New Goal Added!
 


I'm excited to reveal a NEW first goal we're aiming for! 


$50

When WE reach this goal WE will have 'in-house' PATRON ONLY monthly contests, where you enter to WIN one of two things : 

  • A book review personally written by me -- or -- 
  • A promotional book trailer created by me!  


I get a huge amount of book review requests daily, so winning this contest as one of my patrons gives you THE CHANCE TO JUMP THE QUEUE! 

Remember you're not paying for a review, or book trailer, these are my competition prizes - REWARDS - for you, my patrons!  ;)  

Whether you pay $1 or $50 you'll ALL be invited to enter once these contests go live. 

Let's hope we reach this goal soon! 

Sassy 

:) 

P.S. Thanks for your continued support. Here's to the success of everything we're aiming for, and a great future for all!

  In addition to the above, I can provide 8 hours of PA/VA assistance at this level per month, and help save you time and effort in the following areas:

  • Organise and maintain FB ARC/Street Team 
  • Manage, promote and maintain your social media presence as an 'Admin'. (Great for Facebook Fan Pages and Closed Author Groups to strengthen loyalty and exposure). 
  • Create and handle newsletter for fan base connection and awareness. 
  • Refresh and maintain websites: Amazon Author pages, Goodreads (I'm a Goodreads Librarian) whilst assisting to increase readership.
  • Marketing campaigns and blogger outreach.
  • Beta read.
  • Create and handle giveaways. 
  • Work closely offering a friendly, personal touch as a sounding board, cheerleader and advocate. 
  • Offer support and fresh ideas for new ventures and promotions from conception through to completion.  


I recognise every author has different needs, so I'm open to discussion and negotiation which options you'd like at this level. 


In some cases you may only need this level for a month.  For example, 8 hours of beta reading of your novel. Totally up to you. Happy to discuss. Every author has different needs. 


Once I hear from you we can have a chat with regard to how I can be of assistance to you.  Thank you!
