I read once that an author should have at least 1,000 readers. That sounds like a lot, especially since as of April 18th, 2017, I have two (Hello! Mary and Dave).
Now’s your opportunity
I’m just at the beginning of my writing journey. Actually. that’s not true, more like I’m near the beginning, I’ve been writing for years and now I’m working on getting my art out there. Which is where you come in – maybe, fingers crossed.
Step One. Read something and see if you like it. Here are two pieces in two genres for you to check out.
- Chick Lit – “Caroline Bingley Preview“
- Sci-fi – “The Paradox of Forgiveness – Vol. 1“
Step Two. If you liked what you read, sign up:
- Chick Lit – https://goo.gl/forms/ao7hLEf9IBpRsfRD2
- Sci-fi – https://goo.gl/forms/oDg8CWiEvKigQbo53
Step Three. Wait for the magic.
Why would you sign up?
To be entertained of course.
Which bring me to the first and last rule. Only sign up if you enjoyed what you read. Don’t sign up to be nice, or because you like me or to be supportive. If you want to do any of those things, awesome, thank you, please sign up for my newsletter or follow me on facebook, or twitter or something.
If you sign up to be one of my first 1000 readers- my intention is to send you updates, offers, and freebies relating just to my writing in that genre. For example, if I have a free or cheap promo on Amazon/Smashwords or VIP tickets for a book tour – I’ll let you know. Think of this as an OPPORTUNITY to support an early stage writer, with your attention and enthusiasm. Like investing in Google or J.K. Rowling pre-IPO.
All that to say, I have no idea where this train will take us, but you are invited to come along for the ride.
Eventually, I will assign numbers, first come first serve — and if I become cool you can brag about how low your number is. Full disclosure: I should warn you that I will never, ever be cool – but sometimes “massively uncool” becomes cool, which is both annoying and true, so you have that to look forward to.
