You're invited, and I'd love to have you! (Kate, here, by the way.)
case you aren't familiar with the concept, they can work a few
different ways, depending on the author, the book, and the publishing
house, but basically it's a team of people who sign up to help promote
and support a book through word of mouth. You don't have to have a large
social media platform-- it's just as helpful to suggest the book to
your friends and family and do on-the-ground support. The power of fans
is huge, and I'd love to have anyone involved who either has read and
loves How We Fall or supports my writing. (Click the image to see the book description.)
What kind of things might you be doing? Asking your library and bookstores to stock How We Fall,
telling family and friends about it, placing preorders, adding the book
on Goodreads, hosting the cover reveal, sharing teasers on Twitter,
Facebook, your blog, etc.
What are the perks of being on my street team?
Sneak peaks, a chance to have a character in a later book named after
you, a chance to win an annotated ARC, awesome swag like bookmarks and
buttons, updates about what's going on behind the scenes, and of course,
my sincere gratitude and appreciation. I'll have a few surprises in the
Thank you to every one of you who has been reading our Pub Hub posts, following me on Twitter, and making a space for me to talk about
my books and hear about yours. The community of writers and readers is a
wonderful place to be.
