Sneak Peek Candidates Wanted!
Job opening: From the Query to the Call Ebook Reviewers to participate in an email campaign.
1. Must read English.
2. Must have a blog where you will post your review of From the Query to the Call no later than Friday, September 11.
3. Must be willing to personally email 10 aspiring authors about From the Query to the Call no later than Monday, September 14.
Positions available: 25
That’s right! I need YOU! I’m willing to provide From the Query to the Call at a severely discounted price ($5) to 25 people who are willing to help me reach authors I don’t know. If you think this is something you can do, apply to elana (at) elanajohnson.com.
What you’ll do:
1. Receive From the Query to the Call for $5.
2. Read the ebook.
3. Give a review on your blog no later than Friday, September 11. Provide links to the Facebook fan page and Query to Call website.
4. Email 10 aspiring authors about the ebook no later than Monday, September 14. (This is an email outreach effort. Tell them about the book. The fan page on Facebook. The website. Why they should buy it.)
I don’t think this will take very long for anyone who applies. And you’ll be getting the ebook for 67% off! I happen to think that’s worth a lot.
What you’ll get from me:
1. Free publicity. I’ll put your name here on my blog as a Sneak Peek Reviewer, with a link to your review. I have almost 200 followers and twice that many subscribers. That’s 600 people who see my feed every day.
2. Undying gratitude.
Again, this is an EMAIL campaign. And the 10 authors you email must be people I don’t know. Now, how will you know this? Trust me, I think you’ll know. For example, Michelle McLean wouldn’t be able to email Christine Fonseca or Windy Aphayrath or Amanda Bonilla or Suzanne Palmeiri. She knows I know those people. You know? You know if you have writers you communicate with that I don’t. And if you don’t know that, ask me, okay? Okay. I’m willing to practically give away my product, but only if the product is going to get to people I normally can’t reach by myself.
Apply to elana (at) elanajohnson.com. Applications will be taken until the positions are filled.
Have a great weekend!
