INTRODUCING PALS …
As you probably know (and as I’ve said a million times), authors wouldn’t be anywhere without our readers. Ignoring all the politics and back-room dealings of Big Publishing, the reality is that only one group of people really matters to me – and that’s YOU, the reader.
So, I thought to myself, why not encourage my readers to be an even bigger part of my journey? It’s thanks to you that I get to write in the first place and it’s your encouragement and kind reviews that keep me going when things get tough. Until now, I haven’t really had a way of keeping tabs on all the wonderful things you’ve been saying about my work – meaning that I haven’t been able to thank you personally – but I think I’ve come up with a solution…
Starting today, I’m launching PALS aka Pink’s Awesome Launch Squad …. I had toyed with other names, but I think this sums up what I’m aiming for. Here’s the deal:
Sign up below to join PALS, and, in return you’ll get:
- Free advance preview copies of EVERYTHING I release – including books and audiobooks (and any other cool formats that come along – virtual reality, maybe?)
- Personal acknowledgements thanking you by name inside every book release (both digital and print)
- Cool prizes awarded once a month – just for signing up, I’ll add your name to regular raffles to win signed paperback copies, Amazon gift cards, Kindle ereaders, and other swag (in addition to the giveaways I run for my regular Readers’ Group)
This is completely different to being a part of my Readers’ Group. With PALS, you’ll be part of a select group of super-awesome readers and, in addition to getting free copies of EVERYTHING I release before anyone else, you’ll get to see exactly what impact your support has on the success of my work. In short, think of PALS as a VIP Membership Scheme. If it does well, maybe we’ll even get to open up some airport lounges. Who knows?
If this sounds like something that you’d like to be part of, there’s only one caveat. Being part of Pink’s Awesome Launch Squad means that you’ll be asked to leave a review of the books you receive within a certain time period after receiving your copies (usually 1 – 2 weeks). As far as catches go, I’m hoping that’s not too bad! So, if you’d like to be part of the squad, just sign up below!
After you’ve signed up, you’ll be asked to confirm your email address. As always, if you have any questions at all, please feel free to email me at info (at) marishapink.com.
Thanks for all your support!
