Sharla’s Southern Sasses!
SHARLA’S SOUTHERN SASSES STREET TEAM
Why a street team? Because things work better when done with friends. Writing is a solitary endeavor, and marketing and promotion is not. I need help—your help—in order to succeed.
Mission: Our mission in being involved in my Street Team is to alert others to me and my books.
For ebooks: Ebook promo is a little easier. It’s just pimping on the internet wherever you can. 🙂 Linking to my purchase links, my website www.sharlalovelace.com/my-books , my author Facebook page www.facebook.com/sharlalovelace , my Goodreads account www.goodreads.com/sharlalovelace , and talking up my new releases, showing off the covers whenever you can. Any and all is appreciated!
For print books: You’ll get bookmarks, postcards you can either mail or hand out, and mini booklets if applicable. Pass them out at your discretion to whomever you’d like. There is no time limit, so just do whatever makes you comfortable.
I also got tote bags made as a gift from me to you, but if you’re not a tote bag freak like me, I won’t add to your closet pile. LOL. But if you like them, I’m happy to send you one!
Several ideas of where to pass the goodies out are at book clubs, libraries, and book stores. You’d need to talk to the people at the libraries and bookstores before you leave anything, but most are receptive. If they don’t want it, no worries. Someone else will. You can also leave them in my books at bookstores. Just tuck them inside the cover.
It doesn’t have to be limited to the above places: Throw these things in your bag and hand out to your coworkers, your book club members, your bunko group, your church social, people at the gym, people at your daycare! Wherever there are readers. I can’t be everywhere, but I’d like my book to be. Also, if you are on social media, you are encouraged to Facebook and Tweet about it, whatever you are comfortable with, and give me feedback on what’s stirring interest. In return, you’ll get the secret handshake and decoder ring to know things before anyone else…LOL.
Seriously, I will give you a heads up on new releases and cover reveals before they are made public, and will occasionally draw names to win a signed finished book of releases before they hit the shelves.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or message me on Facebook to sign up, and I’ll send you an invite to the Facebook page I’ve set up to communicate with everyone. That’s where we have ALL the fun. 😉 You can also go there directly to the page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/StreetPeeps/ and “Join”. See you there!
Thanks for being a Southern Sass !!!
