So I haven't posted nearly as much recently as I normally would - fail! Sorry. I'll get back into the habit, I promise. Although I kind of have a good reason but you might not think its a worthy excuse. So I don't know how many of you know about my Facebook Group, Author Friends With Benefits? Well if you don't, it's a community of authors who support and encourage each other. It's also a bit of a one stop shop for whatever they might need. We're developing a new website and so all the design stuff has gotten my tied down and busy, not to mention I'm editing two books right now (I know you'll love them both when their authors release them).
But one of the awesome things this new site is going to offer readers is... why am I only telling you one benefit of being an AFWB Reader. I should tell you a bit more than that, right? Let's go with three; it's a lucky number, right?
No. 1 Readers can sign up to our mailing list to hear about crazy arsed events, giveaways and book discounts. If you read as much as I do, the occasional freebie is essential or I'd be poor.
No. 2 Readers can join our reading tournaments - where get this - you get to read 20 books completely free. All you have to do, is give a little bit of feedback to the author. Discuss what you think, where it can improve, what you love and what you hate. If you want you can also review the books - no one says no to an honest review!
No. 3 Readers can join our book club. It's a great way to make friends with other readers, meet some authors and get some more free books - do you get the theme yet?
No. 4 Did I say I'd stop at three? Sorry I'm on a roll and a little two excited. Any reviews you write, we'll publish on our blog and you'll get to see your name in print.
No. 5 Still need more reason to come to our launch event, that's fine because I have more... We're going to be running courses in creative writing for any of our authors who want to become authors.
No. 7 more you say? Creative Writing Competitions - and if you win, we'll publish your short story alongside the work of our authors in our annual charity anthology!
Have I won you yet. I hope so! Come along on the 27th May to find out all about Author Friends With Benefits - I promise you won't regret it. Make sure to RSVP.
