I’m aiming for.
Sign up below to join the Launch Team, and in return you’ll get:
Free advance preview copies of EVERYTHING I release – including books and audiobooks (and any other cool formats that come along – virtual reality, maybe?)
Personal acknowledgements thanking you by name inside every book release (both digital and paper)
Cool prizes awarded once a month – just for signing up, I’ll add your name to regular raffles to win signed paper copies, Amazon Gift Cards, Kindle ereaders, and other swag (in addition to the prize draws I run for my regular newsletter) I've become a superfan of Perfectly Posh products so don't be surprised if gift bags for pampering yourself are involved.
This is completely different to being part of my mailing list – you’ll be part of a select group of super-awesome readers. And, in addition to getting free copies of EVERYTHING I release before anyone else, you get to see exactly what impact your support has on the success of my work. In short, think of this as a VIP Membership Scheme. If it does well, maybe we’ll even get to open up some airport lounges. Who knows?
If this sounds like something you’d like to be part of, there’s only one caveat. Being part of the Launch Team means you’ll be asked to leave a review of the books you receive within a certain time period after receiving your copies (usually 1 – 2 weeks). As far as catches go, I’m hoping that’s not too bad! So, if you’d like to be part of the team, just sign up by clicking the button below!
