All right, chickadees, I’m looking for a few good readers to help me spread the word about my books. Membership is easy and free *and* comes with perks. Some of which are so secret that even I don’t know about them. :)
Seriously though, if you’re interested in joining my Street Team, I’d be thrilled to have you. A Street Team’s job is simple–help promote the author’s work. This can be accomplished in many ways–Twitter, Facebook, G+, Pinterest, or whatever is your social media of choice.
I’m still pounding out the details and filing down a few rough edges and hope to have something in place very soon. In the meantime you can join using the STREET TEAM tab on this site.
Street Team membership is not without perks. I’ve got a few introductory gifts to dole out as well as an exclusive drawing each month for the members. That means a drawing for prizes for the members only! YAY!
Hope you’ll join me in spreading the word!
Wait, of course that’s brilliant, when you add in the fact that I’m collecting peach recipes to add to the April newsletter. I’ve got one recipe to share as well as a couple to test out. Yes, it;s a tough job, but that’s how much you mean to me.
If you have a recipe starring peaches and you’d like to share it with the other readers, send me an email. You can use this site’s CONTACT ME or simply send it direct at email@example.com. Be it peach smoothie or gourmet peach souffle, we want to hear about it!
Thanks for reading and joining in! I appreciate you all!
Thanks to everyone who joined in our Easter egg hunt! Hope you had a good time. But there can be only one and the winner of the Easter basket and the last advanced copy of Katie’s Choice is…
I’m working on some great prizes for the next contest which is closely linked with my upcoming blog tour and launch of the next release in the Clover Ridge Series, Katie’s Choice.
In the meantime, stop by and join my new group on Facebook–The Clover Ridge Series Reader’s group. It’s a great place to converge and talk about the books in the Clover Ridge Series or even ask me questions about the series that might be a spoiler for those who haven’t read it. Hope you can come check it out!
And the last advanced copy of Katie’s Choice! All you have to do is click on my CONTEST page and find the Easter eggs in the picture. Leave a comment with how many you found. Winner will be drawn Monday morning! Thanks for entering!
I’m putting those final touches on the newsletter. I hope you’re getting excited. I know I am.
I’d like to thank everyone who entered the contest and signed up for the newsletter. Last night I employed my high tech, state of the art system of determining a winner (or in this case two) and we have our winners!
If that’s not you, don’t despair, soon I will be offering more chances to win fabulous prizes, But until then…get ready for the newsletter coming your way soon!
If it is you, send me an email so I can send you your prize! :)
I am launching my brand-spanking new newsletter this March. If all goes according to plan, I’ll have the newsletter in your email box by March 15. In each newsletter, I’ll have book updates, author appearances, review quotes, and more importantly–recipes!
If you’d like to send in a recipe, use the Contact Me form on my website (to keep your email out of the spam folder.) Recipes cannot be copyrighted and have to be original. Recipes do not have to be Amish, but that would be fabulous if anyone has any to share. I’d love to hear about Easter traditions, favorite dishes, and other stories concerning this special holiday.
All readers who sign up for my newsletter will be entered into a drawing to win an advanced copy of Katie’s Choice (which doesn’t release until May 1, 2013). If you’ve already signed up, never fear, you are in the drawing.
Please use the Contact Me form on my website to sign up for the newsletter–this will allow me to make sure you get your mail.
Addresses must be received by March 10, 2013, in order to be included in the first mailing and contest. Any addresses sent after this date will be including in future mailings, but not in the drawing or the launch.
Thanks for all your support! I’m looking forward to getting this together for you.
FYI–Frequency of the newsletter will depend a lot on reader participation. I’d like to share as many recipes as possible. But I won’t send more than one email a month. (I gotta write too, ya know! <wink>)
Blessings to everyone and thanks again for your support!
