NOW CLOSED!!! Official Call for Members of #TeamONE!!!

Please note: the call for members of TeamONE is now CLOSED, since we hit fifty members!  Wooohooo! Thank you so much, everyone!!! 

Last month, I announced that I’m self-publishing my debut novel, ONE, about a girl with half a superpower and the boy who makes her fly. It comes out in June, and I’m hoping that the characters I love so much reach a TON of readers, and that they love them, too. 

We all know that one of the most challenging parts of making a book successful is getting the word out. Selling books is not like selling food, or toothbrushes, or snuggly winter sweaters. No one literally needs a book.  

So, what makes someone buy a book? And more importantly than that, one book over another?
Enthusiasm. Excitement. Bouncing and squealing and grinning recommendations from people they know and trust.

But the world is so big and I, the author am so small! How will I ever recommend ONE to even a fraction of the people in this world who might enjoy it?

Well, the answer, I hope, is Street Team – a group of people who have read the novel and liked it, AND THEN do their best to gab about it in reviews, in blog posts, on social media, and in person to anyone who seems like they’d enjoy reading it.

Then I thank them profusely with ARCs, book swag, loud public exultation, and all the (virtual, non creepy) hugs and kisses they can stand.

I’m super lucky that there are about 35 members signed up for #TeamONE already. I’m looking for 15-20 more people to join. It could be anyone – kids, teens, adults; readers or writers; teachers, book club members; anyone who rides an elevator or stands in a grocery checkout line or watches their kid on the sidelines at soccer practice. I may not be able to send ARCs to everyone - my awesome assistant and I are going to make that decision when we see all the entries - but either way, I'd love for you all to sign up. *smile*

If you’re interested in joining up, would you do me a HUGE favor by clicking this link to sign up
